Can I use my existing Netflix subscription in England?

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.

Can I watch Netflix in the UK?
Can I use my Netflix subscription 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!

Is it hard to find free Wi-Fi in London?

I am a bit worried. I will go to London before Christmas and need to work from my laptop during my stay. Is it hard to find free Wi-Fi in London?

Traveling to London for work and leisure at the same time is more and more common. In fact not only people doing business travel is in need of Wi-Fi / Internet access, but it is just as important for normal travelers in these days. After all, what are you supposed to do with all those images saved to your phone? You are for sure supposed to upload them to Instagram and Facebook and maybe send them to your family at home using WhatsApp. It can however be a very expensive activity to send high resolution images like that using a 3G or 4G connection. For that reason you need to use a Wi-Fi connection, making sure that you will not be charged for the data you use. So, how can that be done? Is it hard to find free Wi-Fi in London?


How hard is it to find free Wi-Fi in London?

It is just as hard to find a free Wi-Fi in London as it is to see red buses. Is that hard? No, not at all! It is very easy to find free Wi-Fi in London, but you should be aware of the fact that free Wi-Fi often comes at a cost. What do I mean?

If you decide to grab a cup of coffee in Starbucks while in London you will be offered free Wi-Fi. But, to be able to enjoy the free Wi-Fi you will have to buy your coffee first, and that ain’t free. If you visit a restaurant you will need to order first and then you can use the free Wi-Fi. So, it comes for free, but you will often have to purchase something first in order to use the free Wi-Fi available at the place.

The same is true with hotels!

Most hotels come with free Wi-Fi available for their visitors. A general advise is to check out this as you book your hotel. Read through the hotel policy when it comes to Wi-Fi, and check out whether it is free or if you have to pay extra for this. Often hotels will charge you a lot for Wi-Fi (if it isn’t included), so make sure to check it out before you book your room.

Now you might just want to enter into a hotel to use their Wi-Fi, but normally it doesn’t work that way. The Wi-Fi code to the hotel network is normally written down inside the hotel rooms themselves, meaning that they do not have open and free networks, but password protected and encrypted networks. If you ever meet a hotel with free open Wi-Fi you should however be careful actually using that, because such connection are easy to interrupt and people with bad intention can take use of your confidential data. If you hotel is using an open Wi-Fi network without password protection, we suggest that you use a VPN to remain safe! You can read more about VPN connections and services here.

Some hotels with free Wi-Fi in London

Would you like to get the names on some of the hotels with free Wi-Fi in London? Look no further.

  • The Levin – a four star hotel, not as luxurious as the two mentioned hotels, but still a perfect solution if you need a free Internet connection in your hotel room while in London.

How to get a UK IP address?

I moved from England quite long time ago, but I am in need of a UK IP address to see some television shows, and also for some other stuff. Can you tell me how I can get hold of a UK IP address?

Thank you for the question! There are quite some ways in which you can get hold of a UK IP address. There are proxy servers around which can help you in the matter, and with some small adjustments in your web browser this can be done. This solution is though unstable and not at all that good. A very good solution is a service provided from HideMyAss. This is a serious company with lots of people already subscribing to their services and their product looks as follows.

UK IP address with HideMyAss

First you visit their website and you subscribe to their service for one month (for example). After subscribing, paying (about 11 USD) and creating your username and password you will get an email with information about where you can download their program. The program is downloaded within seconds and then you simply open the program and add your username and password to it. Then you will find a long list of servers all around the world to choose between, and lots of the servers are located in the UK. Choose one of these servers and connect. In 10-15 seconds you will be connected to the server and as of then you will surf the web with a UK IP address, making activities on the net available to you wherever you are in the world, which earlier was only possible for people in the UK. On some occasions you will need to restart your web browser, but after that this will work perfect!

What does this service actually do? HideMyAss has servers all around the world, and as you start the program and connect to one of the servers a so called VPN is created. A VPN is a Virtual Private Network which is a technology for using the Internet or another intermediate network to connect computers to isolated remote computer networks that would otherwise be inaccessible. A VPN provides varying levels of security so that traffic sent through the VPN connection stays isolated from other computers on the intermediate network, either through the use of a dedicated connection from one “end” of the VPN to the other, or through encryption. (source: Wikipedia).

Thus with such a connection your surfing on the net will be encrypted and safe, so no people around you can get hold of your data or information.

We have tried HideMyAss ourselves and it worked perfect, so we can warmly recommend it to others. With the program you can also get IP addresses in all the other nations with such servers, so you will not only be able to get a UK IP address, but also Norwegian, Hungarian, Italian, Spanish and lots of other IP addresses.

PS: if you are not satisfied with the service you have a 30 day pay-back guarantee!
