Instructions to those who want to watch Forrest Gump on Netflix.

Forrest Gump is a movie from 1994. I truly believe that this is one of the best movies I have ever seen, and I am not alone in feeling like that. This movie is simply a masterpiece. Not only is it amazing because of Tom Hanks, but because the story itself is brilliant. In other words, if you haven’t seen Forrest Gump yet, the time is definitely ripe to do so. If you have seen it already, you know very well why it is worth watching this movie a second, third, fourth, or maybe a fifth time. But, how can you find and watch Forrest Gump on Netflix? In this short guide, I will tell you how it can be done.

Netflix produces a lot of material. They have broadcasting rights for such material worldwide. Forrest Gump, however, isn’t a Netflix production. In fact, Netflix didn’t even exist when Forrest Gump was created and won 6 Academy Awards. But, Netflix has bought the broadcasting rights for Forrest Gump in a couple of countries. As a result, you can watch Forrest Gump on Netflix in a few countries. Would you like to know which those countries are and how you can get access to Forrest Gump and other movies in those countries?

Forrest Gump on Netflix

It is time to watch Forrest Gump on Netflix.

At the time I am writing, Forrest Gump is on Netflix in approximately 10 countries. But, if it isn’t available in your country, you need to use the VPN services of NordVPN to get access to this movie on Netflix.

Visit the NordVPN website.

NordVPN is a fantastic VPN and they also have other products such as a password manager, cloud storage, and malware protection. But, to watch Forrest Gump eat chocolate from his chocolate box, you only need the basic VPN service from NordVPN.

You can cancel your subscription for 30 days and get a full refund from NordVPN if you do not like the service. In other words, you don’t have to worry at all when you purchase your subscription. If you do not like it or if it doesn’t work, simply ask for a refund! By the way, it will work, so you do not have to worry about that.

A few words about VPNs and what they can do for you (you don’t have to read this).

NordVPN has servers in more than 60 countries. When you connect to one of their servers, all your traffic is sent through a VPN tunnel. This data is encrypted and hidden from your ISP and others. As a result, it adds an additional layer of security to your online activities. All your online traffic will then seem to originate from the VPN server and not you and your computer. The consequence is, therefore, that as you connect to a NordVPN server in, for example, Sweden, you will get a Swedish IP address and all websites will believe that you are in Sweden.

Bring some popcorn – it is time for a Netflix party!

By now, you have hopefully bought a NordVPN subscription. When you have done so, download and install NordVPN on the different devices on which you want to watch Netflix content. This is easy and you can use one subscription on multiple devices simultaneously.

Now you can launch the NordVPN application and connect to a server in one of the following countries:

  • Argentina
  • Sweden
  • Poland

If your Netflix account is registered in an EU country, the easiest is to connect to a server outside the EU (that is Argentina). If you live outside the EU, you can connect to servers in any of the mentioned countries.

From the moment you click the connect button in the NordVPN application it only takes a few seconds before the connection is made. You will then have a local IP address in that given country. It is time to visit the Netflix website (or open the Netflix application). You will now see the local Netflix content of that country, meaning that you can now watch Forrest Gump on Netflix.

Are you happy? You can now watch Tom Hanks in his role as Forrest Gump on Netflix. It is a truly amazing movie, so I wish you a lot of joy while watching it.

Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you're gonna get.

What to do when you are finished watching Forrest Gump on Netflix?

Why don’t you look around in order to find other fantastic movies? Now that you have a NordVPN subscription you have access to Netflix content in more than 10 countries, giving you access to lots of new movies and TV shows that you do not have access to right now.

On Netflix in Argentina you can, for example, find the movie Parasite from 2019 (which won a lot of Oscar statues as well). If you connect to a server in Japan, you can watch the special edition of Parasite available in black/white.

Would you rather sleep? Connect to a NordVPN server in Japan and watch La La Land!

As you probably understand, there are lots of options and opportunities. You can even use the VPN to unblock normal TV networks such as BBC, ITV, RAI, ZDF, RTVE, SVT, NRK, and DR, and streaming services such as Paramount+, PeacockTV, and Hulu.
