Think she knew my credit card was not from Turkey. She told me to go to Turkey and try it from there!
Anyone get an Irish credit card to work through the chat?

So the Netflix payment failed last week and the service stopped. I jumped onto my Turkey via VPN and tried to switch over to my revolut card, but no joy. Also tried switching to KBC and Ulster bank debit cards but again no joy. Then I turned off VPN and tried all cards again, but still no luck.

Then I tried the live chat and told them I was having issues trying to pay.
She asked what country I was in...I said Turkey.
She asked if I was using a VPN...I said No...I was of course logged into the chat session via VPN to turkey.
Then up popped a form, I banged in my revolut details and payment goes through straight away in Turkish Liras!

Did I just get lucky??

Seems like you did! I had the exact same scenario, contacted support chat and they told me it was just a "generic decline" and they didn't know why it was happening. Nothing they could do, they said!

That's strange as I was also told it's a 'generic decline', but they went ahead and popped up the payment form within chat which allowed the revolut payment to go through.

Not sure what to make of it, but it does show that it's possible to switch to a different revolut card.

Just got an email from Netflix saying that Argentina has now introduced a tax on Netflix of 35%. It says I will now see this on my card asa separate payment.

Think I’ll cancel and checkout where is cheaper now. Anyone more current cheapest alternative country?

You seem to be taking a more moral stance. I’m just looking for a cheaper subscription.

I tried using netflix with a vpn but it won't let me. Netflix seems to know and tells me it won't work with a vpn on.
How do I get around this?

For anyone else wondering I’ve just just checked current Turkish prices. 4K is 42TL (€4.67 on XE.Com). 1080 is 29.90TL (€3.34 on XE.Com).

I’ll be switching from Argentina to Turkey now that Argentina has an extra 35% tax.

In answer to the last comment try a different VPN. I’m using vpn unlimited on my iPhone and it works fine.
Edit...
Re reading your question if you mean you’re trying to watch with a VPN rather than add a subscription with one then I don’t know that answer.

Turkey!

41.99 TRY for the 4 device UHD plan = €4.87 (at time of charge last month, always goes up /down a bit) - some bargain versus the Irish plan.

No, not unless you keep your vpn connected to turkey while watching it. Vpn is only needed for sign up. You'll get the content of whatever country you are in.

You get content based on the location your viewing from (Ireland) - you only connect to Turkey to sign up.

The only caveat to keep in mind is if you pick a non-EU country (Turkey), you aren't classed as a EU27 subscriber, so cross border portability doesn't apply. For the most part it's fine given how global Netflix is going with content.

(and as people aren't traveling at the moment...)

Can anyone recommend a VPN to use with Turkey Netflix, there are so many options, and some are 3 years upfront for the lowest monthly price, eg VPN unlimited.

Just download the Speedify app and set it to Turkey, sign up, then uninstall Speedify and away you go.
