How to get around Netflix VPN block – Bypass the blacklist

Since the late 2000’s, Netflix has established itself as the best streaming service around when it comes to television series and movies.

As a result, its popularity has soared and is now available in 190 different countries across the world – though there are good and bad things about Netflix.

Due to the fact that it is now a global phenomenon, Netflix releases certain content to specific regions only meaning that some parts of the world have access to shows that others don’t.

This causes frustration to many people across the globe, as some users may really want to watch a specific series or movie that is part of the Netflix catalogue, just not in their country.

As a result, many people turn to VPN’s to try and get around this geographical hurdle. However, Netflix is pretty smart when it comes to spotting and disabling VPN’s so these efforts are usually futile.

In this article we are going to examine whether it is possible to get around the Netflix VPN block in order to try and find a solution to this issue.

How to get around Netflix VPN block – The only way

The best way to avoid the Netflix VPN block is to basically use a better VPN than the one you are currently using.

As mentioned earlier, Netflix has phenomenal technology when it comes to spotting and blocking IP addresses owned by VPN’s, therefore using a VPN service with a limited number of international servers quite simply will not a work.

As a result, the only way to get around Netflix’s VPN block is to use the most sophisticated and extensive VPN service out there. You may not be able to bypass VPN blocks by using VPNs that are on the Netflix blacklist.

This unfortunately means that you are going to have to dip in to your pockets and subscribe to a premium service, because free VPN services just aren’t up to scratch when it comes to bypassing Netflix’s technology.

Below, we are going to go through a couple of VPN’s which have form for bypassing Netflix’s block.

Please note though, that we can’t guarantee that any of these will work – they’ll just give you a better chance than standard, free ones do.


NordVPN is a popular choice for those looking to get around Netflix’s VPN due to the fact that it possesses over 5200 different international servers, giving users a plethora of options to try when it comes to trying to bypass the Netflix block.

The main plus point for NordVPN when it comes to Netflix, though, is the fact that it has dedicated IP addresses for each server.

This is a big deal due to the fact that VPN’s are often spotted by Netflix because they have matched IP addresses from when other users have tried the same method. By having a unique IP address, you bypass this problem.

The price for NordVPN is $4.92 on a 12 month plan and has a 30-day money back guarantee.


ExpressVPN is one of the best all-round VPN’s out there for just about every criteria you can imagine.

It possesses incredibly fast connection speeds, perfect for Netflix streaming, high-spec security to bypass any blockers and over 3,000 different international servers to try.

As you can expect, for a VPN of this quality you are going to have to pay for it. It comes at a price of $6.66 a month for a 15 month period and comes with a 30 day guarantee so you can get your money back if it isn’t working for you.

Considering that it is by far the fastest and most secure VPN out there, though, it’s well worth getting despite the the price.


CyberGhost is the final VPN that is worth looking at for getting around the Netflix VPN block. This is because they offer streaming specific servers, meaning it is a service geared towards watching Netflix.

In addition to this, they boast over 6,000 different servers and although some of them are relatively slow, if you are patient enough you will find one that works for you.

CyberGhost is the cheapest of the three VPN’s we’ve discussed today, coming in at a price of $3.49 a month on two year plan.

All three of these VPN’s are for use on a PC only. We wouldn’t recommend using a VPN on your television or phone to try and bypass Netflix’s VPN blocks.

If you want to use it to watch Netflix on your television then connect your PC to your TV using either a HDMI lead or Bluetooth if it’s a Smart TV.


To conclude, the best and only way to try and bypass Netflix’s VPN block is to purchase and use a premium VPN package. Netflix has a list of VPN providers that they blacklist, meaning if you use their IP address, they’ll be hit by the Netflix VPN ban.

The three services that we’ve suggested above are the three VPN’s on the market today that will give you the best chance of doing this. Nord works most of the time for a Netflix accessible VPN connection.

Once done, you can change your location and get access to a new Netflix library. So, it’s worth doing if you’re bored with what’s in your current Netflix account.
