Now that you have NetfliXBMC on your Kodi media center, most people ask me just how to get the US Netflix portal on Kodi. This one is simple to get done!
To get the US version of Netflix playing on Kodi you will require a Kodi VPN service with servers in the US to change your IP address & location. So, to use US Netflix on Kodi here is what to do:

- Go to WhatismyIPaddress.com or IPLocation.net
- Query your IP address and make sure it appears in the US

Warning: There is no guarantee that NetfliXBMC will work let alone work properly on your Kodi media center. The unofficial add-on is not supported by the official Netflix website and the Kodi add-on may fail to execute altogether.
