Ok, so this is interesting.
I used Netflix and selected "USA Test" and picked The Office US version which is only on the US Netflix.
It worked. Perhaps Getflix have perfected a workaround for the US market.
Where i struggled originally yesterday and what prompted me to write yesterday, I wanted to watch the new Avengers movie, age of ultron. Only available to view in Australia, Canada and the Netherlands. It was choosing these regions that my viewing experience failed...
Perhaps Getflix and others need other country workarounds like they have done with the USA?
Still working this evening?
So still keeping Getflix on USA "Test" region this evening through my Apple TV 3, i get "Netflix is currently unavailable, please try again later".
Ive even tried USA "East 2" and although i can access Netflix, in trying to watch some of the kids content, i get the 139 error message
For me accessing the USA is nice, but isn't the be all and end all - even though i can't get the USA now, i would also like to go to any of the countries to get some of the more unusual content.
