Every single day we watch our favorite movies and series at Netflix. It’s our lifestyle nowadays, isn’t it? But what should you do if you need to watch it from abroad? Any solutions? What kind of DNS setting may you need? And here we are. In this article (at least we hope so) you will find all the necessary information on how to access American (or even Canadian) Netflix on your device – laptop, Smart TV, XBOX One, PS4 or any other of yours. Sounds good, right? Let’s start?
What are American DNS codes needed for?
The first question which should be asked – what are you looking for? Let’s assume you are an USA citizen but you’re in another country now and you have a USA Netflix account, it means you do already have the American US to access your US Netflix account.
As you know DNS addresses are codes. According to the source, The Domain Name System (DNS) allows the names of websites with their basic IP addresses which adds efficiency in this process. These codes can be used by U.S. citizens who are currently abroad due to business trips, travel and more, and want to enjoy watching their favorite Netflix series or movie. Please notice, this codes list is not created to allow anyone to break the existing terms of the agreements or streaming rules and to be able to watch US Netflix even from another country.
Why people try to access US Netflix account in another country?
There are so many alternatives and opportunities, right? Not that simple. As some have seen firsthand, Netflix’s streaming movie offerings in other countries don’t compare to those of Americans or Canadians. Not even close. That means more options and much more choices for each of the users. We have collected all the best information available in the internet sources into one article to make your search completed. Follow technologeek blog and read the best news from the tech world.
This list of the American Netflix DNS codes should be working on Android devices, Xbox and PS4 consoles, IOS (Iphone, Ipad) devices, PC, laptops and even on Smart TV. Just follow the instructions below:
Recommendation: Don’t forget to use VPN service for this purpose to eliminate the security risk. There are many trully good options like NordVPN, ExpressVPN or free Opera VPN.
