    How does a VPN work? I'd it a physical product or a code to use? How do you get US Netflix anyway?

    It just scrambles your IP address so nobody can see which region you're in.
    You just have to follow basic instructions to change some codes on your computer. Prices range from about $25 to $100 per annual subscription.

    There are heaps of VPNs to use, some better than others. You can find a range of suggestions for good current VPN's on the Lifehacker website.
    The one I use is Vanished VPN. No issues whatsoever.

    Once you've got yr VPN going, you choose yr region as USA (it's easy), then open yr Netflix app or website.
    It takes a minute to load, then you're in.

    A VPN is great until Netflix realised your using one and kicks you off we've had this happen twice. Netflix are randomly checking for geoblocking (which is what a vpn does). Don't pay for an annual subscription get a month to month. That way when you get kicked by Netflix you're not locked in and can go to another provider.

    Yes, that's right @binnielici - definitely shop around. Lifehacker Australia website recently published a list of VPN providers who actually work, but it can change quickly, so maybe month by month is a good idea.
    The VPN provider I suggested has been working on mine for 6 months with no problems, but who knows!

    I tried 3 VPNs since Netflix cracked down on them with no luck. Before that I was enjoying having access to all the catalogues

    Think of it as a software or an app. You open it up, enter your credentials and press connect and the app changes the IP assigned by your ISP to the one assigned by the VPN provider. That means if your "new" IP is American, Netflix will get the signal that someone is trying to access its content through an American IP, and so, you'll be granted access to American content. same trick works for other Netflix regions provided you connect to the concerned region.

    If you haven't tried any yet, try out Ivacy VPN. The only issue is that it may not support Netflix out of te box, but it DOES offer manual support once you contact their support. I asked their team what the fuss was about and they said that (manual unblocking through support) is the best way to get access to Netflix US without signaling Netflix you're trying to access American content from Australia.

    Can anyone make some suggestions of netflix shows I can watch when the kids are up but NOT watching tv? Most of the shows I watch are very child inappropriate, so even if they're not "watching" I can't watch them while they're awake.
    I've done fuller house (lame I know, but it was a bit of fun and fine to watch while kids were awake and it worked well if I got preoccupied with other stuff I didn't care if I missed a bit). I started watching That 70's show yesterday which also works while the kids are awake but I'm a bit over it. any other ideas?
