That’s because, occasionally, I let my TV go on a little vacation via the DNS settings on my Network. I do this because, simply put, Netflix USA has better content than Netflix Canada.
What does US Netflix have that Canada does not?
As I’ve discussed in previous articles, changing your DNS settings on your Smart TV, Apple TV, computer, or iPad and iPhone will give you access to Netflix USA and stop the annoying “You are not allowed to watch this video from your Country” we often see on our screens.
Some people may wonder if changing the DNS settings on your device is illegal. Long story short, the answer is no, the police are not going to bust down your door and slap the cuffs on you because you are exercising your right to enjoy better TV and movies. But it does violate Netflix terms and conditions, so really, it’s up to you. As it stands, I have yet to hear of anyone being banned from Netflix for editing your DNS settings.
More and more Canadians are switching it up to Netflix USA, and with good reason. If you’re wondering how to tell the difference between American and Canadian Netflix, click here.
