You might be right, but the recently added is new and seems to show 'new' stuff.

Setup an account on Unblock US and put the DNS details into either your iPad or ps3. You can use your existing Netflix account.

Aye, just follow the instructions on the unblock-us site. Ignore the bits about re-downloading the Netflix app and so on. Just follow the bits about changing the DNS settings in your PS3. You don't need another account.

Maybe they just don't add much stuff to the UK version then. The US one gets tons of new stuff daily.

They add new stuff almost daily but don't update the 'New' bits on the site and only mention highlights on their Twitter feed.

That seems like a sensible idea. I mean, why would subscribers want to know what is available?

Thanks guys, I'll give it a go.

Edit: Well that worked a treat, thanks again. I take it after the first month I'll have to pay a monthly sub to unblock-us though?

I highly recommend Example Short 23.976 Clear on the UK Netflix.

Think the free trial only lasts a week. You can keep going through different email addresses if you fancy, but I think it works out about £4 a month so I don't mind paying as a tenner for US Netflix is well worth it in my view.

Agreed, there seems to be a tonne more on the US version.

So if a forum post is to be believed, Breaking Bad series 4 might be coming to US Netflix tomorrow:

I have Netflix streaming but do not have the mail in DVD option. I called Netflix yesterday and asked when BB Season 4 will be released. The CS rep said that it's available now for the mail in DVD option and will be available on Jun 21 for the streaming option.

Some post on a forum called "Brothers of the Leaf" hardly fills me with confidence, but this is all I can find to indicate when it's coming out. I suppose it would make sense with S4 having recently been released on DVD and S5 airing soon.

It looks like their new section 'Recently Added' actually does get updated. At last!

Just noticed Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs appear on the UK Netflix. A really enjoyable animation.

Just watched The Man From Nowhere again and it's well worth seeing, it gets me every time and I'm sure it gets better with every showing!

Wow. Watched this last night and it truly is excellent.

You could just use the PlayMo DNS settings. You don't need an account or anything.

Good luck getting HD out of it, though.

Not wanting to poke the bear or anything, but I can get HD with the Playmo settings (on Virgin). Granted, it does occasionally knock itself around with the quality at peak US times.

I have hardly any issues to say it costs nowt. PS3 reports the highest quality (what is it, V.High HD or summot?) almost all the time. The XBOX doesn't seem to struggle either. I occasionally get some sort of buffering loop on the PS3, but I think I get that with my UK stuff, anyway.

Wasn't impressed with Project Nim when I saw it in the cinema on release. Probably a case of having expectations set too high by Man on Wire. I suspect it'll make a good Netflix watch for those who haven't seen it, though. I'd have thought better of it if it was an hour long TV documentary, I reckon.

I'm on Virgin 100mb and it feels like the quality of Netflix via Playmo has increased quite a bit over the past week of so. I get 1080p & 5.1 on supported shows via an ATV3.

I haven't had to subscribe to unblock us yet, so I might give it a go.

I'm sure there must be a difference, as several people have reported slower transfer speeds when using it in the past. I watch most stuff on my 32", so it's not as easy to appreciate fluctuations in quality. Just give it a go and see if you think Unblock justifies the cost.

You know, I thought I had seen the first season of Louie and watched the second season a few months ago. But, it turns out I watched the show he did before Louie season one call Lucky Louie.
