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.
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.

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
b) maybe screwing with the caching setting made a difference
