Netflix global expansion means that Netflix is now available in almost all countries including Poland. Having checked the Netflix Poland library, there are currently around 800 movies and TV shows available to stream. Compare that number to the 6000 titles available on US Netflix and no one will blame you if you fill like Netflix has let you down. Fortunately, there are two workarounds that enable you to unblock and watch US Netflix in Poland: VPN and Smart DNS proxy. Either method also unblocks other Netflix regions including UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, and France.
How to unblock and watch US Netflix in Poland via VPN or Smart DNS Proxy
VPN, or virtual private network, is used by millions around the world to unblock geoblocked streaming channels like American Netflix, HBO GO, and Hulu. VPN basically enables you to change your Polish IP address to an American one. This means that Netflix will think you are located in the USA and thus give you access to US Netflix instead of Netflix Poland.
With VPN, you can unblock all Netflix regions and thus the complete Netflix catalog.
VPN unblocks all US channels in Poland including US Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO GO, Crackle, Vudu, and Showtime.
How to Watch US Netflix in Poland using Smart DNS Proxy
If you want to unblock American Netflix and use local Polish streaming channels at the same time, use Smart DNS instead of VPN. With Smart DNS, you get to bypass regional restrictions without changing your IP address. Thus, you can watch American Netflix and Interia.TV, WPTV, or Filmbox at the same time for example.
While Smart DNS does not unblock all Netflix regions, you can switch to the most famous Netflix regions including US, UK, Denmark, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, or France.
Smart DNS can be setup on all your streaming devices. Watch American Netflix on iPad, Android, iPhone, Apple TV, Roku, Smart TV, Xbox, PS3, PS4, Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV.
Your Internet speed does not change when using Smart DNS which means better video streaming quality when compared to VPN.
If your ISP uses DNS hijacking or transparent proxies, use VPN instead of Smart DNS to unblock geoblocked channels.
To truly appreciate Netflix, you have to use VPN or Smart DNSand unblock different Netflix regions, thus, more movies and TV shows. If you are using any of these two methods to unblock US Netflix in Poland, please share your experience with us.
