How to Install Netflix from Outside the US
You bought Google Nexus 7 to keep you entertained while on the go. Most of the time — while being abroad. Well, I have some good news and some bad news. Full Netflix experience is only available for people living in the US and its territories. However, you can fully unblock US Netflix using the VPN (Virtual Private Network) service.
It may sound techie, but it is not. Simply you need to:
- Subscribe for a VPN account. In my opinion HideMyAss offer unparalleled VPN service for a fair price,
- Connect to the VPN following a simple guide provided by HideMyAss Team,
- Download the latest Netflix app from the Google Play (formerly Android Market) and install it,
- Simply load the Netflix app, sign in and enjoy your shows!
