Thanks to the wonderful invention of streaming services like Netflix and Stan, we’re pretty spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a new TV show or movie to watch.

But as a serial binger, I’ve well and truly exhausted Australian Netflix’s catalogue. And honestly, the fact that I know the US version has a bunch of shows I haven’t watched yet truly grinds my gears.

Thankfully, there’s a sneaky little hack that’ll grant you access to all of that US Netflix goodness (and it’s completely legal).

US Netflix is packed with a whopping 5500+ TV shows and movies, including heaps of stuff that’s not on our version. So why shouldn’t you have access to it?

Well, it turns out it’s way easier to get your hands on the highly coveted American Netflix catalogue than you probably thought.

So how do you do it?

1. Get Yourself a Netflix Account (Duh!)

Well this one is kind of obvious, but you can’t watch US Netflix without an actual Netflix subscription. Thankfully, your Aussie subscription will work just fine.

2. Sign Up For a VPN

A VPN (virtual private network) does a number of things including protecting yourself on public Wi-Fi networks, but they’re also really handy if you want to access overseas content like US Netflix, Hulu and HBO Go.

For $1.32 per month (5 year plan) or $2.47 (1 year plan) with PureVPN, you can have the entire US (and the rest of the world’s) Netflix catalogue in your hands. I’m no mathematician, but that’s considerably cheaper than paying for the plethora of streaming services you’re probably already paying for.

Oh, and did I mention a VPN also allows you to access the US versions of other services like Hulu, US Disney+ and HBO Go? It’s 2019 and we are truly spoilt for choice.

3. Download The Browser Extension

Once you’ve signed up for a VPN, all you need to do is download the PureVPN app or browser extension and the world of streaming is your goddamn oyster.

So what are you waiting for? Get some snacks and binge your way through everything they’ve got.
