You won't be able to do that. Movie and tv shows the company has licensed for distribution in the US, cannot be exported to customers outside of US borders. The studios would lose money if they allowed that, which is why they make US based companies operating in other countries purchase that same material separately. Plus, Canadian based pay tv, cable and broadcast channels may have content under license, which prevents Netflix Canada from securing it. It wouldn't be fair for them to spend money, only to have Canadian customers flock to Netflix US to watch the same.

Yeah, actually it's quite easy to get US Netflix in Canada, the UK, and Mexico.
I pay for Canadian Netflix, and it was worthless until I changed my DNS to look like I was in the US. I've done it on my Wii, Xbox, and my buddy's PS3.
In your network settings, change DNS from 'Automatic' to 'Manual'. Then enter in a US DNS address.
The ones below worked for months for people, but stopped late last week.
Primary DNS 208.122.23.22
Secondary DNS 208.122.23.23
I found new working ones, but don't want to spread them on the internet. Hunt around for the internet for some, it is well worth it.

Hi guys,

I found out another DNS service like the one opie66 mentions. The DNS addresses are 173.203.204.153 and 173.203.201.131
I am located in Colombia and was able to access US contents. Unfortunately I had to create a Netflix US account because with my Colombian one I only got soap operas tongue.gif

Cheers

Hi there,

Unotelly has been great. I have a Canadian Netflix subscription and with Unotelly I can access the US Netflix content. The movie selection is different but not much better. Where the US Netflix excels is in TV show content - I have caught up on quite a few shows I missed while raising the kids and also revisited some classic shows..

It was easy and cheap to setup with clear instructions on their website. I have used successfully on my WDTV, imac, ipad, Windows 7 laptops and Galaxy S3.

Can you access the other regional Netflixs as well, or just the US?

Being able to access the US Netflix library makes becoming a Netflix member totally worth it.

Just make sure you talk it up a lot so that it gets to be too high profile and ends up being blocked.

Those are DNS address of servers belonging to UnblockUS, a Canadian company whose "VPN" service cost $5/month. Interesting that people were able to use them without subscribing for a while. As a paying subscriber you can go to their website and say which Netflix region's library you want to see. Many non-US regions get fresher big-ticket titles long before we get them in US Netflix. For instance, Canada has Fast Five, Life of Pi, Moneyball, The Social Network, Olympus Has Fallen, Flight, Madagascar 3, etc, etc, not available in the US. Some of those aren't particularly fresh, but Netflix in the US doesn't have them yet, presumably because locally they're locked up by pay television networks.

Flight and Olympus Has Fallen have been streaming in the US for a while now.
