Streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Video offer a cost effective and seamless way to watch your favourite TV shows and movies on your TV and devices at home. The thing is however that this experience varies based on what country to live in. These streaming services have a feature called geo-blocking which is used to determine where in the world you are located and then deliver a content library based on your location. A great example of this is the comparison to the American Netflix library and the Australian Netflix library, with the latter having only a fraction of the content. So, how do you get around this? I mean you are paying the dollars right so it’s only natural that you want access to all of the content. Thankfully the answer is very simple, use a DNS unblocking service.
DNS unblocking services fool these streaming services into thinking that you are location in another country, granting you access to all of their TV show and movie content.
One of the most reliable and simple DNS unblocking services is Getflix.

Why Not Use a VPN?
You able able to setup a VPN (Virtual Private Network) in order to access region restricted content, but its not always the best solution. Here is why:
- All traffic goes through the VPN, this means that your general internet useage will be slower than usual. A DNS Unblocker only sends region restricted content through their service keeping your internet free to handle the day to day useage
- A VPN is generally more expensive
- A higher technical understanding is generally required fr setting up and running a VPN
Not sure what option is best for you? Well good news, Getflix gives you a free VPN as part of your DNS Unblocker plan, this means you can try both and pick the one that works best for you.
