    Why am I having such a hard time with iPad and Netflix and Amazon video. They are continually stopping or freezing with the audio going but the video stopped. This does not happen with my kindle fire. Help!

    I use Amazon Instant Video and Netflix on iPad 2 and 4, two Kindle Fire HDs and other devices, and the sound and video quality are fine on all.

    iPads seem to have more finicky wifi connections in general, so I'd look toward that with your iPad and router setup.

    I use my Mini for Netflix daily. The picture and sound is great on any of my Apple devices. The only time it freezes is when my phone jumps to 3G, but it usually only last a few seconds, then it picks right back up. I know you said your fire wasn't having this problem, but usually anytime the picture freezes, it's usually your Internet connection.

    Subscribe to a VPN service (which hides your IP address), then buy or rent what you want to see from a service that offers what you're trying to see. Because your question is vague, the answer is general. There's no one way to see everything in other countries.

    Thanks you for your help, I'm sorry , I wasn't too clear, I thought that I was carrying on from where I had left off about Netflix. Little did I know that you only saw the tail end of my query,, are you able to recommend a good VPN service at all ? Kind regards D.x

    I've moved this to the Help Section where it will get better attention.

    Thanks!

    I can see the whole thread, but the thread has covered various services, including Hulu and Netflix, so it would require someone to assume what specific shows you were seeking. I try not to assume.

    If you want to see U.S. shows on Netflix, get VPN and a US Netflix account. VPN is available from many sources, so I can recommend what I use, but I don't know if it's flat-out the best service (works well for me is all I can vouch for); I use HideMyAss.

    As for a US Netflix account if you don't live in the US and have no US credit card, I don't know the details. Maybe someone else can help or you can google.

    Hope you get what you seek. You mentioned wanting to see shows in "countries" plural. US Netflix will offer different shows than UK Netflix, Canada Netflix, etc. So if you really want to see specific shows, best to name them. I use VPN from the US to watch shows from Asia and Europe, but I use a bunch of different apps to do that, because there is no unified app or site from which to see everything. Depending on what you want to see, there also are cable TV and commercial network TV apps that offer shows on a limited basis. Again, depends on what you want to see.

    There's an app called CanIStream.It that tells you what shows or movies are available via what service. I don't know whether that app is available beyond the US, but you might check for it if you have specific shows in mind.
