    Won't work (haven't tested it though)
    Reasons:
    Netflix tracks VPN or IP address so even if you changed the region of the app, the server won't change (not tested yet though)

    netflix tracks you by IP, not by app region.

    Actually. This won't work. Changing regions only spoofs your region for the client not the server, but no matter what Netflix is serversided so no...

    Netflix is getting rid of Doctor Who for the USA? What sort of Darlek is Netflix for doing such a thing? Doctor Who is one of my favorite shows.

    Keep in mind that Netflix has been working hard to detect and block VPN usage recently. Might as well just torrent it (using a no-logs kept VPN with port forwarding, of course).

    Was checking the internet about it, and it seems this isn't the first time. It was also done last year, with availability until 2/1/15, but as we see now, it was either kept, or brought back at a later date.

    I've been using Unblock Us for 2 years now and I've never had any issues whatsoever, haven't seen Netflix trying to block it, no notices or warnings or anything either.
