I will visit England and London in March 2019. I am frequently using Netflix, and I wonder if I can use my Netflix subscription while in England?
Yes, you can use your Netflix subscription while visiting London. In other words, in between your visits to the British Museum, the Big Ben, and London Eye, you can easily watch Netflix. You should be aware of the fact that you will find different programs and content as you visit England, after all, the Netflix catalog is different in every nation of the earth. As a result, you will find stuff on Netflix in England that you cannot find in your home country (this is good), but you will also discover that some of your favorite content from home cannot be found on Netflix in England.
If you want to know more about what’s coming to Netflix in England I recommend checking out this site sharing news about everything that’s new on Netflix in England.
One of the hottest shows currently available on Netflix in England is Suits season 8. It cannot be streamed in any other Netflix region, only on Netflix in the UK, so if you haven’t caught up with this season yet, make sure to stream it on Netflix while in England. Maybe you will miss Meghan Markle as you stream the eight season of Suits, but if you are lucky, maybe you can catch sight of her as you walk by Buckingham Palace in London instead?
If you come from within the European Union
If you have a Netflix subscription in a country within the European Union, the things described here will not work. How come? It is a new regulation that you bring with you your “home-region” whenever you visit another EU country. That is a bit complicated, but there are ways to fix this as well (if you really want to get access to English Netflix). If you want to do so, you can, for example, follow the instructions in this video or in this article!
One little advice from us is to not only visit the Netflix website while in England, but check out the BBC and the ITV website as well. Since these websites are blocked if you live outside England, you will suddenly be able to enjoy all the contents of these sites while in England. And at the BBC website you can, for example, stream The ABC Murders (a brand new Poirot series starring John Malkovich), you can stream the fantastic BBC series named Bodyguard (for which Richarcd Madden received a Golden Globe award), and if you are ready for some laugther you should stream all five seasons of Cuckoo at the BBC website.
At the ITV website, you can stream Britain’s Got Talent and other great and original ITV content.
In other words – You can use your existing Netflix subscription
For a long time, we thought that you needed a new Netflix subscription as you visited another country. Another popular service in England is Amazon Prime. If you have a subscription to their services in England and travel abroad, you will no longer be able to enjoy the benefits of your Prime membership in England anymore, even if you visit the United States (in which they also sell Amazon Prime subscriptions). Luckily Netflix doesn’t operate in that way, meaning that you can bring your Netflix subscription along as you visit London, with the only difference that you will see the local British catalog instead of your home catalog.
Do not forget to be a London tourist and not just a streamer
We hope you will enjoy your stay in London, and do not spend too much time in the room watching Netflix. You can do so when you go back home as well. Spend as much time as possible outside discovering London and eating some local food!
