    Cool Netflix on AppleTV in HK

    I'm not much of a entertainment tech person so I got to ask.

    Thinking of getting an Apple TV lately.
    Is there anyone using netflix in HK on their Apple TV?
    How does it work anyway?

    Thanks in advance!

    I would have guessed it didnt work either since apple never advertised in the spec page. But I keep noticing old posts from other sites about routing to another website to get US IP address. Kind of wonder if that still work.. and if thats stable..

    Anyone tried that?

    Golo - not sure about Apple TV, but we get Amazon Prime videos, Hulu and Netflix on our Amazon FireTV. We've been using that for arond a year.

    Use unblock-us.com and a US credit card to setup the account and you'll be all set.

    All our US accounts are tied to a US card, not sure how it works if your Apple TV is tied to a HKD card.

    Apple TV instructions are here:

    I'm using unblockus on my Apple TV with a and both Netflix and HBO Now work perfectly. You might need to have a US iTunes account though.

    @Skierx - do you need a US HBO subscription id of some sort for HBO now?

    HBO Now is 14.99USD per month and doesn't require a cable subscription to purchase. It's a bit like Netflix, but offers all the HBO content as well as some fairly new movies.
