Anyone else got a Turbobeacon yet? Mine arrived this week and am using it with my Apple TV 4 but having a few teething issues which their support are looking into. About time to have a solution to access US Netflix from UK when DNS solutions no longer work.

Had to google what this even was - sounds very interesting. Don't really care about Netflix, but Hulu or NBC access could convince me.

Any update since last week?

Looks good, not heard of it before. Getting access to NBC sports would be a nice addition. Just need to find a way to sort the payment as it obviously only accepts US methods.

Are you accessing the apps through Apple TV?

I used PayPal to pay. You can use VISA or MasterCard as well.

Yes Im accessing US Apps through apple tv.

Id recommend this forum as well: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=93.0

You might find good deals of XFinity and DirectTV accounts ;)

I found a way to use the Turbo Beacon WIFI Network and still hardwire the Network to your other devices like your Apple TV, Roku, etc through Ethernet. You can go get a Netgear Trek, set it up (including using USA) as your country, connect the Netgear Trek to the Turbo Beacon WIFI Network, then hard wire the Trek to your Apple TV 4 orRoku. Works PERFECTLY. And better streaming.

You set the Trek button on the side to wireless, you DO NOT connect it to the router. You then go to your computer, tablet, etc enter the Password for the Trek Network that's written on the device it then goes into a screen listing the available wifi Networks, choose the Turbo Beacon Wifi Network enter the Password for it, click save and then I got options to set it up with an e-mail address and choosing US as my country (I'm in Canada). That's it.....and the other end of the device has two LAN ports which you plug into your Apple TV, Roku, etc.
