Default Oh No!!! They've killed Netflix

I know its not just me as a number of my friends are experiencing the same thing.

Netflix UK and US now detects VeePeeNs and Ghost DNS addresses and won't play.

How will I survive without House of Cards.

just a suggestion, but why not sign up for Netflix UAE... I'm 9.99 USD a month, and I get it on 2 devices at the same time. House of Cards was added last week...

Default Re: Oh No!!! They've killed Netflix

I miss the days when we only had 1 TV channel and no internet and no mobiles.
We only got movies on tape (VHS) and my dad had to watch them the night before to make sure they were clean for us.
I remember going to a drive-in cinema and watching films in our car.
Heres a brilliant business idea, why dont I open a drive-in cinema?? answer, because 8 months of the year no one would come to watch the movies
Well the customers can leave their car ACs on and we do a bluetooth connectivity thing for sound etc but I doubt its really that 'green' to leave the car running for 2-3 hours in one go. Ok Im rambling, I need to get dehydrated soon!

Wow you are showing your age! I'm also sure someone out there has or is making a device where you can stream movies onto the dvd players in the cars, therefore not needing to do to a drive through cinema. Although I'm not quite sure why a sofa doesn't suffice

Netflix said they were going to crack down on VPN and DNS.

Don't worry, for every fix, there is a work-around. Give it a week or so.

US Netflix works for me as of today. I am getting a message from time to time locking it down which says I am using VPN or whatever, but a simple reboot of my amazon box unlocks it again.
