Streaming Netflix using a VPN has stopped being one of the world’s favorite pastimes and turned into a long, tiresome process of searching for the right VPN service and the right server to allow you to access the content you want to watch. Even some of the most popular VPN providers are no longer offering this luxury to their users, as Netflix is becoming more and more successful at blocking VPN users and restricting the availability of its content. You may have heard rumors that IPVanish is no longer on the list of VPN services that work with Netflix. This post is dedicated to revealing whether there is any truth to these claims.

Sad But True
Unfortunately, we have to confirm that IPVanish can no longer be used for viewing Netflix content. It is really a shame since IPVanish is an excellent VPN provider known for amazing speeds, great performance, and of course, its zero logs policy that provides its users with complete anonymity. Netflix blacklisted all of its servers and IPVanish gave up on trying to unblock its content and focused on other aspects of its service. Luckily for IPVanish, many users have decided to give up on trying to stream Netflix using a VPN and turned to the next best thing – torrents. Due to the aforementioned qualities of IPVanish, this VPN service is still highly popular among users in spite of its decision to abandon any further attempts to unblock Netflix. It is a perfect choice for torrenting, so there is no doubt that it is going to remain as successful and popular as it was before Netflix’s crusade against VPN services.
Therefore, if you want to use IPVanish only for accessing US Netflix or the entertainment company’s content for any other country, we have to say that you should definitely look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you want to use torrents or stream other content anonymously and without any limits, IPVanish can be a great choice. We would also like to warn you that Netflix is investing an insane amount of both effort and money into detecting and blocking VPN users. Thus, it may be smart to wait out and hold off any investments into a subscription for another VPN service, as the situation changes daily and the VPN services and servers that may allow you to stream Netflix today may not be of much use tomorrow.
