ushare: Problem :(

So i just set the roku up but theres no netflix to be seen :(

I used an nz credit card and a us address (well nz address but kept country to US and also the zip code to 5 digits.)

Where did i go wrong? Please help someone. I went to roku.com/link and then entered code :(


Make sure netflix works from your PC. If it does and your Roku is setup using unblock-us their is no reason it won't work on the Roku.

Netflix will be in the channel store only if the Roku is setup with a US bulling address. See this article:

http://support.unblock-us.com/customer/portal/articles/323038-setup-roku-players

Important: You must create account from the computer BEFORE starting activation of Roku device. DO NOTcreate account if Roku box asks you to create new one, it may be created incorrectly and won't show you new apps. If your device does not show US "channels" then you'll need to create new account, do "factory reset" and "link" device to that account.

A combination of both works really well. Vudu is great for the latest movies. Netflix for classics and the kids. Don't think there is a vudu app for roku though. if u find one let me know.

Netflix is good for watching older episodes or movies and is billed on a monthly basis ... Vudu has newer releases and is billed per view.
I dont have a Vudu account yet but if something comes up on it that I want to watch I will definately join it.
