The best VPN for Netflix in 2018: Deals and how to watch American Netflix in the UK

VPNs are becoming increasingly popular because they can ensure your security and privacy when browsing the web. Another reason is that they can get you access to Netflix content in other “regions”.

VPNs give you the ability to access a region’s Netflix content that you wouldn’t be able to otherwise. You can make the most out of your Netflix subscription and get access to more great movies and TV shows by simply editing your IP address to be of another region’s via any of the VPN services below.

How to Watch American Netflix in the UK

To get American Netflix content in the UK, open up your choice of VPN, select a US server in order to spoof your IP to a US address (this makes Netflix think you’re in America when you’re actually in the UK), then head over to Netflix.com and login. Voila! It’s as easy as that.

Is It Worth It?

If you’re thinking that using a VPN to access another region’s Netflix is illegal practice, don’t. It’s currently legal to watch Netflix while using a VPN, though it’s worth mentioning that Netflix’ terms of service states that it may restrict your account without compensation or notice if you are engaged in “improper” use.

In saying that, you’ll get a whole load of new content on top of new releases from just an additional £2.30 per month on top of your current Netflix subscription when you take advantage of this Mashable exclusive deal with PureVPN.

Editors notesThese VPN services worked with Netflix at the time we tested them. Netflix functionality is subject to change at a moment’s notice. If Netflix functionality changes for any of the VPNs listed, they’ll be taken off.
