postheadericon How to Watch Netflix in Egypt

You can use VPNs to watch Netflix Instant in Egypt.

How to Watch Netflix Instant in Egypt

Netflix’s European expansion is well underway. The streaming giant’s big plans to assert their model all over the globe has expanded into new markets like Germany and France.

On the other hand, if you happen to live in, or happen to be working in, Africa or the Middle East, then you’re not so lucky. If you’re in Egypt, then you’re in both of those regions, and you shouldn’t be expecting Netflix anytime soon.

Well, we find that to be unacceptable. There’s no reason Egyptians, or folks on extended business or vacation in Egypt, shouldn’t be able to keep up on House of Cards or Orange Is the New Black.

But where there’s a will, there’s a way, and we know exactly what you need to do to get Netflix streaming in your homes.

Watch Netflix Instant in Egypt with a VPN

It’s quite simple, really; all you need to do is subscribe to a VPN.

A VPN service, or Virtual Private Network service, is a subscription-based service that will improve your wireless network in a few crucial ways.

To start with, VPNs are designed to make your entire network safer. When you log in to a VPN, all of your online information (including sensitive information, like credit card numbers and e-mails) is tunneled through encrypted servers that VPN service providers set up all over the world. No need to worry about identity thieves, hackers, or snooping government agents when they can’t trace your information.

Secondly – and this is the important part for people trying to stream Netflix Instant where it isn’t available – your VPN service provider allows you to access geographically restricted material. By tunneling all of your information through globally varied servers, you can change your IP address to one in a country of your choosing, effectively tricking your computer into allowing you to go to websites you otherwise wouldn’t be able to.

Want to watch Netflix Instant in Egypt or anywhere in the Middle East? Log in to your VPN, pick an American server, and bam! You get a US-based IP address and you can stream to your heart’s content.

FlashRouter-Ready VPNs for Watching Netflix Instant in Egypt

FlashRouters has done extensive research & VPN testing experience, and some of the most consistent connections & best speeds for US-based IP address from Egypt include IPVanish (owns their own servers), HideMyAss (largest amount of IP addresses), PureVPN (low cost full year plans), and PrivateInternetAccess (lowest monthly price).

But if these VPNs don’t suit you for one reason or another, we have a whole list of FlashRouter-supported VPN service providers which will tell you everything you’d want to know about each provider and what they can do for you.

Enjoy Netflix Instant with a FlashRouter

But if you really want to have the most enjoyable possible Netflix Instant streaming experience as possible, then you’d better get yourself a FlashRouter.

We, at FlashRouters, can offer the best, most versatile, most powerful routers around because we flash them with DD-WRT and Tomato firmware. These replacement firmwares take already intimidating routers and supercharge them, creating all sorts of advanced options for the user, like an extendable wireless range, extra security options, and the ability to allocate your bandwidth as you please (a great feature for people streaming movies and television).

A FlashRouter is also a big boon for VPN users. Hold on to your old router and use our dual router setup (illustrated below) to allow yourself to switch back and forth between your VPN and your local network with ease.

How To Use VPN on a Router

Better yet, if you subscribe to any VPN on our official supported provider list, we’ll send your FlashRouter all set up to work with your VPN. Setting up a VPN on your router can be tricky, so we like to take that hassle off your plate and do it on our own.

No matter what price range you’re in, what level of power or speed you require from your router, we’ve got the device to meet and exceed your needs.

To get a good sense of the routers we offer, we recommend taking a look at our best-selling VPN provider list, or the best DD-WRT routers list. You’re certain to find something that suits you.

Okay, fine, we’ll make a few specific recommendations. If you’re looking for something simple and economical that will vastly improve your wireless network without breaking the bank, we’d tell you to take a look at the Linksys E1200 DD-WRT FlashRouter or the Linksys E2500 Tomato FlashRouter.

But if you’re ready for the big jump, and if you want the one of the baddest, most intensely powerful routers on the block, then you’ve gotta go with the Netgear R7000 DD-WRT FlashRouter. It’s the alpha male of our line.

REDMOND, Wash. — March 23, 2015 — Microsoft Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. have expanded their global partnership to bring Microsoft mobile productivity services to more consumers and business customers.

  • In the first half of 2015, Samsung is planning to pre-install Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive and Skype on select Samsung Android tablets.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will also come with 100 GB of additional free cloud storage for two years through Microsoft OneDrive, allowing extra storage space.

Businesses that purchase devices through Samsung’s business-to-business sales channels will have access to three versions of Office 365 — Business, Business Premium and Enterprise — coupled with Samsung’s KNOX security solution. The bundle also includes a setup service from Samsung to help businesses get up and running with products and provides ongoing support.

Microsoft Office 365, powered by the cloud, provides businesses with access to familiar Office applications, including email, calendar, videoconferencing and up-to-date documents, all optimized for a seamless experience across any Internet-connected device — from PCs to smartphones and tablets. Samsung KNOX provides a way for customers to easily switch between personal and business profiles on their devices, while helping keep them secure.
