Does Surfshark work with Netflix?
First, it’s important to know what Surfshark and Netflix are.
Surfshark and Netflix Services
Surfshark is a popular VPN service that provides an anonymous connection to the Internet. It also offers ad and malware blocking capabilities among other awesome features.
Netflix probably doesn’t need an explanation due to its popularity. Netflix is a streaming service that offers a wide variety of award-winning TV shows, movies, anime, documentaries, and more.
Netflix has also now gotten into the production area and they are creating their own movies and TV shows.
Netflix has risen to one of the most popular streaming services in the world today.
Unfortunately, like many streaming services, Netflix employs geo-blocking technology which restricts access to content based on your location.
Netflix is available in over 190 different countries yet each country’s library is different. Those who reside in the United Kingdom may want access to the United States Netflix catalog and vice versa.
Many cord cutters have turned to VPNs (virtual private networks) to get around geo-blocking. A VPN will allow a person to connect to a server in a different country, making she/he appear as if they are located there.
Netflix has gotten extremely good at blocking popular VPNs from doing this and when we come across a one that still works, it’s worth celebrating!
This is what you see when using a VPN that doesn’t work with Netflix.
Does Surfshark Work with Netflix?
When I wrote my unbiased review of Surfshark VPN I did some testing to see if it was compatible with Netflix.
Usually, when I do this type of testing, I’m disappointed because it either doesn’t work at all or it’s hit and miss.
I’m happy to report as of this article, yes, Surfshark does work with Netflix.
See my video below where I demonstrate this on a Fire TV Stick 4K Max.
