Using Netflix or similar while on holiday

Hi all. We're in the UK and planning a 2 month trip to Canada with iPads and iPhone. Does anyone know of a movie & TV service we can sign up to so we can watch shows while we're travelling (over wifi)? We currently have Amazon prime but FAQs says we have to be in the UK so I don't think it will work while we're away.

Netflix should work as you can use 'country changers' (not sure the real name for the IPaddress changing things) to make it appear as though you are in another country.
You will get local content, not UK content.

For Canada, this site will tell you latest things on Netflix. May be useful.

If you're already subscribed to Netflix, your UK account will work fine with Netflix Canada. If you want to continue seeing the far superior UK selection of movies and series, you need to fool Netflix into thinking your device is still geographically in the UK, but if you're happy to slum it with our limited selection, it'll just work seamlessly. We do the same in reverse every time we visit family back in the UK.

Thanks so much! What is the Netflix Canada kids selection like (for my 4 year old daughter!)?

I'd make a point of not taking home entertainment. I have fond memories of watching shopping channel in Swedish with dd2.
Especially as you're in English speaking countries you're hardly going to miss out on distractions for DD.

If you guys have to travel aboard than you do not need to worry about your Netflix USA. You can access easily with any VPN or smartdns services. I personally just got PureVPN christmas offer
