    • Margaret, you could have watched Netflix in Spain for the last five years at least, and you can even switch between Netflix regions, such as UK/US, very easily using software costing a few euros a month. UK television also still works fine, via satellite, if you get a dish realign and a new box.

    • Kodi is amazing, but it does have a steep learning curve to install and maintain. Also, its legality is in question as it streams torrents in real time. Kodi does not have its own content. Netflix is removing a lot of its “blockbuster” film content soon as film license contracts come to an end, but its own-brand series are very good luckily.

  1. Tim, Netflix is free on a 30 day trial. The service in Spain has content in English (original version) and in Spanish. If you use a “Smart DNS” service you can change Netflix region to get UK/US and rest of world content too, so a much wider choice.

    • Thanks Fred – I’ve tried all that smart DNS stuff; and in the end, it was just too unreliable; and if you’re worried about legality of Kodi, you probably don’t want to think too hard where your $5 a month is going. I’d rather be legit, but doesn’t look like Neflix is going to solve that problem any time soon.

  2. Each to their own Tim. I’ve used Smart DNS now for nearly three years and not one bit of down time. The biggest obstacle in Spain remains slow and unreliable bandwidth.
