Netflix - US VPN NEEDED

Post by Fitz » 19 Oct 2010, 10:21

Hey peops,

Just had a little wander through the info about Netflix - and it basically seems we can get it here in Australia as long as you connect to a US VPN (so the IP address matches up correctly).

Anyone know a free / cheap US VPN that they have used for similar reasons? I'd like to try the free trial of Netflix see ifs its worth while signing up all proper like :)

Free ones are all limited amount of bandwidth, or time connected.

You should be able to find a good cheap one.

I use AlwaysVPN for all my Aussies Get Ripped Off On Steam needs (AGROS... decent acronym, should make it my Steam name) .

Easy to use and they will give you a few hundred meg to trial it to see if Netflix blocks it (you have to send em an email with your username after you register I think). The only issue you will have is that they charge per gig (its not much but I bet ud rip thru it with movies).

Eep - you need to pay for bandwidth rather than a set monthly fee? Thats just harsh..might look elsewhere..

well for my purposes its fine. Predownload on aussie broadband. Unlock on US.

People steaming netflix/hulu is probably why most seem to have DL limits :)
