There are plenty of ways to get around Netflix's region blocking, and I found a better one.

  • Important to note that services like UnoTelly use a DNS based solution to make it seem like you are in a country where as VPNs actually have to run through a separate server which makes them a slower option, often significantly so.

    Yes - we did chat about this in the office, should have made a note in the article. It's important to note that Unotelly's UnoVPN service is blocked by Netflix atm too though.
  • Just the article i as looking for. Gonna give this a shot. Hopefully its not too tricky for a non--techy like me (you seem to know your way around a router

    The problem with this service is that when you have connected to a "netflix" server then you can't p2p (torrent). There is a faq that talks about their smart switching feature that will detect torrent traffic (for instance) and switch to a p2p canadian server but then your netflix is screwed. Same with gaming. In SA most PS4 gamers (for instance) have EU accounts. If the servers that are been connected to are in the EU (one would assume for an EU account) then your traffic is first going to travel to the states, through the NordVPN US netflix server, and then make its way to the EU. Longer travel distance = greater lag. Why is this a problem? Well if you don't have thousands to spend on complex and elaborate setups then it is a problem. For instance, the apple tv (new and old) would need the vpn to be configured on the router, which would route all internet traffic of your network through the vpn. You could have a separate PC create the vpn connection and then proxy your atv through it to get around this. According to the support guy I spoke to you can have 6 simultaneous connections on 1 account so you could have several routers that support OpenVPN which connect to different server so as to provide different services (netflix, p2p) and have you specific devices connected to each or you can have multiple PCs or maybe multiple virtual PC running some small linux openvpn distro acting as proxy servers. Point I am trying to make is that a dns service such as UNOTelly is a much better option if you have more things happening on your network than just netflix. This article is from April 19th. Today is the 21st. My netflix is still working with unotelly albeit a bit slower to load due to all the static routes that have to be in place however it is still usable. Conclusion, there is nothing wrong with a vpn type solution just be aware of the pros and cons. I got a 3 day trial from NordVPN and I did the router setup because my main reason to use something like this would be netflix on my atv. It didn't work. I didn't have any network what so ever. Now while I am sure I could have got support, the fact is that if I had to go through schlep each time to do something different it just isn't worth it in my opinion and I am clued up IT person with many years experience. I can just imagine how a normal average man on the street would feel.
  • I have tried a range of VPN providers but currently only Nord is able to bypass Netflix Geoblocking. http://vpnranked.com has a pretty good rundown.

    It’s worth mentioning though that a few of the US servers don’t work however, but they have been pretty proactive and replacing those with others. Hopefully it continues as being able to access all that US content is amazing.
  • Yeah i knew about it and several times, i have already told that netflix still can be unblock with vpn. Even i read an article from vpnranks almost 2month before and from that time till now i am still using for unblocking netflix. Here is the article that i read: http://goo.gl/Z2ufzr

  • Anyone that is considering downloading GoT should absolutely be using a VPN to make sure they don’t get into any trouble. http://vpnranked.com has a really good rundown of the very best VPNs. But in my opinion Nord is the obvious choice because it is the only VPN to use double encryption and also bypass Netflix geoblocking.

  • My kids both have Private Internet Access at their place, but I downloaded Nord only a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I used the this youtube video to set it up because I have the attention span of a goldfish
  • Netflix started cracking down on VPN services https://vpntrends.com/can-we-still-access-netflix-using-a-vpn this month even express VPN stopped working in EUrope to unlock Netflix, you will have to look for a good alternative.
