Hi, I'm from the UK & my friends have told me that if you change your Xbox 360 DNS settings to a U.S DNS, for other streaming apps like Netflix etc you access the U.S version of the app including shows Netflix doesn't have the rights to show in the UK.

I am not saying I will do this or support this method however, I am curious if it would have a similar affect on Crunchyroll so you could watch shows you couldn't otherwise like Kill la Kill etc ?

Sorry if a topic like this already exists or it's a stupid question.

Well, it goes against the Terms of Service for the site to misrepresent your location like that to work around licensing issues.. and I'm pretty sure it breaks several laws, too, so I would highly recommend not doing this (including for Netflix and other sites). Going to lock & close the thread because of that, but please feel free to PM me if you'd like to talk more.
