Since I would have high speed internet in the apartment I was renting, I thought that my Netflix Instant Viewing hours would be great for movie viewing. It turns out that this is not possible from outside the US. Here is the message I get when accessing Instant Viewing while logged on to my Netflix account in Argentina:
Instant viewing is not available outside the US
Our systems indicate that the computer you are using is not located within the 50 United States or District of Columbia. The instant viewing feature is available only on computers in those locations.
I bet that it's a combination of concerns over network speed and limited rights outside of the U.S. I wonder if it would work through a proxy server or some other trick?
