    Default VPN help?

    I want to be able to watch US Netflix content outside of the US and I've heard this may be possible using a VPN. I tried installing Hotspot Shield and that one didn't work, not for Netflix anyway. So, I was wondering if anyone here knows of a free VPN service that does work for Netflix? It doesn't absolutely have to be free, but it does absolutely have to work for Netflix so please only suggest something if you're certain. Thanks!

    I'm in Canada and I just use the Mediahint extension for Chrome. Download it and activate it when you log into Netflix and you gain access to American content. Want a return to normal? Settings-Extension-Mediahint Off.

    This is for Arrested Development, I hope.

    Tor is something you can use which will help you out here, and it will make you virtually completely anonymous if you care about that. It is not an VPN per se, but for what you want to do, it basically works the same.
    https://www.torproject.org/

    CyberGhost is an okay free VPN, and "okay" is the best you can hope for when you do not want to pay for an VPN. CyberGhost will let you choose which server you want to go through, so in your case you would want to go through a US server in order to watch Netflix. You can pay for CyberGhost or other VPNs which is definitely a better product, not to mention faster.

    You also have many web based proxies you can use as you don't actually have to use an VPN for this task.

    The problem with Tor is that it is slow and you cannot be sure of where the end-server is placed. Unless it is in the United States, he will not be able to watch Netflix video that would only be available in the US.

    CyberGhost is not something that I have tried. Using a proxy server would work. The issue here is to find one that works well. You would then have to make sure that it is located in the US.

    Well, that was easy. Having access to both US and British Netflix is going to be amazing. Really appreciate the excellent advice. Now just need to get myself a decent internet connection and I'll be all set.

    It's been on my list for years so I'm sure I'll get around to it one of these days.

    Richard Ricardo Britsman. The new season of Arrested Development comes out on US Netflix in 6 days. By then you must have watched the other 3 seasons.

    Good luck to you.

    I watched the original 3 seasons again just recently and it didn't take me long. You can do it, Richard!

    Oh, I'm sure I could manage that, the only problem is my internet access at the moment.
