Necro post, but someone may find this helpful.
Opera uses a proxy rather than a traditional VPN tunnel.
I have Opera VPN and Netflix working fine, and if not for Opera's VPN i wouldn't be able to watch Netflix at all. (My ISP actively blocks Netflix)
I do have the 'WebRTC Leak Prevent' extension installed which may be a factor contributing to my success.
