Does any VPN work with Netflix?

I would like to use my PS3 to watch movies, or have it connect to a VPN and watch movies through that, but it doesn't seem to be possible? I've tried some of the VPNs in this forum (not all), and they work with Hulu but not with Netflix. I've also tried the NordVPN service, which claims to be "compatible" with Netflix, and it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?
What I'd like to do is connect to my PS3 via VPN so that I can watch movies from my PS3 at home on the TV, as well as watch movies on the go with my PSP, so that I don't have to buy an extra USB and another Blu-Ray drive for just watching movies on the go. The problem is that a lot of VPNs require you to download their client to your computer and then run it from there to access the VPN server, which is kind of cumbersome. If I could just watch movies from my PS3 with a VPN connection directly, without having to download anything, then I would prefer that.
If anyone could tell me how to do that, I would greatly appreciate it. Edit: I have a Netgear N600 wireless router (which I have upgraded to DD-WRT), and a Netgear DG834G wireless card in my PS3. I can already connect to the router, and download torrents from the router.
Re: Does any VPN work with Netflix? You can use any VPN service you want. I have a few on my computer. You should be able to use a Windows or Linux VPN service.
The process is pretty simple, once you get it configured. I'm going to assume you're using DD-WRT.
How do I change my Netflix country?
Netflix is the world's largest streaming service and a great way to catch up on your favourite shows. And it's a great way to support independent filmmakers, too. But there are some downsides to Netflix's subscription model. One is that you can only use it in one country. It might not seem like a big deal, but let's say you like to watch old movies from back in the day. You have a few options. You can pay for a whole bunch of subscriptions and use them across different countries, which will be a headache. Or you could live with only watching in one place, which is kind of a drag. But thanks to a new update you don't have to suffer anymore.
How to change your Netflix country. So you have your Netflix subscription, you go to your settings and you get the usual message about logging in. If you have your phone or tablet, you can follow these steps using your device: Open the Netflix app. Scroll to the bottom of the home page, tap More and then select Account Tap Sign in to account. When it prompts you to select your country, choose a different one. You'll now have access to your content in your chosen country. Note: This will work if you have a US or UK Netflix account. If you want to use your Canadian or Australian account, you'll need to first set up an account in your home country. To do that, scroll down to the bottom of the Netflix website and select Sign up.
If you're using an Android phone, you can find your current region by going into your phone's Settings> Language & input>Region & language. It's worth noting that this might reset the content in your Netflix account. If you have a PC, go to your PC's Control Panel (in Windows) or System Preferences (in OSX). Scroll down to Network and Network Proxy Settings. Click Advanced Settings and check the box next to Manual proxy configuration. This will allow you to bypass Netflix's automatic internet filtering.
How to watch Netflix in another country. Here's where things get interesting.
Which VPN country is best for Netflix?
Note: If you have already found a VPN for Netflix and you're happy with it, please vote for it in the NordVPN reviews section. The VPN I mentioned above are not only good for Netflix but they are great for everything else too! Thanks for your post. I just signed up with NordVPN. I'll let you know if I notice anything weird going on with my internet traffic, and I'll let you know if I get Netflix working!
I'm having a different problem. I live in Canada and I can't get VPN from Nord VPN. I'm using the NordVPN app on my phone and I keep getting a message saying that it's been disabled. Do you know why this is happening?
Hi! I recently purchased a VPN from NordVPN and downloaded the Android app, but I had to cancel it and don't know how to download the one I have. Is there anyway to download the VPN I have? Thank you! I just purchased the VPN from NordVPN to use when I'm in China, but for some reason, I can't seem to connect to Netflix. If I open the VPN connection, then the connection is successfully established. But, once I'm connected, I still see Netflix's warning that it isn't available in my country. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Has Netflix blocked VPN?
Is Netflix blocking the VPN's IP and traffic? I was with a VPN provider of choice, and was happy with everything. After watching a few titles on Netflix, I noticed that all the movies were playing from the "U.S." instead of the country I was using my VPN from. I tried watching a different movie, no problem, but when I went to watch a different movie later it was the same issue. The other question is whether or not my ISP is spying on the internet activity and if that can be bypassed with a VPN. Is it common practice for Netflix to block VPN?
Re: Netflix blocking VPN? I've been having this exact problem for the last month or so. I was using ExpressVPN, and Netflix said they were watching a list of locations and blocked the connection. When I got into the site, the US location was listed as the default. I tried a couple of other VPNs and still got blocked. Then I switched back to ExpressVPN and it works as it should. It does appear as if Netflix is not following the location indicator in the browser, or at least that is the only difference that I have seen. It is not the first time I have dealt with this, and I think I am going to find another service to watch movies.
As far as I am concerned, anyone who has access to my traffic should not have access to content (if it's the type of content you are talking about). To some degree, you will always have the ISP tracking what you are doing online, and even some of the VPNs may, by default. What do they see? Maybe a general idea, but I cannot say without looking. If they do see it, well, then don't use it!
If Netflix are tracking your activity over multiple devices then a simple solution is to have all your devices logged onto your home PC during the time that you are watching Netflix, just add all your devices to your account and allow automatic log in. After this has happened you need to stop logging in. From this point on your activities are tracked and then the information is passed to Netflix for their viewing and recommendation algorithm to match it against its records and then recommend your viewing habits.
