Not really. Just one session with one page view and that was a day before this thread started. Perhaps just one check at the UnoTelly discount thread? Who knows.

Just a random update, but when I reported back on page 3 that everything is working fine (Snap VDSL, static IP, WDTV, iPad), I forgot to mention that I've blocked 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

I can't see any reason why that would matter because WDTV etc. don't do the secondary DNS lookup that Chromecast does.

I started a unotelly trial, while it was no better than unblock us, browsing was much faster - closer dns servers I guess.

no, not quite.  For new movies I'm pretty happy to switch regions as needed.  However the kids catalog n US is generally much better.

Will probably switch to unotelly once my trial is up.  I like the responsivness on the forums here.  Altought Unblock us have generally been good in the support stakes in the past also.

I asked for and received the 30-day free VPN trial. All sorted on iPad and win7 laptop and Netflix us working perfect. Buffers quick etc just as before. Unotelly correspondence via email has been crazy fast and very helpful

Cheers- am throwing up to stay with Astrill or go with Uno. Been pretty impressed with Uno's replies here on the forum.

-Slingshot VDSL with Global Mode
-Can browse us catalogue but content only plays the first few seconds before N8210 error (in browsers)
-Same on Apple TV but just get animated wheel for ages before "problem loading content.." message

Still hoping this will fix itself... but seems less likely by the day.

Hi everyone. Just got home- changed my region on unblock to uk and immediately my appletv Netflix works fine. I'm fact much quicker than my us did. Guess I'll catch up on some other shows and continue to hope a fix is found !

I've just done the same and it's working for me now on my xbox one. Although it does seem to be a bit slower loading tonight, might just be Slingshot though.

Does this mean I'm now accessing the UK netflix? Just my list has gone (not that it's that big of a deal) but I like to be able to remember what I had wanted to watch!

Yes, you are using the UK version. The catalogue is not the same as the US version.

Thanks! I guess as long as I can access netflix it's ok for now. I hope a fix comes for the Netflix US soon.

Purely anecdotal, but interesting—

I spoke with my brother-in-law, who lives in Oregon, about this. He said their Netflix has been spotty since about last Wednesday, with streaming failing on about 80% of attempts.
