Other Netflix Hacks

Skip Geoblocking by using Getflix

Netflix comes with restrictions based on your location. For example, users in India won't be able to access all the shows and movies that are currently streaming on Netflix US. Through smart DNS routing techniques, you can break the barrier and access all the fantastic shows that are entertaining the viewers in the United States. To get this privilege, you just need one genie - Getflix.

Getflix masks your IP address and gives you unlimited access to Netflix content, regardless of your current location. However, luxury never comes free, and you must be ready to shell a few bucks for this service ($4.95 per month). Before paying up-front for the service, you can take a 14-day free trial, and after that, you will have to pick a subscription pack. The best part is that you don't have to enter your Credit Card details to enjoy the trial, you get it just by signing up on the website.

Note: Netflix has recently started putting geoblocking off the chart. There are fair chances that it puts a barrier for services like Getflix, so it is only smart to check out the service thoroughly.
