Are you meaning you want to know of a DNS unblocking service for general use or do you want to know how to set one up on the Fire TV stick specifically?

DNS unblocking service that works with FireTV.

I have got getflix setup in my router but only Amazon Prime works on the FireTV, Netflix and Hulu doesn't work. But all these three websites work on my PC which is connected to the same router.

I use Getflix on my Fire TV with the DNS set on the unit not my modem   , works for me no problems 

Netflix, Hulu  and Amazon all work on mine

Yeah as marlinz said, that was going to be my next suggestion too - can you set up Getflix on the Fire TV stick and see how that goes?

I also use Getflix and am waiting for a Fire TV (not the stick) to arrive so I can set up Getflix on the device rather than on my router which causes all sorts of issues on Vodafone and their transparent proxy.
