How to sign up for Netflix account without US credit card
There are few ways to join Netflix without being a resident of the United States. Of course, if you are U.S. ex-pats living abroad, this is even easier.
In today’s article, I’m going to talk about one of the methods which I can personally vouch for because I signed up for Netflix, so it’s proven and I can confirm that this method works.
Don’t worry, signing up for Netflix without US credit card is actually a pretty simple task. Just follow the instructions given below and you’ll be good to go in no time.
But let’s count all the options:
- You’re U.S. resident traveling abroad and you have US credit card ,
- You have an European based Visa credit card or EntroPay virtual credit card .
Sign up using US credit card while abroad
In the first case, you are practically ready to roll. Just connect to the VPN (what is the VPN? ) and then sign up for Netflix using your personal credit card. Yes, you will need a VPN account in order to trick Netflix into thinking that you’re registering from within the US. More on this later, read on.
Sign up a Netflix account without a US credit card
This is a two step process:
- Fake your real location,
- Work around the Zip code check
Fake your real location
Once again, you will need a VPN account to fake your real location. I prefer HideMyAss VPN (read my review here ) as they are
giving me the best streaming results and the setup is far less complicated in comparison to other providers. Sign up, and you will receive an email shortly, instructing you how to set up you VPN connection. It’s pretty straightforward. All you need to do is install one small app for either Mac or Windows. Sorry Linux users, Netflix doesn’t support Linux yet
Other streaming devices are also supported trough the VPN enabled router. Boxee Box, Apple TV. Roku, iPad, Android … just to name a few.
Work around the Zip code check
It sounds complicated, right? No, actually, it’s pretty easy. Just make sure that the zip code you input has 5 digits – you can make up anything you like (Netflix will not validate the code) or enter any valid US Zip code. I found this list of US Zip codes for you.
This entire article can be summarized in one sentence: Go grab a VPN account from HideMyAss, connect to a server in the US, and finally register with Netflix inputting a 5 digit zip code along with your personal data .
Sound too simple to be true. Yeah that’s how we roll using the VPN
