Guys

I don't use my 360 for anything other than games. But seeing my friends list is constantly filled with people watching stuff on these I thought I'd give it a bash.

Which is better?

Do you pay for it? Or has everyone just done the trial? And how easy is the trail to cancel?

Thanks :mrgreen:

Netflix has a better television show library, especially if you use the DNS trick to fool it into thinking you have a US connection.

Lovefilm has a better movie library than Netflix UK but using UnblockUS will give you the best selection from the US, Canadian, European and South American regions.

I'm not sure if this is still the case but you could only cancel Lovefilm online between the hours of 11pm and 8am (when their call centers are closed). You would have to phone them to cancel at all other times.

There's the complete list of all the shows and movies available on Netflix Canada, US and UK here: http://uk.istreamguide.com/

Your UK account will work with all the other regions :D

You can sign up for a free one week trial to UnblockUS so you can fool Netflix into thinking you live in another region.

Netflix is only good if you want physical discs or games.

Netflix checks your DNS settings to determine what region you are from and redirects you to the corresponding store.

UnblockUS lets you change your DNS region to make Netflix think that's where you currently reside.

Which DNS settings are you using? UnblockUS? If so, did you actually create an account with UnblockUS?

It says you don't need an account wi unblockus. I only want it on my 360. The thread in the entertainment folder states this too.

I just followed the link to the 360 section and did what it told me

It says just to change the dns settings on my 360 which I did. And if I get an error message delete and try again. It doesn't work :(

You do need an account on UnblockUS or it wont work.

But the thread says you only need to pay for unblockus if you are using it from a pc which I'm not?

We were asking for that to get updated for a long time. That used to be the case when UnblockUS was in beta, but it no longer applies. UnblockUS requires a subscription (or 1 week free trial) in order to work now.

Oh right okay thanks laga.

Once I used the free trial. Will my Xbox work all the time? Or do I need to subscribe to the service?
