US netflix with vpn

Hello, not sure if this is the right place to ask, but please direct me if im posting in the wrong thread.

Recently i just bought a 4k tv, hence i wanted to subscribe to US netflix UHD, which means i needed a vpn. But then after much googling, notice that i need to set the vpn dns on my router, then only i can enjoy US netflix contents. But the downside is, my wifi speed will be terribly reduced. So hor, how ah? Can anyone advice mah? Want watch US content with VPN but dont want fibre speed to be affected.

Thanks thanks

Netflix now can detect some vpn or DNS routing services and will block.
Try out first become you sign up.

use smart dns service then, those will not affect internet connectivity speeds (it's not wifi speeds that is being affected by VPN).

DNS doesn't work anymore (since a yr ago). They also say DNS doesn't reduce your netflix speed; it's does.

Best VPN that works is ExpressVPN. You'll have to use a router to set up VPN for all connections, or if your TV has VPN setup (doubtful).

not true, you just need to find one that still works.

I've tried all the major ones. Some can work on browser, some can work on Android. Not seen one that works for everything like how VPN does. Plus they're quite a bit slower too.

I have ExpressVPN set up on my Asus router using their router firmware download.

you just haven't tried the right one, doesn't mean there isn't any out there today. and smart DNS service is not slower in streaming than VPN, VPN is where there is a potential slow down in streaming speed, whereas for smart DNS streaming speed is not affected (i.e. dependent on your ISP only).

Possible to share what's the one that is working then?

I get it technically that DNS is faster than VPN, and while technically true (and advertised as such), they weren't remotely true in my use cases.

This is one of the major ones that I have (lifetime membership some more), doesn't work for me, only for browser. Is it working for you? This was consistently slow for me too, similar situation as the link below:

working fine, configured via router, so works across all devices. no streaming speed issue, I regularly watch 4K HDR content on Netflix and Amazon.
