Found 7th Feb 2012
Hey, so far, I undestand that I need to get hidemyass or vpn to hipe my IP and then sign up for netflix US.

But what I dont understand, is the US netflix will ask for my credit card, wont they keep charging me ? and how do I get the US netflix icon on my UK PS3.

I know its 5.99 for the netflix UK and around 5.00 for the Hidemyass program.

Do I just sign up for the 1 week US free trial then cancel this, but if I do this wont it just cancel the actual account and not allow me to view US content.

Hope this makes sense, thanks guys and gals

Found this not sure if it works or not though:

This is very easy to do and it's not illegal.
When i first heard that Netflix was coming to the 360 in the UK i was quite excited. When it actually arrived it was a bit of a disappointment. There wasn't much on there that i wanted to see.

All you have to do is change the DNS settings in your network settings.
Primary DNS: 208.122.23.22
Secondary DNS: 208.122.23.23

When you apply the settings, you'll lose connection with Xbox Live. (Not sure what happens on PS3)
You'll have to restart your console, sign back in and fire up Netflix.

That's it.

To watch UK content again just change the DNS back to automatic.

I told my brother about this and he rang Netflix to ask if they were aware i was possible. They told him that they were aware of it and it didn't bother them at all.

What gets me, is why don't they just give us all the same content in the first place if they're not bothered. Maybe they intend on putting a stop to it.
My advice....... do it now and enjoy it while it works!

Yes, but live in cardiff, lived on vancouver island for 4 year, very nice, and most films now are filmed in vancouver. My cousin is a producer of somesort for smallville in vancouver. Make sure you go to china town, its the biggest outside of china. Just be careful at night.

Thanks guys for your help, been searching and you can do this on your android phone as well.
Thanks jarica, worked a treat!
Jarica, you legend. I've not gotten around to looking at how to get the US Netflix yet and I was under the impression it was more grief than that! Suddenly, I'm happy to pay my £5.99 a month

Are you trying to browse online or on the PS3 widget ?
If you are on a laptop or PC I think you need to buy hidemyass or VPN so it hides your routers IP. but I could be wrong. I think this is for the PS3 only. have you tried turning the router off and on and the PS3 as well.

Also one last question, do I have to put the DNS in the router, or just the PS3 ?
yesss will have a go later at this
So changing the DNS...will this affect other laptops in my house?
Strange how there allowing this, wonder if it will last. Very interested in cancelling sky now. Surely you get all the up to date shows in America Netflix?

Dont see why they would car, Netflix is owned by the same company, whether its usa or uk. maybe they should have the same content in the uk as in the usa and people would not need to do it.
I Would not keep netflix with the UK content as it is, but once its fully up and running like the USA. I can see it might force sky to put their movie prices down. and hurt love films.

Could you give us an idea of what's available when you get it working, as I will probably switch.

Thanks
Day after I sign up to Netflix this is posted?!

Someone posted on another HUKD thread that they couldn't use the BBC iPlayer with the US DNS settings. So keep that in mind if you suddenly get the urge to watch some BBC TV.

I cant stress what a awesome selection they have, if you dont have netflix, get it, its only 5.99 and free for the first month and they give you 15.00 for trying it as well.

It's the unblock-US dns, so if you're watching from a computer you will have to register for a weeks free trial on their website, if you are watching on a phone, PS3 or Xbox, you don't have to register and it's free forever. I've been using it for a few weeks on my android phones and PS3 with no problems. (DIGITAL SPY USER)

In the wireless settings then advanced, but I think you need to change your router for this as it wont work on my with 3G. but you dont need to touch the router for the PS3.

Can't believe the stuff USA have, well worth 5.99 now. Even thou I missed out on the 15 quidco still happy bargain
I'm in also, yeeeeeeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Only about 20 times better selection already, good way to keep a customer.

So you have to set up a custom internet connection on the PS3 leave most auto except for the DNS settings of course, keep all your old settings as is, quite simple.

Away to watch something
