Lots of people visit asking about how to access the American version of Netflix from Canada, the UK, and elsewhere. We’ve consistently tried to keep up to date with the latest free DNS servers available, first in our DNS Codes for Netflix and our “Part 2” version; but that thread is already at
687 more comments in the two months over 1000 comments since it was posted, with lots of updates as we’ve confirmed new working codes.
We realize that these constantly changing codes might be frustrating some NetflixFixers, always playing a cat and mouse game with the servers when you just want to watch a show. We’ve written at length about different services you can use to get around country restrictions, including Hola, MediaHint, Anonymoux, and others. Unfortunately, most of these services have let us down at various times after we posted about them. There was a wave of Chrome plugins being bought by spammers that started interjecting ads into your regular web browsing sites – which is unacceptable. Hola was even found to be using user’s connections as TOR exit nodes – an incredibly dangerous activity.
That’s why we’re moving to Unblock-Us.
For $5/month after a one week free trial you can connect to Netflix and other streaming sites from whichever country you want. After using it for these past months, we highly recommend it.

Being subscribed to /r/Netflix, this site has come up over and over again with positive comments from people sharing what they use when asked about getting around country restrictions. We resisted it at first because it is a paid service (about $4.99 currently after a week free trial), but we finally decided to try it out and it works great. It seems that by paying a small amount per month, you can get around the common problems with constantly changing codes, slow servers, Netflix not working, etc. It makes sense really – every time we post a free DNS server, thousands of people connect to it and start streaming HD movies through a single connection. It’s no wonder it either slows way down, Netflix blocks it, or the admin takes it down. It just makes sense, so we asked around, tried it out, and are ready to endorse Unblock-Us.

We will still support the people looking for updated free DNS codes. When they’re up, we’ll spread the word; when none are available, we’ll keep looking while we use Unblock-Us for our own streaming 🙂
TL;DR version (too long; didn’t read):
– It’s hard to keep up with the latest free DNS servers for American Netflix (though we will still keep updating them)
– Web plugins we previously recommended got bought by spam companies and started hijacking their user’s connections.
– We now recommend Unblock-Us if you don’t want to put up with the hassle of constantly finding new DNS servers.
