Best VPN for Netflix (Updated September 2020)

Netflix boasts of a gigantic catalog of films, TV shows, and originals from all genres but if you’ve been watching it closely then you’d realize that not every title is available everywhere. The most common workaround to this problem is to use a VPN but with hundreds of offerings, each claiming to be the best, it gets really confusing. That’s why I have made this list of best VPN apps that works with Netflix and lets you watch the content without any restrictions. Let’s begin.

Best VPN for Netflix

App VPN apps listed in this article are paid and thoroughly tested every day by our research team. Additionally, I would be updating this article periodically so that even if one app stops working, we can timely replace it.

1. PureVPN

Price: $0.99/mo on a yearly plan and comes with a 7-day free trial.

PureVPN is one of the reliable VPN services that offer a consistent user experience. It offers plenty of interesting features that elevate your internet usage. With features such as Split Tunneling, Internet Kill Switch, 10 multi-logins, you can be sure of its performance.

Talking about numbers, PureVPN has more than 2000 servers all over the globe that would let you access the Netflix content from those countries. For example, Black Panther is only available in South Korea and PureVPN lets you watch it without any hurdles. However, there is a slight problem with PureVPN, it doesn’t work right out of the box. You have to search the Netflix title on Google and then watch it by tapping the link. You can read more about it here. Also, the browsing speed varies from mode to mode but never dips below 50% of your connection speed.

Key Features

  • 2000+ servers in 140+ countries
  • 10 simultaneous logins
  • Apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Android TV, Router, Linux
  • 30-day money-back policy

2. Surfshark

Price:  $1.99/mo for 2 years plan. There is no free trial but offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Surfshark is another decent VPN service that offers a lot of bang for the buck. It sets itself apart with features such as unlimited devices, built-in adblocking, multihop, etc.

Unlike PureVPN, you don’t have to worry about your Netflix shows not showing up in the search box. It is designed to work with Netflix right out of the box and I tried a few different shows that are exclusively available in some countries. For example, Black Panther in South Korea, The Office in the U.S., etc. Not just that, Surfshark maintains a catalog of titles from 15 different libraries from all around the globe. The browsing speeds are not excellent but I managed to squeeze in streaming speeds with the VPN connected.

Key Features

  • 1700+ servers in 63 countries
  • Unlimited devices
  • Support for IKE, IPsec, OpenVPN protocols
  • Multihop
  • Apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Android TV, Firestick, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, Chrome, Firefox, etc.
  • 30-day money-back policy

3. ExpressVPN

Price: Plans start at $8.32/mo on a yearly plan and you do get a 30-day money-back guarantee.

ExpressVPN is one of the most reliable VPNs for watching geo-restricted content. ExpressVPN is loaded with features that you get with most paid VPN apps such as apps for every smart device, Kill Switch, Split tunneling, IKEv2, IPsec, l2TP, and OpenVPN. It has servers in over 160 locations in 90 countries.

Talking about Netflix content, you just need to connect to a country’s server and start watching the content. It’s that easy. Even though I was able to unlock content for every country but the browsing speeds were less than optimal. I mean, I could still stream the shows without any issues but the quality kept fluctuating. I would test it some more and find if there isn’t some problem with my connection.

Key Features

  • 160 locations in 94 countries
  • 5 simultaneous logins
  • Apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Firestick, PlayStation, Xbox, Router, etc
  • 30-day money-back policy

4. NordVPN

You’ve probably heard this name all over the internet and rightly so. NordVPN is a fast, reliable, and secure VPN that would take care of your Netflix woes. Speaking of features, NordVPN is at the frontlines with features such as dedicated IP, Kill Switch, P2P, ToR integration, etc.

The reason NordVPN is on the last is that it offers the best streaming experience, period. The streaming speeds are almost as my connection speed and the content is just a click away. During my testing, I got close to 80% of my connection speed while connected to VPN and that is higher than any VPN on the list.

NordVPN costs around $3.87/mo on a bi-yearly plan and comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Key Features

  • 5500+ servers in 59 countries
  • 6 simultaneous logins
  • Apps for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Android TV, Chrome, and Firefox
  • Dedicated IP
  • ToR integration
  • High-streaming speeds
  • 30-day money-back policy

Closing Words

These were the best VPN apps that I would recommend to you if you want to buy a VPN specifically for watching Netflix. The other features are always an added bonus such as ToR integration on NordVPN, and unlimited device logins on Surfshark. What do you think? Which VPN is best for you?
