Thousands of people in the USA are unlocking hidden Netflix movies and shows
Netflix has a huge database of movies and TV shows that they provide to users around the world BUT they don't show them all to every country!
So if you live in Canada, you can't watch "Knives Out".
Or "Better Call Saul".
Or "The Devil Wears Prada".
Americans can't watch "Hacksaw Ridge", "The Founder", or "Gremlins".
But there's a way to watch all of these titles and more. Use ExpressVPN!

But what is a VPN?
And what does it have to do with Netflix?
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a secure method of sending your internet traffic through another computer on the internet, while encrypting everything along the way.
Many businesses provide VPNs for the employees so they can work securely from home. So you know they're safe.
But what does this have to do with Netflix? Good question!
ExpressVPN makes Netflix think that you are actually in a different country! Like when you're travelling and watching Netflix on your laptop.
Your internet connection makes a detour through their secure servers located in other countries.
So when you log into Netflix, they see you as being in another country (Canada, USA, Australia, etc) and show you their catalogue for that country.
It's really that simple!
This sounds complicated
Especially all this about servers and detours
