How to Get Round Geo-Restrictions on Netflix

by Roveen

Everybody knows that feeling. You hear about a great movie or series from a friend or read about it online from people far away from you. With your heart racing in anticipatory joy and your palms sweating in glee, you flick on your TV and go to Netflix.

With bated breath, you search for your movie or series mentioned. Then your heart stops, and your eyes widen in horror as you see the line ‘Not available in your location.’ Or You simply don’t find it.

You sink in despair and slam your hand on the couch in frustration.

Well, worry no more; below is how you can get around these restrictions and watch your favorite shows with no barriers.

Using VPN

The best way to change your Netflix location is to download a Virtual Private Network (VPN) system.

A premium VPN allows you to change your location and bypass the geo-restrictions. With VPN: once you log into your VPN, you pick a server in the country you want to stream from and on which the show or movie you like is available. You can then watch the shows, and if you encounter a block on that server, you can switch again.

Reputable VPN services like Express VPN or Nord VPN are among the most widely used services.

Clear your Cookies and Cache

Sometimes your cookies and caches can interfere with your VPN connection and lead to a Netflix proximity error. Thus, you can clear your cookies and caches to see it you get round this problem.

Open your browser, go to Settings > Privacy and security > Clear browsing data or history. Also, check the boxes to clear the cache.

Then go back and see if this has sorted out the issue that you have.
