I signed up for a two year deal which worked out at about GBP 2.50p a month, a good deal. The software installed fine on Win 10 and I got a connection to a UK based VPN server no problem. My IP address looked as though I was connected to an ISP in Manchester despite me being in Asia. Great stuff, BBC iPlayer worked just fine. So, I tried logging into Netflix with my UK account. Logged in OK but big chunks of content were missing. So I signed out of the VPN and logged back in to Netflix, same result, I was logged in but tons of stuff just not there. It seems like Netflix are smart to the use of NordVPN and their IP addresses in the UK. I trawled the NordVPN website and found a footnote at the bottom of a Blog page that said they only support Netflix streaming fully in the USA and France. Looks like Netflix in the UK is a tougher nut to crack.

    So, I mailed NordVPN to cancel the subscription. They have offered a full refund, I'll wait and see if I get my money back. The final thing to comment about is that NordVPN are based in Panama and while this may be very good for your privacy, I am not that happy to think I gave my credit card details to a Panamanian company I actually know little about other than the rave reviews they get on line in the ezines.

    Just thought I'd share that..............
    Why didn't you try the US servers of NordVPN? however I use ExpressVPN US servers for Netflix US in UAE, I am able to unblock all the US content which earlier was unavailable in my country. The US servers are good speed and seem to work for me so far. Getting a US IP is important when unblocking US library
