Now when you go to the Netflix site, users see an alert “not available in your area”. To change the situation, set up a VPN. It is important that you can choose the region, and VPN was not in the bath of the service, as Netflix blocks them, suitable Windscribe or Urban Free VPN. Each country has its own content, but if you have made an official Russian voice acting for the series, you can choose it in any version of Netflix. At the same time, we should not expect that new films and TV series will appear in Russian.

How to pay for a subscription

Russian payment cards no longer work, so you will have to change the method of payment. Visa and Mastercard do not work, PayPal has also suspended its work in Russia. You can try to get gift cards and certificates. Amazon, where it was previously possible to buy an electronic certificate, has stopped retail trade in Russia and does not allow new users from Russia to register. You can also find the certificate on a third-party site such as Plati.ru. To activate the promo code, your Netflix account must be registered in the country in whose currency the certificate was purchased. But there is a risk of encountering scammers who sell used code or may even link to a phishing site.

It is also possible to pay with the help of acquaintances from abroad. A foreign assistant can either pay for the account or send a gift code from a certificate or card. He must create a new account and link his own card. You can send money to a friend using a payment system, for example, Payeer, which allows you to make payments in different currencies. You should also keep in mind that you will have to pay for the subscription at the rate of the selected country.

You can also pay for Netflix using your Apple ID. It is possible to top up your Apple ID account via your phone or Apple gift cards. You can buy an Apple gift certificate, for example, using a QIWI wallet. It remains to pay for the purchase on your Apple TV, but will have to install a VPN on the TV. Express VPN explains how to do it.

Tips for Spotify users

After the streaming service stopped updating the charts, and many artists have already left the site, the installation of VPN is involuntarily suggested. As with Netflix, it should be able to select a region. In the “Country or region” column, change the region to the one you want. You should be prepared for the fact that this procedure will have to be repeated every 14 days, as Spotify may reset the profile region settings. Then there is also an option with a gift card, you can buy it in “Avito”, “Yandex.Market”, social networks in search of “Spotify Gift Card”. And then you need to enter the code of your gift card.

Spotify has the option of a collective subscription. The user can invite up to five people and pay for all. So the “head of the family” needs to create a foreign account and pay for it on the spot, and the rest has to turn on the VPN to the country of the account holder, connect to the account and specify the desired physical address. The public on VKontakte Spotify Community has compiled a white list of subscription sellers.

And if you are not ready for all the above manipulations, you can go to the domestic online cinemas Okko, KION, more.tv, Amediateka, Kinopoisk and many others. There are both Russian films and Hollywood premieres. LitRes has also launched a campaign in which users of streaming services who have left Russia can receive a two-month free premium subscription to the MyBook service. To do this, send to the support service podarok@mybook.ru a screenshot of the profile page in any subscription service, indicating “podarok” in the subject of the letter.
