NordVPN Not Working with Netflix? Probable Reasons

NordVPN is hands down one of the best VPNs to stream on Netflix. However, due to excessive pressure from content owners to restrict the content to the audience of assigned areas, Netflix has started hunting down some VPN provider’s servers and blocking their IP addresses.

In easy words, if maximum devices connect to a single server then Netflix receives the same IP address and bans the IP address/servers.

Therefore, some NordVPN servers might be ineffective and fail to unblock Netflix.

  1. Try different NordVPN server by changing cities.
