YouTube and Netflix in the UK?

Hi Guys

I have decided to purchase the Western Digital TV Live Hub Digital Media Streamer 1TB -

I have been advised and have read (or mis-read!) that Netflix cannot be used in the UK, US only?  Is this correct?  Does YouTube and Netflix on this work in the UK?

Also can i connect both a standard AV Cable?  I have 2 tvs, but one does not have HDMI, only the yellow, white and red connections.

Your help is greatly appreciated!


Correct.  The Hub only supports NetFlix in US / Canada.

I don’t think there’s any issues with YouTube, though.

The Hub supports HDMI, Composite (Yellow) and Component (YPbPr) connections.

By the way, you are in the wrong forum… the Hub forums are here:

No problem with YouTube. If you want UK Netflix you need the WD Live streaming player gen3.

I just read this…
