One of the biggest gripes that users have with Netflix is that there are many movies and TV shows that are not available for instant streaming. If you use a VPN, you can watch Naruto Shippuden on Netflix or any other unavailable shows. VPN means Virtual Private Network which encrypts your connection to the Internet through another server. A VPN is similar to how it sounds; it creates a virtual “private network” on the internet for your computer. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will only see you are connecting to the remote network’s IP address, not what specific servers you are using or what you are doing online. This allows you to connect to any country’s version of Netflix no matter where you are located in the world.

This allows you to speak out loud and watch Netflix shows or movie titles instantly appear in the search bar. The only catch is that this feature must be supported by certain devices and will not work with all remotes.
