At the start of this year Netflix cracked down hard on all services that let you access US Netflix in Canada. StrongVPN is one of the only services left that still works and allows you access. It is 100% safe to use.
How does StrongVPN get me US Netflix?
I know this can seem confusing, but here’s the most basic way to put it:
All Netflix accounts are the same. US, Canada, UK, any country! They’re all the same.
Netflix just determines which shows you get to watch based on where you’re connecting to Netflix from. (So that means even if you created your Netflix account in the US and came back to Canada, you would NOT have US Netflix)
This is where StrongVPN comes in – StrongVPN tricks Netflix into thinking you are connecting to them from the USA. This gives you full access to the Netflix USA content. Plus with StrongVPN you can switch to dozens of other countries for even more shows & movies. To switch to another country’s Netflix, just install StrongVPN on your computer or phone and follow the simple instructions.
How do I know if I'm on American Netflix?
To know if you're on American Netflix, search for the show "Sons of Anarchy" - if Sons of Anarchy shows up, you're on American Netflix! It's a pretty good series by the way, I recommend it. One of my favourite on US Netflix.
Can I switch back to Canadian Netflix?
Yep, you can. StrongVPN lets you access almost every country’s version of Netflix in the world. You can change it back and forth in a few clicks while using their app.
Is this legal to do in Canada?
I'm not a lawyer and can't give legal advice, but you can read this article by a Canadian Law Professor on the topic. It's 100% legal to watch US Netflix according to him. Millions of people around the world use programs similar to StrongVPN without putting their Netflix account at risk.
Is StrongVPN the best way to get US Netflix?
