Gaining access is simple and as far as we know not illegal just not advised. So scroll down until you find your browser or device then get watching all the US Netflix Exclusives.

PC – Google Chrome/FireFox

Meet Hola! Unblocker it’s a simple Google Chrome and Firefox Extension which will change your DNS to make it look like you’re a US resident. It works on a whole load of other websites as well such as CNN, Facebook, YouTube and many more. It installs as a little button in the top right of your Chrome browser which you just press and click enable. Then all you need to do is go to and boom US content. It really couldn’t be simpler.


Google Chrome Extension Download / Firefox Extension Download

Mobile – Android 

Earlier this year Hola behind the Google Chrome and Firefox extensions released an Android Application which does exactly the same functions and works as a VPN for your Android device.

    Woah, the American Netflix works like a charm with this plugin. But, I don’t like the permissions required; full access to my browsing and stuff.

    Thanks for the article. I personally use the UnoTelly DNS option. It’s ideal for content streaming because unlike VPNs, there is no internet speed loss when using it.
