Can you watch Netflix in Spain?

The good news is yes! But due to broadcasting laws, Netflix isn’t allowed to broadcast all of it’s US shows to viewers in Espana. Read on below to learn how you can quickly unblock the restriction and watch your favorite Netflix programs in Madrid, Barcelona, or anywhere in Spain.

If you’re an American planning a vacation to Spain, or an expat abroad – here’s how you can watch the US catalog of Netflix.

If you don’t have a Netflix account, before creating an account, sign-up for a VPN service. This is required because of Netflix geo block customers abroad from their US catalog. It’s essential that you have a US IP address, so Netflix recognizes you’re eligible to watch their US video catalog.

Best VPN for Netflix US in Spain

Our recommended VPN for watching Netflix in Spain is Express VPN.


  • In our testing, they provide the fastest connection speeds, which is the most important feature when evaluating a VPN provider for watching video (who wants the season finale show buffering with 1 minute left)
  • Express VPN also provide the most consistent network availability. In other words, there are some VPN providers ‘almost’ as fast as Express VPN, but their network has more outages or slows down because of too many client connections.
  • More data center locations across the United States than other top-rated VPN services, providing the best ‘user experience’ for their customers.

We highly recommend Express VPN and PureVPN as our preferred VPN suppliers. Other VPN providers have been known to get their IP addresses blocked by Netflix, making them unable to stream shows.
