Unlike other VPN services, GetFlix is not its own standalone service. Instead, it’s offered to GetFlix SmartDNS subscribers for free. As the name suggests, it’s meant more for accessing movies, TV shows, and music only available in other regions. Let’s see if it lives up to its promise.
When compared to other VPN services, GetFlix is on the lower end of the price scale for both monthly and annual subscriptions. With that said, you’re not getting as many features.
GetFlix supports a wide range of platforms -- from the standard Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android to more uncommon devices such as Roku, Apple TV, Nintendo, Xbox, PlayStation, and WD TV Live.
Sadly, there are no browser extensions.
If you just use SmartDNS, installation is quick and easy. Find the native app, install it, and you’re ready to go.
To use VPN features, you need to download a separate VPN client -- such as OpenVPN. GetFlix provides detailed instructions on how to get it up and running. While the setup and installation weren’t necessarily difficult, reviewers still found the additional steps annoying.
Once installed, the client is easy to use with most settings available in a few clicks. However, customization is limited.
You can connect three devices on a single subscription but you must connect to a different GetFlix VPN network on each.
At such a low price, GetFlix doesn’t offer a ton of features. But you get some nice perks, including:
As you might expect, GetFlix SmartDNS allows you to unblock geo-restricted content -- most notably Hulu and KODI.
You can choose from four different security protocols:
GetFlix has a no logging policy and only collects what users wish to share.
With that said, they encourage users to share information as it allows for better customer support. They claim they will never share your information with third parties without asking you first.
When just using the SmartDNS function, critics noticed DNS leaks. This means your information isn’t as secure as you might hope.
Reviewers experienced mixed results with some getting speedy transfer rates and others noticing significant latency.
Those who had decent speed were only using SmartDNS without a VPN. The VPN Lab explains, “... VPNs always tend to slow down the connection at least a little bit.”
GetFlix offers a knowledge base as your first line of support. And it covers most issues you might face.
Can’t find an answer to your problem? You can also send through a customer support ticket or use their 24/7 online live chat.
Overall, GetFlix is a great and affordable option if the only thing you want to do is unblock geo-restricted content. If you want more security options, you’re better off looking elsewhere.
TechRadar sums up opinions well saying, “Getflix is cheap and the Smart DNS works well as an unblocker for streaming sites (though not Netflix), but long-distance VPN performance is poor and overall there are better deals around.”

Getflix boasts to unlock over 500 global channels, and it’s a decent product for global entertainment. The difference between the trial and paid versions seems to be only the Netflix US availability. As far as the price goes, It is cheaper than its more established rivals, including ExpressVPN, Cybe...

Getflix is a simple Smart DNS service designed to geo-spoof popular streaming platforms and grant you access to better regional versions through IP and DNS shenanigans. In other words, this iteration does not offer any security measures apart from hiding the location of your device.

Getflix is good for those looking to stream TV and movies, due to the fact that their primary product is DNS, which comes with VPN when purchased. Their price is more than fair, and their speeds are great for streaming. It is known that Netflix is not particularly easy to access, but GetFlix says th...

I would recommend using Getflix for anyone who wants to access US Netflix from outside the US. This VPN would not leak your IP or DNS, but most importantly it would not store your usage logs. It has good and decent speed which is crucial when you are streaming Netflix content.
- Mike Williams, TechRadar
Could be a cheap way to unblock US Netflix or similar streaming sites, but the VPN is too underpowered for serious use.
