Divergent is the first installment in the near-future dystopian sci-fi series of the same name. Originally a novel (2011), Divergent greenlit for film and release in 2014, doing $288.9 million at the box office worldwide.
Now you can stream Divergent on Netflix, but only in select countries.
Fortunately, you can browse and stream Netflix catalogs from any country, by following the steps below.
Is Divergent On Netflix?
Yes, as of December 2022, Divergent is available on Netflix in these countries:
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
What if Divergent is not available in my country?
Netflix’s catalog is different in every country around the world. Some shows and movies are available in one but not in others.
However, all Netflix subscriptions are actually global. If you travel to another country, you’ll be able to stream from their content library (and but not that of your home country).
Even better, you can travel virtually simply by changing your IP geo-location with an affordable tool called a VPN: Virtual Private Network.
Which VPN to use for Netflix?
You can’t just use any VPN service, since Netflix actively tries to detect and block VPN traffic. However there are a few VPN companies that provide reliable, fast connections to Netflix’s global content library.
You two best VPNs are:
Either will be perfect for your needs and each has server locations in countries where Divergent is currently streaming on Netflix.
How to Watch Divergent using a VPN
It’s incredibly easy access Divergent from another country’s Netflix library. Once you’ve installed the included VPN app on your device, follow these simple steps:
- Choose a server location where Divergent is streaming
- Open Netflix and watch
Yes, it’s really that easy. Both of the VPNs above have built-in streaming technology that will auto-route your Netflix geolocation to the same region as the server you’re connected to.
1. Choose a server location
Choose a server location in a country where Divergent is currently streaming, such as the United Kingdom.
Then click connect.

2. Open Netflix and Stream Divergent
Once your VPN connection is active, you can open Netflix in your browser or dedicated app. You should now be able to search for it and find it in the Netflix library, or click here to navigate to the title page directly.
If you still don’t see Divergent in your app, follow the troubleshooting steps below. Often, the simplest fix, however, is to log out of your profile and log back in. In my testing this is about 75% effective.
Is the entire Divergent Trilogy on Netflix?
Yes, all 3 divergent films (Divergent, Insurgent & Allegiant) are on Netflix, though not necessarily in the same countries.
Currently, there are several countries where you can stream all three movies in the Divergent Trilogy:
- United Kingdom
If you’re using a Netflix-ready VPN and are connected to the correct server location but still can’t access Divergent, here are a couple steps to try:
- Try another country
- Clear you cache & cookies (browser)
- Use a guest browser account (browser)
- Log into a different Netflix profile
- Log out of your account and log back in
- Use the Netflix app instead of the browser
- Access the title directly rather than searching
Basically, Netflix tracks your real location and stores in their app or browser cookies. They don’t assume you’ll be switching locations quickly or frequently. So in order to access other library’s you may need to delete that cached data for Netflix to show you the updated content.
If all else fails, keep trying different server locations until you find one that works. And remember, not all VPNs are created equal. Only a handful can unblock Netflix in more than 3 regions.
