    Default Netflix - Question about DR Content vs US Content

    Hi everyone. I have a Netflix subscription and I wanted to watch the British TV series "Monarch of the Glen." The recent listings of what is leaving Netflix in March includes this program, but when I search Netflix, I can't find it. I am guessing that the Netflix subscription from the DR has different content than a Netflix subscription from the US? Can anyone verify that? And any suggestions on what to do about it? Thanks! Judy

    The show appears to be on Netflix but only avail in the USA. I miss the days when you could go to netflix and look at what they offered. Now there are search engines that specialize in this. These will usually show which countries the content can be viewed  in. I've included two links below.

    Thanks! Any ideas on how I can watch? Amazon used to have it but now only sell the DVDs...I guess I need to decide how badly I want to watch it! Has anyone ever tried the "Express VPN" service. It costs quite a bit but don't know if it's worth it...?

    This should work for $40 a year. I don't use it for nextflix, but it works well for whatever I do use it for.

    Software VPN solutions contain a flaw. It is possible for service providers to identify vpn customers and block their access unless the vpn service takes a proactive approach and continually switches addresses or provides a means to mask the usage of the VPN itself.

    A hardware solution maybe a more reliable solution at least in the short term. Something to consider is this device or something similar. 

    Link provided as a place to start researching, I have no experience with the company, its products or the effectiveness of the concept.

    One can always ask their ISP here in the DR if they offer a US based IP as a service option to their customers. I know that Delancer Cable offers both a DR & US IP and all one has to do is ask to be switched to whichever address is most advantageous.

    Check getflix.com.au for Netflix unblocking, they have a 14 day free trial.

    Suggest that you give their free trial a go and see if it works for you. It does for me here in Santiago:-https://www.unblock-us.com/

    I got a bunch of access to premium shows when I was travelling abroad with my ipad and us Netflix.

    Monarch of the Glenn was great the first season. It dwindled from there but I watched every episode.
