Netflix in Kosovo is not something you would hear every day. The service is the world’s leading Internet television network with over 69 million members in over 60 countries enjoying more than 100 million hours of TV shows and movies per day, including original series, documentaries and feature films. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on nearly any Internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, all without commercials or commitments.
Yet the service is not available in the most countries of the Balkans, including Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia, and others. But there are some workarounds:
Step 1 – Mask Your Location (not working anymore)
In the past, in order to have access to Netfli, you had to have a VPN to mask your location, but now it’s not neccesary anymore and pracitally Netflix doesn’t actually allow it.
A virtual private network (VPN) enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks, which means that users can bypass internet restrictions and unblock all websites. You can evade firewalls to watch Youtube, unblock Facebook or circumvent VOIP limitations when calling family and friends.
Betternet VPN was a recommendation as an integrated solution with Chrome through a nice plugin that is very easy to enable and disable and works seamlessly. Getflix is another one that allows users from Australia, New Zealand and all over the world to easily access global video and music streaming services. Getflix uses Smart DNS and VPN technology to bypass the geo-blocking and open up this amazing world of entertainment. It has a smart pricing system and costs only $4.95 per month and it’s also one of the best services in which Netflix actually works.
It also has dedicated apps that work perfectly with both iTunes and Android. No ads show-up, no limitations and completely anonymous. And the service aims to have over 5,000,000 users in 2016. This way if you are based in Prishtina, Skopje or Tirana, you can mask your location as you were in the United States.

Step2 – Register your account
When you input your email and password, you get another screen for payment. There you can pay with your Credit Card from Kosovo or any country in the region, or move to pay with PayPal directly. The cards are accepted and once this step is complete you get access to Netflix.
You can register for an account here: netflix.com/signup, while the top pricing plan gives you streaming quality of up to 4K and access to 5 users across multiple devices.
Step3 – Enjoy the content
Now that your account has been approved and you have access to the platform you can enjoy the content and stream it on any device you like, including iPhone, iPad or Web.
It can work with a SmartTV as well, but you have to make sure that it’s a VPN network. There are ways to make your Wi-Fi work together with a VPN, but we’ll share more details about this in the upcoming days. In the meantime enjoy great content and TV Shows like House of Cards in 3 easy steps, and ditch your cable TV.

Additionally, the same steps that are highlighted here can be applied on accessing Netflix in other countries. This means Netflix in Macedonia, Netflix in Albania, Netflix in Serbia, Netflix in Montenegro, and much more.
If you don’t have a Smart TV you can benefit from using an Amazon Fire TV Stick and installing Netflix directly on it. It’s really cheap and very user-friendly.
