Contrary to what the name suggests, Getflix does not bypass Netflix’s geo-restrictions. However, it does unblock a number of other streaming services, like Hulu, Amazon, and BBC. But before you get too excited, you should know that the speeds are super slow, which makes video streaming almost impossible.
So it doesn’t matter how attractive the company’s name might sound to a movie lover, this VPN isn’t fit for watching online videos. But if you want basic browsing, it can help you out.
It offers a 14-day free trial and you don’t have to enter your payment details for that. After the trial, you’ll need to move to a paid plan. The plans are affordable and you can cancel anytime. There are 5 plans – monthly, 3-monthly, 6-monthly, yearly, and 2-yearly.
Installation involves some extra steps. Instead of taking the user to a signup form, the website asks for your email address and sends the signup form link via email.
When it comes down to it, the speeds are too slow to stream. This might be why their rates are so affordable.
Speed determines how fast content uploads, so if you're torrenting or streaming, you want the speed to be somewhat identical to your regular internet speed. Since a VPN encrypts your data, it usually takes a bit longer to send your data back and forth, which can slow down your connection. However, if your ISP deliberately slows down your connection (also known as throttling) a VPN might increase your internet speed. Testing a VPN is somewhat pointless because new servers pop up and affect speed. Your speed can also differ according to your location, so your speed test might not match ours. Having said that, we tested the speed in numerous locations to provide you with the average.
User experience is pretty frustrating. The sign-up process starts with providing an email address on which the link to the sign-up form is sent. Once the sign-up process is completed, you get a free trial.
There are no dedicated apps for Windows and Mac but you can configure the VPN using their step-by-step guides. It can be installed on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo Wii, Apple TV, Roku, and WD TV Live.
They claim that you cannot access Netflix on the free trial, which makes the user think that if they sign up for a paid plan, they’ll be able to use Netflix. However, Getflix doesn’t bypass the streaming giant’s VPN block. In fact, the speeds are so slow that it’s frustrating trying to watch online videos on other websites as well.
We personally test the customer support team of every VPN we review. This means asking technical question through the live chat feature (where applicable) and measuring the response time for email questions. Whether you need to connect to a specific server, change your security protocol, or configure a VPN on your router, finding a VPN with quality customer support should be important to you.
