TurboFlix | Price, plans and features

tfWant unbridled access to the Netflix library? TurboFlix might just have something for you.

About TurboFlix

As the second half of their name might suggest, TurboFlix has one very specific streaming service it’s targeting (Can you guess what it is?). They’re all about you and your Netflix library, and making sure that you have access to just about everything that Netflix offer, anywhere in the world.

It’s an attractive offer, one that will appeal to many Australian users. They even have a snappy, Michael Bay style trailer on their website that tells you everything you need to know about the service with a few glorious explosions thrown in for good measure.


There are many legitimate uses for a VPN. However, the legality of using one to access geographically restricted content is a bit of a grey area. While you're not likely to attract the attention of the Australian Government, you do run the risk of having your VPN or streaming subscription cancelled. There is also the chance that a copyright holder may want to pursue legal action if you're found to be accessing that content in an unlicensed region. Keep in mind that the very nature of a VPN masks your IP and prevents your online activity, so it's not for us to say if and how the copyright holders would be able to identify you if you do choose to access their content without the proper licensing. Here at finder.com.au, we do not encourage internet browsing activity outside the law, we only aim to compare the services available to Australians.

TurboFlix pricing and plans

Here is the weird thing - TurboFlix pricing and plans aren’t actually listed on their website. But, they do show the prices for 'gift plans,' which we've listed below. The cost of a single month's subscription is US$4.99.

What are the benefits of using TurboFlix?

If Netflix, Hulu, Amazon or any of the many other global video streaming sites protected by geo-blocking are what you’re after, then TurboFlix’s service is designed and marketed for you. TurboFlix is also available on a huge variety of devices, consoles and Smart TVs. That being said, nearly every VPN offers this service, compatibility and much more.

How do I setup TurboFlix?

Once registering for the free trial, TurboFlix will send you over an email with a link to the member's page, where you’ll find user manuals. And, if you’re looking to set up Turboflix on consoles or mobile devices, then fear not, because the website also provides a ‘Setup Wizard’ for just about any device you can think of.

What operating systems can you use TurboFlix on?

TurboFlix will run on just about any gadget in your household. From games consoles, smart TVs, set top boxes to Blu Ray players, and, of course, PCs and tablets.

TurboFlix pros and cons

Pro

  • Tailored for the Netflix experience
  • Good compatibility and setup guides for a vast range of devices, including iOS, Android and the often neglected Windows Phone.

Cons

  • Legal trouble brewing between Netflix and TurboFlix
  • Offers nothing that other, more reliable and trustworthy VPNs don't already
  • Website withholds important information

What is a VPN and how does it work?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a simple internet application that, essentially, creates a private network just for you. It was originally created and is still used to allow businesses to access their internal computer system safely from external locations, but more recently private Internet users have also found a use for VPNs. A VPN masks Internet browsing by hiding your Internet Protocol (IP) address, behind another IP address, often in another region of the world. This allows for a safer internet experience, no tracking and (as the TurboFlix name might have given away) access to restricted content from around the world that is otherwise geo-blocked.

Frequently asked questions

The name is not just a coincidence. Yes, one of the services that TurboFlix aims to connect its users with is Netflix services from other locations. However, you cannot watch Netflix anywhere unless you’re signed up to Netflix. So if you wanted to watch Netflix US through TurboFlix, getting TurboFlix would not be enough. You would also have to subscribe to Netflix US.

There are many global streaming services that will become available to you once you begin using a VPN, among these is BBC iPlayer. For a full list of channels available check the website of whichever provider piques your interest.

You don’t need a VPN to access Australian Netflix since we are already in Australia. But you could still use a VPN if you wanted to protect your privacy online.

      Hi Kevin,

      Turboflix is a service that allows you to access international Netflix libraries using your own Netflix account. Turboflix does not include a Netflix membership, you will have to register for a Netflix account separately. Check out our guide to signing up to Netflix.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
