    Netflix channel on overseas Wii

    Hey guys, I've been scouring the web for a couple of days now, trying to get a straight answer on the simplest way to achieve this and have had very limited luck. I have an Australian Wii and I'm wanting to install the Netflix channel on it. I've tried just installing the straight WAD of the channel, but all I get is a black screen when I try and launch it. The only way I've read about it being achieved is through use of SNEEK, but that looks rather time-consuming and complicated. However, if that's the only way, that's what I'll have to do. Has anybody had any luck installing the Netflix channel on their international Wii and have it working and, if so, how did you do it? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    From Netflix;

    You will need a valid U.S. mailing address to sign up for Netflix. Also, you will only be able to watch instantly if you are in the 50 United States or Washington, D.C. It looks like you are outside the United States. If this is incorrect, please contact your Internet provider for help. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

    I should clarify, I'm located within the US, but I brought my console with me, so access to Netflix is no problem.

    Download the Netflix channel from the shopping channel, then setup your account.
    If you need to update the shopping channel look HERE!

    You need to update the ios used by the netflix channel, then it should work. If not, follow my softmod guide, install the 4.1u mod pack and region change to USA. You need to delete your shop account before the region change or shop will not work.

    If you updated and it still did not work... Then look for a nintendo wii serial spoofer, and hide behind a proxy. That will do it for sure! Netflix might not allow foreign devices to connect, but I am not sure.

    Did you sign up for your netflix account outside of the country?
