Im using Netflix but I access the US content more as they have a better selection of shows, the UK version is way behind in comparison.



How do you access the US version from here? Even with a VPN, do you need a US credit card or address or can you use your UK log-in?

Netflix are really on the ball with Breaking Bad atm. They're adding Season 5 part 1 in a few days which is quite amazing for a streaming website considering that it's not long aired in the States. The TV shows on Netflix are great and it seems they are updating films a lot more frequently. I've never had problems with Netflix streaming (no problems which havent been affected by my own connection) and the picture quality is always perfect. Lovefilm on the hother hand, was constantly buffering and crashing. I had nothing but problems.

I'm still not seeing a lot of films going on. The new viewing format I think makes that a little bit more obvious too I think?

I use the Ps3 to stream us netflix and have found that a website called instantwatcher is really useful to see exactly what is available, as there are limited choices from the ps3 menu.

Here's the link:

US Netflix is significantly better than the UK sadly.

I'm trying out Netfix at the moment and although great for Breaking Bad, the choice of films is poor. If they offered a postal service as well I'd consider switching from Love Film (because of buffering problems.)

Started a free trial on this recently and i have to say i'm impressed. It's been great to catch up on a lot of back catalogue stuff. I still get all the new releases i want on Blu but Netflix is very handy and the streaming quality is excellent.

A VPN of some sort - I use tunnelbear. Your UK login works on the US site so you don't need to reregister - you just need to make the site think you're in the US.

There are also browser add-ons called Hola and Mediahint, both of which have the same effect (I use Firefox, so I don't know about other browsers). Of course, they aren't any use if you only use a Netflix app.

Are there any streaming limits using that type of thing? (I can't check with Firefox specifically as the update about a year ago means it crashes my PC every time I use it, no idea why!)

Not that I know of: it is simply a browser extension rather than an additional programme like Tunnelbear (assuming that still is), so I expect it only depends on your own broadband package.

Here are their websites:
http://hola.org/
https://mediahint.com/

Full disclosure: I haven't actually used them yet to watch anything (I can confirm that Hola for one definitely lets you log into to the US site though). I've read good things about them though, mainly on social media.

I installed the iPad Tunnelbear app last night and was pretty impressed. I didn't have time to watch anything on Netflix (one of these days...) but I did browse the US selection on the Netflix app.

The ease of use, the fact that you can get an extra 1GB on the data limit each month (i.e. giving you 1.5GB in total) just by tweeting Tunnelbear, and that it seems to be just 1.99 a month if you need more, all mean I'll be making more use of Tunnelbear very soon.

It's such a ball-ache to hook the laptop (to use the browser add-ons mentioned yesterday) up to the TV when the tablet can be booted up and connected to the TV in less than a minute.

So I just recently ventured into this after having used Lovefilm for years with just discs. I have heard nothing good about their streaming service.

Anyway obviously there are big problems with the selection on Netflix. I have zero interest in TV shows so searching for specific director names was a bit depressing. It all works smoothly and they do have things that I want to see. But there are issues with them messing up the aspect ratio on films too, from the wrong format to actually squaring off the sides into academy ratio for no apparent reason on films that not old enough to be like that. The trial will last a few weeks yet but I am not sure how happy overall I will be after that period. (I've no devices that would get me into the US store)

Anyone using twitter might find @NewOnNetflixUK useful. Alerts to new additions and provides dates of when stuff will be taken off.

They do provide a lot of updates, though...
