There are another couple you may want to check out. Tunnelbear and PlaymoTV

I have gone down the same route as GeekieGeek. Signed up for Astrill 7 day trial. Works a treat. Dd-wrt addin is tops and works really well.

GeekieGeek I was thinking. Rather than have the home licence route all your devices via ddwrt thus all being tunnelled through.

Astrill gets my vote.

The little things make the biggest difference.

For those of you using HMA which I have subscribed to, which servers are you connecting to and would you mind sharing speeds? I am connecting to Calif and Singapore and getting 1MB/s speeds which is terrible considering my connection is capable of 5MB's usually without issue to Cali.

I'm using StrongVPN - seems to work well on our iPad's / iPhone's / computers.
I'm in the middle of signing on to Hulu+, so it'll be interesting to see how things work out.

Does unblock-us not suffice? Doesnt add any overhead to your connection and is really easy to use. Especially if you have a decent router. Just make the netflix domain use the unblock-us dns server and no device configuration is needed. also means any device on the network can use it.

I'm using the unotelly dns server because it is a bit cheaper per month and really we are only using netflix for which it works perfectly.

Also on vudu my nz debit card works fine.
