You know what they say? If it sounds to good to be true then it must be?

Well this is not one of those times.  You can cut your Netflix bill in half. Its easy!

Let me show you a really quick way to reduce your Netflix subscription by around 50% if you are a EU, UK or USA subscriber (your mileage may vary if you live elsewhere).

Firstly, you need to understand that Netflix is truly global. It has different sites around the world and you can be a member of any of them. Your membership follows you wherever you go, the content however might change. What I’m saying is that a USA member in the UK will see UK content and vice versa.

So, now thats cleared up lets get our subscription price down.

How to cut your Netflix bill in half using a VPN

Firstly, you need a VPN for this. Any VPN will work as for this, we don’t necessarily want to watch anything, we just want the cheapest subscription rate. If you actually want to watch Netflix USA after following this guide for example, then I recommend only the following two providers.

Once you have signed up to one of your favourite VPN providers then switch your country to Turkey or Columbia. It doesn’t matter which. Both of these countries offer low subscriptions relative to the rest of the world.

Link to Netflix Turkey –>https://www.netflix.com/tr-en/

Link to Netflix Columbia –> https://www.netflix.com/co-en/

As of today, in each of the above countries the prices look like this for the Basic, Standard and Premium plans

Netflix Turkey and Columbia VS UK Price

Basic Standard Premium Local / UK Price
15,99 TRY 27,99 TRY 39,99 TRY Turkish Price
£2.82 £4.94 £7.05 UK Price
16,900 COP 22,900 COP 28,900 COP Columbian Price
£4.31 £5.84 £7.37 UK Price

You can see I have bolded the cheapest price for each plan as at 26th April 2018 but they are very close at the premium level. The current UK prices are £5.99, £7.99 and £9.99 so the savings are huge at basic level at a whopping 53% with savings at the premium level being around 30%.

One you are connected to Netflix using your VPN, create a new account in the usual way, sign up and then pay. Netflix takes a wide variety of cards.

Once you have signed up, you can disconnect from your VPN and go to your regular Netflix site. So for example netflix.com in the USA and netflix.co.uk in the UK. Sign in with your new account details.

Thats really it. You should bear in mind that you may be charged a foreign transaction fee, however this is low especially for UK banks. I pay about 16p.
