These companies tend to have DNS servers in many countries, but that's just so that you use something close to your location.

The question is whether they can provide various Netflix regions. On their site I see them basically promoting US Netflix...

True. There must be a way to get German Netflix, possibly via a German VPN server. I'll do some research

Does anyone use BBC iPlayer to stream on their tv? What's the quality like when watching their stuff on a decent-sized tv? Is the quality similar to watching regular tv or is iPlayer mainly suited for much smaller screens like tablets/phones?

Was thinking of getting one of these boxes to stream iPlayer, ITV and Channel 4/5 but only if the picture on a big tv is broadcast quality...

Anyone use Britbox in Australia? Any tips on what hardware/apps to use for watching on a tv, how to subscribe to make the most of the service (apparently some forms of signing-up limit your options), etc.

I just signed up via the website then downloaded the app onto the smart TV. You can also stream via a phone app and I believe the app allows you to cast to a device (chromcast etc). Getting to watch Line of Duty, and have a few oldies lined up to watch and the new All Creatures Great & Small. I purchased the annual subscriptiona s it works out cheaper. Don't think you are limited with devices as you can stream anywhere etc. Their websitr states there are no restrictions unless you signed up via a 3rd party service such as Amazon or AppleTV

Sound great, thanks for the info. This is all available now in Australia without having to resort to VPNs, right?
