Netflix blocks the IP address pools of VPN servers in order to not let you use a VPN service when watching its content. It also blocks all information from GPS services.
How to Get Around This
The good news is that if you’re accessing Netflix without being connected to a VPN, you can continue doing that even when you connect to IPVanish. This is made possible by the split tunneling feature that’s available on the FireOS and Android devices. You can use this feature to route your apps through the ISP and not the VPN.
You will have more control over the way you can channel Internet traffic when using a VPN connection. The split tunneling feature is available for all Android devices.

If this is your real information, you need to use a VPN to protect your identity.
