Millions of people have had to cancel their trips to London because of the Coronavirus. Many of them had bought tickets for musicals and other events. But, instead of walking up and down Oxford Street, they are sitting at home in isolation, hoping that the pandemic will soon come to an end. But, why not enjoy yourself as you watch Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera on Netflix?
Maybe you are skeptical! We are not writing about the movies based on the stories. No, you can actually watch a recording of two actual performances of Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera on Netflix.
The Phantom of the Opera is a recording of a performance from Royal Albert Hall, while the Les Miserables musical is a recording of the 25th anniversary edition that was recorded in the O2 Arena in London in 2010.
Both are completely amazing, and you will have a fantastic time watching them. The music is incredible, and if you plan on keeping the musical in the background, you will not be able to do so. The singers are so talented, that you will always try to look at the screen to find out what is happening and to see who the person with such a magnificent voice is.
Can I purchase a Netflix subscription in the UK? How much does it cost? Will I be able to watch the content on Netflix in the United Kingdom all across the world if I purchase a subscription in the UK?
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to Netflix and when it comes to how the most popular of all streaming portals work and operate. People in the UK love shopping at Amazon.com, and many have an Amazon Prime subscription to get faster and cheaper shipping, and at the same time get access to lots of movies and Amazon TV series. But, if you travel to the United States, you cannot use your Amazon Prime subscription in the UK there.
So, that is why many people believe that they will have to purchase a new Netflix subscription in order to watch Netflix while in the UK. That is a mistake!
To watch Netflix in the United Kingdom, you simply need a Netflix subscription. To rephrase it… your Netflix subscription is global. You can use your Netflix subscription all across the world. It doesn’t matter where it was registered, the only thing that matters is that you actually have a Netflix account.
But, how does that influence the way you use Netflix? Well, now it is time to answer the question about whether or not you will be able to watch UK Netflix worldwide if you purchase a Netflix subscription in the UK!
Can I watch UK Netflix worldwide if I register a Netflix account in the UK?
If you decide to purchase a Netflix account while in the United Kingdom, you will, of course, be able to stream the content of UK Netflix while in the UK. In fact, if you travel to any other EU country, you will still see the content available on Netflix in the UK. This is due to the streaming regulations implemented by the EU in 2018, which says that you should always watch your home Netflix content as you travel within the EU.
But, in the moment you leave the EU, you will no longer see the content of UK Netflix, but instead, you will see the content available on Netflix in the country you are in. If you travel to Egypt, you will see the content available on Netflix in Egypt. Should you go down under, then you will see the content on Netflix in Australia.
As a result, a Netflix account registered in the UK is no guarantee of the fact that you will always see the content available on Netflix in the UK.
What is the price of a Netflix subscription in the UK?
According to a recent study and a Netflix price comparison, the price of a Netflix subscription in the UK is quite similar to those of most other Western countries. In fact, it is cheaper than in many central European countries such as Germany, Italy, Spain, and France. But, compared to Southern-American countries such as Brazil and Argentina, it is quite expensive.
As you can see in the picture above, the prices are as follows:
Netflix Basic Package: 5,99GBP – 7,85USD
Netflix Standard Package: 8,99GBP – 11,79USD
Netflix Premium Package: 11,99GBP – 15,72USD
The USD prices are based on the conversion rates of March 9th in 2020.
The Basic package includes 1 screen, while the Standard package includes HD streaming and 2 screens. The Premium package includes 4 screens and UltraHD quality streaming.
If you live in a country in which Netflix is cheaper than in the UK, purchase a subscription in your home country and use a VPN to access UK Netflix content instead. That is often easier and using a VPN might be a necessary step no matter what.
I hope this short article will answer your question! Should you have anything more on your heart, write a comment!
Every year, the country of Norway gives a Christmas tree to the city of London as a thank you for their support during the Second World War. This is the most famous Christmas tree in England and every year it is placed on Trafalgar Square. A few years ago, someone compared it to a cucumber, but in 2019, things are getting worse!
Have you ever heard about Spelacchio? That was the name of the Christmas tree in Rome at Piazza Venezia after it looked absolutely terrible and almost without fur and branches a few years ago. This years Christmas tree at the Trafalgar square can for sure be compared to Spelacchio in Rome.
If you see it in the darkness with the lights turned on, it doesn’t look that bad. Just take a look.
But, if you take a look at the following tweet made during daytime, you will see that the quality of the tree might not be the best.
Some people wonder why the Norwegians have kept the best trees to themselves, why others wonder what the English people have done to make the Norwegians so angry?
Another person said he “thought the Norwegians left the trolls behind in Norway,” while someone suggested a “plastic surgery” for the tree in order to make it look nicer.
However, the general audience is just grateful for the tree. If you come to London, make sure to check out the Christmas tree at Trafalgar square and have a wonderful time!

Mamma Mia Party dates in London
The first evening is August 30th, and it is all supposed to finish on February 16th. But, as it is quickly getting sold out, I would not be surprised if they would keep the show running for a much longer time in the end.
The show is normally starting around 18.30 in the evening, but on weekends, they often run two shows a day, one starting at 12.00 and the other at 18.30.
