    Great information! and thanks Julian for passing on the info, I already have PureVPN and with that Netflix search, it will be extremely easy for me to watch whatever I want on Netflix

    Thanks for the article Jason! Btw, I have just joined the BETA of Filmefy, which is a Netflix search engine. It will tell you the regions a movie or show is available in. Then, you can use any VPN/DNS/Proxy and change your country to that region.
