First, check out which can be used to show which content is available on which country’s Netflix.

How to get American Netflix and Hulu (and much more…)

This method will actually allow you to access any geo-blocked US streaming service including:

  • Netflix
  • Hulu
  • HBO Now
  • MLB TV
  • Pandora
  • Spotify
  • NHL Gamecenter Live
  • NBA League Pass
  • and more…

This method uses a really great service called Unblock-Us. I’ve used them for years. I have used it for years to get different Netflix regions, access to Hulu in Canada as well as get access to SNL episodes (which for some god awful reason are next to impossible to find online outside of the US.

Unblock-Us is pretty simple actually.  It basically masks your computer’s DNS to tell Netflix of Hulu (or other service) that you are located somewhere else.  And it works really well!

How do I set it up?

The whole process is very simple. You first sign up for an account here. Once you have started a trial, Unblock-Us will give you access to some tutorials of how to use the service. If it’s just on your laptop that you need US Netflix access, then it is REALLY simple. You just activate the service through your web browser. If you want to give access to all of the devices on your home network then you can also setup the service at your router (which is a bit more complicated).

So if you want better video streaming content, go on over to Unblock-Us and sign up for their 7 day trial. If you decide to stick with it, it is $4.99 a month (in Canada) which in my opinion is well worth it to not only get access to US Netflix, but also all kinds of other geoblocked content.
