How to Watch Netflix (or any other US based service) Abroad, Watch Netflix Outside the USA – Paid Service

My 2 Cents:  Now I have been trying to get Netflix to work on the different devices that I have (iPad / AppleTV2 / XBOX360 / XOOM) and using the my previous suggestion solves the problem on a desktop using a service called hotspot shield.  Now this allowed you to watch nexflix using a PC but did not help with any of my other devices.

Now I came across a service that I have been using it for the past 3 months and it has been working perfectly.  Unlike other solutions like VPN & Proxies (which do not work on all devices), they also put a strain on your network (bandwidth).  With this DNS solution there are no bandwidth issues, as i can tell, and your IP address stays the same, so all traffic is routed though the quickest path.

Check it out…totally worth the $5 monthly charge for such simple and effective service.

    Good read. I cant speak to the functionality of Unblockus but the use of vpn and proxies to watch Netflix in Jamaica is very popular. I have been watching Netflix in Jamaica from April of this year, first using a proxy then now on VPN. The good thing about the vpn is that your ISP cant block it and you can actually configure some routers to connect to the vpn for you, this means that everything you connect to the router can have the US ip address. Be warned, the router setup thing requires considerable technical knowledge, but not having to put in configuration settings to every device is well worth it to me. I stopped using a proxy because it didnt work for all sites, different services use varying methods of detecting your location and the proxy fell short where the vpn solution didnt.

    Yes, I must agree with the comment above. VPN should be more reliable. I found this web page VPN for US ( , followed their instructions and it’s working since.
