HOW TO GET NETFLIX IN MALTA – SOLVED!

When you go to Netflix.com, your IP address is being checked by netflix to see where you are located.

If you go to Netflix from a computer that is connected through a standard European IP address, Netflix will display a message that says, “Service is not currently available in your area.”

If your computer shows an IP address outside of the US/UK, you will be blocked from accessing content on Netflix.com.

To fix this you need to change the IP on your computer to show an IP address that is located in the US/UK. That is it!

It may sound complicated but do not worry – its super easy to do this even if you are not a “computer person.”

Hey Mike

Simple

You need a good VPN provider like " Hide My A**" (£5 a month).The setup itself is quite easy and all you have to do is install the small app for either PC or Mac, and then choose what server in the US or UK you want to connect to – that is it. For iPhones, iPads, Android phones and other devices you will get manual settings you need to input. Once again very easy to get started

ah bernice.... we all do ;)

To be honest I thought that Hide My A** was a very very slow VPN and Ipvanish i find very very quick. Gives you a list of different countries and different IPs. VERY VERY Good and at only $6.49 if you take out a yearly service...

I use the UK side of it and the US side aswell so it works well for everything oh and can be used on your IPAD :) and more than one device at the same time

PS this is not me advertising my service its me telling you about a great service that i have used

I use the Media Hint add on for firefox.  It's free and easy to set up but it only works for netflix.

Hi again SMeddie

We had a discussion about using a UK Apple TV in Malta with Netflix a short while ago.

I found just recently discovered a VPN company called Overplay. They have something called SmartDNS which adds a functionality to Apple TV so that you can get it operating as if in the UK (or even US).

It's not quite a VPN but it does mean that I can now access Netflix using my Apple TV.

I have added it also to my computers (Windows and Mac), iPhones and iPads, etc. From what I have experienced the last few days, it doesn't slow your connection like some VPNs. It's main function is to allow you access to streaming sites abroad. Although not all are covered, I have accessed all the ones I want.

I hope this is helpful. I have no connection with this company, I just discovered it when browsing the Net looking for a solution for my Apple TV. I'm not a computer expert but found the instructions to use this very clear on the website.
