Made the switch from Unlock-us to Getflix thanks to this deal. Worked well, now have 10972 days remaining on the sub laughing

Performance is the same as with Unblock-us, haven't put the included VPN to the test yet but will be worth a try (especially with some of the random locations they have which aren't included with a lot of providers - Angola, Brazil, Bolivia, Greece, Mozambique, Panama, Saudi Arabia, even Sudan! to name a few)

Does anyone think it's weird that Netflix is not mentioned anywhere on the site as a supported service?

Was thinking the same thing before I signed up. Maybe a S&D was issued? It's mentioned extensively when you login though.

Thank, signed up last night. I am a unotelly user but worth trying.

Getflix vs Unotelly?

I quite like the Unotelly IOS app for changing regions and updating IP address.

I still can't decide.  I'm hesitant because at the moment I can't use a DNS service without DDNS because I'm with Flip (changes ip every 4-5 minutes).  But I can't get the DDNS to work consistently.  The support has been very good.  They even remote accessed my laptop to set it up for me, but it is not reliable.  The vpn works great for US but was very poor for UK (streaming iplayer) and I got better speeds with the free hola app, which I would prefer not to use.

I'm changing isp to one that offers a fixed ip, so the problem should be resolved.  Would like to know the vpn was up to speed (I think it's still beta).

Maybe I'm being too picky.

Hmmmm.....

Netflix is mentioned. Getflix has a whole page on it:
http://www.getflix.com.au/channels/netflix

They also say how Netflix is handled - you connect to Getflix's US servers rather than directly to Netflix.

P.S. But it is strange that it is not prominently listed on the home page or in the channels.

Looks like it ends tomorrow (says 1 day), so I bit the bullet and signed up.

Shame it's ending before I've been able to get the trial to work, so just going to have to give it a miss
