Dexter is the kind of show that does serial killers right. Every character is well written, and the story gives you that “one more episode won’t hurt” vibe.
But you have to wonder – can you watch the show on Netflix in the UK?
Well, we hate to be the bearers of bad news, but no, you can’t. If you don’t believe us, go ahead and look it up on the site. You won’t find it.
Because Dexter is only available on Netflix in the US. Use StreamCatcher by ProPrivacy to see for yourself. It’s an online tool that tells you where Netflix titles are available. Just type the show’s name, and hit Find.
If you’d like to find out why the show is only available on Netflix US, and how to unblock it, stick around. We’ll tell you everything you need to know in this five-minute article.
Where Can You Watch Dexter in the UK?
As far as we know, the series is available on Sky and NOW TV (streaming platform owned by Sky). All seasons are available to stream there. As for how long, we can’t say for Sky, but NOW TV says the series will be available for streaming until the 1st of January 2022.
Obviously, you’re going to need a subscription to watch the show on either platform. NOW TV has a free seven-day trial which is nice. But it’s still an inconvenience if you already have a Netflix subscription.
Why Isn’t Dexter Available on Netflix UK?
It’s all due to the way Netflix licenses content. Since they don’t actually own most of the shows and movies on their platform, they need to buy licensing rights to show them in certain regions. Unfortunately, Netflix can’t always get global rights, so they can only stream a title in specific countries. Because of that, they use geo-blocking to make sure users from other regions can’t watch that content.
With Dexter, it’s pretty clear that Netflix wasn’t able to buy licensing rights for the UK since Sky already owns them. So, only Sky has the legal right to stream the show there.
Even if the licensing rights become available, there’s no guarantee Netflix will buy them if their data mining shows that people in your country aren’t interested in the show.
Because licensing content is a huge expense for Netflix. They can’t buy global rights for any title without being 100% sure they’ll see a decent ROI from that investment.
How to Unblock Dexter on Netflix in the UK
Is taking a trip to the US your only option?
No, don’t worry – you don’t need to do anything so extreme. Instead, you can easily unblock Dexter (and any other Netflix title, really) with a VPN.
If you don’t know what a VPN is, it’s an online tool that lets you unblock Internet content by stopping sites from seeing your real geo-location. It does that by routing your traffic through a VPN server that sits between your device and Netflix.
Basically, instead of your connection looking like this:
Device ISP Network Netflix
It will look like this:
Device ISP Network VPN Server Netflix
To Netflix, it will seem like all your connection requests are coming from the VPN server, not your device. Since those requests contain your IP address (which reveals your geo-location), Netflix will think your traffic is coming from the VPN’s IP address (geo-location).
So you just have to use a VPN server that’s in the US, and you’re good to go. Netflix will think you have a US IP address, and will redirect you to the US content library. All that’s left is looking up Dexter and enjoying it.
How to Find a Good Netflix VPN
There are tons of VPNs on the market, so how do you know which one you should use? Pretty much every provider says they unblock Netflix on their site, after all.
Well, here’s the thing – not all VPNs can actually unblock Netflix 24/7. Some of them can’t do it at all, while others can only unblock the site for a short period.
Because Netflix can actually detect VPN IP addresses. When it does that, it redirects VPN users to the Netflix proxy error page.
So the most important thing is first making sure you find a VPN that doesn’t suffer from that problem. You can easily do that by using StreamCatcher by ProPrivacy. When you look a title on the site, it tells you where it’s available, and also recommends the best Netflix VPNs for the job. Those suggestions are based on ProPrivacy’s data, a big VPN review sites that regularly tests the top providers on the market to see which ones can actually unblock Netflix.
Other Things to Look for
Besides unblocking Netflix, here’s what else a VPN has to offer so that you can enjoy a smooth experience:
- Fast speeds & unlimited bandwidth – You just want to binge Dexter, not deal with slowdowns and data caps.
- Apps for most platforms – Like most people, you probably don’t watch full episodes at your PC. It’s not comfortable, really. So you need a VPN that works on other platforms (laptops, mobile devices, tablets, etc.) to watch Dexter anywhere you want.
- Tons of servers – If the provider’s network is too small, you’ll end up dealing with overcrowded servers. Also, it will be hard to find a server that’s close to your location so that you can get optimal VPN speeds. A fleet of over 1,000 or 2,000 servers is ideal.
If you use the tool we linked above, you don’t really need to worry about this too much. The VPNs it recommends all meet these requirements.

Investment in cryptocurrencies is slowly gaining a boom due to the rising awareness of people about them. It has led to the introduction of new digital currencies and SafeMoon is one name that landed in the cryptocurrency world on March 8, 2021.
Until now, there is not enough knowledge about the financial behavior of SafeMoon and its developers are spreading knowledge among people through digital means. They carried out a LIVE session “Ask Me Anything (AMA)” to answer queries about SafeMoon.
This new cryptocurrency got introduced after a hike in the value of DogeCoin over the last few months. Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that came into existence in 2013 as a meme. At the time of writing this, exactly one month has passed since SafeMoon first made its news.
And SafeMoon is doing pretty well in the financial world and it has shown good growth over the last four weeks. SafeMoon developers are rewarding buyers and they are imposing a penalty on SafeMoon sellers to promote this new cryptocurrency.
It is a 100% community-driven and fair launch Defi token which financial experts believe is expected to gain the attention of investors in the near future. Since SafeMoon is not yet registered on any exchange, it is not easy to buy it.
Investors need to first purchase the Binance Coin (BNB) and then it is to be swapped for SafeMoon using a trusted crypto wallet. Financial experts are warning of the risk of investing in this cryptocurrency as not much time has passed since its arrival.
David Nicolas Albanese, a coin guru hopes that SafeMoon has the potential to show continuous growth in the near future. They have expressed that SafeMoon may gain unimaginable popularity in the cryptocurrency world as it is faring well.
