Hack: How to Watch Netflix US from Canada or UK on XBox 360 and PS3

Featured, Unblock Netflix, Hulu, BBC and other channels

As you probably know the Canadian Netflix library is significantly smaller and of lower quality than the US equivalent. If you leave in Canada / UK or travelling outside US you may want to get access to Netflix US. Take a look below to find a smart (and free) hack that can be used for any device (including XBox and PS3). Learn how to watch Netflix PS3 or XBox 360.

VPN Services to watch Netflix

There are plenty of paid solutions that allow users from all over the world to access Netflix, Hulu, or similar US-restricted channels. Probably the most popular are the VPN services with US servers. The trick is to connect to such a server and hide your real IP address under a US IP. Thus, Netflix (or other similar channel) would not detected you as an outside US Internet user, but as a genuine US citizen.

DNS trick to watch Netflix

The hack presented below does not use the VPN technology but a DNS trick. You will need to change your DNS settings such that the Netflix site is not resolved by the regular IP address, but to the IP of a proxy located on a server in US. The proxy will handle the authentication part such that Netflix sees you as a US user. After that you will be able to watch Netflix PS3 or XBox 360 at full speed.

Don’t worry if you don’t understand the tech part of the hack. Just setup the DNS and you are done.

It is important to understand that this is a hack and it may stop working anytime. Also, it only works with Netflix US!
