Does Netflix have Lord of the Rings movies?

Yes, the Lord of the Rings trilogy is available on Netflix, but only in Turkey. If you are anywhere outside Turkey like in Australia, you will not be able to watch movies on Netflix.

Sadly, fans in Australia will not be getting LOTR movies on Netflix anytime soon because another platform has streaming rights for the movies.

Luckily you can watch Lord of the Rings on Netflix in Australia with the help of a VPN.

With a VPN, you can connect to a server in Turkey and it will change your IP address to Turkey. This way you can unblock Turkish Netflix anywhere and watch the LOTR trilogy online.

Using a VPN, you can watch tons of movies and shows that are blocked on Netflix like A Quiet Place, watch all episodes of Two and a Half Men, and all seasons of Park and Recreation on Netflix.

What to do if you cannot find the movies on Netflix with a VPN?

If you are using a VPN, and still cannot find the movie on Netflix, chances are your VPN is not working, or something is preventing you from changing your Netflix region. 

Don’t panic, as there are a lot of things you can try to fix the issue, such as:

  • Change the VPN server. Change the server location you are connected to, to get a new IP address in case Netflix has detected your old IP.
  • Clear cookies and browser cache. If you are watching Netflix via a web browser, make sure to clear cookies and cache as they store information regarding your location.
  • Make sure there are no IP address leaks. Check for potential IP leaks, as Netflix has an IP detection mechanism to check users’ location.
  • Contact your VPN customer support. Contact the customer support team of the VPN and ask them for the servers that are working with Netflix.
