      Not sure about this one, but personally tried Nord, which works.(Not all servers work, a few trials will give you success).

      You can but you'll be prosecuted.

    •  

      For some reason, the Server for China has a name different from all other countries:

      work.In.China.Seed4.me

      Other countries' servers had their country-code in the place of "Work.In.China" eg, France:

      fr.Seed4.me

    •  

      Wouldn't think so. I just came back a few weeks ago. All the vpn services in app store are blocked now. Tried more than 5 of them, none worked. "Due to local policy, our service is not available in your region"

    •  

      technically, the answer is yes, but it requires enough patient and luck.

      main reason is the "work-in-china" server is not working properly, so you need to try with all the other locations.

      myself spend 15min testing all the available server more than 1 time, and finally get connected.

    •  

      In China atm and it hasn't really worked - as in it doesn't connect

      Been alternating between Wang VPN and Ultimate VPN - both connect quite reliably and can get to Gmail/Facebook/Twitter

    Speed is fine for general use but US Netflix does not work. Can browse shows but get the VPN/Proxy error when you try to actually play something.

    •  

      Yeah I’m getting that for each country. Not to mention incredibly slow..
      I did manage to stream 1 film, the quality was low.

  •  

    I tried it and it works great from my iPhone. Netflix works and plays.

    •  

      What did you watch?

      •  

        I started watching the Emoji movie which isnt available on AU Netflix. But this afternoon I tried watching the Spider-Man Homecoming and it said that I was using a proxy and should turn it off and try again.

        • +10 votes

          Try turning off not only location in your settings, but also turn off your mobile data connection, so other apps can't read your true location.

          In Android phones you can go an extra step and turn on 'developer mode' and then turn on 'allow mock locations'.

          Then you can download a 'fake GPS' app, and set it to the location you want.

          An optional step would be to set one browser that you're not using, to use only while in VPN mode, and use the 'incognito' feature in the browser (and preferably clear this browser's cache, cookies, and all data between uses).

            @BooYa: Followed your instructions for an iPhone but still didn’t work :( connected to US VPN then downloaded fake gps app, allowed location services on to NYC then tried using US Netflix on AU a/c - still got an error msg re proxy needs to be turned off :(

            •  

              @HerHaz: Sorry to hear it.

              But don't get discouraged - you can read other comments in this thread, saying that they can use US Netflix on an iPhone (so perhaps try something else, until you get it to work).

              The one thing I can think of, is to suggest using a browser instead of the Netflix app (or if you already tried it on one browser and it didn't work, try a different browser).

              If your phone opens an app automatically when you click a link, such as Netflix or YouTube, you can change settings to always open these links in a browser (or simply delete the app and therefore force the phone to use a browser).

              Another thing worth trying is to try a different VPN provider (this is often the culprit).

              I think it's also important to note that this method almost always works on browsers, but not always on apps.

              Because (for example) some apps, especially those which are concerned with users' geolocation (eg paid streaming apps), can simply check the location and language the phone itself is set-up to use.

              There is also the problem that Australian mobile phones usually get a slightly different model ID, compared to other regions, and this can be read by sneaky apps.

              I believe there are other ways that apps can accurately "guess" your location in other ways, because we give these apps so much permissions to access our phone in so many ways.

              Browsers usually get duped by a good VPN, but I would suggest using Firefox instead of Chrome because of the tight integration with the OS, and therefore accessing your location history etc.

              Remember to turn off "developer mode" (and uncheck "allow mock locations) when you don't use a VPN, because apparently this is another way apps can detect attempts to hide your true location.

              Ps. If you have the time and equipment, there is one other thing you can try - here I described how you can setup a VPN on a laptop or PC, and use it as a hotspot https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/7704579 (this link takes you to the correct comment, but I think I got the link format/syntax wrong, because it's not displaying other comments there correctly).

    Use this all the time for world wide Netflix. Might need to change servers a few times to get the right one, but works a treat.

    Hi, Someone please guide me how to use one year subscription because I already registered with code given here and confirm the email. So now I downloaded the von app but there no login option on the qpp?

    Do you need a US Netflix account to access their content or can you just select a US server and sign into your Aus account?

    • +1 vote

      Might have changed but Aus account should work on the us servers

    • +1 vote

      Australian account will work, I Was able to browse titles only available in the US, but wouldn’t play any on iPhone. Netflix detected the proxy

    • +4 votes

      Yes you can use Australian account to view US Netflix.

      As for things such as an iphone, or any device where you can't install a VPN, you can install it directly on SOME modems, and all wifi connections will go through the VPN (this is fairly complicated compared to the next method).

      Another way to do this, is to install a VPN on your laptop - connect the Ethernet cable for internet access, then in your laptop settings put your wifi into 'wifi hotspot' mode.

      Then you can use the VPN provided by the laptop, by signing into the wifi hotspot, and you should be able to use pretty much anything as if you were in the US.

      If you don't have a laptop you can buy a cheap wifi adapter for your PC, and connect through your PC's wifi.

    Pure VPN has a $0.99 per month, charged up front at ~$12

    If you accept this deal you need to agree to subscribe to the yearly plan (next year charged at $50 or so).

    I don't know if you can cancel before the end of the first year so as not to be charged full price.

    But I know they have a 30 day money back guarantee (although I read that sometimes they can take a while to process the refunds).

    Ps. I'm not sure whether that was in US or AUS dollars, because I don't plan to keep it longer than a year (I bought it with PayPal and I hope to cancel it, or get a refund for next year).

        Btw I don't know how you were able to sign up without giving them your payment details, but if it works can you give some more information.

        Thanks.

    I always worry about 'free' software will start cryptocurrency mining on my PC.

    While it's not malware, it can significantly slow down a PC.

    I read that this is increasingly replacing malware as as a means of monetizing hackers' activities.

    But, the one posted in this deal looks safe, I ran a check using the website URL here
    https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/9afaf5d0ad80ef958821fb73f...

    That's not to say all software downloaded from sites that pass website scanning tools is safe, baceause on many websites the 'version' of the software changes frequently (one day it's safe, then the next it might not be).

    That's why I always run a check on the software itself, preferably in a virtual machine (yeah I'm a bit paranoid, but I have so much time invested in my PC that I'd hate to lose it).

    Thanks OP,
    I'll give it a try. Can you set this up on a router, or TV?

    • +2 votes

      You can't set up a VPN on any tv that I know of (possibly on a tv with the Android OS).

      Whether or not you can install a VPN on a router depends on your router model, whether or not your VPN provider provides VPN firmware for your router, if not you'd need to check if you can flash your router with DD-WRT (or Tomato) firmware and install the correct version https://forum.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

      Flashing a router with another firmware is not thar difficult once you get used to it, it's basically like flashing any other device.

      But, if you don't know what you're doing, you can brick the router.

      Here's a guide how to install a VPN on a router https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.pcmag.com/article/365618...

      Or, you could buy a preflashed router from your VPN provider, already set up for VPN.

      ExpressVPN is known for great access to US streaming sites, and they sell preflashed routers.

      Another VPN provider which sells preflashed routers that comes to mind is Nord VPN.

      And a number of other VPN providers (you'd need to check their website to check whether or not they sell preflashed routers).

      I prefer Vyper for EU region streaming (but I don't think they sell routers).

      Ps. I used to watch a lot US based (video on demand) streaming services, but now I have switched over to using IPTV.

      I pay $3 a month for all subscription channels in any country, or $5-6 per month for several thousand live tv channels from all over the world.

      Other IPTV providers or resellers provide slightly better connection and stability (maybe 5-10% improvement over what I have).

      These other IPTV providers can be fairly expensive costing $20-30 or even $40 per month, but considering the number of channels it's not a bad deal (and it's still cheaper than Foxtel lol).

      I use the Smart IPTV app on my Samsung TV to watch the IPTV streams, and change IPTV channels like I would on the TV by using the remote, so it's pretty convenient.

      •  

        Which IPTV providers you would recommend?

        (I'm particularly interested in the $5-6 per month for several thousand live tv channels from all over the world.)

        •  

          I'll send you a private message with the email address of one reseller.

          Ask for a trial, and if you like it you can buy it on a monby month basis (there are no significant discounts for signing up for longer).

          Now that I think about it more, I think the worldwide IPTV subscription from this reseller may be even cheaper than $5-6 (but I'll have to check my email history).

          Ps. The payment is in Euros, so it will change in line with currency exchange rates.

        •  

          Also, I use it on a 50" Samsung tv using the Smart IPTV app ($5 one time lifetime registration), and it looks great.

          Many channels look better than other sources such as Foxtel or free to air tv because the tv recognises them as 1920×1080 streams.

          You'll also get a tv guide for most channels right from the user interface (under most channels).

    Hi,

    Might have messed this up, I do the app on my iPad prior to signing up and only got 7 days. I then uninstalled on iPad and signed up via internet and got one year. Reinstalled on iPad but still saying only 7 days trial…..any suggestions?. Thanks

    Edit: Seems on iPad Netflix detected the proxy….is there a way around this, I used us connection. Thanks again.

      Should work on the Android tv box.

      I doubt it'd work on an unmoded PS3 (maybe if you setup a VPN on the router, or connect to a wifi hotspot on your PC/laptop running a VPN, but I don't know much about PS so it's just a guess).

      •  

        I can install the APK on Android TV box but the apps rotated on it's side and the controls don't work - can't click the activate button.

        The speeds aren't great on my phone anyway… struggling to get SD BBC iPlayer to work!

    Just a quick test I did with Amsterdam servers:

    SEED4.ME: 448ms 2.65Mbps 1.02Mbps
    Freedome (Paid): 290ms 30.76Mbps 2.93Mbps
    NO VPN: 25ms 40.27Mbps 11.19Mbps

    So just on the Amsterdam server it's yes, free, but very horrible speed compared to paid VPN.

    YMMV

    Regards,
    Ed.

    •  

      Which speedtest site did you use?

      •  

        Usual Ookla speedtest.net

        Both endpoint were correctly identified in Amsterdam.

        Happy to a little more testing for you if you like but Ookla is usually pretty damn accurate especially if you back to back the test.

        Regards,
        Ed.

          Thanks.

          I just did a few to Amsterdam using SpeedTest app and Vypr VPN

          35-40 down 1.1-1.8 up
          Jitter 2-4

          No VPN 104 down 5.9 up

          Using phone on wifi and Telstra cable (not NBN)
