Netflix now available in Thailand without proxy or VPN

Hi ForumMates,

Netflix is now available in Thailand without the need for a proxy server or VPN.  In fact, Netflix is now supposedly blocking members using a VPN from outside of the U.S. to access full U.S. content.  What you get from Thailand is more limited, but I don't know specifically how much more limited.

Anyway, you can get Netflix in Thailand now, just go to their website and sign up for around US$12 per month.  You can try for one month at no charge.

Newflix has a vast amount of content, but depending upon your interests, it may or may not have anyting you want to watch.  For example, no news or sports.  However, literally thousands of movies and TV series, but most of the series, as far as I can tell, are previous seasons.

Season 2, brand new, of "Better Call Saul," the "Breaking Bad" spinnoff will be streamed in February, each episode will air the day after it airs on teevee.  The quality is great, but as series are so readily available via torrent, this may not make Netflix any more attractive.

The Netflix catalog search is not very user-friendly in that to find out what is playing, you have to frustratingly scroll through vast lists of content.  I just found "Better Call Saul" by accident.  I still have no idea what else might be on offer that I want to see.

However, for me, it is worth the $12 Bucks because of the large collections of WONDERFUL documentaries which I am finding hugely entertaining and informative.  Most of the the series I have no interest in.  The movies, although there are bzillions of them, I have either already seen or have no interest in. I am unusual, I think, in that I am perfectly happy to go to the cinema to watch some piece of crap, but I would not invest two hours in it on video at home.   I have not fooled around with it enough to comment on any of the Netflix original programming except for the extraordinary "Sense 8" which I saw on torrent last year!

Anyway, if you like mostly moves and series, check it out.
