Spotify, Hulu , US based Netflix Jamaica?
Get Spotify, Hulu, and US based Netflix from Jamaica.
Getting access to Spotify, Netflix US , Hulu and other US based platforms can be achieved from Jamaica using several different methods. However, the most basic method comes from theses three letters “VPN”.
A virtual private network also known as a VPN is a private network that extends across a public network or internet. It enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. In short, it allows your device to seem as if it is in the US by connecting to a network that is actually in the US.
Home Method (using a VPN router)
Now that you know what a VPN is, how do you take advantage of it? The method that works best for me is to get a wireless router that can be configured to connect to various VPN networks (Home Method). Most devices are capable of connecting to VPN networks individually, you can scroll through those extra settings of your various devices to find out if yours is capable of connecting to a VPN network, if you found VPN in your setting, just skip to the “Good Stuff” heading below. Devices here includes Mobile Phones, Computers, Smart TV, Xbox, Playstation…etc, pretty much any device that can access the internet.
My preferred method does not involve the tedious processes of configuring your devices individually to access VPN networks, instead it involves configuring just your router. Ultimately any device connected to that router will have access to the VPN network.
There are various VPN capable routers out there, however, I find that the one below is most suitable and economical.
After you’ve purchased a capable router(such as the one above), you’ll then need to configure it to connect to a VPN network. There are tons of online companies and individuals offering VPN services. Choose a suitable package from any one of those companies(I’ll provide a list of the most reputable companies) and you are good to go. The company usually provide instructions on how to connect to their network with whatever device you are using(In a next post I will show how my router is configured).
