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.
If you want to have a guarantee that you will be able to access the content on Netflix in the UK also outside the EU, use a VPN that works with 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.
