    netflix set up?

    ok, my tech-savvy step dad is visiting and has netflix on his Ipad that he is accessing while here.

    he knows how to set it all up, but we are wondering if the PS3's in HK have the netflix installed? or would i have to get one of the players in north america and bring it here to work it all?

    thanks, guys!

    Keep us posted if he can get it to work on his Ipad.

    I can confirm that the Xbox app is region locked and anyone caught using it with a VPN risks getting their account and console/device banned. Its probably the same with PS3 as I think they are blocking all overseas IP addresses.

    On a similar topic, I see that HMV has movie streaming capabilities for "UK customers". Has anyone with a UK credit card tried to stream movies to a HK computer from HMV.com?

    Can you please have him post info on how he gets it to work? settings, vpn etc?
    I might try the same settings on a PS3 and see if it works.

    DVD ladies are a thing of the past. Pick up one of these and you have Free access to a streaming server in China that has almost every local and foreign movie that you can watch or download. http://www.himedia-tech.cn/en/
