    Hulu , Netflix in Germany

    How does it work to watch Hulu and Netflix while living overseas ?

    I want to keep our subscriptions and I just want to know if you kept yours.

    Folks were talking about getting an IP blocker and/or Hidemyass, I think?

    I didn't get my Netflix account until after I came back stateside. However, I do remember that it was always difficult to watch stateside shows via their respective sites (i.e. ABC, CBS, etc) because of the foreign IP addresses. Hulu works off of those sites, so that may be difficult.

    However, if you live close to a post like Ramstein AB, I have been told that they transmit an IP address that allows you to be able to watch stateside shows. My Dad was stationed at Geilenkirchen NATO - they didn't have that capability.

    Hopefully someone with Netflix OCONUS experience can help.

    I don't have first hand experience, but this is what I have heard as well! Theoretically, it would make sense to me that this would work (sorry, my nerd is showing, I know) and I'm pretty sure a couple of people here have said that it does, because it makes it look like you're using netflix/hulu from somewhere in the USA, not from where ever you are!

    Hopefully someone who has first hand knowledge will tell us if we're right

    We lived on base in Korea and Hulu and Netflix streaming did not work and neither did any network/cable TV show websites. We were able to get DVD's through Netflix. We never tried masking our IP.
