Netflix was the first major video-on-demand streaming service. In addition to making it easy for you to find all your favorite old TV shows, they began producing original content, including Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, and Ozark.
ProtonVPN users can watch Netflix on our VPN servers in almost every country
You can watch the majority of Netflix’s video content on our VPN servers, regardless of which country the server you connect to is located in.
However, a small portion of exclusive Netflix content is geo-restricted. To stream these TV shows or movies while using ProtonVPN, you will need to access the Plus servers located in the US, the UK, India, Italy, Australia, Germany, Canada, Japan, or France. Plus servers have a P icon next to them in our macOS and Windows apps. They can be found in the Plus servers list on our Android and iOS apps.
On your Android TV (app currently in beta testing), connecting to these countries will automatically connect you to a Plus server if you have the right subscription.
If you do not use a Plus server, Netflix may detect that you are using a VPN, which will alter the shows you can watch. Netflix offers more details here.
Plus servers are available for Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers. For the fastest and most reliable connection, please connect to the server that is closest to your current location. To find the nearest servers to you, check the full list of our servers.
ProtonVPN does not condone the use of our VPN service to bypass copyright regulations.
