According to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, the library differs in each country and it is due to the territorial licensing. For instance, if Netflix has a content license for the show “The Office” only in the US, then they cannot broadcast it globally due to licensing restriction. Sometimes another distributor already has the content rights for the show in the country, which is why Netflix cannot air the show in that country. Netflix can buy the rights of the show, but it also depends on the audience’s interest in the show.
Hence, both audience interest and licensing restrictions cause the library to vary from region to region. Now let’s talk unlocking international shows on Netflix Pakistan.
How to Get Access of another Country’s Netflix Library
To get access to another country’s Netflix library, you need to do the following.
- First, download a VPN in your computer or smartphone.
- After installing it in your device, run the VPN.
- Configure all the VPN settings as per your need.
- Once all the settings have been configured, turn on the VPN.
- Open the Netflix app or website and search for the show which isn’t available in your country. You will find the show in the library.
The problem with this method is that Netflix can easily detect the IP address where the heavy traffic is coming from. As a lot of people are using the same VPN, there is a chance that your VPN might not work after a few minutes because Netflix will block the IP address that has heavy traffic.
You can use any VPN to unlock the international shows in Netflix Pakistan. However, it is better to use VPNs like Express VPN, Nord VPN, CyberGhost etc. which are paid but provide numerous virtual locations as compared to the free VPNs.
Netflix has tightened their protocols against VPNs as of late, making it difficult for users to change the region. The above-mentioned method might work now, but we cannot guarantee that it will work forever.
