One of the most common question on NordVPN is that, does it work with American Netflix? No doubt about it, NordVPN is one of the world most popular VPN service providers.
Now back to the question, does NordVPN work with US Netflix? The only simple answer is yes. NordVPN has fast servers, deep security features and excellent customer service
If you have a Netflix account, you may have noticed your available content is limited to your country. Netflix content differs from region to region and watching shows from a different region than the one you are in might seem impossible.
This can be extremely frustrating if, take, for instance, you are on vacation outside the US and suddenly lose access to your favourite shows. When Netflix announced its crusade against VPNs and proxies, no one expected it to be as successful as it proved to be.
Numerous popular services have waved the white flag and given up on battling against the mighty entertainment company. Still, there are a handful of VPN services that are still putting up a fight and NordVPN is one of them.
A Closer Look at NordVPN’s Subscription Plans
NordVPN has 3-different plans, a monthly plan, 1-year plan and 3-year plan. If you are travelling abroad for a short period of time, the 1-month plan is the best deal. However, if you live outside the United States, the 3-year plan is the best deal.
The main demerit of the 3-year plan is that it requires you to pay an upfront amount up to $107.64. The 1-month-at-a-time plan is more expensive over the long haul but might be the best option if you are on a budget.
Why You Need NordVPN to Unblock Netflix?
Netflix tries hard to eliminate the use of VPNs to bypass its geo-blocks. One of the ways it does this is by periodically blacklisting VPN IP ranges.
In one Netflix blacklisting move, a VPN with limited IP addresses can completely lose its ability to access Netflix outside the user’s actual region.
However, NordVPN has two excellent breaks through to these problems.
Firstly, it uses its ever-growing network of servers and server locations. Currently, it has over 4,800 servers across 62 countries of the globe. This allows NordVPN users of many IP addresses through which it sends your data and you can count on it being strongly encrypted.
NordVPN has several server types. NordVPN runs obfuscated servers. These servers hide the fact that the data being received has been encrypted using a VPN. Netflix cannot distinguish the data from everyday data, meaning fewer of NordVPN’s IP addresses get blacklisted.
