Cheers! Because I’m about to address one of your burning questions: Now that I have my 2Gbps Fiber Broadband Bundle, how do I sign up for Netflix?! Isn’t it geographically blocked in Singapore?!
Of course, we wouldn’t want you to take the illegal route! So here’s where Freedom VPN comes in. :D
For those unfamiliar with Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), the technical aspects can be quite confusing. You need to learn how to configure and turn them on when you want to use them.
BUT, with ViewQwest’s Freedom VPN, technical knowledge is optional! :D
After you subscribe for your ViewQwest 2Gbps Fiber Broadband Bundle, ViewQwest will arrange for a technical specialist to swing by and complete your home set up on your behalf.
During the session, Freedom VPN will be automatically turned on, providing you with access to websites like Netflix! This elevates your blockbuster-viewing experience at home! Easy and convenient, to the
But before you open your bag of chips and try to watch your first movie on Netflix, one other issue – how EXACTLY do you bypass the other geo-restricted roadblocks during sign up?
Here’s how you can legally register for a Netflix account in two easy steps:
Step 1: Getting Your Netflix account!
Upon clicking ‘Start Your Free Month’, you will be asked to choose the desired package you want for your Netflix subscription – ‘Basic’, ‘Standard’ or ‘Premium’.
As you would probably know by now haha, I live most of my life on my smartphone, be it for work or play! My family members, however, have a preference for the TV.
So personally, I would go for the Premium Package, because it allows my entire family to watch different Netflix programmes on multiple screens at the same time! This includes your PS3, Wii, Xbox, PC, Mac, tablets and smartphones!
You wanna watch T-Rex and the raptors, but at the same time, your brother wants to watch Kevin Spacey’s political exploits on Netflix, or perhaps Rick kicking zombie’s butt. So what do you do?! *picks up boxing gloves*
No need to fight hahaha. He can stream The Walking Dead on the TV in the living room and watch all five seasons at one shot if he wants, until he ends up like one of the walkers… kidding hahaha.
You, on the other hand, can be left to your own devices, literally. ;) So just grab your tablet and you can catch Jurassic Park before you hit the theatres for Jurassic World!
After selecting the package of your choice, key in your desired log in details and there you have it! A Netflix account!
So yeah, almost all of us make it to this point. And then we get stuck. Why?! Because we need to set up a payment method and Netflix only accepts US credit cards. But no fret, ;)
Step 2: Option 1 – Using an international Credit Card!
This would probably be the easiest way! You can use an international credit card to sign up. No third party payment platforms required.
But yes, not everyone has an international credit card, like me for example, so here’s a second option.
Step 2: Option 2 – Create a US Paypal account with your local credit card details!
Upon clicking “Sign up for PayPal” on netflix.com, the website will automatically redirect you to the PayPal site, with US as the default country setting.
I guess we’re all pretty familiar with PayPal, since almost everyone shops online these days!
But if you’re unfamiliar, PayPal is a globally established and safe platform for online payments. :) So rest assured that your card details are 100% safe with them! Fill in the details accordingly, and you can proceed to link up your new PayPal US account with your Netflix account!
You can also get yourself a virtual address on www.vpost.com.sg, so you can key in your ‘US Address’. Sign up for that at vPost, it’s free of charge! Your addresses can be found in your activation email!
Netflix guarantees a free one-month trial, so no payment required for the first month of course! You are free to cancel any time without additional charges too! But then again, why would you wanna do that haha?!
But if you really really do, just click on “Your account” and you’ll be guided through the process.
Hope this quick write-up helps! If you have additional questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll try my best to help!
Now that I’m done with this guide, it’s back to Jurassic Park 3!!
AND I’M SO EXCITED for Jurassic World! It looks so Universal Studios Singapore, BUT WITH DINOSAURS! Heard the graphics are awesome too – as a film production major, I always look out for that. XD
So yup! Quickly sign up and you can catch these dinos past and present!!
PS: Try this new Jurassic World mobile game!! It’s pretty fun and super addictive!
