How to unblock and watch USA Netflix on Chromecast through VPN

A virtual private network, better known as VPN, gives you the ability to alter your public IP address and subsequently unlock content that would usually be unavailable in your region. Thus, if you setup a VPN, you will be able to watch American Netflix via Chromecast outside USA because VPN does spoof your online location. VPN does much more than that.

It enables you to surf the web anonymously by hiding your IP address.
By encrypting your internet traffic, VPN protects you from hackers and spies.

VPN grants you access to geoblocked content and channels such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, Now TV
You can access channels of only one region at once. If you wish to watch geo-blocked content from another region
You need to re-configure your VPN IP.

VPN works without problems even if your ISP uses DNS hijacking or Transparent proxies.
You do need a VPN enabled router to make this work, as Chromecast does not natively support VPN.

If you want to try out a VPN service, make sure to choose a fast and reliable VPN provider.
You can find many great providers on this website. Personally i would use IronSocket/CactusVPN.

Watch U.S. Netflix on Chromecast via Smart DNS Proxies

Smart DNS also enables you to unblock restricted channels such as U.S. Netflix on your Chromecast. The main difference between Smart DNS and VPN is that the former only redirects parts of your connection and doesn’t slow down internet speed as opposed to the latter. Smart DNS main advantages are:

The ability to effortlessly switch between different regions thus bypassing multiple locations restrictions at once.
This means you do not have to set up your device again in order to change your Netflix region.

It maintains your internet speed which is crucial if you’re planning on streaming
Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, Now TV, and so on.

Your local IP address doesn’t change so you can still access all your local websites as usual.
Cactus/IronSocket have various videos and tutorials which will guide you through the whole Smart DNS installation.

Sometimes ISP implement dubious policies like Transparent proxies and DNS hijacking.
As a result, Smart DNS won’t work in such cases and you have to revert back to VPN.

So to get started pick a VPN package that offers both VPN & Smart DNS in 1 package.
