ExpressVPN Works with Netflix

ExpressVPN claims to be one of the very rare VPN services which are still able to unblock US Netflix after the severe crackdown of Netflix against VPNs. We analyzed various reviews and users’ opinions to see how true ExpressVPN’s claim is and how effective it is in unblocking Netflix for smooth streaming.

So, at most of the places on the web including several reviews and users’ experiences on different social media sites like Reddit, ExpressVPN seems to work like charm for the users in unblocking US Netflix without any hassle at all. After verifying it on other sites, we have put it to test to see it ourselves. So, in the next section you will find the results of our test of ExpressVPN Netflix.

ExpressVPN Netflix Servers Test

It is time to put ExpressVPN up on the test to see its unblocking abilities and the Netflix streaming experience it gives. So, for the test, we used three different origin locations including Europe, Asia, and Australia and tested the Netflix unblocking abilities of ExpressVPN on more than five different US servers.

So our first test had the original location in Europe and we used the ExpressVPN app with OpenVPN protocol. We selected a server in New York and confirmed our IP address via the browser. After confirming our VPN connection to be working properly, we accessed the Netflix website to witness the incredible unblocking abilities of ExpressVPN for Netflix. We were able to stream any content from the US Netflix library with a decent speed and smooth streaming experience. We tried four other US servers and had the same results.

After this, we changed our original location by changing the location on router. With both of our other origin location IPs, Australia and Asia, we got the same results with ExpressVPN. The best thing is that ExpressVPN was functional with Netflix with all the US servers we tried and tested and all of them gave decent speed and smooth streaming experience on Netflix.
