Get Netflix cheaper - SEE OP FOR DETAILS

UPPDATED 24/1/21
if you do not have an irish subscription to netflix then sign up to an Irish sub. It can be any plan as you'll be asked for a choice of plan when you move. You must do a month of Irish sub first.

- enter the payment method you wish to use when you move to your chosen country ( turkey is the cheapest) bear in mind some banks block cards being used abroad unless they are notified in advance.
- enter a genuine mobile number on netflix for account recovery
- cancel subscription
- when your subscription has expired ie nothing plays then sign out of all devices and get a vpn that works for the country you want to use (vpn unlimited works for turkey). This could be a month away.
- check your ip is working using a site like https://whatismyipaddress.com/
- go incognito and search netflix and enter your details and click renew, choosing which package you want.
- turn off your vpn
welcome to cheap netflix. You do NOT need a VPN to watch it. The programme choice will be the same as a reg irish account. You do NOT need to know any Turkish.
IF you still see prices in USD etc when your VPN is on, then your VPN is the problem. Nord VPN seems to have issues. You may need to use a different VPN to sign up

Plans range from 17.99 TL to 41.99 TL a month



Quick and dirty FAQ here - anyone want to amend or add to it?

Quote:
Q: What’s this about cheap Netflix subscriptions?
A: Yes, if you purchase and/or setup renewal of Netflix in another country using the likes of a VPN, you’ll then pay for Netflix in that currency.

Q: What’s this VPN deal-i-o?
A: Essentially it’ll spoof your IP Address to appear that you’re in another country. There are many paid ones and free ones - including HolaVPN.

Q: OK.. I’m with you. I’m an existing Netflix subscriber in Ireland - what do I do?
A: You need to cancel your recurring subscription on the Netflix site, then wait it has lapsed, and then re-activate using a VPN.

Q: I haven’t subscribed to Netflix yet - what do I do?
A: How’s life been in that cave for the past 10 years? You could subscribe with your VPN open, or subscribe without (to UK/Ireland) for a month and follow question above essentially.

Q: OK, I’ve subscribed now - what do I do with the VPN? Leave it open..
A: If you’re using HolaVPN.. GOD NO… disable it / remove it / take it out back and shoot it in the face. You’re set up your recurring payment, you don’t need it anymore.

If you’re using a paid VPN, you don’t need it to browse just because you’re set up payment in a different country. Disable it to access UK/Irish catalogue and / or enable it if you want to access say Netflix in another country. If you know how to do this, you’ve probably no need to read this FAQ!

Q: Hold on, I was charged €3 last month and was charged €3.40 this month.
A: Remember, you’re paying in a foreign currency so it will fluctuate - but it should still work out considerably cheaper.

Q: What’s the cheapest to pay in at the minute?
A: I’m not sure but I’m assuming it’s still Turkish Lira but as above, it can fluctuate. Spreadsheet here indicating current conversions between local currencies and euro may help you decide.

Q: Can I get it even cheaper?
A: Well, you can add a Revolut card and pay via that. Just ensure it’s topped up.

Another tip is topping up your Revolut account considerably (say enough for a year's sub) while exchange rate is in your favour, and then it'll be deducted from that.

Oh, and there is a Revolut thread here full of helpful people to help with any questions you may have on specifics of that.

It's 6.99 for everyone on the first level. The highest level covers you for 4 screens at any given time, full 4k and HDR. This is 12.99 and I think going up another Euro or so soon

4 screen plan for 4k content = €168 a year split between me and 3 family members is €21 each every 6 months. We each have a profile and watch from different places at the same time.

Your family members actually pay you for use of your Netflix account?

This is my situation:

You get half price netflix when you sign up for 6 months. If you cancel after 6 months & join again using another email address you get half price again for 6 and. You can keep doing this if you want. I couldn't be bothered myself as I don't think it expensive but there's 6 live in my brothers house and after 3 year they are starting on the average 2nd email address for each family member

Won't work with 3 for me. Used to until I changed plan and then the option disappeared. Cancelled my subscription and took out a new one with a different email and it still won't appear as a payment method. Pain in the arse. I can use 3 to pay for anything else in the play store so I don't understand.
