I am hoping someone can assist by providing some instructions to configure my router to enable content from multiple streaming services to be accessed without changing the location settings.

 

Specifics;

 

I have Spark UFB, with Unblock.us DNS settings configured at router level.

 

I currently subscribe to content from Netflix, Hulu, Quickflix and Lightbox.

 

I have altered static routes router settings to enable me to stream content from Hulu and Netflix from chromecast.

 

Content is streamed on an apple tv for airplay, chromecasts, and samsung SMART tvs.

 

I also watch content on iPad and iPhone.

 

Issue

 

Despite having configured Unblock.us DNS settings at router level, I can still access content from NZ streaming services Lightbox, TVNZondemand, and Quickflix.

 

However, I can't access content from Neon, instead a message appears saying content is blocked, and not available in my location.

 

There is a post with topic number, 138689 discussing similar content restrictions relating to Unblock.us, Skygo and IOS, with a solution proposed by user "notReally". but I wonder if you would be so kind as to post some specific instructions as to how I might configure my devices according to the instructions below;

 

 

 

NotReally posted;

 

Hi Pulinski, I had a similar problem with Playmo.TV, Netflix, and OnDemand on the iPad. I used the primary SSID on the router for OnDemand (default DNS settings on the iPad) and the secondary SSID for Netflix (with Playmo.TV DNS settings on the iPad). I do have to remember to check which network I'm connected to before using each app but it is the only way I could think of to have both apps working.

 

 

 

 

 

Any advice or instructions would be gratefully received.

Thanks Jonr, however, I'm guessing you were suggesting changing ISPS, but I am on contract with Spark UFB until October, and don't especially wish to pay termination fees if I can find an alternative solution.
Many thanks!!

Yoiu're probably facing an issue like I found before TVNZ was supported by unblock us....in that their provider is supported (for tvnz is brightcove) for another service (I think it was an irish channel).  I ended up using dnsmasq on my router to route access to brightcove.com to my ISPs DNS servers.

Neon is possibly using another service provider and may need the same treatment.  The problem could be if the service provider is the same as a service you actually care about ie hulu, or bbc - as it will stop those from working.

Sorry how did you get changing ISP from my post saying ' Wall of Text '

It means format your post so it does not look like a wall of text and it's easier to read

luckily, it's only Neon that isn't working, so you really aren't missing out on much at all.  :)

Build your own DNS server and forward requests accordingly.
