Hi y'all

I have been, until Saturday, very happily running Netflix US through the following:

Wellington VF cable (old TCL)
Roku 3
Netcomm wireless router (from VF)
UnblockUS.com

My router is set up with the right DNS addresses for unblockus.com.  From time to time I have had to either restart my Roku (while ensuring unblockus.com was running on my PC) because Netflix had caught on that I wasn't actually in the USA but in NZ, or do that and reset the Roku and relogin to Netflix (when doing this I restart the cable modem and router as well).  This was never an issue and merely an inconvenience and only occurred about 4-5 times in the last 18 months use of Netflix US.

Anyway I had the same issue on Saturday and tried all the usual fixes as noted above, to no avail.  There were new T&Cs I had to accept for Netflix (like most of us I didn't read them just accepted them).  Anyway, I was wondering whether anyone else either had the same problem or had an idea on how to fix this?

Off the top of my head it could be the beginning of the end with Netflix NZ slated to come here, but from reading other posts on GZ about Netflix today it seems this isn't the case.  On the other hand there could have been something that VF is doing with its network which is thwarting me.

Anyway, is anyone else having problems similar to mine or is it just me?  Be glad to hear.  I want to watch Marco Polo... LOL

Cheers and compliments of the season

Simon
