OK well we now know they've got at least 3 subscribers in SA then lol

I'd imagine a VPN should do the trick. Haven't been keeping up to date with this but should work. You could probably even find some instructions online to roll your own if you're so inclined. Cheap VPS w/ lots of data allowance.

...hang on will give it a try quick & see if I can jump regions with PIA

Up until the other day I was also still jumping through hoops. But lately I just decided to use my remote and click on the Kodi app...
So much simpler, kid still watches toons on Netflix.

Just tried PIA - no joy.

So yeah think the cleanest solution will be to custom roll a VPN. They're not going to pick that up, though I think you can't use AWS...pretty sure those IPs will be blocked.

Stopped jumping through the hoops months ago.

Couldn't be happier.

Netflix blocked most IP ranges assigned to datacenters. So even rolling your own VPN on a VPS somewhere won't work.

Couldn't see the point when the went crazy and started putting so much effort into blocking - plenty of other stuff to stream.

If they'd continued to pay lip service to the studios it would have been win win.

I mainly use other streaming services now, although I still have Netflix, some other family members watch it.

I only signed up this month and so far so good. Cancelled my showmax subscription as well. I signed up purely for Luke Cage and Narcos, everything else content wise is a bonus for me
