Would you like to know how you can access the UK version of Netflix from Canada then read on – this trick is for you.
The UK version of Netflix has a lot of content not available in Canada. This is due to licensing agreements that differs from region to region. By using your existing Canadian Netflix account you can access all the UK content you like. All you need to do is fake your location.
Make Netflix Think you are Located in the UK Instead of Canada
All it takes to trick Netflix is faking your location. The reason is that Netflix will determine what content to give access to depending on your location, which in turn is determined on the background of your IP address. So what is an IP address? Well it is a unique number that you inherit from your ISP once you connect to the Internet. If you exchange your current IP address for one originating from the UK you can fool Netflix into serving the UK version. So how do you go about this?
Well it is actually extremely simple. By connecting to what is known as Virtual Private Network with a server located in the UK you will be able to inherit a UK IP address. Setting up a VPN tunnel is very easy and I recommend using Hide My Ass VPN for the purpose. Simply sign up for the service and install their application on either PC or Mac. Once that is done log into the app and select a server from the UK and connect. From that moment on you will appear to be located in the UK and you can head on over to Netflix once again and reload the webpage. Now your Canadian content will have been exchanged with the UK content and you are good to go.
It is as simple as that and it is worth mentioning that the VPN can be used for much more than getting the UK version of Netflix in Canada. You can fake your location to about 52 different countries and that way you can access content from all around the world. The VPN is a very handy tool and you can even access your Canadian Netflix account when travelling.
Anyhow that is all there is to it – enjoy and stream away.
