And just to confirm I’ve purchased it, had an existing account, applied the code I was given and my subscription expires in 10,958 days.

I’m currently a DNS4me user but been having Rugbypass issues and looking at trying something else. Although I’m also using Kayosports without issue...

I see some reddit posts from late last year saying it doesn't work anymore?

Does anyone have an account that can comment on their service?

I think you’ll find there are plenty of GZ users of Getflix that are very happy with it. I’m very happy and a longtime user of DNS4me but recent issues with Rugbypass / DNS4me means I’d like an alternative and at about $77 for a lifetime sub...it’s worth it.

I'm once bitten with Getflix's 'lifetime' membership, having purchased this a few years back.

 

Their conventional approach to bypassing Netflix regions stopped working (like many others), so they developed an alternative method... and declined to provide to those of us with that lifetime membership. To get that we'd have to pay again.

 

(There's a thread on this in the private forum.)

 

I haven't checked to see whether this deal provides for the new Netflix bypass - but even if it  does I'd be careful as they could easily pull the same stunt again.

 

That said, it does what it says on the tin, allowing us easy access to BBC at least; I'd just have liked to have retained access to Netflix...

Use 'SPRING15' to get further 15% off, worked for me.

I once purchased a 'lifetime' online subscription.  It was fine for a year, but then said they ran out of money and my lifetime subscription was cancelled.

I have used this for a few years, same type of deal as you, happy with it, great to watch oversea's tv channels, my friends are always intrigued that I can watch oversea's things.

 

 

 

Note-> that their NZ VPN no longer works due to March 15 incident, AU works fine if needed though.

 

 

 

You can only access from one ip address at a time and get the phone app is good to auto update ip address if yours is dynamic, plus change regions with it as well.

I got the lifetime sub 4 or 5 years ago and it's been fine for us. 

 

Have the occasional issue where the dashboard thinks that the device isn't using the correct dns servers but that's only once in a blue moon.

Whilst it's good value, I don't think that companies who offer these have thought them through properly. 

 

I would suggest against it, as it's unlikely to be a true lifetime thing once the company runs out of ongoing revenues. 

 

It's not expensive at full price anyways. Ensures the ongoing likelihood they are there when you want them in the future. 

 

If it were a discounted one year rate, that would be something different.

Despite the specific mention of Netflix on both the deal's site (link in OP) and Getflix's own site, it is not included in the list of 'supported channels' on the relevant page: https://www.getflix.com.au/channels/overview

 

I'd be interested to know if anyone who takes up this deal can access o/s Netflix catalogues.

 

I also note the deal states 'minor updates included', which would suggest my concern raised earlier (and what they did to others such as myself with 'lifetime' subs) is probably valid - ie, if they need to introduce a change that is anything but 'minor' to restore access to any services lifetime subscribers under this deal will not get access to it.

I didn't think the Netflix region changing had been working with Getflix for years so I haven't tried (even though I'm on a normal plan)

AFAIK only US Netflix is available but I don't tend to use it because I find it slow.
