  1. Make sure that your Netflix subscription is up-to-date
  2. Install and set up the VPN of your choice
  3. Now use the VPN software to connect the computer to a VPN server located in the preferred country
  4. Now open Netflix in web browser and log in to your account

Now, Netflix will detect your location as per your VPN and will show you the library accordingly. Do note, that using a VPN to circumvent your actual location is a violation of Netflix’s Terms and Conditions. This might even result in the termination of your Netflix account.

To turn the VPN off and get access to the library in your own location, you will need to contact your VPN provider or the network administrator.
