Now that global mode is gone, is there any way that I can set up my network so all Netflix traffic routes through an american VPN or something?
It would be nice if all of our devices connected to our wifi didnt need to be manually setup for US streaming. However would still like to geo-locate to NZ for all other sites.
Our router is a Mikrotik Routerboard if that helps - I feel like it should be advanced enough to be up for the job!
Thanks for the help

I think you would be better off using an unblock service like unblock us. Rather than a VPN that way you have access to all regions of Netflix and it can be set at router level.

I just signed up for trial of dns4me to get access to netflix USA, Worked a treat, I have a lot more movies available than the NZ version now. I will be signing up to dns4me once trial finished.
