Like many people, I was initially excited when Netflix officially arrived in Thailand. Up to this point, if you wanted to watch Netflix, you needed to have an account in your home country and then turn on a VPN in order to watch the movies. This has now all changed as we can now open an account here in Thailand. However, the movie and TV catalogue in Thailand is very limited. According to this website, in Thailand we only have 4.57% of the movies in the United States. We have 94 TV shows and they have 1,157. We have 210 movies and they have 4,593. I know it is early days and they will most likely add more, but that is a big difference between the two. To be fair to Netflix, it is not all their fault. The rights for some TV shows and movies in Asia have already been taken by their competitors. Anyway, something that I didn’t realize at first is that if you log in with your Thailand account and then turn on your VPN, you will then see the complete catalogue in America. You can then watch 1,000’s of extra TV shows and movies. The only downside is that you need a good VPN service that isn’t too slow.
If you are already using a VPN with good results to watch Netflix US, please share with us in the comments which one you are using.
