Netflix finally launched in Spain, Portugal and Italy in October of 2015 and was a welcome addition for Spanish online streamers. Today I’m going to look at how you can get more movies on Netflix Spain and grow your available film catalogue by nearly 13x with 1 easy step.
Netflix has become the go-to provider for streaming legal movies and for Spain it is great news, however, although Netflix offers a wide selection of movies on their US site, the Spanish Netflix catalogue has left something to be desired.
Netflix has around 13,715 titles globally, but Spain have been seriously under resourced with a paltry catalogue of just 999 titles.
With the standard Netflix Spain account costing €9,99 per month, it seems a little expensive for such a limited catalogue.
The great news is you can expand your Netflix Spain account and access the 13,715 global titles from the US, Canada, UK and also from other Spanish speaking countries such as Mexico, Colombia and Argentina. Read on and I’ll let you know how.
How To Get More Movies On Netflix Spain
The great news is with your Netflix Spain account you can log in to any Netflix site worldwide and access their movie selection without paying any difference in price.
When you head over to the Netflix site it automatically checks your internet connection to see what location you’re in and then serves you up the local version of the site.
A simple tool called a Virtual Private Network or VPN allows you to mask your location and make it appear as if you’re in a different country.
When using a VPN and accessing Netflix you can essentially select any Netflix site you want to access and watch movies from their catalogue with your same Netflix Spain account.
How do I get a VPN for Netflix Spain
VPN services are provided by many different companies and cost around €6 – €8 per month depending on the length of time you sign up for. Now this may seem like a big amount on top of your Netflix subscription but when you consider that you’ll have access to over 13x more content it really starts to make sense.
Streaming video from overseas is quite resource intensive and some VPN providers aren’t up to the job, especially ones who claim to be “free“. There are a lot of slow VPN providers out there and finding the good ones amongst the bad ones can be difficult because they’re all similarly priced.
I’ve been testing VPN services for a long time and regularly review services and for watching more movies on Netflix Spain have come to the conclusion the following three are the best options.
Follow the green link to the provider of your choice and sign up. If you can’t make up your mind then I recommend IPVanish.
How to get more movies with the VPN
Once you’ve signed up to a VPN provider download and install their software or app for your computer or device.
Now you have access to any Netflix site. All you have to do is connect to the country of the Netflix site you wish to access.
So let’s say for example you wanted to check out the US Netflix site. Simply click on the United States option of the VPN software or app, wait for it to connect and then visit Netflix.com.
Rather than seeing the Spanish site you’ll see the US site.
Log in like normal and you’ll have access to a massive catalogue of movies and series.
You can disconnect whenever you want and connect to other countries. A few to try would be Canada, UK, Mexico and Argentina, but you aren’t limited to just those countries.
Wherever Netflix is available you now have access to their service using your normal Netflix Spain login and password.
All you have to do now is sit back, Netflix, and if you’re lucky “chill”.
