A person who likes surfing online a lot would’ve definitely came across the phrase ‘Netflix and Chill’. Netflix is an online streaming service that people use to stream and watch their favorite TV shows and Movies.
This US based service is something that every entertainment geek is talking about. People love this service because of the content and its quality provided at a fair price. But obviously, not everyone likes paying for their favorite content.
That’s where the Netflix Kodi add-on; NetfliXBMC comes to play. NetfliXBMC is one of the most popular and searched-for add-on. Providing all the Netflix content streams, this add-on is something every Kodi user wants to have. The number of Netflix Kodi add-on users has increased significantly.
NetfliXBMC provides the users access to all the TV shows, Movies and other programs that Netflix has. But one thing to remember is that without a VPN service, you can use this Netflix Kodi add-on only in US. If you’re travelling or living abroad, you’ll need a Kodi VPN to surpass geo-restrictions of this Kodi Netflix add-on.

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
