I'm off on my travels for 6 months at the end of the month & want to take advantage of a Netflix account and watch a load of series that I've not otherwise had the opportunity to. However, Netflix doesn't have a service in Africa so the advice they've given me is to set my DNS proxy, or something, so that it appears I'm in the UK so I can access the content.
A quick Google search reveals guides to changing the settings for specific devices and one or two websites that appear to be some sort of pay service to give you the appearance your computer's in the UK (UnblockUs, Overplay - about $5 a month).
I'm a bit of a technophobe and don't want to start fiddling too much with something I'm not sure about. Any of the more tech-savvy types on here give me a walkthrough/talkthrough in layman's terms of how to set up my computer so that I can access UK content from Kenya? Failing that, is it worth forking out 5 bucks a month for something like UnblockUs?
