I'm a current VF ADSL customer happily using Unblock-Us DNS to access Netflix and iPlayer on windows 7 and PS3. I'm about to move house where VF Cable is available. Given the access problems all ISPs had with Netflix earlier this year, are there any known issues with Netflix and iPlayer using Vodafone Cable with Unblock-US DNS? Any Unblock-Us, Netflix and VF Cable users out there?

Not quite what you're after but I can confirm Vodafone Cable + Netflix + UnoTelly has no issues.

I just want to be 100% sure that VF cable doesn't have any problems with DNS providers. I imagine that if Unotelly works then so would Unblock. Would still be reassuring to hear from a n Unblock user.

I have that exact set up and no problems. On a couple of occasions Unblock-Us has dropped out for 10 mins but a rest fixed things.

Prior to the Vodafone purchase of TCL there used to be issues with the TCL transparent proxy which would break Unblock et al on port 80 because their proxy overwrote the DNS addresses of the Unblock server with their own.

It only affected trying to watch Netflix etc on a browser, not on a device like a PS3, tablet, phone etc.

That thankfully has now gone away with an apparent change to their transparent proxy setup.

50n0f508: I'm about to move house where VF Cable is available.


I've had VF ADSL and VF cable, and cable is 1,000% better.

Don't rush into cable Sky though - it's very expensive, it comes with a 2-year contract, and a very high early termination fee.
(I'm going to cancel Sky when my contract has expired)
There are new Sky alternatives on the near horizon.

I've been using Unblock for the past 3 years or so fine with VF cable apart from the aforementioned transparent proxy service. But lately I started to get random site not found errors on my phone (which has to use the Unblock DNS server addresses since they are in the router) which would go away eventually if I kept on accessing the site. Finally got annoyed and switched to Unotelly and the problem has gone away.

On the OP question, Unotelly works just fine for me on VF cable.
