The iPod has gone through quite a transformation since it first landed on the market as a music player. Today you can watch your favourite movies on it with the Netflix App. However, if you’re located in Canada, you’re only able to watch the Canadian Netflix version.

You can do this with your current Canadian Netflix account, and in fact, you can watch all other Netflix regions too!

Quick Step Guide

  1. First make a free Unlocator account
  2. Follow the setup guide for your iPod.
  3. Restart the iPod.
  4. After that, install the Netflix app from the App store.
  5. Once the Netflix App has been installed, you are ready to open the app and stream away.

That’s it! If you’re interested in getting a more thorough understanding of what lies behind and which other devices and channels Unlocator can provide, then read on.

How Unlocator Unblocks US Netflix and other Regions on the iPod in Canada

Netflix automatically registers in which region you’re located, when you want to use their service. This only allows you to watch Netflix from the specific region you’re located, if Netflix is even available there at all. However, with the help of Unlocator it hides your real location, whether you’re in a country where Netflix is available or not. This allows you to watch US Netflix or Netflix from any of the other regions which include Brazil, Mexico, UK, Ireland, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.

On top of that, besides changing regions as you please, your Internet speed will remain the same.

Can I keep my Existing Canadian Netflix Account?

Yes! No changes will take place with your Canadian Netflix account at all. It’s simply just the convenience of being able to change Netflix regions.

To change Netflix region, simply login to your “account page” at and switch to a different region. Then log out of the Netflix app and force restart the app. Force restarting the app is done by pressing twice on the home button, then find the Netflix app on the list, press the app till a small red minus sign appears and press the minus sign. The next time you log in, you will see content from the new region you have chosen. So in other words, you get access to all the Netflix content that is available across all of the Netflix regions in the world – all while located in Canada.
