By Ali Ahsan | 9 Jan, 2016

Okay, so Netflix is finally available in Pakistan. Lots of people are excited about it while there are some people who aren’t (we’re not exactly sure why). For those of you that are already using the service or are thinking about using it, here are a handful of things you should probably know.


1. Internet Speed

You’re probably going to want a 3 Mbps internet connection to stream most of the content on Netflix. If you want to watch HD videos, you’ll need at least a 5 Mbps internet connection.

5. Netflix original shows are among the best ones around.

6. And if a show isn’t available due to location limitations, there’s always a VPN 😉

ZenMate is one option because of how easy it is to use. It’s a simple Chrome extention that only takes a few steps to set up.
