Does Surfshark work with Netflix?

First, it’s important to know what Surfshark and Netflix are.

Surfshark and Netflix Services

Surfshark is a popular VPN service that provides an anonymous connection to the Internet.  It also offers ad and malware blocking capabilities among other awesome features.

Netflix probably doesn’t need an explanation due to its popularity.  Netflix is a streaming service that offers a wide variety of award-winning TV shows, movies, anime, documentaries, and more.

Netflix has also now gotten into the production area and they are creating their own movies and TV shows.

Netflix has risen to one of the most popular streaming services in the world today.

Netflix Geo-Blocking

Unfortunately, like many streaming services, Netflix employs geo-blocking technology which restricts access to content based on your location.

Netflix is available in over 190 different countries yet each country’s library is different.  Those who reside in the United Kingdom may want access to the United States Netflix catalog and vice versa.

Many cord cutters have turned to VPNs (virtual private networks) to get around geo-blocking.  A VPN will allow a person to connect to a server in a different country, making she/he appear as if they are located there.

Netflix has gotten extremely good at blocking popular VPNs from doing this and when we come across a one that still works, it’s worth celebrating!

Does Surfshark Work with Netflix?

When I wrote my unbiased review of Surfshark VPN I did some testing to see if it was compatible with Netflix.

Usually, when I do this type of testing, I’m disappointed because it either doesn’t work at all or it’s hit and miss.

I’m happy to report as of this article, yes, Surfshark does work with Netflix.

See my video below where I demonstrate this on a Fire TV Stick 4K Max.

  1. I recently took out a subscription to IP vanish on your recommendation and that the excellent price which was offered, unfortunately my needles for a VPN which would allow me to watch British TV players i.e. BBC iPlayer and the ITV one while I was on holiday in Spain, unfortunately it wasn’t working at all and I had to cancel my subscription, any comments?

  2. Netflix has a few catalogs for countries. I tried surfshark couldn’t get HD. Being from west coast. When using a vpn example NordVPN just click on country and if that server having problems disconnect and click on country again. That is how you can change servers when using a Nvidia Shield. On comp or cell phone much easier to get to different servers.

  3. Again, thanks for info on Surfshark. Up to a few weeks ago, Netflix and Amazon were still blocking Surfshark but I just checked and as of this writing this is no longer true nfor the time being at least. I wonder how long its discounting will continue to be awesome.

    Had Vpvanish for 3 years thier price became to high and hardly ever turned it on except for using cinema loaded surfshark last night and at first though I had made a mistake the buffering was excessive. After a few minutes things cleared up and watch 2 movies without any buffering. With prime I could never use the vpn and now no problem. I can now leave it on using everything.

  5. Surf shark does not work with Amazon Prime service. I had the same issue with Surf shark. Got the Geo blocking issue, mine going to Switzerland. They said that they were fixing it. Went to another VPN to fix the problem.

    1. I would suggest checking again. Working fine on my end. They have made a lot of improvements in a short amount of time.

      1. Regret just signed up for shark ? and no luck on my firestick to connect to BBC iPlayer or itvhub. Only reason I wanted it.

          Hi Nigel, does Surfshark claim their service works with BBC iPlayer or itvhub? I know that’s not mentioned in any of our articles.

          I would contact their support team if they are claiming it works with those services.
