Within this post I will try to guide you how to use Smart DNS or VPN to bypass all types of geo-restrictions, access and stream American Netflix on Apple TV in UK or worldwide.

People are not able to watch US Netflix outside US because the service allowed only for the citizens of US.

A Virtual Private Network performs like a second web sitting among you and the huge internet, you PC links to the VPN, that will connect to the internet. The Virtual Private Network itself can be located anywhere on the globe, however you want one that is in the America.

Proxy to Unblock American Netflix in UK
The second best method to access to geo-blocked content from US Netflix DNS if you are located anywhere outside the US is to make use of proxy server. Smart DNS proxy is generally a PC which relays and intercepts information among 2 different computers – you PC or Netflix DNS friendly streaming gadget and the US Netflix website.
Another major benefit of using a proxy server to unblock US Netflix is you can use various other Netflix friendly devices (rather than Laptop and PC) to watch the latest films and US media content.
Unblock American Netflix outside UK via Hola
Hola is a free of cost VPN service provider that works with your browser. You can use Hola on any browser like FireFox, Chrome, and Opera, but it does not compatible with Safari. Here is how to utilize Hola for unblock American Netflix anywhere:
- Open your web browser
- Visit the official page of Hole (hola.org)
- Now signup on their website
- After that you will get an email from Hola, just verify your account
- Now click on Get Hola.

The American flag will display on the top right corner of your browser. This shows that you are streaming from USA. After that you need to login to the Netflix site, but stop! I hope you already know that Netflix is under pressure to restrict VPNs and Hola, and in case you visit www.netflix.com is does not work. There is another way, access to movies.netflix.com. At the moment this looks like a charm, but we can’t say how long.
