Ah I wasn't aware of the Netflix thing, that would explain my experience then.

I guess for anyone watching a lot on tablet, which I would, it should be fine.

I’ll give it another go after Christmas and see how I go with one of them.
Just to update, managed to get this to work today. Like plenty of posters on here have said, just sign up for a month on IRL Netflix, then cancel immediately, and after the month is up, get on Turkey Netflix and restart membership. I was trying to alter payment type, and that’s what was messing things up, it will fail if you do that. Once you’ve a payment type approved on IRL Netflix, it will use that to restart the membership under Turkish Netflix

Thanks to all the posters on here for helping out previously, I got there in the end!

Sorry for taking the thread off topic but how did you manage to set up an account with email and password? It seems to tie it to the phone number when I try to do it, which is shared with everyone else using the number.

I didn't do it, you would have to ask that Andy fella how he got on, I'm dubious about doing it because I need confirmation from someone that has already done it if you still get the same content in your home country and 4k dolby vision as that is important to me, on the Indian website the top tier is only FHD.
Sorry I can't help, you would have to take the plunge and find out for yourself. I don't think you would have any issues with the security of your account though as I pay for disney plus and never get text messages from them so I think it is just for the 4 digit code for signup which doesn't give out any account details.

And I don't think you start a new account, just do it on your existing when you renew?

Currently trying with Windscribe. Still getting the same error "There was an error processing your payment information. Please check that all fields are filled out correctly and try again." It's also asking me to verify a Turkish phone number

Did you do the following?

Quote:
You need to sign up to a plan from Ireland for a month, you may be able to get a free trial for this, cancel plan before month is up, during the Irish signup make sure to add a mobile number as well as your chosen payment method,an Irish debit or credit card seems to be the best for that but Curve and to a lesser extent Revolut sometimes work.

When the plan expires just use a VPN to sign into your existing netflix account from Turkey and you will then get the option to restart your original plan.

I had an Irish account, but I don't think I had linked my phone number to it. Will I have to get a month of Irish netflix first then?

Edit: when I go into account settings on my cancelled netflix, it lets me put in an Irish number but I'm not getting a verification text

Don't think you need a verification text when adding number to Irish account.

My PTSB card I'd been using on my Turkish account just expired so Netflix is asking for an updated payment method. Which method is currently working for anybody who's done this in the past few days?

Is Turkey still the best or are people having better luck with Argentina these days? I also have revolut and curve if that helps.

Thanks ðŸ˜

FYI - The Argentinian govt lashed on a sizeable tax a few months ago. My most recent payment (for the 4 screen option) converted to €7.18

I used N26 (MasterCard Debit) and it worked fine. I suspect any card would work ok though, as long as you sign up to IRL Netflix for a month, and then switch over to TKY Netflix

Yeah, I’d read on here that ARG was gone expensive, so I went with TKY. 4 screen pack converted to €4.66

Got it to work, as above. Messed up the first month.
I tired renewing on my laptop with Keepsolid VPN, had cleared my cookies but prices came up in Euro.
Tried on my iPhone using Safari and VPN and worked perfectly.
Massive saving. Thanks OP.

Thanks to BA I have
  • Netflix UHD for approx. 4-5 euro a month
  • HULU basic for 1.75
  • HBOMAX for approx 14

Around 20 euro for the lot PM.
