Currently I can't watch Netflix while using TorGuard. Other VPNs have found a way around this, is TorGuard working on one?

There are VERY few VPN's which work with netflix without having to purchase a residential IP, Yes there are a couple which work with Netflix but they can be unreliable at best as Netflix constantly Adds the IP's to a blacklist. 9/10 do not work with netflix without having to purchase a dedicated/Residential IP. 

Without purchasing a Dedicated/Residential IP to access Netflix it is simply unreliable as netflix has 99% of VPN ip's on the blacklist so to get netflix to work a VPN has to use a FRESH ip which is not blacklisted yet which is not easy. The only Reliable way to watch Netflix now "from any Vpn" is to get a Residential Streaming IP. That being said some VPN's may occasionally work "unreliably" with netflix without having to do this but again it is unreliable and there is constant downtime as Ip's get constantly blacklisted.

Technically Torguard may be able to Add a Netflix Streaming server for everyone to use but i am sure they have not done this simply because it is not viable... The servers IP would just get blacklisted and stop working and they would constantly have to add new Fresh Ip's to keep it working which would be a large financial drain and users would complain about the downtime everytime it stopped working it is simply not Viable. The most Viable way to stream Netflix with a VPN is to get a residential IP Addon to stream it and As far as i know "only" you would be using that ip so it should not get blacklisted which makes this method more reliable and viable. 

Torguard is by Far the best VPN in terms of Privacy/Support/Reliability/Options/Price , Basically everything about Torguard is positive.

You need to buy a streaming or residential ip if we are talking US or UK, then that will fix your problem

bollocks...there are many vpns that work with Netflix, without having to purchase a dedicated, residential or some such other IP to access Netflix.

The other vpn's use smart dns. When your computer calls for Netflix the the dns routes you to another vpn server that is set up for Netflix.

I happen to have both smart dns and OpenVPN from one of my vpn services that work with Netflix-100% uptime since I started using it in 2013. I rarely use smart DNS as the OpenVPN servers work with Netflix. The other vpn's u refer too may or may not use smart dns but a lot of vpn's provide vpn servers that work with netlix.

If your using their dns server then you probably have smart dns running when you connect to the openvpn server.  They usually don't tell you its smart dns. Set your OpenVpn to use Googles dns server and see if Netflix still works. Doubtful.

The problem is they reroute you for Netflix but not for other things like banks or online shopping. This is Why I use the residential IP. No issues with any site.

Do you also run OpenVpn on the router or do you  use their app? If you're running everything on the router Id love to give them a try. I've tried many other vpn's with no luck. Maybe yours is better. The one thing that bothers me is the loss of anonymity with a dedicated IP.

No, NO I do not have smart dns running...I have an OpenVPN ovpn file configured on my router set to use Quad9 dns (NOT the vpn DNS), I have any and all devices that use netflix thru the vpn and USA netflix streams 100% uptime. Smart dns also work's but with USA netflix ONLY. With one of my vpn services,... Canada, UK, Thailand, USA, and others have servers working with Netflix.

I use asus routers all flashed with Merlin and I use OpenVPN only.

Would you mind telling me the VPN that you use? I'll give them a try. I stand corrected.

Torguard is located in FL and subject to US jursdiction and the 5 eyes, but, if all u require from a dedicated IP is to circumvent some geo-blocked content then who really cares.
