1) How To Watch Netflix In Malaysia : Don’t Be Illegal

Some of you might have been to our local Malaysian forum, Lowyat, and find some vendor peddling so-called really cheap Netflix accounts. In reality, we rather advice against that as it is not just illegal, but you might get yourself banned by Netflix for swindling the system.

Though Netflix allows you to have 2 simultaneous streaming televisions for just USD 12.99/month, running Netflix accounts in different households (while still using the original account), is illegal. By supporting those who are selling such a service, you’re depriving Netflix of income and supporting our pirates

  1. Hi Leo!
    Thanks for your article, I have finally managed to use Netflix at home and terminated astro service (expensive with 2 decoders). Great part is I don’t have to buy any additional hardware as I do it at both my smart TV (LG and Samsung) replacing both astro decoders previously. One problem that I face is that I got HD streaming on my LG but only SD on my Samsung. Been trying to solve it eg. direct LAN connection instead of wifi etc. but unsuccessful. Do you know the possible cause or any good websites that I can refer to? Been googling around with no success. Thanks in advance for your insights etc.

Got an idea? =) Drop us your thought here
