Hi all,

 

We have been happily using Unblock US for the past couple of years with access to Netflix US, Hulu, HBO, BBC iPlayer but have recently been blocked by Netflix and Unblock US just can't offer a solution (I ave been through their excellent help desk a few times). Currently watching via the UK but Netflix UK just doesn't have the content my home users are demanding.

 

I have heard that Express VPN still allows Netflix US to be watched from NZ, does anyone use Express VPN or have recommendations on alternate solutions to Unblock US? The Happy Wife factor means cost isn't an issue....

 

Cheers

Bumping this as i'm also in the same boot. I've so far tried UnblockUS (which used to work great), Getflix and Unlocator. None of them are working now.

 

Please help!

I've got a passing interest in this too - its been interesting to watch this war unfold and its looking like Netflix is coming out of this victorious - they have got their way and few have been able to beat the Netflix IT department who have closed down all the loopholes and back doors.  I suspect any suggestions being made in this thread will only work for a limited time and Netflix tightens its deathgrip...

 

As an aside, would Getflix have to change its business name, and you now cant actually Get Netflix....?





I don't want no sugar in it - thank you very much

There are current discussions behind closed doors in a private thread - just PM me if you're wanting access.

 

Since I get many PM's on here I'll only accept somebody that:

 

1) Has been a user for over a month.
2) Has a post count of at-least 10.
3) Has introduced themselves to the wider community in the Welcome thread.

 

If you don't match the above then you won't get a reply - have had so many PM's from people who just created a new account to get access to it. Please don't discuss any working options out in the public as this makes it harder for these companies. You'll note things are very hush hush on the internet now regarding this subject with little or no information.

That's great for all you high posters but us smelly lurkers won't get far that way so I'll post something hopefully helpful but without saying too much :)

 

Most DNS unblockers have given up but there are still a few working. It's looking like DNS unblockers might be a deadend longterm though. That really leaves you with one option which should be fairly obvious. Figuring out which one isn't hard but you might need to sharpen your googlefu to track down a good one.

To be perfectly honest I have been accepting some Lurkers in the thread if I've seen them on the forums recently. It is more to prevent people from sending me a DM just after creating a new user.
