USA Netflix from other countries

Has anyone used UnoTelly to access USA Netflix from other countries? How did it work out? Any issues I should be away of?

Not familiar with that service, but Unblock Us works brilliantly and it's only $5/month.

Unblock Us is nice because you don't need a VPN-capable router to use it. You just enter the DNS address directly into your Apple TV.

If you don't have an Apple TV, then any VPN service will work. I use Hide My Ass VPN on my iPad to watch Netflix USA and then Airplay it to my Apple TV. Works fine.

Looks like UnoTelly might be a better value at $4/month. Try it out for free and see how well it works.

Another unlock US user, works great for my use. NFL, MLB, Hulu and Netflix are all I tried thus far.

I'm in the same boat. I just moved to South Korea and want to watch Netflix, Hulu, ABC, CBS, etc without slowing down my Internet. Is unblock us for me?

Thanks for this. I do not watch ESPN, NBA etc.. only Netflix. I am giving UnoTelly a try and so far am impressed. I have it set up on my desktop, laptop, iPad and PS3. It was very easy to setup. Once the trial runs out I may try Unblock Us.

UnoTelly is AWESOME!

Try UnoTelly if you are looking for a great solution! You can view content in over 10 countries including Netflix. Simple to set up and use, with a quickswitch to other regions. Couldn't be easier. You get a free 8 day trial and all you need is an email and a first name to get it for you newcomers. I use it and haven't looked back!

I use unblock us. Honestly USA Netflix is better, but the novelty quickly wears off and then you begin to wonder why you're paying a monthly fee for Netflix.

Using Unblockus, I find I switch between American, Canadian and British Netflix more than I thought I would. Both CAN & UK Netflix get certain theatrical films more quickly than US Netflix, and UK gets the new Breaking Bad episodes right after its shown on US TV on Sunday. US Netflix has more TV shows overall but UK has many British shows that don't make it over here.
