Smart DNS provider turned VPN provider.
Getflix began life as a Smart DNS service, and while that remains its primary offering, it now also offers VPN services to all subscribers. The Smart DNS service allows you to access most of the world’s leading streaming services just by changing the DNS server address on your home devices. However, Netflix, once a staple of the service (and its namesake), is no longer listed as supported and did not work when we tested it.
While its Smart DNS services are up to scratch, however, its VPN services are not. They are fast enough — 9.3Mbps to Los Angeles when we tested it — but there is no client for it at all. You have to use the VPN services built into Windows/Android/iOS or use the third-party OpenVPN client. If you even want to change location, you have to go to Getflix’s website to look up server addresses, then manually change it in the VPN configuration. It’s not good, and is probably best seen as a free bonus to the Smart DNS service rather than a viable VPN service in its own right.
