In January 2016, Netflix launched its services globally bringing its TV services in 130 countries. Myanmar is one of them and you can enjoy the US company streaming services from Myanmar since then.
This is obviously great news but:
- To subscribe to Netflix, you would need an international credit card which is still an issue for lot of Myanmar people
- Due to complex distribution rights, there is a significant inequality between countries. According to the unofficial online Global Search (uNoGS), you can enjoy more than 5,300 different contents in Netflix US, the Myanmar version is limited to 1,572 contents only.
- A reliable and powerful broadband connection is needed to stream Netflix. Please find below the minimum requirements according to the help center.
If you want to give it a try, Netflix is available on your favorite devices: smart TVs, streaming players, game consoles, set-top Boxes, smartphones & tablets
If you are using Android, you can directly download Netflix application (apk) from the Play Store.
If you are interested to get access to much more content on Netflix, you can simply use a VPN and subscribe to Netflix from the US.
Here are two good freemium VPNs:
TunnelBear is a VPN service from Canada. The free version will give you 500MB per day which should allow you to watch 1H of Netflix per day in SD.
Windscribe is also from Canada and gives you a free allowance of 10GB per month: 20 hours of video streaming in SD.
