Opera VPN & Netflix??

  • Hello,

    Does the VPN work with Netflix?

    If so, how many countries does it support or can anyone confirm it works for France, Finland, Canada and the USA?

    Also, I have a new AppleTV and tried to Airplay Netflix (with and without Astrill) on Safari from a MacBook running Sierra but it won't play video claiming HDCP incompatibility. However, the TV is HDCP compatible.

    Will Opera be a solution to this issue?

    Regards

  • Hi @rooksaw, as far as I know Netflix has pretty much immediately found a way to detect Opera's VPN and currently blocks it.

    The HDCP incompatibility is due to rights issues (...like the VPN blocking, actually), the issue probably isn't that your TV is not HDCP compatible but that Netflix doesn't want you to transmit the video directly over Airplay to your AppleTV. Only running Netflix directly on your AppleTV will fix this.
