How to watch Interstellar on Netflix

Last Updated:

American Netflix users looking to watch Interstellar online are out of luck: the film is not available on US Netflix, despite it being part of the Netflix content library in countries such as India, Canada and France. It’s not because Netflix has anything against its American subscribers in particular – the streaming platform is simply not allowed to show the movie in certain regions due to licensing issues. However, you can still use a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, to access the movie from America. A VPN allows you to access Netflix from a server outside the country, unlocking region restricted content otherwise unavailable to you.

Listed below are the international Netflix libraries that currently include this movie:

We strongly recommend ExpressVPN due to their blazing fast streaming servers, and ability to quickly and easily unblock Netflix movies only available in countries outside of the USA.

Earth is quickly becoming a planet inhospitable to human life: the environment is turning hostile, generating extreme weather patterns which destroy crops and make much of the surface uninhabitable. Desperate to find another planet on which humanity can survive, NASA discovers a secret message, transmitted through gravitational disturbances in binary code, from an unknown intelligence out in space. The code contains coordinates to a wormhole near Saturn, which would supposedly transport objects to a far-away galaxy containing 12 space systems which have a chance of being able to sustain human life. Interstellar tells the story of NASA pilot Joseph Cooper as he becomes one of the first humans to make this perilous journey to a distant star system, as the rest of humanity pins their remaining hopes on what he discovers in this distant galaxy.
