    If only Netflix would let me sign up. Keep getting a "try again later" message. Very frustrating!!

    Might look into that. I guess you'd need a power adaptor if it's from the US.

    Default Anyone have Netflix or Hulu Plus?

    https://www.roku.com/products/roku-3

    Roku 3 is the latest fandangle model. It's the one I've been looking at. Cnet rated it higher than the Apple one.

    You'll need a VPN (virtual private network) to access a US IP address to allow you to watch Netflix and such. I use a company called Private Internet Access. They are the fastest with the best rating when I researched earlier this year and you can access several other country regions too.

    You can subscribe to unblockus which gives you a US IP so you can access Netflix and Hulu.

    Eta ... it is ok, I see you've already got getflix so you are set for the IP side of things.

    Me too. I was inspired from this thread (already have Hulu), I think it's down for the day.

    This is what we do. I love Netflix. It has started out Walking Dead obsession, and we have watched some good docos too. We had to upgrade our internet to more per month, but we don't spend any money on ourselves normally so figured its a bit of a treat.
