Re: Netflix Super HD and alternatives

I signed up for a free trail at unblock-us.com. I can now get SuperHD on my roku via Comcast.

Since this is not a VPN service I dont need to worry about extra congestion points. I ran some tools to determine that the actual video payload data was coming directly from the Netflix CDN.

To use unblock-us.com all I had to do was change my DNS servers. I can confirm that this works with Roku and Comcast.

I don't need to pay an extra $4.99 a month for the 'unblock-us.com' service:


Open Connect on Sonic.net


Although I don't have a device which can utilize "Open Connect", I expect I won't be going through nLayer transit when I do.
