I was on my US account when i logged in both times. Previously, I was blocked from even having access to my account. Now it had no problems. From what I saw, my playlist was exactly the same as before.

I also didnt notice any original language german or french shows with the exception of Marsailles with Gerard Depardieu. The show is a Netflix show so I assume its not exclusive to Europe. (it had English subtitles)
I do log in with my US account in CH without a problem but then I have access to CH content. Best thing is to search a movie here that is only available in the US Netflix. Then try to see if you can still watch it in CH or not. If yes, then may be a miracle has happened!

Re: Best VPN/Proxy/DNS for watching Netflix USA?

I use https://www.smartydns.com/ (note there is a "y" in there)

I set the DNS manually on the Smart telly and we get USA Netflix.
We also get the UK BBC iPlayer, C4, ITV etc

On our tablets etc we use the SmartyDNS app = still works.

Re: Best VPN/Proxy/DNS for watching Netflix USA?

I use strongvpn which works for US netflix (which have different titles available than CH) and hulu. Hulu cut me off a few years ago because of my vpn but I sent them an email to ask for an exception which they miraculously gave me. I hope this public post does not jinx that as I am really into the Handmaid's Tale.

The vpn service is not free, but they have good customer service.

Re: Best VPN/Proxy/DNS for watching Netflix USA?

Revising this as the VPN services are constantly changing.

Anyone have recent successful experience with a VPN that works for foreign Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and BBC iPlayer?

Thanks!

We're using https://nordvpn.com - works fine with Netflix & iPlayer. Haven't tried the others...

I use ExpressVPN for Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney+ (all in USA). Works fine.

I think in the last year, we had to change VPN location one time because Hulu blocked. But a quick question to the live chat and they provided a location that was fine (took less than 5 minutes). Now the original location is back to working for all stream services mentioned above. Other than that, all's good.

As a bonus, you can switch off the VPN and get a lot of shows/movies on Netflix that are carried in CH but not in the US.

We use Surfshark and can confirm it works on US Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and BBC iPlayer (and DaveUK TV). It was cheaper than the other alternatives and works well! (I think I paid something like $70 for 3 years? They're now doing a special for <$48 for 2 years!) Would recommend.

I use Nordvpn.... it works for a while then kicks me out mid-episode.
So frustrating. I guess they are on top of all VPN providers.

.... anyone know where I can get season 7 & 8 of homeland from a Swiss IP?

You might have to try some specific servers although for example only certain UK server ranges work for BBC I Player but once you connect to them you're fine. Not tried it yet for Netflix.

Re: Best VPN/Proxy/DNS for watching Netflix USA?

Do you all watch Netflix in the computer, installed VPN in your router, do you connect to a TV-set via cable, or what?
