Your US based subscription works here . I just tried mine without a VPN connection and it now works... A few ago it would have reported an error .

Bro JamBam,

Do you get the same US materials? I'll try mine tonight. Too bad, I had to spent for the annual US VPN account late last month's renewal. :(

Just confirmed it too. It does show me US materials. Maybe perhaps, I signed up US Netflix last year and tried to sign-up again on the local offer but it showed me back to my profiles using the US site (with US VPN before) without problems and this time without the US VPN bypass.

so just to be sure siguro better to sign up on VPN/US first then use it as is without VPN.

baka magkatalo is yun charging, USD vs PHP conversion...

it is safe, been using my us netflix account for almost a year.

same contents? i've seen a thread here iba yun canada netflix sa US. cant remember where...

nope, us content is more extensive, but atleast the netflix exclusives are all included. netflix tend to add local or regional content as the service matures, so i expect more asian content in the months to come. i used my subscription in germany for months and the content there is different from the us and now here in the philippines as well. they have lots of german and european movies there for obvious reasons.

I guess having VPN gives user extra mile... And part security...

expected na mas maraming content yung US compared sa PH, pero at the price they offered it, at 370 halos same with US so medyo pricey.

Currently subscribed to Netflix US. I'm using my old ps3 for streaming. I just got an LG 4k TV but LG app store has no Netflix available for download. Heard that Samsung and Sony tv just release Netflix. Any idea if LG will.do the same?

my daughter who was complaining is 12 years old. she thought that she can watch new movies that are currently shown in theaters. i explained to her that the movie listings are always behind. she just said, "way lami" in bisaya, hehehe

Tried downloading the Netflix app from the PSN store and it shows "This service currently undergoing maintenance" but in the background there is a downloading icon. I can't enter or go back. Should I just wait or my PS3 hanged?

So many are complaining that we don't have the same content as the US. For me it's okay. Maybe they will add as the subscribers increase. I find it cheap. Got the 550 plan. I'm not complaining.

i guess the complain is we have the same price as the US but not the same content.

I have an LG Smart TV. It is connected with the internet the whole time.  When Netflix was introduced it just auto updated and I saw the Netflix app right away.

subscribed to the Netflix 30-day trial period ... I was hoping that it would have the shows from the HGTV channel and documentaries from Nat Geo ... mas ok pa rin contents available from private torrents
Lay low on AV

I am not expecting Netflix to have an on par database with torrent sources but I am hoping it to constantly improve its content through time.

Anyway, there is always something to watch that's interesting in its present selections.  Since the database is still limited, it is easier for me to choose what to watch than selecting a movie from my HDD.  :D

I was able to install the app finally in my PS3 connected to my PJ. Most of the audio is DD 5.1 but I am not complaining. Sarap!

Another article: http://www.finder.com/netflix-usa-vs-world-content

Only 15.04% of the US movie content and 11.04% of the US TV content is available for Netflix PH.

Here's the list of TV shows on Netflix Philippines
http://www.finder.com/ph/netflix-tv-shows

and the list of movies
http://www.finder.com/ph/netflix-movies

It's quite disappointing considering that the the subscription rate is similar to the US, yet content is quite pathetic.  Really puts sense into the the thought that torrents are revenge of the third world countries.
