So I got a free 6 month promo code with a spark sim card so though I'd give it a go. Couldn't use my aussie visa debit so had to use the other half's kiwi visa - no problems, all signed up and go to watch something but it says no joy pal - you're not in UnZud.

 

I use getflix to get netflix and hulu etc so this is obviously the problem - is there an easy fix to get around this? I don't want to start messing with DNS's every time I want to watch neon (there's only a couple of shows I want to watch anyway).

I'm not sure how much this helps, but I have SkyGo and things enabled on my DNS4Me setup, and it seems to work, but I'm also not using the DNS wholesale, but instead I'm using a Hosts file from them.

I use Unotelly and cant get Neon to work even with Unotelly 'switched off'

 

I don't care as Neon doesn't interest me so can't be bothered trying to work out what the problem is, but pees the wife off

the bigger question here is why are Spark giving away Neon subscriptions with their sim cards when they own Lightbox?

 

 

 

(especially since Neon is so utterly inferior to Lightbox.  I mean, I could understand the appeal of giving away Netflix subscriptions as a superior product, but surely nobody cares about Neon enough to make it worth bundling in with stuff)

Neon is going the way of Quickflix, I reckon, and I've got a feeling they're betting that people will either use the service and like it, or forget they had the service and forget to cancel it after the 6 months ends.

quite funny cause they have a marketing agreement, quickflix sent all it's users and former uses a code for an extra month (so two in total) trial.

I found that switching Unotelly back to DHCP and then restarting the browser fixed the issue.
