    It's probably the geoblock. It may work inside the US, but the servers won't talk to anyone outside.

    Really? Maybe the fixed the loophole... They definitely don't want anyone outside the US to use it though. Are you really living on the Bahamas? Are they exempt from the Geoblock (i.e. does it work on your computer?) Why use a european console then?

    I live in europe, I just don't want to reveal my exact location so I chose a random country from the list when making an account

    Well, then I think it's a safe bet to assume they fixed the loophole in their geoblock.

    Netflix fixed the VPN access a month ago so I guess it's the same with emunand

    Well, I can still use Smartflix to watch things outside my region :P

    Not sure if it's the same thing with the 3DS. Never tried, screen is too small.

    I did see that, but nothing changed here D:

    Not sure if there is some kind of trial time, I imagine there is. I don't really use Netflix xD
