How to Get American Netflix on PS4 or PS5 in Canada (Easy Steps)

Setting up a VPN or Virtual Private Network on your PS4 or PS5 is a bit complicated as it does not support VPN app like other devices such as Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, and Firestick.

However once you set up a VPN on your PlayStation, it is very simple to get American Netflix in Canada. Here are the three method that you can use to set up a VPN on your PS4 or PS5:

  • Set up Smart DNS via VPN
  • Set up a VPN on your Home Router
  • Get a Preconfigured Router

Method 1: Set Up a Smart DNS via VPN

  1. First, sign up for a VPN that works with Netflix. I highly recommend ExpressVPN as it offers a dedicated MediaStreamer (Smart DNS) and offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
  2. Now sign in to your VPN account on ExpressVPN official website.
  3. Head to DNS Settings and below “IP address registration”, click “Register my IP address”. If already says “Registered” next to your IP address, then there is no need to do it again.
  4. Now turn on “Automatically register my IP address”.
  5. Now go to the “ExpressVPN setup page for PlayStation” where you will find the MediaStreamer smart DNS. Note it down because you need it later.
  6. Launch your PS4 or PS5, go in to “Settings”, and select “Network”.
  7. Now select “Set Up Internet Connection” and select “Use Wi-Fi” or “Use a Lan” depends on how your PlayStation is connected with the internet.
  8. Now select “Custom” > select your Wi-Fi connection and enter a password.
  9. Select “IP Address Settings” and then choose “Automatic”.
  10. It will ask you for “DCHP Host Name”, select “Do Not Specify”.
  11. Now for “DNS Settings”, choose “Manual” > select “Primary DNS” and enter the IP address that you noted down before.
  12. Now select “Next” without entering the Secondary DNS.
  13. For “MTU Settings” and then select “Automatic”.
  14. For “Proxy Server”, choose the “Do Not Use” option.
  15. Now for updating internet settings, select “Test Internet Connection”.
  16. Now restart your PlayStation. After that, your Smart DNS will change.
  17. Go to the Netflix app and start streaming all the US Netflix titles in Canada.

Method 2: Set Up VPN on Your Home Router

  1. Open the browser on your laptop/PC and enter “192.168.1.1” in the URL. It will open the router dashboard.
  2. Now click “Sevices” and then select “VPN” to open it.
  3. Now check the “Enable” box next to “Start Open Client”.
  4. Contact your VPN provider support and add the relevant settings (I highly recommend ExpressVPN because of its competent 24/7 live chat support).
  5. Now connect your PS4 or PS5 with your home router.
  6. Open the Netflix app and start streaming US Netflix on PlayStation in Canada.

Method 3: Get a Preconfigured Router

To avoid the hassle, you can also purchase a preconfigured routers if you do not have much time to follow the mentioned above steps. Few providers offer preconfigured Tomato VPN and DD-WRT routers, including ExpressVPN, Surfshark, and PureVPN.

In this way, you don’t need to set up a VPN separately on PlayStation and can access directly by connecting to the US server to watch US Netflix in Canada.
