Is Magic Mike on Netflix? How to Watch Magic Mike from Anywhere

Back in 2012, a new comedy/drama film appeared, and it made an impressive box office by drawing in mostly female viewers. We are talking, of course, of Magic Mike, and we are super glad we get to watch it online on Netflix.

Magic Mike was directed by Steven Soderbergh and its features Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey.

The film revolves around Mike, played by Channing Tatum, who makes money by stripping at a club owned by Dallas, who is played by Matthew McConaughey. His dream, however, is to open a custom furniture business. In the meantime, however, we get to enjoy impressive dance performances and a lot of six packs.

Is Magic Mike on Netflix?

Magic Mike can be found on Netflix if you know where to look. In fact, we managed to find the film is available to watch on Netflix in the United Kingdom or Canada, but it’s currently missing in the United States. It doesn’t mean, however, there is not going to get there sometime soon, but right now, you can’t watch it in the United States.

Similar to the United States are many other countries where the film is not available. For the most part, as long as you have an internet connection and an active Netflix subscription, you’re going to be able to enjoy the film and many others.

Netflix has different libraries in each country that it is available in, so if you live in an area where you do not get to watch the movie, there are ways around the problem.

 

How can I watch Magic Mike on Netflix anywhere?

Even though your local Netflix may not feature Magic Mike right now you can still enjoy the film. What you will need to have is extra is a trusted VPN.

VPNs can route your internet connection through their own servers and assign a new IP address to your account, which will make it appear as if you are in that specific country rather than your actual location.

ExpressVPN is one of the tools we love because it features thousands of servers that you can use at a moment’s notice. It also makes use of great encryption protocols so you can also enjoy some privacy online.

Here’s how you can use ExpressVPN to watch Magic Mike:

  • You’ll need to subscribe to ExpressVPN. Grab a deal that gets you 3 months for free right now!
  • Then you need to get to the apps for your device and find the server that in the United Kingdom or Canada so you can connect to it.
  • Once the connection is established, you can go ahead and launch Netflix in your browser or relaunch the app on your device.
  • Search for Magic Mike and enjoy the show.

See? It’s really that easy.

Doesn’t Netflix know you’re using a VPN?

Netflix does have the technology to detect when people are using certain IP addresses that they know come from VPNs but they don’t always know about all of them and premium tools are less likely to be detected.

If you do happen to have any such issues when you’re using ExpressVPN, you simply have to contact their Customer Support team. They will be more than happy to direct you towards a server that works with Netflix so you can watch the movie you are interested in. Since the team is available 24/7 it doesn’t really matter where you are and what time zone you’re on.

Can’t I use a free VPN instead?

Free VPNs are certainly something that we all want to use because they are free and they should technically get you to enjoy all the content you want. However, things aren’t really like that because free VPNs are often dangerous or useless.

First, we’re going to discuss about the VPNs that are dangerous because we’ve had numerous cases over the years when security researchers discovered malware underneath all the code in various so-called VPNs in app stores. Unfortunately, the malware would collect your personal information, including login details for your email account or your social media or even your banking platform. What this can lead to is identity theft, data breaches for your employer, financial fraud, and so on.

Editor’s note: ExpressVPN is our #1 choice for unblocking Netflix. Sign up for a year with ExpressVPN at $6.67 per month and get 3 months FREE. A 30-day money-back guarantee is included on all plans, so you can cancel any time and get your money back.

There are also tools that are pretty much useless for our goal here. The problem with free VPNs is that they rarely go undetected by platforms like Netflix. Even if they could bypass the blockade, you would still have trouble because free VPNs have few servers but lots of users. Unfortunately, this means that your internet speeds will drop considerably, and it would be nearly impossible to actually stream any type of quality video online.

There are also tools that are offered for free in exchange for you, allowing them to use your device as a sort of server for other app users. This can have a big impact on your device’s performance, which, again, is not ideal. Furthermore, these tools also continue working even after you stopped using the VPN, so your computer will not properly work for a longer time. Ultimately, while we do perfectly understand the attraction of free VPNs, we don’t think that you should go for them because the risks are too high.

Final thoughts

Using ExpressVPN to watch Magic Mike will make your life so much easier because you’ll get to enjoy everything Netflix has to offer from any country you are interested in accessing.

How to FIX Hulu Error Code RUNUNK13 (Full Guide)

Hulu is a video streaming service and like any other streaming service, it does run into trouble from time to time. If the problem is on Hulu’s end e.g., a disruption in service, it is for them to resolve. That said, you may run into problems of your own with Hulu regardless if you’re watching in your browser or on the official app.

Hulu error code RUNUNK13

The Hulu error code RUNUNK13 is a network error. For one reason or the other, your system is unable to connect to the streaming service or it is unable to get a response from Hulu within a reasonable timeframe. It is also possible that apps, your browser’s history, or your  ISP is blocking access to the service.

Basic Checks

Run through the following checks before you move on to a solution to the problem.

  • Stream Hulu on other devices e.g. a smartphone or SmartTV.
  • Try playing a different title.
  • Sign out, and sign in again.

1. Power cycle system and router

A power cycle can help resolve network issues that may otherwise take time to troubleshoot.

  1. Shut down your system.
  2. Go to your router.
  3. Press and hold the power button on the router for 15 seconds.
  4. Release it and wait another 15 seconds.
  5. Turn the router on.
  6. Turn your system on.
  7. Try streaming Hulu.

2. Check service status

The first thing you should check is if Hulu is experiencing a service outage. It may be widespread or intermittent.

  1. Open your browser.
  2. Visit Down for everyone or just me.
  3. Enter the full URL for Hulu and tap Enter.
  4. You can also check the official Hulu Support Twitter account for an update about the service’s status.

3. Check regional blocks

It is possible that the service is up but your ISP is blocking it.

  1. Open Command Prompt.
  2. Run the following command.
ping 199.200.50.0
  1. If the request times out, but the service is up, it is possible that your ISP is blocking Hulu.
  2. Use a VPN and run this command again. If you get a response from the IP, it means that your ISP is blocking access to Hulu. You will need to talk to them to sort this out or use a VPN to watch Hulu.

4. Clear browser cache

Assuming your ISP is not blocking Hulu, and the service is up and running, your browser may be the problem.

  1. Open your browser.
  2. Go to the browser’s settings.
  3. Look for cookies and cache, or something similar.
  4. Clear all cookies and the cache.
  5. Restart the browser.
  6. Visit Hulu and try streaming.

5. Uninstall and reinstall app

If you’re using the Hulu app on Windows 10, uninstall and reinstall it.

  1. Open the Start Menu.
  2. Go to the apps’ list.
  3. Look for Hulu.
  4. Right-click it, and select Uninstall.
  5. Once uninstalled, install the app again.

6. Reset Hulu app

On Windows 10, you can reset the Hulu app from the Settings app. This may help when uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t do anything.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Go to Apps.
  3. Select Hulu from the apps’ list.
  4. Click Advanced Options.
  5. Scroll down, and click Reset.
  6. Open Hulu, sign in, and try streaming.

7. Remove device and add it again

Try removing your device and adding it again.

  1. Sign in to Hulu in your browser.
  2. Click your profile at the top right and select Account.
  3. Look for Watch Hulu on your device on the Account page.
  4. Click Manage Devices.
  5. Click ‘Remove’ next to the device that you’re watching on.
  6. You will be signed out of the device. Sign in again and try streaming.

Try a VPN

A VPN can prevent Hulu from streaming. It can also help you stream from the service. It really depends on the VPN. Look for a VPN service that works well with Hulu and try using it if nothing else works.

Conclusion

As far as network problems on your own system go, these solutions will allow you to fix the Hulu error code RUNUNK13. Streaming services are simple to use and their network settings aren’t complicated so in most cases a power cycle alone will do the job. That said, if you watch from behind a VPN, you may have to look for a new, more robust service.

How to FIX the Netflix No Sound Error

Netflix is a streaming service that works as a simple web app. There are dedicated apps for Netflix for Windows 10, iOS, and Android but none of them are difficult to set up. You install the app, or sign into the website, pick something to play, and you’re good to go. Netflix does run into problems but these problems prevent the service from playing anything at all, and you see an error code e.g. the  Netflix Error Code U7361-1254-C00DB3B2, or similar.

Netflix No Sound

One very odd and somewhat isolated problem that some Netflix users face is that no sound plays even though the video does. It can happen if you’re watching in your browser, or if you’re using the Netflix UWP app on Windows 10.

No Sound on Netflix

Basic checks

On your system make sure;

  • The volume is not set to zero or set too low.
  • You’re able to play audio/video in a different app and the sound plays just fine.
  • You’ve restarted your system at least once and tried to play something in Netflix.
  • No other app is currently playing audio.
  • Skype is not actively using the sound devices.
  • Check if the service is down.

Check sound device

Apps can be assigned to use a specific audio device on Windows 10. It’s possible that the Netflix app or the browser you’re watching Netflix in has been assigned a device that isn’t active at the moment.

  1. Click the speaker icon in the system tray.
  2. From the pop-up take note of the current audio output device.
  3. Open the Settings app.
  4. Go to the Sounds tab.
  5. Scroll to the end, and click App Volume and Device Preferences.
  6. Open the Output dropdown next to the Netflix app or the browser you’re watching it in, and select the current output device. Do not leave it set to Default.
  7. Close the Netflix app/browser, and open it again.
  8. Play something.

Check audio streams

Netflix shows and movies are available in multiple languages and multiple audio streams. Users can choose which audio they want to use. It’s possible that a glitch with a title or with selecting the audio is causing the no sound in Netflix problem.

  1. Open the Netflix app (or visit it in your browser).
  2. Click the subtitles button; it looks like a chat bubble.
  3. From the Audio selection, pick a different audio stream.
  4. Play something. If the sound starts working, change the audio stream back and it should play as well.

Turn off spatial sound

Windows 10 introduced spatial sound. It’s supposed to give the sound an omnipresent, multi-directional feel. In truth, it tends to mess with quite a few apps and Netflix is no exception.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Go to the System group of settings.
  3. Select the Sound tab.
  4. Click ‘Device Properties’ under the Output section.
  5. Open the Spatial Sound dropdown, and select Off.
  6. Restart the system, and play something on Netflix.

Use a supported browser

Netflix is often watched in a browser and while it can be accessed via a simple enough website, the website and its player aren’t supported by all browsers. Safari, for example, requires a plugin. If you’re using a browser that requires additional plugins or special add-ons to play Netflix, consider using a supported browser instead.

On Windows 10 you can use;

On macOS you can use;

  • Chrome
  • Firefox

Check VPN

If you’re using a VPN to watch Netflix, try turning it off or check if it is giving you a decent download speed to watch Netflix.

If the VPN is slow, or it keeps disconnecting, it may be the reason you’re not getting an audio stream.

It’s also possible that Netflix is trying to block the VPN and it is only partially succeeding i.e. the audio won’t work but the video will.

Turn the VPN off and then try playing something on Netflix.

Switch to studio quality sound

Sound has quality. It may not be as obvious as a video’s quality but it nevertheless matters when it comes to playing an online video.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Go to Hardware and Sound>Sound.
  3. Select the Playback tab.
  4. Select your speakers, and click the Properties button.
  5. Go to the Advanced tab.
  6. Open the sample rate and bit depth dropdown.
  7. Select a rate that has (Studio Quality) written next to it. You may see several qualities that are studio quality. Try each one-by-on.
  8. Restart the system after changing the quality and play something on Netflix.

Conclusion

Netflix bugs aren’t hard to fix, error code, or not. The fixes we’ve listed here are for the Netflix app or for the browser that you watch Netflix on. If your system is experiencing sound problems, you will have to troubleshoot those separately. If you’re using any sort of virtual audio driver, or you’ve connected an external sound card to your system, it’s a good idea to remove them all or disable them.

How to Watch How to Get Away with Murder on Netflix

How to Get Away with Murder is certainly one of the most engaging legal thrillers to have ever aired. Fans who want to go back for more and rewatch the series can thankfully do it over on Netflix, although the series isn’t available all over the world.

How to Get Away with Murder on Netflix

How to Get Away With Murder features a stellar cast that includes Viola Davis, Billy Brown, Alfred Enoch, and many others. The show follows the story of Annalise Keating, a law professor who becomes involved in a murder plot along with five of her students.

Over six seasons, the story has its ups and downs and overall managed to perfectly capture the audience. The show received numerous accolades. Viola Davis became the first black woman to win the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and much more.

 

Can I watch How to Get Away with Murder on Netflix?

Thankfully, since this show is so popular, it’s also possible to watch and rewatch it over on Netflix. Of course, it all depends on where you live, because Netflix libraries vary from country to country.

In our case, as far as How to Get Away with Murder goes, you’ll find that it’s available in countries like the United States and the United Kingdom in full – meaning all six seasons -, but only has five seasons over in Canada and Japan, while in other countries it’s completely missing.

Can I watch How to Get Away with Murder Season 6 on Netflix?

The show is available to watch in multiple countries on Netflix, but not all of them feature all six seasons that have aired. With the sixth and final season ending back in May, Netflix hasn’t yet managed to update the library for everyone around the world. It doesn’t mean that you can’t watch the final season, however – it just means you need a VPN.

How can I watch Season 6 of How to Get Away with Murder on Netflix from anywhere?

No matter what country you’re in, as long as you have a Netflix active subscription, you can watch How to Get Away with Murder. All you’ll need to do is to have a VPN. As you probably know, since Netflix has libraries in each country it’s available in, the platforms are also geoblocked. This means that you can only watch content designated for your country.

VPNs can help route your Internet connection through their own servers and assign you a new IP address. This will allow you to circumvent the blockades entirely and access content from anywhere in the world.

We recommend the best tool we tested – ExpressVPN. The service has thousands of servers in close to 100 countries, makes use of great encryption protocols, and works flawlessly.

Here’s how you can watch How to Get Away with Murder with ExpressVPN:

  • First, you need to subscribe to ExpressVPN. You can get 3 months for free, so grab that deal!
  • Then, you have to pick a server that’s located in a country where the sixth season of How to Get Away with Murder, like the United States or United Kingdom.
  • Once the connection is established, you can load Netflix in a new tab and search for How to Get Away with Murder.

Won’t Netflix know I’m using a VPN?

Normally, VPNs can be spotted by Netflix, but not all of them. Our experience with ExpressVPN has been good so far and we haven’t had issues with getting blocked. However, that does not mean it can’t happen, as Netflix can block IP sets overnight.

If you happen to have this issue, you should do one thing – contact Customer Support. They’ll be more than happy to help you figure out which server to use to bypass the Netflix blockade.

Editor’s note: ExpressVPN is our #1 choice for unblocking Netflix. Sign up for a year with ExpressVPN at $6.67 per month and get 3 months FREE. A 30-day money-back guarantee is included on all plans, so you can cancel any time and get your money back.

Why not use a free VPN?

It’s true that ExpressVPN and other pro VPNs cost a bit and we’ve all become accustomed to free tools, but the reality is that very few things are free. When it comes to VPNs, choosing such a tool can even be dangerous.

Quite often over the past few years, security researchers have dug up so-called VPNs from app stores that were carrying Trojans or other malware types.

Even if the VPN isn’t bugged, it can be pretty much useless. Free VPNs don’t have many servers since they have little financial support, and they’re overused as many people try to use them at once. This results in Internet speeds that will make streaming anything a nightmare. There are other free VPNs as well that will even use your computer as a server of sorts, allowing other people to use it as such, which in turn will lower your computer’s performance.

Whichever way you want to cut it, free VPNs are too risky or not very useful. In the end, a VPN doesn’t cost that much and you’re much better off protecting yourself and your privacy.

Final thoughts

Watching How to Get Away with Murder on Netflix is super easy. If you don’t have the show on your local library, at all, or if you simply want to be able to also watch the sixth season that’s not available for you, you can follow the instructions above and get the content you want.

How to Watch V for Vendetta on Netflix from Anywhere

V for Vendetta is one of the films that has marked anyone that’s seen it in one way or another, and if you want another look at it, you can head over to Netflix, even if the movie is not available in your country.

How to Watch V for Vendetta on Netflix

V for Vendetta premiered back in 2005 and it is directed by James McTeigue, written by the Wachowskis. The story is based on the DC/Vertigo Comics with the same name.

The film is based in the United Kingdom where a supremacist and neo-fascist totalitarian regime has taken over. V is an anarchist masked freedom fighter who seeks to push for a revolution. Hugo Weaving plays V, while Natalie Portman plays Evey.

 

Can I watch V for Vendetta on Netflix?

V for Vendetta is available to watch on Netflix, but it’s not available in all markets. As you may already know, Netflix has separate libraries for each country where it is available. Even though everyone pays pretty much the same subscription price, the differences are massive, especially between the United States and any other country.

Nonetheless, as far as V for Vendetta goes, we’ve dug a bit through multiple Netflix libraries and found the movie available in the United States, United Kingdom, and Japan, but missing from Canada or Australia, for instance.

Thankfully, since we are all connected to the Internet, there’s a little bit of “magic” any of us can do to reach content that is not available to us locally. That magic is called a VPN.

 

How can I watch V for Vendetta on Netflix from anywhere?

VPNs can help anyone watch content they are blocked from. VPNs route your Internet connection through their own servers, encrypt everything, and assign a new IP address to match those in your chosen location

Our recommendation is to use ExpressVPN, which is a tool that worked great during and after our testing, so we trust it quite a bit. It features servers in about 100 countries, uses great encryption protocols, and we haven’t had issues with it.

Here’s how you can use ExpressVPN:

  • You’ll need to subscribe to ExpressVPN first. You can enjoy 3 months for free, so make sure you check out this deal!
  • Next, you have to pick a server located in the United States or UK.
  • As soon as the connection is established, you can load Netflix in a new tab and load V for Vendetta.

What if Netflix knows I’m using a VPN?

It’s true that Netflix has VPN-detection software on its platform, but it doesn’t always work to sniff out premium VPNs. Also, our experience with ExpressVPN is that it pretty much goes undetected.

However, if you do get the dreaded notification from Netflix asking you to shut off your VPN and reload, you have to do one thing first – contact Customer Support.

You see, there are servers that Netflix hasn’t managed to spot and block, and Customer Support will help you find those so you can use them.

Editor’s note: ExpressVPN is our #1 choice for unblocking Netflix. Sign up for a year with ExpressVPN at $6.67 per month and get 3 months FREE. A 30-day money-back guarantee is included on all plans, so you can cancel any time and get your money back.

Why not use a free VPN?

While ExpressVPN and other premium tools may cost a few bucks each month, they’re more than worth it. In fact, it’s preferable you subscribe to a VPN, even though there are plenty of “free” versions online because those can prove to be dangerous.

One issue we’ve seen many times before is that free VPNs were discovered to carry Trojans or other malware. When security researchers dug into their codes, they found that they were not what they said they were and were actually digging information on people, exploiting their devices and so on.

There are also true VPNs that are offered for free, but there are other issues surrounding those. First of all, since they’re free they don’t have loads of servers. Second of all, as most things free, loads of people are going to try to use them. With countless folks trying to use the same servers, your Internet connections will slow down to such speeds that streaming anything will be a nightmare.

Another type of VPNs will actually use your own computer as a sort of server for other users in a trade-off type of deal, but by doing that your device’s performance will be heavily impacted. However you put it, the prospect of using a free VPN isn’t very alluring.

Final thoughts

V for Vendetta is certainly a movie that is worth watching and rewatching many times, as you notice another aspect every time you do. Thankfully, it’s possible to do that over Netflix if you have the right tools at your disposal, even if the film is not available locally. Have fun streaming V for Vendetta!
