Earlier last week, movie streaming site Netflix announced with a bang that they have made their service available to users worldwide, including folks in Singapore. At only S$10.98 per month, Singaporeans can access Netflix’s extensive movie catalogue, which was previously only available in United States.
While the news were well received by Singaporeans because they can finally Netflix and chill, not all of the movies on Netflix are available to Singaporeans. Here’s a table of comparison done by Tech In Asia to illustrate that:
While most of Netflix’s original productions such as Daredevil and Jessica Jones are accessible in Singapore, a lot of blockbusters are unavailable yet.
For those who are more Internet savvy, you would know that installing a simple VPN (virtual private network) can give you instant access to these movies which are only available in the States. There are VPNs that essentially “turns your connection into a US connection”, allowing you to be connected to Netflix as a US connection, and one such VPN is Singapore made GOM VPN.
How To Get The VPN To Unlock US Netflix Content
Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Install Gom VPN.
a. In Chrome web store, type “Gom”. It’s your first result in Extensions
b. Add Gom extension to Chrome
c. Click Sign-in and follow the instruction to register your email
Step 2: Sign-in to your Singapore Netflix account
Notice the lack of shows like Breaking Bad, House of Cards
Step 3: Turn Gom on
By clicking the flying woman icon on the right of your address bar
Step 4: Refresh Netflix
There you go, and now you can access all the titles which were previously only available to users in the States.
Gom has a trial period of one month, but there’s a limited coupon code from Gom to you our readers, to extend the trial period to 90 days. Just go to Gom for Netflix and key in your email you use for Gom.
Worried about legitimacy? Gom is currently installed by over 180,000 users, according to the Chrome web store, so that should take away some of your worries.
