A number of VPN providers have reacted on the Netflix announcement that the service is now available worldwide.
While only a handful of locations do not currently have Netflix access, the available content can be minimal with even original Netflix series such as Orange is the New Black and House of Cards are not available.
Netflix users in recently added regions including Russia and India will experience even more restrictions, with only 722 and 740 respective titles available, compared to 5,748 in the US.
VPN providers such as OverPlay’s SmartDNS & VPN services are now offering viewers the change to see nearly 14,000 total offerings with their product.
OverPlay provides software and mobile apps for a variety of devices, allowing users worldwide to browse anonymously and securely, and thus have access to the full Netflix library.
IPVanish is also jumping on the bandwagon, stating “With the content restrictions imposed by various entities including national and local governments and media conglomerates, most Netflix users will be restricted to a fraction of Netflix offerings without the use of a VPN. Setting up and using IPVanish is easy – a simple download provides servers in more than 60 countries for subscribers to connect to.”
UnoDNS, another VPN provider, has published an infographic showing the availability of content in a number of Netflix territories. The company offers its UnoTelly service.
All these VPN providers not only provide support for Netflix, but a host of other streaming video services, including Hulu and BBC iPlayer.
