Highly recommended NETFLIX+VPN, more movies and series than you can watch for $14/month

    I have bin thinking of using this for some years now but never went to action before.
    So NETFLIX is a US movie/series online streaming service.
    Its required that you arrive from a US IP, thats why you need vpn.

    A short version of my setup.

    Netgear WNDR3700 v2 reflashed with DD-WRT firmware "direct PPTP hookup in router".
    StrongVPN PPTP Lite service for $6/month
    Netflix streaming subscription $7.9/month

    My now compatible Netflix, hulu, crackle, abc, etc.. at home are:
    PC/Mac, iPhone, Boxee Box & Playstation 3.
    "now i just want a roku or apple tv :)".

    So all my traffic is going true my DD-WRT router that has the PPTP connection setup to StrongVPN service in US.
    Like vpn ip, user, password.

    So this is not for just netflix, there is so much content locked/blocked by your ip geo location if your not from US.
    Some streaming services are free on new tv-episodes and some have premium services to watch new and old eps.

    I can now enjoy streaming pretty much any series and movie in HD.
    Sure it will not replace my all my regular torrent/ftp habits but now its in the right direction!

    You might have to take in to mind where you are located and how your isp is peering its connection to US to select the best VPN location for you.
    The VPN services often provide speed test services to the locations so you can see what your pipe can do to that location.
    The speed test's might be single connection mode and torrent is multi and can therefore have ability to have higher speed.
    For me a VPN in NewYork is the closest over the Atlantic ocean.

    If you like to use vpn service like strongvpn i would gladly send ref mail. Otherwise you know how to find it on google :) och just add .com
    There is alot of other vpn services, i have just tested this but it works fine for me.

    Any one have other tips of good streamings sites and vpn in US?

    No need for a VPN in the UK. Netflix is roughly $10 per month and it's a great deal IMO.

    Netflix is only £5.99 here in England but I dont think we get anywhere near as much content as the US version.. I run it on a Roku which is cool but doesnt support lovefilm which is a similar service at the same price with a load of extra movies and shows.....Everyone over here runs Sky satellite but I live next door to a forest and get a shitty signal

    Yup, I also use Netflix through Roku. However, my mate has Lovefilm and he lives in the same apartment. So I just use Lovefilm. The range of "recently added movies" are much more. Lovefilm over Netflix anyday.

    Yeah Lovefilm looks more like it.. They reckon it should be available on Roku soon..Hope so,the western digital box that runs lovefilm is an ugly piece of crap..hence I bought the roku !

    If I use a VPN with my UK netflix account will I be able to get the content that's on the US one?

    I use http://unblock-us.com/ with my netflix UK account to unlock all the US content through my PS3
    Also have lovefilm but rarely anything worth watching on there, netflix has way more films, better streaming quality and customer support is top notch.

    Oh so UK has it also, i did not know. Would be much better/fast for me to use UK VPN and Netflix, but its a bummer they dont have the same content?

    We have lovefilm in my country also and they say they have 20k titles, but im not sure about there streaming agreement, "if you have the 4 movies/month postal version you get 1 streaming a week, sounds expensive and limited".


    Boxee Box, Ruku, Any android mediacenter device can pretty much have netflix, but look so it has good enough CPU.

    Yes I'm not too sure about the same content either. You'd think that they would have the same content, guess not.

    I've been using Unotelly with Netflix on Apple TV on 4MB DSL line and Netgear wifi router. The combination of Unotelly with the US iStore account works in nearly every country.
