You can use it on any netflix devices if you are on the wi-fi, you won't be able to use US version on the fly, if you are on network data streaming you will get Canadian version of it.

We've been using this for over an year and we just cancelled cable as its useless, the unblockus service also allow you to view BBC UK iplayer, so you can watch Dr. Who, Downton Abbey etc after it has just aired.

If you don't require netflix there is a free service available...that operates just like unblock-us.

http://tunlr.net/

actually anyone could potentially set this up...so long as you have a proxy server down in the US and a DNS server to route the traffic for these geoblocked media sites to your proxy server.

We can access US Netflix very easily and for free.

The link below is a quick good read with direct download.

HotSpot shield is crap, all your bandwidth goes through it so you'll lose a significant amount of download speed plus they can potentially watch all your traffic.

Your best bet is to use different DNS settings, then all your traffic will not go through them and that means no watching you do your banking and what not. Tunlr works, but I've heard they are no longer supporting Netflix, and even when they did their service went up and down quite a bit.

This guy here does a good job going over all the options and what's best.

I've been going with Unblock-us a while now and have had 0 issues.

If it's as easy as changing DNS, why not just use Google's dns (8.8.8.8) which should be in the US right? I thought all these services checked the originating IP and where the subnet is owned ... which is why you need a proxy to put a fronting IP in front of it. Anyway, I'll check out the options once I run out of crap to watch on the Canadian version

^^scotch,

These guys use advanced level networking to dynamically modify packet header info to make it appear as it is coming from within the geo-permitted network. It is very cool and works very well.

AFAIK they do use google's primary DNS for all non-media traffic (they only modify packets related to streaming video on a ACL basis)

Google's DNS settings do not work for this. I'm assuming they have so many servers that it automatically uses local ones, so if you're in Canada it's going through a Canadian DNS or at least passing on your country. I had been using 8.8.8.8 as my DNS for a couple years before switching it to Unblock-Us.

Unfortunately it's not that easy

I know ... that's why I said it isn't as easy as just changing to a US based DNS

I looked it up and as prop said, they actually modify the TCP traffic to "fake" US based origin when you hit a resource they handle. So if a new service comes along, this won't automagically work until the service gets on board and adds it to the list of supported services.

Anyway, it does seem MUCH better that a VPN (which is what HotSpot shield is) as it does not impact your actual bandwidth.

The only issue is that since all the streaming services use some sort of CDN (Akamai usually) which is distributed, you will end up getting to a US based CDN rather than a closer one, so the net path isn't as efficient. Still obviously plenty of bandwidth for Netflix and the like. Will try this out for sure ... and UnoTelly seems like a good alternative as well, and then there is proxydns.co which so far is FREE!

No worries, your wording made it sound otherwise though.

FYI there are DNS # all over youtube that you can change on Android phones and PS3 and have access to US Netflix with out having to purchase or download a thing.

And for the people that say US Netflix is not as good as Canadian Netflix are very mistaken.

Something like 12000+ shows vs 3500

Huh? Who has ever said that Canadian Netflix was BETTER than the US one? Everyone know's that's not true.
