There are so many - can anyone assist me in sorting the wheat from the chaff?!

Witopia has worked for me very well for Netflix to San Francisco.

Not used it much to UK as extra jumps slows live streaming too much. But was ok for the ofine BBC iPlayer function last year.

I have used Astril which is Australian owned for many years. It has a huge number of servers you can choose from all around the world.
I think it runs at just under NZ$100 for a full year.
Works great with torrent as well.
Regards,
John.

I've used unotelly for some time now, with no problems at all.

Slingshot and Orcon both have Global Mode as well, which does the trick.

Do you have to use VPN?

Try this out http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=151&topicid=150653

Haven't had any problems so far with UK access.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I use unblock-us but it is not a VPN.  Works well with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Roku.

Try AdFreetime i used it for over a year until i switched to MynxNet with it's Global mode.

you can set it to UK , US and a few other countries, for me was I only set it to the US for Netflix, for UK region you should be able to get BBC iPlayer (never tried it).

$2.* something a month cool .

... and it has simple interface/apps (eg one click to change to any of the Netflix countries) + a really good support desk if it's needed. USD4.99/month.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Slightly OT but how is that service running? I would have thought thousands of potential new customers would have brought it to its knees.

I've used Astrill, PIA, and StrongVPN in the past. All are excellent choices.

I'm happy with Getflix, has a couple of NZ based DNS servers. Also some VPN functionality but only used DNS.
Has an app etc for changing regions.

+1 use a DNS service and not a VPN (VPNs are a lot slower/harder to configure).

I've used
DNS4ME
Unotelly
Unblockus

Others I haven't used
Getflix

I'm currently using DNS4ME (cheapest I've found), but all provided basically the same service/quality.  And all seem to have apps for smartphones to allow you to quickly switch netflix regions etc (thats very handy I find).

I haven't noticed any issues but then I don't use it that much.

"?VPN harder to configure"

Not with my htpc

Click on witopia shortcut, it creates vpn to LA (my default one), then click on w8.1 netflix, watch movies.
