Not sure how many Canadians and Brits use this site, http://www.unblock-us.com. It's a DNS provider that allows you switch between pretty much any region for apps like Netflix (I currently have my PS3 running the American Netflix, 360 is running the UK Netflix and the other 360 running the Canadian Netflix). You can also switch between any region with a drop down menu.

It's $4.99/month, to start you get a 7 day free trial and they don't even ask for payment info. Once you trial is over you can add your payment info and continue on, or just switch your DNS settings back to normal and it will "go away".

Interesting. I honestly didn't know there were different regions for Netflix. As in, different regions have different movies/shows?

Each region has different content. It's funny because Canadians always bitch about our version having shit compared to the U.S. but there is a ton of stuff on the Canadian feed that is not available in the U.S. Like how every Star Trek series and movie (except the J.J. Abrams one) is available in Canada but not in the U.S. Then the U.S. has stuff like Burn Notice that is not available in Canada.

I've been trying to buy and old copy of the 80's movie "Real Genius" and I can't get it anywhere. Look on the UK Netflix and there it is.
