We rarely come across a VPN service that is as impressive as ProtonVPN. Its list of strong points goes on forever, including decent speeds, unlimited bandwidth, strong AES-256 encryption, Tor support, P2P support, Perfect Forward Secrecy, improved privacy and security with Secure Core network and traffic routed through multiple secure servers, a built-in killswitch, custom connection profiles, DNS leak protection, and up to 10 simultaneous connections. It also offers an excellent free version with no bandwidth limitations. It is a VPN that has it all, except for a vast server network, but even with 500+servers in 40+ world countries, it is still one of the most magnificently crafted VPN services that we have encountered so far.
ProtonVPN was launched long after Netflix had declared its war against VPNs and Smart DNS services and made many VPN providers give up on further attempts to unblock this streaming service for its users. We were curious to find out whether ProtonVPN may give new hope to VPN users worldwide who are running out of ways to stream US Netflix via a VPN.
ProtonVPN Netflix Check
When we tested ProtonVPN, we were able to access and stream content on Netflix US from our location in Europe. Thanks to decent speeds on the US servers, we were able to run everything in full HD without any buffering issues. We also successfully geo-spoofed Netflix Germany and Japan, but the servers in Japan provided us with subpar performance. On the other hand, Netflix Canada, UK, and France served us with the dreaded proxy error. Apart from Netflix, ProtonVPN also granted us access to Hulu and Crunchyroll, which makes this VPN service an excellent geo-spoofing tool during these trying times for streamers around the world.
