Hi folks
on W10 no problem accessing NETFLIX content via VPN and US server for US NETFLIX content (on Nordvpn - usually excellent)

On W11 I get message from NETFLIX " You appear to have some blocking or Proxy server " so it won't logon.

Using Icelandic or even Albanian servers from NordVPN allows NETFLIX without the message from USA servers :

What gives here -- has the US suddenly started introducing controls on Netflix for users of W11. !!! That alone would make me forget W11 in spite of the fact on other issues it's slick, fast and OK)..

A good way to check if the servers are working correctly is to logon to the server of choice, then use Amazon Browser to select ustvgo (https//www.ustvgo.tv) and choose a channel.

Anybody else got similar problems.

@z3r010

That fixed it !!!!! (of course you still need legal NETFLIX sub so this isn't a "Bypass") in case anybody is thinking that way.
