Netflix addict? ZenMate lets you watch whatever you want wherever you are

If you’re a big fan of House of Cards, the season two launch last week will have taught you that in the list of life priorities Netflix probably comes higher up than say going to work, sleeping and personal hygiene.

So what do you do when you’re travelling and can’t get your Netflix hit for the day? Or even worse, a whole week?! Because let’s face it, binge-watching [Insert your TV show addiction of choice] will always beat visiting famous landmarks.

Enter ZenMate, which allows you to access any website from anywhere in the world. The Chrome extension is like a regular Virtual Private Network (VPN) and once it’s installed you can choose where you want your browser to be detected to be coming from, meaning you can watch whatever you want regardless of where you are.

Many of ZenMate’s early users were from countries with restricted access to the internet – like China and Iran – but in recent months its Netflix and TV addicts from the US and Europe that are using it to get their fix regardless of where they are. Which doesn’t surprise us in the slightest.

Tip: If you’ve always happily watched Netflix from the UK and assumed you weren’t missing out on anything, then use ZenMate to “pretend” you’re watching from the US instead. This way you’ll get access to all kinds of different shows and movies.
