How to Watch US Netflix in Canada
If you are familiar with Netflix and are using Netflix in Canada- you may not know that US Netflix has almost 4 times as much content than Canadian Netflix. It is easy and inexpensive to watch US Netflix in Canada. Once you set up you can watch US netflix on all the Netflix enabled devices in your home.
The cost is 4.99 for US Proxy Server and the 7.99 a month for Netflix. No other hidden costs.
If you have an existing Canadian Netflix account you can try using free 7 day trial of UnBlockUS. You can sign up without using a credit card and takes seconds to register. It WILL work on most devices but you do have the free trial if you are worried.
If you can’t get US Netflix with your Canadian Netflix account using UnBlockUS then try registering for a US Netflix account. It is also a free trial (30 days). BUT I wouldn’t worry- try using your Canadian account first.
Here is an article on setting up a US Netflix account in Canada:
Set up US Netflix
You STILL need UnBlockUS even if you have a US Netflix account. Netflix can see what country you are in and using UnBlockUS tells Netflix servers that you have an American IP address.
An added bonus is that you can access ALL Netflix regions- including the UK and Mexico. You can change your region from your computer or device.
