    Technically yes, but more than likely no. You would probably have a much better shot at using a VPN. Residential proxies are typically not very stable. The proxy you're connecting to might be offline before you get to the end of a 30 minute show. It would also depend on the speed of the connection that's been proxied for you to connect through.

    No, netflix is clever enough to ban all VPNs. So i see if i can get datacenter ips but probablt also no so residential proxies are still the only ones left that cannot be banned.

    Well, residential proxies would work for sure like you're thinking. The only issue would be the speed/stability. Some home ISP's have connection speeds faster than some servers nowadays, for example I have a 180+ Mbps download rate on my home connection now. That's not the case for everyone though so if you have someone who only has a 20 Mbps connection and you try and proxy through it, it's going to be a bit laggy trying to load video content. There's some other factors that go into it, but the speed and stability would be the 2 things I'd be testing if I were you. Hit up some providers and ask them to test them for a couple hours and you should be able to get an idea.

    I see some sellers selling Proxies of that sort on BHW, is it not stable enough for worth the cash?
