I’m a Canadian.
I love Canada for lots and lots of reasons. However, access to content is NOT one of them. I love movies and TV shows (hence this blog) but it seems like we are getting the short end of the content stick every time we turn around.
Take Pandora Internet Radio as an example. If you live in America all this music is free, but if you live in Canada it gets blocked
Since I’m such a movie nut, I really hate the fact that my Canadian Netflix account is so inferior my friends US based Netflix accounts.
I have a couple of college buddies who love movies as much as I do. One day we were chatting about some decent movies available on Netflix to watch and they asked if I’d watched Good Will Hunting on Netflix, etc, etc. and I went to find these great movies but nope….I couldn’t watch them.
That’s when I found out that Netflix has different content options depending upon which country you are accessing it from. Of course, doing a bit of research proved what I had expected…the Canadian library inferior.
I was doing a bit of research after that and came across a site that showed me a solution to this problem. The site shows you a simple way to get American Netflix in Canada. It sounded too good to be true but thought I might as well give it a shot and worst case I’d be out 10 bucks.
To my surprise this trick actually worked.
So if you are also a Canadian or anyone who has a Netflix account but live outside of the USA then take my advice and get follow the blog www.americannetflixincanada.net and follow their solution. It really does work and is worth every penny.
It’s nice to finally be able to level the American and Canadian playing field when it comes to content and technology which is in my experience a very rare feeling.
