Streaming Netflix abroad?
January 28, 2014 8:23 AM Subscribe
My family and I are going to be out of the country for the next month, and we'd really like to watch the new season of House of Cards when it premiers on Valentines day. Does anybody have any advice on how to do this?
Right now, I'm planning to get a TP-LINK TL-MR3020
router, install OpenWRT (and OpenVPN?) on it to configure it to access a States-side VPN, and stream Netflix to a Chromecast in our hotel room. Will this work?

I've got some specific questions:
1. Will this setup (router + VPN + Chromecast) work?
2. Can anyone point me to instructions for setting up the router + VPN side of things?
3. Is there a better/simpler way to stream to the Chromecast?
