Hi. I'm travelling abroad and I would like to watch my Netflix instant queue from the hotel here in Switzerland.

I found two websites that unblock netflix outside the US. Which one is better?

The second one is free so I don't know if it really works. Did anyone try that?

I use Unblock us- it works great. I've never heard of the other one. They say that HideMyAss works well, too.

I noticed that maskedhost is free but it seems more more limited than unblock us (which gives access to everything that Netflix streams to the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Mexico and Brazil.

I recommend , the best I have used because it gives you both DNS and VPN.

Sky currently has first window streaming rights to all six major USA studios. Netflix has said that they intend to bid for streaming rights as they become available. In the meantime, you should consider subscribing to UnoTelly or Unblock Us.

Don't blame Netflix. Blame those in your country that netflix has to go though in order to get movies and shows streaming licenses. If they won't sell, netflix cannot buy.

Unblock-us uses DNS, I on the other hand would perfer using a US VPN. VPNs just seem more convenient for me.

I've heard that using a VPN will slow down your computer. Unblock Us doesn't, and it's very easy to set up and quite convenient to use.

Also, Unblock Us allows you to easily switch back and forth from among ten countries (USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland). I don't know if the VPN services can do that or not.

Also, Unblock Us is only $5.00 a month.

I use these guys in teh UK you can get a Uk or USA ip address. Watch out for free or cheap VPN's as they are probably Proxy.

I haven't tried but I have tried and they seemed pretty good and they are Toronto based. Now I'm using because it is DNS and VPN as well.

Here's a youtube video showing how to set up your DNS for mac and pc.

Try UnoTelly! 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.

You could just set up a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to have a US IP address so that your Outside of US Netflix account will get US content. Here's a detailed "How To" video to set up your own VPN. You won't be disappointed.

I use Smart DNS Proxy to get access Netflix USA when I'm abroad. Here you can find more details :

It was free for a long time and now I got this with a great deal. I think it's still free for trial.

The good thing is that not only American Netflix but you can also get access many USA channels from anywhere in the world. Here is their list:

Thank you!
