    Its £1 pm. In my opinion this small price rose (the first since Netflix started) is not worth moving quickly for. For the extra original content they are providing which costs more to produce surely this increase is justified?

    We pay an extra £2.80 for an unblock service and this allows us access to Netflex USA as well as the UK version. They seem to have a lot more content than the UK version.

    However this is only possible by having the new Play Station.

    An email from Netflix yesterday said my account would stay at the same rate for the next 2 years and not subject to the increase. So, it's for new customers only for now.

    No it isn't. Unblock US works on computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. We have it set up on pretty much every device we own. It worked fine on the old Playstation 3 too, and the Xbox 360 as long as you had Gold membership. It's well worth a extra couple of pounds per month as you can change between lots of Netflix regions, not just UK and US, and they all have different content.

    opening up the other netflix regions does bring a bucket more value, i use a site which is £1.20 a month so it makes the whole package good value.

    Or you could go here http://www.netflixfixer.com/2013/06/updated-dns-codes-for-us-netflix.html and get the USA DNS code for free, we had netflix for 6 months (cancelled last month) and got the DNS code from here, and got all the USA shows, just as legal as unblockus is
