I have just signed up for the free UnoTelly trial, it's all set up and working great however when I logged on to SkyGo this morning I got an audio message stating "content currently unavailable". A quick google search later and I found a sky support page stating that "Open" DNS servers would not work that that you need to use you ISP assigned ones to watch SkyGo content.
As I have changed the DNS server addresses at my router (Genius) to the UnoTelly ones I presume that this is what the problem is? 
Has anyone else encountered this?
Is there a workaround?

Had the same issue, only way around I could get it to work was to change the device used for sky to the NZ DNS numbers supplied by your ISP.

Yup same here. Unblock US DNS servers in router = unable to play SkyGo.

If you can, create a 2nd wireless connection on your device. On one, use the routers dns settings, on the other, manually assign dns from your ISP, when watching Netflix etc, use the router connection, when using skygo, use the other connection.

I have uno in my router and use dns jumper to switch the dns on the device I use to watch sky go. Windows 7 and 8 tablet, laptop and pc, works a treat laughing

Hi,

I found something from one of the Unotelly guys on here a month or 2 back, they recommended turning off the 'channel 2' option in your Unotelly options..worked for me! Give it a try.

Thats funny because I put in a support request and got a reply just yesterday say that you guys don't support it...

I tried turning off Channel 2 but that didn't work for me, I've got Unotelly DNS setup in my Vodafone router
