    Smile Any non-Americans using VPN for Netfix, Hulu, BBC, etc?

    I live in Canada and want the video abilities that those in the US have. I know Netflix is coming to Canada sometime this Fall but I don't trust the selection we will have. Whatever info I can get may also be useful with the new Apple TV as long as it supports VPN.

    So I'm wondering what other users experiences are with using VPN services (like Giganews etc) and US based websites or apps with video content (CBS, Hulu, Netflix, etc, even BBC in the UK).

    Does it work well, streaming issues, worth the monthly VPN costs? etc. Any hiccups or is it pretty smooth sailing?

    Or are there any other services other Canadians can recommend?

    Thanks a million!

    abc player and netflix works for me on my ipad... no lagging or slow downs.... pure streaming!! I got a invite from hulu plus but can't subscribe as i don't have a real credit card from the states... i got a prepaid visa from the states and hulu won't accept it! just get a good vpn provider with unlimited use and your good to go... just don't go with the free ones...

    I use strongvpn.com as a VPN provider and can verify that it works in both Mexico and Europe.

    USVideo.ca

    I am using USVideo.ca.

    They are not a VPN solution so there is no slow down, it does not affect traffic, it is unlimited and covers all devices on your home network. For $5/month it is a good deal.

    They have instructions on how to get virtual Visa card working with Netflix. Worked fine for me.

    They support Hulu Plus and other streaming services but you need a credit card with US address to subscribe through Hulu Plus invite...

    Strong VPN works well in here even in Dominica. However don't expect hulu to work, it stutters. Netflix works fine.

    I just blogged about this on my blog ([...edited out blog address...], can't post a link since I just joined unfortunately but go to [...same edit...). I am going to blog in the future about how I got my router setup as well so that all my traffic comes from behind the VPN but I haven't gotten there yet. Anyway, hope the article helps!

    I'm using UnoTelly.com right now and they have everything you mentioned except Netflix although it looks like they are working on it according to their Twitter feed.

    It's $4.95 a month and no speed loss because it's not a VPN (i.e. doesn't reroute all your traffic because that's how it slows you down).
