Probably not.

The netflix server will see where the connection is coming from and block you out. I suggest giving them a call and ask directly.

Can't you use a US based proxy?

Yea, if you can route through a US proxy that isn't blocked (or if you set up your own) that should get around the "restricted to US IP address" issues.

^ This. When I can't check my email to write my wife because someone is streaming a video, downloading I-tunes, etc that's just inconsiderate of others.

I wasn't able to run streaming video anywhere in Afghanistan, even on their supposidly "high speed" service when it was available. Maybe things have changed since I was there in '09

We tried to get Netflix at Manas and if I remember correct a message prompt saying since wew weren't in CONUS it wasn't going to work. It didn't matter anyways because our Comm guys got us better movies on their TV channel.

Do what has been suggested, get a good portable hard drive, fill it up with movies and leave some room for more when you can trade movies.

You'll find media servers out there on NIPR all across Afghanistan. While I was out there, we found one that had about 10 terabytes of data, like 4 TB of movies, 4TB of TV shows, and another 2TB of music. Much easier and more complete than Netflix.

Not going to work. The haji indian wi-fi network is too slow. They even blocked x-box live, not just via an x-box but the website to login to.

Kandahar was too slow to get anything in the barracks. However, my coworker was able to get youtube and such on his work computer, when hardwired to the connection. For my nook, I just burned a bunch of DVDs onto a portable hard drive and used my computer to watch or move to the nook.
