    Does new stuff get added to it every week or two like on LoveFilm player? Because I have had Netflix for about a month now, and nothing else has been added, as far as I can see?

    My trial and my gold expire today and I wont be continuing with Netflix, the UK selection is poor though the US version is slightly better.

    Has the dns trick been fixed?

    The reason I ask is because I have just tried it for the first time on both my Xbox 360 and PS3 and every time I reboot and go back onto Netflix, it is still the UK stuff??

    Anyone else get this or know if there is a way to fix it?

    Could the last Xbox update caused this?

    Tried the DNS trick again today and still get UK Netflix. Maybe it is a setting in my router that is causing it?

    Still working for me last night.

    TBH if the US trick stopped working id stop subscribing.

    US content is so much better.

    Just an update for you guys:

    So my Netgear router would not recognise the change in DNS settings and I kept getting the UK Netflix, so I decided to change to the standard crappy router TalkTalk gave me, and viola I have US Netflix, and I have to say the content is much better! Watched an excellent martial arts film called 'Chocolat' very much like Ong Bak, but still great!

    I will have to check out that Chocolat. I saw Goemon and 13 assassins some days ago and I absolutely loved both of them.

    I am sure the Netflix people are happy to have this hole in the know- gets more subscribers. It will be Lovefilm that will get their panties in a bunch over it.

    Netflix may want to let this happen, but i bet the companies they pay royalties and licence fees to wont, and Netflix will have to show willing if its proved they know about it.

    I think they just closed the loophole. Can anyone else confirm? Auto DNS lets me into the crappy uk Netflix. The other one won't let me sign in.

    I just double checked on my Samsung TV. Still working for me at time of posting.

    Not checked on my Xbox yet, but the fact that it still works via the app on my Samsung means something right?

    I tried it on my PS3 a little while ago and would not log me in, restarted my PS3 and it came up saying it could not log me in, so I quit Netflix and reloaded it and now it is working fine again. So maybe something is up, but still working for now.

    Couldn't connect to US Netflix last night around 10pm, worked fine with UK. Was using a different 360 to view US version around 6pm with no issue and will try on that one again later. Hope it's still works as I'm half way through a few series that are not available on the UK version :(

    Well, I could not connect this morning either. Connection to the bare bones UK one works fine when I set the DNS to auto, but nothing worth watching on there anyway!

    Why not try using unblock-us, if you want to keep watching us content ??

    Costs a couple of £'s a month, easy to set up and will give you access to loads of other us based sites (Hulu etc...)

    There's an affiliate scheme, so get a couple of freinds to sign up, it'll pay for it's self !!!

    Shamless plug - please take a look by hitting the link below :D
