How to avoid geo-restriction?

Netflix is accessible all around the world. But, certain media in Netflix are geo-restricted in some countries due to licensing restrictions. For example, Netflix US library offers a large number of top-rated media while comparing with other libraries. But, it is restricted outside the US. To access those restricted Netflix videos, you must need VPN (Virtual Private Network) on your Chromebook. It masks your real location and routes your internet traffic through the intermediary server in your preferred location. It also encrypts your online activities and prevents others from tracking your activities. There are so many VPNs available to bypass the Netflix geo-restriction. But, we recommend you use ExpressVPN. If you aren’t satisfied with ExpressVPN, take a look at other best Netflix VPNs.

Stream Netflix with ExpressVPN
  • Install VPN on Chromebook.
  • Launch the VPN and enter your login credentials.
  • Connect to the server where the particular media is accessible.
  • Now open Netflix and stream that particular media without any restrictions.

Final Thoughts

These are the steps required to stream Netflix on Chromebook. As we mentioned earlier, watching Netflix through the Android app will give you more flexibility. On the other hand, VPN is very important while accessing the geo-restricted Netflix videos. Thank you for visiting Techfollows.com.
