Netflix is one of the must-have apps for Firestick users. However, if you’re based outside of the US, you may find that a huge chunk of your favorite content is restricted due to your location. All Netflix libraries have enough content to satisfy your entertainment needs; however, if you still feel the need to get your hands on the most desirable library of all, you may resort to Netflix VPN.
