    So as of today ExpressVPN works with Netflx?

    I've tried several VPNs already. Uflix gave up and does not support Netflix anymore. Getflix is currently blocked. Am looking for a service that is NOT currently blocked.

    what movie are you playing? Also what Netflix server is set in Getflix account? If you are playing a movie / series that is also available locally you won't be getting errors. Problem starts appearing once you are actually playing a movie that's not in our local region.

    Try Avengers Grimm, Marvel's Avengers Assemble. Just to test if it plays.

    You can compare all movies available in US and not in PH here:

    Also may I know what device are you using to play netflix right now? Did you set up static routes?

    StrongVPN.

    Most, if not all of the free and budget VPN services have been blocked.

    Getflix working again on my end for Netflix US titles. Their support sent me a message earlier that they have already fixed the problem.

    YMMV

    Getflix did the trick but was recently down.
    Their settings were blocked by Netflix.
    According to their support, they're fixing it.

    I've been using ExpressVPN for both Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos for about a year now. Customer support via chat is very good.

    Hey, I am using ExpressVPN and it is such an amazing option for personal as well as corporate use. When I needed the best vpn china then I got to know about it and bought their one month subscription. It was extremely good so I permanently started using that.

    Just to chime in: I've been using TorGuard for the past 4 months after having used GetFlix for so long. $30 (lifetime) billed semi-annually with one of their promo codes then I got their dedicated streaming IP add-on ($4/month) that works perfectly well with Netflix US -- and other US-based streaming services, of course.

    Speeds are usually 75% of my bandwidth when connected to their big servers (USA West, East, LA-Asia optimised) while their HK and SG servers are usually 60% of my bandwidth. Using their TorGuard app, I just kept connecting to a specific server using different settings and running speedtest each time until I found an IP/server that satisfied me; I would then pin that IP/note it down -- if I want to use it via OpenVPN -- so that I always connect to that specific one.

    Their customer support is pretty fantastic. Replies within 5 minutes or less and they have resolved every issue I've had.

    I highly suggest them if you're not satisfied with your current VPN.
