How to Change Regions in Streaming Services Such as Netflix or Amazon

Streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video have very different catalogues of content depending on which region you're connected to. With Privacy Hero, you can easily switch between regions to enjoy all the content these services have to offer.  

This guide will show you how to quickly switch between regions for our supported streaming services. The guide will be broken into two parts, Changing Streaming Regions and Disabling Streaming Relocation for a Service (Watch Your Own Country's Content).

Note: For services such as Hulu or BBC iPlayer that only support a single region, Privacy Hero will automatically relocate your device. This guide is only for supported services that have separate catalogues of content for different regions.
