What is Netflix
Netflix is an online video streaming platform that provides and produces movies and TV shows. It is a subscription-based service. It comes with three subscription plans. The Basic plan costs $8.99/month, The Standard plan costs $12.99/month, and the Premium plan costs $15.99/month. All the subscriptions have no limitations on video content, only the video quality and number of the screen varies. It is the best streaming app for all binge-watchers. With Netflix, you can get to stream all the latest movies and TV shows.
Streaming without a VPN exposes your IP address, making you vulnerable to privacy breaches and hacker attacks. Without encryption, your online activities are more susceptible to monitoring by ISPs, snoopers, and the government. Lastly, accessing geo-restricted content may be impossible without a VPN, limiting your entertainment options. Hence, it is recommended to use a VPN.
Of all the available VPNs, I recommend NordVPN if you ever want to watch the desired movies, TV shows, or sports events on your Firestick without risking your privacy. NordVPN is the fastest and best VPN service provider with global coverage. You can now avail yourself of the New Year's deal of 67% off + 3 Months Extra of NordVPN to stay anonymous.
