Streaming services are wildly popular right now, taking advantage of our insatiable need for entertainment. Music, movies and TV shows are available from a variety of companies, further encouraging cord-cutters to ditch their cable subscriptions. Sites like Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu, Amazon and others offers access to countless hours of content, though there’s one major roadblock for many users: all these streaming services are blocked in areas of the world outside the U.S. Geo-blocking, however, can be circumvented through the use of VPN services that allow you to appear as though you’re actually in the U.S. on a computer that is actually outside of America.

One company that seems to stand out from the various VPN providers available to users is Getflix, a service that will give you access to Netflix and other U.S.-based streaming sites you might want to access while traveling (or if you’re a foreign customer).

Getflix essentially acts as a VPN, letting you connect to the streaming sites of your choice. The company says it’s able to offer faster streaming than regular VPN services by rerouting only the traffic needed so you can enjoy top Internet speeds. The service supports more than 100 streaming channels you might be interested in, including Netflix.

Getflix isn’t a free service, and it starts at $3.95 per month or $33.18 per year. For a limited time, however, lifetime access to the service can be purchased for $39, which is just $6 more than what it normally costs for a single year of Getflix service. Check this post out for more details about this special Getflix promotion.
