In this blog post I want to find out if Express VPN works with Netflix? Can I access geo restricted content? On the website of Express VPN you can see a tutorial of how to access Netflix.
But does it really work?? Lets find out! I have made this YouTube video:
No! As you can see it does not work. At least not for me. I recommend that you sign up for NordVPN. Use this coupon to save 50%:
Express VPN claims that it possible to be working with Netflix. I have followed their advice in this video but as you can see I can’t get access to Netflix. And I receive the error code: Error M7111–5059.
As I wrote above the best solution to solve this error is to use NordVPN.
History of the Netflix Proxy Error
Back in 2016 Netflix did start to crack down on the use of VPN and proxy services to bypass their geo filter. Since then several VPN provider are not able to provide a solution to access Netflix. There are several websites that recommend to use ExpressVPN but this is just simple false information. This is how the error looks like:
This is the message you receive: Whoops, something went wrong… Streaming Error. You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy. Please turn off any of these services and try again. For more help, visit netflix.com/proxy/ or you just visit this page 😉
As I said above go and get NordVPN that will work. Keep in mind that they are the VPN provider with the most servers. So if a server is getting blocked you will get a fresh new one fairly quickly.
