Netflix USA quote:

Anyone else have netflix usa in canada? I got mine set up, wasn't very hard, and there is more than 10x more content than the Canada version

Okay here's the steps:

1. http://usvideo.org/ sign up on there
2. follow the directions depending on what kind of router you have. It is just editing the dns server under your router page.
3. go to safeway or such and buy a prepaid visa card.
4. on the card there is a website, go there and register your card with a usa address. I used a car dealership.
5. make sure under country you still pick canada.
6. now when you go on usa netflix it won't say sorry you are not in the usa. You can proceed to sign up.
7. use the same info you used registering your prepaid visa.
8. Good to go!

When signing up for the usvideo, you can use a normal visa, or paypal.

Care to make your thread remotely useful by detailing how you are able to use a US Netflix account in Canada?

All I did was spoof the router dns so it makes it appear that my i.p is in USA, then use a prepaid credit card from safeway. Sign up with any usa address and postal code, and then you're good to go.


Works on any device in my network. we have usa netflix running on xbox, 3 pc's

Interesting can you give a bit more detail in regards to spoofing the router dns. I use paypal to pay my Canadian Netflix... will it work if I am able to spoof the router?

No it will not, that's what I wanted to do, but you need to use the prepaid ones (the easiest way), for 50 dollar prepaid card thats like 6 months of netflix.

mod sticky this and I'll write up a quick guide to setting it up in full detail.

Huh?

That doesn't make any technical sense.

I would suspect that they would base your country of origin based on ARIN records making "DNS spoofing" useless.

I can see if you were using a proxy located in the US. However the bandwidth on those are rarely fast.

So essentially you pay $50/year for a US proxy service.

Not exactly rocket science here.

Several forums I frequent have said Hulu is starting to block UsVideo and Netflix will be next on the list.

Having both a USA Netflix and Canada Netflix account I can honestly say for the extra $8 bucks a month IMO the additional content is not worth double the price; especially with the growth of titles Canada Netflix goes through each month.

However Canada Netflix really needs to work on its search features, its extremely weak that over 55% of all titles can only be found with a direct title search.
