Why do you need a VPN to watch Pretty Little Liars on Netflix in New Zealand

Just a few months back, Pretty Little Liars was available on Netflix NZ, but the show got removed from all Netflix libraries except Canada and the UK.

The reason why Pretty Little Liars is not available on Netflix in the country is content licensing rights. Netflix only has the right to show Pretty Little Liars on Netflix in Canada and the UK.

In New Zealand, some other streaming service has the rights for Pretty Little Liars, and it won’t be coming back on Netflix NZ any time soon. When I searched for the series on Netflix NZ, it only showed similar titles as the show is missing from the library.

Netflix is geo-restricted so you can only access the library of your country. This prevents viewers from enjoying the show on Netflix from anywhere in the world. Luckily, you can bypass these geo-restrictions and watch all 7 seasons of Pretty Little Liars on Netflix from New Zealand using a VPN.

What to do if you cannot watch the show on Netflix with a VPN? Try this…

If you are using a VPN, and still cannot watch the show on Netflix from your location, it could be that the VPN is not working properly. Here are a few things you can try to fix the problem:

  • Change the VPN server. Connect to a different server location to get a fresh IP address, in case Netflix has detected your old IP.
  • Clear browser cookies and cache. If you are watching Netflix via a web browser, clear cookies and cache from Settings as they store information regarding your location.
  • Check if your IP address is leaking. Make sure the VPN is not leaking your true IP address, as Netflix has an IP detection mechanism to check users’ location.
  • Contact your VPN customer support. Contact the support team of the VPN and ask them for the servers that are working with the regional library that you are trying to unblock.
