Why isn’t The Office US on UK Netflix?

The reason The Office US isn’t available on the UK Netflix library is pretty simple: Netflix doesn’t own the broadcasting rights for The Office US in the UK.

Netflix is a global service that has different libraries for different regions. The Office US isn’t (currently) available on the UK Netflix library – it is available on US Netflix, however.

Confusingly, your Netflix account travels with you around the world. When you’re at home, you’ll be served your native Netflix library, however, as soon as you access Netflix from another country’s internet, you’ll be served that country’s Netflix library.

The good news is that you can access the US Netflix library with your UK Netflix account. All you need is a good VPN that works with US Netflix (see below) – I recommend using ExpressVPN (£5.13/month) if you want the absolute best VPN performance or Ivacy (£1.76/month) if you’re looking for a cheaper VPN with reasonable performance.

How does Netflix know where I’m connecting from?

Every internet connection as its own IP address. IP addresses – a string of numbers – are a lot like physical addresses – they are used to locate where a user is connecting from (amongst other things).

As your ISP is assigned to you from your ISP, it’s easy for Netflix to work out where in the world you’re coming.

I’ve been using ExpressVPN (£5.13/month) to watch US Netflix since March last year.

How to watch The Office US on Netflix in the UK?

The best and easiest way to watch The Office US on Netflix in the UK is to use a VPN. VPN’s using a combination of military-grade encryption and a network of servers and IP addresses around the world to let users spoof their location.

This simple combination of encryption and multiple server locations is enough to let you virtually change your location to anywhere in the world.

If you want to watch The Office US on Netflix in the UK, all you need to do is turn your VPN on and connect to a server in the US. You’ll then be served the US Netflix library, and you’ll be able to watch The Office US via your UK Netflix account for free.

Be careful though; not all VPNs are capable of unblocking US Netflix (because they’ve shared their US IP addresses with too many users). Take a look at our Netflix detecting VPN article to find out more.
