Use it on a apple tv and a pc.  No problems at all.  You can get a 7 day trial.

Trialed unblock-us.info. Didn't work for me on Vodafone (there are threads about why). I use a VPN solution instead. Works well.

Please use our Search page. There are LOTS of discussions on unblock-us.

The most important thing to know is WHICH ISP ARE YOU USING?

Some ISPs use transparent proxies and these will not work with unblock-us on a browser, but may work on devices (such as players) because these devices don't use the same ports as the browser and the proxy won't interfere.

In other words: try before you buy. And use the search.

You could still do it, however, you need Vodafone to move you to a different static IP block.

Which block you may ask? I don't know.  They don't know.  You just have to trial-error it.

Yeah I know, I wanted a VPN anyway. I use the Astril DD-WRT solution and it works well so never bothered.

Hi! I am using Unotelly dns service to watch my favorite programs on netflix. I use it on my pc,ps3 and iPad and its working great. It has high stream speed and no bugs. About Unblockus, I've never tried their service but I 'll stay with Unotelly cause I'm satisfied with them.

Yeah I am using this as well - only the trial version though (which gives you all three channel packages).

I might try US-Unblock after the trial to compare the two.

With Unotelly are you using the DNS address from the Sydney cluster or the East Coast of the USA.

I first of all tried the Sydney cluster as obviously I got a better Internet Speedtest to Sydney, but I found UnoTelly almost unusable via that cluster. It is much better using the USA West Coast clusters.

How are you using it on your iPad? I have had a hit and miss experience when loading their DNS address in an iPhone/Ipad. Most of the time when I do it says it cannot connect to the internet.

Also what channels are you watching on the iPad as most USA sites can detect that you are on an iPad and require you to download an app - which of course is only available from the USA iTunes store. Perhaps you have a USA iTunes account?

Hi, I have been using it for a few months, on my Windows Media Centre, my PS3 and my iPhone, and it works great.  I have the DNS of my network changed rather than just each device, and no adverse effects.

Highly recommended. Plus you can use Hulu, BBC, Channel4 (i.e. UK services as well as US).

I use unblock-us on my ps3 for netflix.

Runs sweet 90% of the time, sometimes it just does not want to buffer some tv episodes.
We fixed this by pausing the start of every show for about a minute before playing again.

Could be a coincidence but works perfectly after doing that and perfectly sometimes when we dont do that.

The Mrs is addicted to netflix, we are thinking of getting rid of sky tv as we only use it to record the news.

(Im on Telstraclear Cable)
