Would you like to stream content on Netflix and use a VPN or a SmartDNS service at the same time? You have already tried it, but instead of watching your preferred content, you instead got the streaming error and error code M7037-1111 or M7111-5059.
Many people want to use a VPN provider to access a different Netflix region from where they are actually at. I frequently get questions from people who just bought a VPN subscription to a provider, and now they wonder why they can't change their Netflix region just like that. So, what's the deal? What is the problem?
There is another group of people as well suffering. Those are people who take online security and privacy seriously. Maybe you do not want to bypass geo-blocks, all you want is to use a VPN to secure your Internet connection, and at the same time stream your favorite Netflix content. People doing like this will also suffer from the streaming error messages on Netflix. So, what can be done?

How to get rid of the streaming errors on Netflix?
You have probably understood by now that Netflix blocks most VPN providers on the market. The reason is simple. They do not want people to jump between all the different regions only to watch their favorite content there and afterward move on to another region. This is also because of copyright rules and regulations. For that reason, Netflix cracked down on IP addresses used by VPN providers in January 2016, and since then the streaming error codes can be seen as you use the IP's of hundreds of VPN providers on the market. But, there are some holes in their defense, and there are some VPN providers that work with quite a lot of Netflix regions still.
Use this VPN provider to access US Netflix/Canadian Netflix and UK Netflix
I am writing this article on the first day of September in 2018. I am writing this article on Steemit, a platform which is built on the blockchain technology. And what gets stuck on the blockchain, is stuck there forever. And in addition, you cannot change the information later. So, once I publish this article I can change it for seven days, but after that... game over. And that is quite dangerous in a world where Netflix bans new IP addresses every day. For that reason, I suggest that if you read this article sometime in 2019, visit netflix.fromabroad.org to find up to date information, as the information in this article might become outdated in the coming months and years.
But, if you want to use a VPN provider that will secure your Internet connection, and at the same time give you access to American Netflix, Canadian Netflix, and UK Netflix, visit the website of ExpressVPN. Their services have been great for a long time, and they have worked non-stop with American Netflix for as long as I can remember. They also have nice looking applications ready for iOS users, Android users, Windows users and Mac users, making it easy to handle and use.
The last time I tested them, I could also use ExpressVPN to access German, French, Italian, and Australian Netflix, but I cannot guarantee you that these regions will work with ExpressVPN for a long time.
This is the way to get rid of the streaming error messages on Netflix
Again, if you want to get rid of the streaming error messages on Netflix (with code M7037-1111 or M7111-5059), use the VPN services of ExpressVPN and connect to one of their servers in the USA, Canada, or in the UK. You will then get access to the local Netflix content of that given nation.
- Visit the ExpressVPN website (and get 3 months extra for free if you sign up for 12 months)
You can try to connect to ExpressVPN servers in other nations as well, but I cannot guarantee you that they will work. If you still get the streaming error message as you connect to an ExpressVPN server, try another server. Not all their servers in the United States will work with Netflix either, but a large amount of them do.
Don't live being envious of the people living in the United States and in Canada
Every month I look through the list of content coming to Netflix in Canada and in the United States. On September 5th in 2018, both these regions will get the brand new Marvel movie, Black Panther. This has been one of the highest grossing movies so far in 2018, and already it can be streamed in these regions. You might just sit there being jealous of your friends in the USA and in Canada who can stream... or you can use ExpressVPN and get access to these regions yourself. It is your choice!
You can read more about ExpressVPN in this ExpressVPN review, or visit the ExpressVPN website right away (if you are in a hurry). For updated information on how to access different Netflix regions, visit netflix.fromabroad.org.
