Just wanted pop in and confirm that Snap seems unaffected.

I'm using Netflix US via Unblock US on SNAP ADSL2 - was watching fine via fruity devices and PC last night.

I'm on the unblock-us VPN and been able to get Netflix USA this morning as well as (hopefully) being of some help to them on an OSX system.

EDIT: Spoke too soon and scared it away :(

I had Netflix crash on my Roku for 5 days, but I assumed it was a failed update.
had it working no issues on my Sony BP and Sony TV.
It just started working again last night.

This is on Vodafone VDSL with Unblock US




Hmmmm

Seems like people in UK and USA are having issues with Netflix as well.

acevpn works great, but there unblocktv service has the same issue as other smart dns providers. Only downside with using a VPN is sharing it with other devices. No VPN client on a Roku... anyway  the main tv will do for now :-)

Plus you can pay monthly, works out to around $7 something a month.

Hmm, what to write...

I'm on Vodafone naked fibre...
for me unotelly doesn't work with win7 but does work with my Sony smart TV (although I'm getting some buffering issues)
VPN service works fine with whatever I choose

Honestly you go away for a weekend only to come back to the kids screaming that Netflix doesn't work and I need to fix it immediately... :-)

Telecom ADSL2 150gb
Apple TV
Getflix

Can get to choose the programme but then get the spinning wheel of death.

Dumb comment perhaps, but does setting the data usage (lowest quality streaming) make any difference to those of you with problems?

I was going to sign up with Netflix last weekend - then saw the problems being reported - so didnt seem much point going ahead with it.
I am sure the 300mb an hour picture quality cant be too bad (if it works).
I assume it defaults to 'auto' though who knows what you would get here in NZ.
Just another thing to try perhaps - cant see that anyone else has suggested it.

Something has changed.

NF US is working for me every time now. - UnoTelly and Slingshot Global Mode. Since about 40 minutes ago.... 

I thought I had found the  culprit at first - even though I'd done the proxy check, and believed I had no caching on, I found from the slingshot control panel that I did actually have caching enabled.  I turned it off (NF was definitely NOT working prior to that - well only working 1 try out of 30 or so).  Since turning it off and doing (another)router reboot, I've not managed to fail NF US at all.

For the sake of completeness (even though I don't want it on) I turned caching back on in the control panel and rebooted.  NF US is still working - which means either the action of me "turning it off an on again" or something else changing (maybe background work by ISP or NF) coincidently *appears* to have resolved my issue for now.

Can anyone else confirm if either 

a) it's all fixed and all is right with the world

or

b) maybe screwing with the caching setting made a difference
