That way, you get access to a much larger selection of content:
Netflix UK: 3429 movies/shows
Netflix USA: 7169 movies/shows
Some of them are on both, so the total available is 8907 movies/shows :-)
It doesn't matter what your address is or where your card is registered, they only look at the IP address you connect from to decide where you are and the VPN connection makes me appear to be connecting from San Clemente, California!
Those using a VPN be prepared to lose the lot.
