Can you get US Netflix on a Google Nexus 7?

Before I buy a Google Nexus 7: can you watch US Netflix on it?

Netflix check region from where you are connecting. Underlying hardware is irrelevant. If you are located in UK and trying to watch US Netflix it will not work on any device.

In order to watch US Netflix you need to have a US based IP or use US based DNS server.

Yes you can, get a VPN (useful for other things too) and connect through a US server.

matt, I thought only terrorists use VPN? Or was that "tourists"?

VPNs, like guns, cars and knives, have both legitimate and illegitimate purposes...but I'm sure you knew that already ;).

Though these days there appears to be no link between something having a legitimate purpose and access to that thing not being banned or severely restricted, purely for the benefit of large, multi-billion dollar corporations (see: BitTorrent downloads).
