in the pull up menu you can set it to wherever you'd like

i think the auto connect feature just picks the best location?

The only publicly available VPNs that might have a chance at working on Netflix must be so obscure that almost nobody is using them. As soon as they catch wind of one they ban it.

I'm running Windows with the latest version of Plex. I have PIA running through the PIA client. I looked at trying to setup static ip vpn routes in Windows but that doesnt seem to be working. If anyone can shed some light that would be excellent!

Skinny does the private VPN you're using work with Netflix? I've used a few at this point, and none of them have worked (paid for a month sub to a number of them).

Nope I don't know of any that work. If they are out there they'll be quite protected!

If you think Canadian netflix is bad, be glad you don't have the HK version (actually I'm not sure, they both might suck equally)

Tried to connect to PIA today but when it's connected I can't access the internet, it just says "No internet", when I disconnect it my net works fine.
Anyone know what the issue is and how to fix it? I tried connecting on auto and to US California, all won't let me go online.

Try a different server. For me Singapore is way faster than their HK server

Torrenting is really slow for me even with port forwarding. I have tried multiple servers...

Without thinking just logged onto Netflix on my PC, which I run PIA's desktop client on, and I'm on US netflix! Picking up on some shows I was watching a few weeks ago on holidays..

How long will this last? Connected to US west

Not working for me. Proxy/Unblocker detected. PIA probably got a new block of IPs. Expect it to be blocked, soon. Enjoy it while it lasts

Hello, in case you need some up to date info about it, i wrote a guide about it : https://anonymster.com/best-vpn-china/

This has been tested within China, you will only find working solution in this article.

Good luck !
