Netflix is not accessible in India due to licensing and other reasons.
A lot of people (including expats) want to access Netflix, Hulu and other services in India (or other geo-blocked or geo-fenced territories).
Thanks to Unotelly for their DNS/VPN service which enables watching/consuming geo-blocked content including Netflix’s.
I have used Unotelly for couple of years. Trust me, it is convenient and better use of time to go for Unotelly when you really want to watch some shows and films.
Wondering, why couldn’t I build my own system to do that?
Just so you know, as a geek, I have successfully set up and run my own VPS (with SNI/non-SNI DNS Proxy and VPN), but not everyone can or prefers to do that. The goal was to watch some shows and films, but I got drifted away while building my own system, and ended up spending a lot of time (and money – vps fee) in setting things up than watching shows/films.
I think, Netflix would be officially launched in India in couple of years. For those who can’t wait, why not use Unotelly?
Web Hosting in India (with VSNL, Tata, etc) has not been affordable for most of us (startups, bloggers, small-medium-enterprises). Hence, for years, we have been hosting our data and application on shared and dedicated servers outside of India for different reasons (cost, availability, uptime, etc), but at the cost of higher latency (slow speed/performance).
Fortunately, E2E Networks, a startup by Tarun Dua provides very reliable, fast and less expensive hosting (VPS and Dedicated Servers) services in India. All your data/applications is hosted securely in India and you get unbelievable low latency.
Check out some of the sites, which are running on E2ENetworks:
Disclaimer: Tarun Dua is a friend of mine and ex-colleague (Mixercast and Yahoo!). He is known for his knowledge and experience in data-centre, bandwidth, performance, scalability and servers. Whatever, I have written above is completely my own view based on my experience with E2E Networks. My company is planning to use E2E Networks’ services for our Indian customers.
