How to unblock and watch American Netflix in Thailand. Netflix is coming to South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Malaysia in 2016. However, Thai people and US/UK expats working or traveling to Thailand are not so lucky. You can use VPN or Smart DNS proxies to bypass regional restrictions imposed on Netflix. Using either method, you will be able to unblock and stream US, UK, Canadian, or French Netflix in Thailand.
How to unblock and watch American Netflix in Thailand with VPN or Smart DNS Proxy
If you visit the Netflix website in Thailand, you will be greeted by the following message. “Sorry, Netflix hasn’t come to this part of the world yet.” This means that Netflix is geoblocked in Thailand. Netflix is able to pinpoint your location by looking at your IP address. The reverse effect is that you can fool Netflix into thinking you are located in a country where Netflix is available by changing your IP address. That is exactly what VPN allows you to do.
By installing VPN and connecting to a US VPN server you unblock all US channels. The list includes Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, Showtime, WWE Network, Vudu, Amazon Instant Video, and more.
The location of the VPN server you connect to determines the Netflix region you can access. Each Netflix region has different content.
Besides changing your IP address, VPN also performs a complete encryption of your traffic. No more ISP spying on you.
Netflix Thailand – Watch American Netflix – Smart DNS
If you do not wish to change your IP address to unblock Netflix in Thailand, then Smart DNS is the way to go. Smart DNS allows you to access geoblocked channels by only partially redirecting your traffic. Therefore, you will not have to pay an Internet speed penalty to watch Netflix in Thailand.
Unlike VPN, Smart DNS unblocks geoblocked channels from different countries at the same time. Watch American Netflix and UK’s ITV simultaneously.
Smart DNS can be configured on all your streaming devices. Watch Netflix in Thailand on Android, iPhone, Apple TV, Chromecast, Smart TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS3, PS4, Xbox, PC, iPad, or Mac.
You might not be able to use Smart DNS properly if your ISP uses transparent proxies or DNS hijacking.
Whether Netflix Thailand will become official is yet to be seen. What’s sure is that you do not have to wait any longer. Just use Smart DNS or VPN to unblock and watch American Netflix in Thailand today.
