I'm not with Slingshot but it's working for me... therefore a Slingshot issue?

At this point is fairly obvious its a slingshot issue. I didn't watch any netflix last night so can't comment.

Just spoke to slingshot and yes netflix are actively blocking ips from out side the u.s and there's not much slingshot can do. No biggy just time to set up unotelly I suppose Slingshot was one of there first targets in preparation for netflixs launch in New Zealand

Only to be expected after their stupidity last year promoting their geoblocking "blocker". I said it then and I will say it again, they were asking for trouble promoting it. Their management demonstrated a complete lack of business maturity and common sense.

Whoever you taked to there was a donut, netflix came out and said they are not blocking anyone from accessing their content.

Just checked mine and its working fine. Slingshot fibre with global mode.

I am on Snap and have had netflix problems since start of month. I cannot access US region and a few others but I can get Canada and UK. Something that worked for me in getting a few regions back was to make sure when you change regions to sign out of Netflix on the device and log back in. I am using getflix but trialled unotelly and unblockus and they all had/have the same issue with netflix (for me anyway). Not sure what is going on.

Yes your right. Someone was a donut at slingshot. I spoke to a second person when I rang to get my modem login password (took the base off with the password on the bottom ) :-). The second person said the team was working on it and it had nothing to do with Netflix. He said netflix make too much money from allowing outsiders using them. Slingshot has changed nothing and they felt it was something in the pacific line. Soon see if they fix it but for now I'm using unotelly

On Snap as well and using Getflix. Mine has been out for most of the month on certain devices. Xbox One, PC and Roku are all fine. But Ipad and Note 4 dont work. App opens but cant play anything, just loading screen. My Chromecast was fine until yesterday and now its saying Netflix not available in my region. 
Right pain in the butt having some devices work and not others.  There is something strange going on as I only set DNS on modem not individual devices.
