Hey guys, I’ve had an account before but that went so I’ve rejoined. I mainly came to ask this question as it was here I found the vpn Netflix deal/thing/Konami code
My starling card expired and when I tried to update the details...errors like others I have seen mention. I’m yet to see a definitive loophole/workaround this issue. Are Slipknot right?
All Hope is Gone. Has Netflix caught on and now making it hard/impossible to update card details? I’ve seen posts about gift cards and update payment info forms. Unfortunately this hasn’t worked for moi. Is it time for me to suck it up and either pay £13.99 (joining a group isn’t ideal as there’s more than me etc) or just have a relationship with Prime Video & Disney+?
Anyway cheers for having a gander at my question.

I used LG tv and Starling card.
Took lots of googling to find a solution. Finally spotted the advice on another thread here. Not seen it anywhere else.
Please only ask if you are actually going to use it!
Sorry can i ask what the Argentina method cost in the end?
Looking at giving this a go (edited)
I eneded up getting the top tier package for £8.50 - extra cost was due to recent taxes introduced by Argentina!
ust get a revolut card works perfectly.
will do. Have to apply for one but got a starling card just for this and now it’s registered
just use the virtual card on Revolut, and have it use that, I just fund it with £20 and let it go down, full package has been about £4.20 and last month £3.70.
no just top up the main account and it takes it from there.
Yes to all questions only watch out is the VPN need to show Turkey not all do and that can cause issues and oh don’t forget to make sure your account is verified by having a phone number on the Netflix account.
already verified email and phone number
and I have seen good reports of Hola VPN which logs on to turkey
thanks again for the help
Our previous revolut card expired. A new replacement has just arrived.
Netflix is now asking for updated payment info.
Unsure how to update the payment details (from here in the UK), without triggering any sort of tripwire.
Need to add the new card details
- Can this actually be done through the smart TV app easily?
I have an old samsung smart-TV, with the netflix app on it.
When the smart tv is using netflix -
it never used a VPN.
The one and only time we ever touched a VPN, was for the initial netflix account creation/sign-up via turkey.
We would be most grateful for any help/assistance/guidance, fellow members, are willing to provide (Aug 2022).
I think it would help many others too
So - on advice of fellow members - I've decided to try the SAMSUNG In-built smartTV app pathway - to update payment details.
A) Should we use the main revolut card details - or a virtual one? If so - why?
B) A stupid and beyond annoying problem has presented itself. Card Number - can enter - no issue. Expiry month - easy. CVv - no issue.
The difficulty I'm having is with the expiry date YEAR. On the screen there is a grid of 12 dates - starting from 1970 to 1981. There is no scroll bar. There is no way to enter the year manually.
There MUST be a way to scoll to the 2020's - I just cannot work out how to do it - so i'm asking for help.
How can I successfully scroll through the expiry date YEAR on the enter your details section - of the netflix smart-tv app?
This is the remote I have:
Buying a gift card worked for me
I bought from a seller called Oyunonecomcost me £12.38 - about 2 mins after pressing the button was all set up.
loaded gift card and all worked fine. About a week later updated my card and in next billing cycle it all went smoothly and has done since (Barclaycard)
Thanks for the info
or do proper credit cards only work now ?
Any chance I could have this pls ?
turns out I had a revolut from years back but still need to order the physical card.
When it arrives can I add it as the secondary payment on my Netflix as primary is starling or easier to just add revolut ? I prefer starling if I can get away with it as preferential terms using starling abroad
and once it goes to zero use a new virtual card ?
As my Netflix one month sub is due to finish end of month I’m assuming I now have to reactivate it , replace starling with virtual revolut card then cancel again before money is taken out end of month. Then after the whole thing cancels use hola vpn for the trick ?
after the virtual uses all its top up money does the Netflix billing system ‘know’ to use the main card automatically or do I have to change it ? (edited)
Sure, I've sent you a direct message.
Another issue is credit cards seem to be hit and miss. Revolut is confirmed working by many others on this and other threads
