Watch Netflix Streaming From an Overseas Base

I’m not sure if this solution works, so I removed the article. Also, according to Netflix, they are exempting overseas bases from overseas restrictions.

Will this work for HBO on the go?

Meez – yes it should work with HBO on the go. I don’t see why not.

Crap, today netflix started saying,
“Whoops, something went wrong…
Internet Connection Problem
An Internet or home network connection problem is preventing playback. Please check your Internet connection and try again. If the problem persists, please call Netflix at 1-800-585-7265.
Error Code: N8106-106

Anyone else get this?

Hello,

Set your date and clock to your correct time zone and it should start working again.

By correct time zone do you mean correct to the us ip adress the program is using? Correct to your billing adress? Or correct to your overseas adress?

First try setting it to you local time zone. If that doesn’t work, try setting it to US time zone, such as east coast.

Thanks so much for this great info! I am stationed in Germany and would love to catch up on some good ole American TV! Someone mentioned that using such a service can slow down internet browsing and other applications. Has anyone faced such issues?

I do experience a slight slow down in my internet. But the speed is high enough to support video streaming and browsing web sites.

Thanks for the help. I have a wireless router that feeds my PS3 as well as my laptops. Is there a way I can change the router’s IP to a stateside IP so all of my devices are covered?

Christopher,

Yes there is a way to do this with a VPN connection but it’s kind of complicated. You need to either purchase a router that runs software called DD-WRT, or modify your router so it runs it. The tutorial for that is here:

Of note, I’m testing out a new service that is easier to run on a router, and will be posting about it soon. Please email to [email protected] if you would like to test it out.

Casey
