How To Watch Netflix Outside The U.S.

First you’ll need a Netflix account. If you don’t have a Netflix account and want to sign up, but can’t because you’re overseas this is where Spotflux also comes in.

Secondly you’ll need to install and run Spotflux. Your internet connection might drop for a minute after installing. Spotflux needs to makes some changes to the internet connection which temporarily disrupts the connection.

Spotflux routes all of your traffic through it’s servers in the U.S. tricking Netflix into thinking you’re in the U.S..
Allowing you to watch Netflix overseas for free, assuming you have a Netflix account.

Your connection might be slow for two reasons.
One, geologically the distance between you and Spotflux servers is great.
Two, your connection is already slow.

Not only does Spotflux encrypt your traffic to keep it safe from prying eyes, but it also removes ads, tracking cookies, and other malware.
According to their site:

The location and identity of your devices are concealed. Your connection to the internet is safe, more private, and unrestricted.

Spotflux is also useful if you’re using public WiFi because if your traffic isn’t encrypted anyone on the network can see what sites your browsing and potentially username/passwords.

    Spotflux works ok but does not work with PlayStation, Xbox, Smart TVS and so forth. I have been using https://unlocator.com instead, which works just great.

    • I should have clarified that this solutions was only for a computer. You would need to route all traffic through a proxy. Thank you for your comment!
