A VPN sounds complicated! How difficult is it to install?

Getting a VPN set up isn't as complicated as it sounds, but it does require you to follow a few steps to get set up, and a VPN can work but complexity of set up depends what device you are using to watch. A Laptop/PC/Mobile device is very simple to set up, but if you're using a Smart TV/Set Top Box, then you need to use a VPN at router level. This can be done with sites such as Express VPN, where you will need to flash your router. Express VPN have a range of articles to guide you through this process, which is actually a lot more simple than it sounds.

If that still sounds too complex, we suggest using Smart DNS Proxy. This won't encrypt your traffic, and you won't be able to choose multiple Netflix regions - just the US, but you can set it up very easily on your router.

 

Express VPN

Express VPN is best known for being safe, secure and reliable. With over 94 different servers, Express VPN also opens up a range of countries for Netflix viewing. Each server may or may not work for Netflix, so you'll need to test different regions within Express VPN to optimise your viewing experience. Please note you'll also need to reset the Netflix app, browser or device if you do change country.

Pros

  • Easy to set up
  • Works across multiple devices
  • Has many Netflix capable servers (though you will need to check with live chat for the best ones, as they constantly change)
  • Very safe and secure
  • Works perfectly in China

Cons

  • Has limitations on router level compatability (must have certain models)
  • Limit of only 3 devices per account

 

NordVPN

NordVPN is a solid choice for Netflix browsing. It not only provides military grade encryption, but also offers up to 6 simultaneous connections, which is higher than usual. It was also voted by PC Mag as the top VPN two years in a row, and was voted as the Best Overall VPN by TechAdvisor in 2018. NordVPN is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS & Android, as well as some routers, selected smart TV's, Raspberry Pi devices and more.

Smart DNS Proxy

SmartDNS can automatically configure your internet at a router level to access multiple countries, for example UK's BBC iPlayer at the same time as the US Hulu or Netflix. It is very easy to set up, and the SmartDNS team has live chat to support you through any set up you need across multiple devices. The DNS itself doesn't encrypt your traffic, but it does allow you to bypass certain country restrictions.

Your subscription for the DNS will also come with a free VPN service, if this is required, however for most streaming needs a VPN is not always necessary. Please note that the DNS service is available in every country except Mainland China. If you would like to use SmartDNS in China, you will need to use their VPN instead.
