Enabling hidden Smart tv features on non smart tv

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought a Samsung LCD TV back in 2010 (LN55C610) and at one point i had asked a SAMSUNG technician to come check up on my TV because i suspected that something was wrong with it (turned out to be nothing). During his visit, he had went in a hidden menu to see information on my TV and he mentioned to me that my TV was actually an American TV (im guessing an American model) and that if i were to fake my ISP to one in the USA i would be able to get Netflix, Hulu and other apps. I looked this up on the internet and i couldnt find a single trace of this being true. Im suspecting that he may have mistaken it for anothing model, but at the same time he probably wouldnt of mentioned it if he wasnt sure. Has anyone heard of that for my TV model or any other one?

It might be possible if you VPN to a server in the country you select, no guarantees though.

Items you pay for like Netflix and Hulu+ will probably still be tied to your region due to your account setup.

Its weird as if you setup some place like europe you'll get channels/apps like BBC. It wouldn't work though as it will say its not your region with just a internet connection.

At the end of your model is it a XAA? That should be an american model.
