    Had the exact same problem with my apple TV. logged a ticket to which they told me only works on PC/MAC at the moment. They're working on a fix (this sounded like an excuse so as for me to signup), to which I asked them how long it would take.

    They couldn't give me timeframe so I take it this service is a dud for US Netflix on Apple TV

    Anyone still using Getflix? I'm having trouble with Netflix on my LG WebOS Smart TV. It worked on some days but now it's just horrible. I added static routes and I'm using the Jhb and Brazil DNS servers.

    After a while of having used their service, I must say their L2 support isn't as speedy as I'd have hoped it to be.

    You only need the two 8.8. addresses blocked.

    Not sure why you're using Brazil. Try one closer to the source. I use US East.

    TBH though if their support wasn't so good I'd probably try a different service but these guys are always quick to respond (via email).

    I have a question about the 8.8 addresses. Since they are run by the big G and use geolocation to direct you to the closest DNS server, etc if I set them as my only DNS servers for a VPN tunnel connecting to the UK, would these streaming services still work? The thinking I have is that a client inside the tunnel makes a request to 8.8 , G.dns sees the address is from the UK, which means all records returned would be for the UK based CDN servers of Netflix,.et Al, which means I would see those catalogs and not the SA one?

    Or do the netflix, iPlayer apps have dedicated hardcoded DNS servers of their own written inside the app?

    Thx

    The catalogs of movies and TV shows that you can see on the US and UK versions of netflix are far bigger than what we see in SA , not due to the fault of Netflix, but more to entrenched players like monochoice who signed up distribution deals a long time ago which means it needs to be seen on DSTV first.

    Example. House of cards is a 'netflix' sponsored show, but in SA you can't see the latest seasons because monochoice somehow has the rights. - if you use another netflix region - you can.

    Having been a Netflix user since they started up in the UK, I want my UK catalog even though I live in SA now.

    Cool thing about netflix. Your account works globally so if you were in the US and opened the app you could view anything they show in the US, but be sure you finish watching it there. If you come back to SA and the movie is not in our catalog here, you won't be able finish it, until you go back to the US 😉

    My suggesting that he blocks the 8.8. addresses is for people using a dns service, vpn services do not require the block. If you're using a vpn all of your traffic is going to appear to originate from that country anyway.

    Many/most/all of the apps have google's dns addresses hardcoded into them.

    Catalogues differ from country to country and it's based on physical location, not where the account is.

    hi guys just need some help on behalf of a friend

    I don't have netflix, but a friend of mine has it on her win10 DEL i3 laptop and is not working - it used to apparently, so I'm assuming that some recent win10 update has screwed it up?

    I had a look at it for her and it seems to be the windows firewall blocking netflix. works if FW is disabled

    I checked the firewall and netflix is in the list but still won't work if the FW is active.

    as I'm not that clued up with IT, so is there something I can do to get it working for her?

    it works on her cell phone perfectly

    thanks again
