I had Netflix for the best part of a year, and then ditched it a few months back. There wasn't a huge amount of stuff being added regularly, so I decided to 'rest" my subscription for a while and then probably return when they've beefed up their library...and Breaking Bad returns .

Do they ever try and entice old customers back (like every other company) with maybe a free month? £6 for a month is obviously not going to break the bank, but not one to turn down a deal if one is in the offing.

Not that I've seen, you could probably get a free month with a new email address but that's it.

Get Unblock US with Netflix. Netflix then becomes much, much better.

I use moreflicks.com to browse Netflix (as well as iTunes and others).

You still need your Netflix subscription but it opens up a lot more content.

Netflix has been excellent for me over the last 10 months or so.However, now I've had my fill including using unblock-us as there's not enough new content.Also I find it disappointing NF show some titles with stereo sound while already shown with 5.1 sound on regular HDTV.

I used the trial when it first came out here but wasn't keen, i never get around to using it enough. I've had a couple of emails suggesting i re join them but they didn't have any offers of dicount or anything, kinda pointless really!

I had the trial when it first came over here, had an email a month ago offering me another months free trial. Saving it for next week when Arrested Development starts.

Can you use the Unblock US if you're using Netflix through a PS3 or Wii?

Thanks.

Yes, as Unblock US changes the router to make it seem like you are in America, and as the Wii/PS3 connect to the router, they will then believe they have a US connection and will unlock all of Netflix's content.

Yes indeed. You can add the DNS setting direct to the consoles, just goto Unblock-Us and follow the setup instructions for PS3 and Wii.

You can also use PlaymoTV if you don't fancy paying. This will give you access to US Netflix but not the multiple regions that Unblock-US offers though.

Media Hint is another option if you want US Netflix access via PC.
