Have you ever wanted to change the country that your Netflix content is delivered in? While it’s possible to change your Netflix account’s country, you’ll usually need to use a VPN to do it. But there’s a simple alternative. In this article, we’ll discuss how to change your Netflix country without using a VPN, and we’ll also go over why you may want to consider this option. So sit back, relax, and get ready to change your Netflix country.
The Easy Way
As we mentioned above, changing your Netflix country isn’t easy. You need to navigate through several stages, some of which may require technical knowledge. Luckily, there’s a faster and easier way to do it without using a VPN. Here’s how:
Step 1: Set Up An Account On A Non-English Version Of Netflix
The first thing you need to do is set up an account on a non-English version of Netflix. While you can get all of Netflix’s content in English, you can’t change the country that the service is delivered in. For example, you can’t download the popular series Stranger Things in English because it’s only available in the US on Netflix. But you can in Spanish or French or another language. So if you want to change your Netflix country, the first step is to log in to a different country’s app or website.
Now let’s say that you’re in Portugal and you have an account on Netflix. You can visit the Netflix Portugal website and log in just fine. But if you try to watch Stranger Things, you’ll see this message:
“O que estás a fazer?” (What are you doing?)
“Quem é o teu responsable?” (Who is your responsible?)
“Não podemos processar essa mensagem para ti.” (We cannot process this message for you.)
You probably think that something is wrong and that Netflix is blocking your access to Stranger Things. But this is not the case. The service is behaving correctly and is notifying you that the show is not available in Portugal (yet). So while you may have chosen Portugal as your country of residence, you’ll still need to wait until Netflix makes the show available in Portuguese.
To avoid any complications, make sure that your non-English version of Netflix is set to your country of residence before you start using it. This way, you’ll be able to access all of Netflix’s content without any problems.
Step 2: Search For Shows And Movies In The Language Of Your Choice
Once you’re logged in to a different country’s Netflix, the next step is to search for shows and movies in the language of your choice. For example, let’s say that you’re in Portugal and you have an Italian account on Netflix. You can still search for content in Italian or Portuguese. If you choose Portuguese, you’ll see most of Netflix’s content in Portuguese, but you’ll also see some shows and movies in Italian. So you’ll need to choose between the two — or learn to use them both!
Speaking of choosing, did you know that you can choose the language that you want to use when searching for shows and movies on Netflix? All you need to do is scroll down to the search bar at the top of the screen and click on the downward-pointing triangle to the left of it. Then, choose your language from the menu that pops up. It’s that easy!
It’s also worth noting that Netflix does support multiple accounts. So if you have an Italian account and a German account, you can add both of them as a favorite in your Netflix app. This way, you’ll be able to access all of the content that you want without any issues.
Step 3: Add Shows And Movies From English-Speaking Countries
The next step is to add shows and movies from English-speaking countries that you want to see. If you have an account on Netflix and you’ve viewed at least 12 films or 12 shows, then you’re eligible to add more content to your personal collection. So it’s worth it to go through this step. You may end up discovering a show or movie that you love and decide to add it to your collection. Remember: It’s a big commitment and it can take time to add content that you’ve watched to your personal collection.
Step 4: Update Your Profile Information
The last step in the process is to log in to your account on Netflix and update your profile information. This includes your name, date of birth, and country of residence. Did you know that you can change all of these details? Yes, it’s true! To do this, simply log in to your account and click on the wrench icon in the top right corner. Then, select the option to change your information. Did you also know that you can add a photo to your profile? Upload a picture that represents you. Make sure that it’s a legal size and not bigger than 2 MB in order to comply with Netflix’s terms of service — otherwise, you may not be able to add it to your profile. You can add your height and weight as well. This is useful for those who are tall or heavy. It can also improve your self-image. Adding these details may also help Netflix suggest movies and shows that you might like. So it’s not a bad idea to do this.
Changing your Netflix country isn’t easy, but it’s definitely doable. All you need is a little bit of patience and an internet connection. Plus, you can use this handy checklist to make sure that you don’t miss a step along the way.
