No, Dexter is not available on Netflix, but you can watch all seasons on Showtime. Unfortunately, Dexter is not available to watch on Netflix anymore because of streaming rights.

Why do you need a VPN to watch Dexter on Showtime from anywhere?

Dexter is not available to watch on Netflix anymore. Currently, it is exclusively streaming on Showtime – an American streaming service that is restricted to the US only which is why you need a VPN to watch it abroad.

Due to licensing agreements and streaming rights, Showtime is only allowed to offer its content in the US and nowhere else. If you are outside the US and try to watch Dexter, you will be given an error message.

“Access to this resource is forbidden by access policy.”

A VPN will change your IP address, which then hides your real location and tricks Showtime into thinking you are in the US.

When you connect to a US server, you will be able to access Showtime and watch Dexter easily. In short, a VPN allows you to bypass geo-blocks and unblock streaming services and websites that are not available in your country.

This way, you can watch anything you want online from anywhere without any geo-barriers. You can unblock regional Netflix libraries, and much more.

What other shows can you watch with a VPN?

With a VPN, you can watch plenty of shows and movies on streaming platforms that are geo-restricted such as:

What to do if Showtime is not working with a VPN?

If you have already connected to a VPN, and still cannot access Showtime, Don’t panic, as there are a lot of things you can try to fix the issue, such as:

  • Connect to a different VPN server. Change the server location you are connected to, to get a new IP address.
  • Clear cookies and browser cache. If you are watching Dexter via 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 Showtime 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 US servers that are working with Showtime.
