Good evening. I have a problem with my iPhone. I have no idea what is wrong with it. I try to watch Netflix on it, but every time it only responds with a message saying “Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet. Enter your email & we’ll let you know when Netflix is available.” It is really weird because everything was good before I came to China yesterday. Anyway, hope you guys can help with it. I want to watch my favorite shows during my stay in China for about 3 months. Thanks a lot.
When you ask an American where to watch quality and wonderful TV shows on the Internet, many Americans may recommend Netflix as the best options for your consideration. This judgment is based on the fact that together with YouTube, Hulu, etc., Netflix has been classified one of the most well-known and excellent online streaming service providers in the world. Behind the website’s great success is its great movie and TV show content it provides for its millions of users distributing in many nations all around the world. Such countries as United States of America, Australia, Canada and many other countries in Europe have made a great contribution to the website’s success. But for some reasons, Netflix seems to be a little bit slow in competing for a share of the streaming market in China, a country has the biggest population in the world and is regarded as one of the most important economies on the globe. When you want to access the website in China on any devices including iPhone, a message stating something like“Sorry, Netflix is not available in your country yet. Enter your email & we’ll let you know when Netflix is available” will be the only page you can receive. Although YouTube and many other services like New York Times,Dailymotion, Time, Reuters, The Washington Post, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Vimeo, Flickr, Gmail, Google Search, Dropbox, Line, Blogger, Github, Twitter, Hulu, HBO, USA Network, ABC, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Deezer, WWE, Star Sports, Sky Italia, etc. are all inaccessible in China, it is a different case from Netflix. The inaccessibility of YouTube and the other services is the result of the fact that Chinese government has blocked all the potentially unfriendly websites or websites that are considered to be imposing potential threats on the stability and safety of the nation with the notorious Great Firewall of China. When you try to visit YouTube in China, an error message similarly as below will be responded.

The case of Netflix involves the technique called geo-blocking or geo-restriction. It is a way that many streaming service providers rely on to protect the premium content from being visited by certain user group, implementing discriminated prices, etc. However, both problems can be solved with only a VPN. In the following part, we will discuss how to watch Netflix in China on Iphone in detail.
If you are looking for a technique that can not only help you access any unavaible or blocked websites in China, but also a method to help you stay protected from being attacking by many possible threats or disturbed by online marketers, a quailty VPN service can be your best consideration. A VPN is the abbreviation of Virtual Private Network. It can work as a middleman between your device and the other services. Your original IP will be covered by a new one with the VPN service online. In this way, the websites will fail to decide where you are from and thus you will be allowed to access all the content on them. And at the same time, the GFW will fail to tell which service you are heading for,and thus you will succeed in managing to access the blocked websites. What is more, your privacy will be well protected while using a VPN to go online.
The detail guide to use a VPN consists of three steps.
Step 1: First, it is needed to go to sign up for an account from a VPN service provider. Usually there are various service plan available, pick up the one that you think it best for you. After that, you will be provided the options to make the payment. Choose the payment method and fill in all the information to complete. An email will be sent to you to confirm the account upon payment being completed. After confirming, the next step is to download and install the software onto your system.
Step 2: Download and install the VPN software. Usually, a link to download the software will be provided in the confirmation email. You may be presented with a list of software where software for different operating systems or devices are listed. Select the one for your systems to finish downloading. The installation is easy, just click through the procedures as prompted all the way to complete.
Step 3: Connect to a US-based server or other appropriate server location on VPN. When the software is ready, the left you need to do is to start the application and fill in your account detail and choose a proper location. You can select any server located in US. If you like, you can also choose other locations like Canada. It is all up to you. Now everything is done.
For users who are looking for reliable brands of VPN services, the following three can be listed among their best choices. Although none of these brands is good enough to be considered as perfect in all aspects, they are very competitive in many aspects compared with their competitors.

Headquartered in Panama, a country where people scream for freedom from NSA snooping, NordVPN is one of the most popular VPN services in the world. Even though its pricing is slightly expensive, it doesn’t prevent the company from being one of the most favored VPN service providers at all since it is a company that can ease the user’s safety concern to the most degree.
IPVanish includes a number of amazing and useful tools into its service.
