Here's an interesting one.  I signed up to Unotelly and Netflix UK while I was with VF as an ISP.  All worked OK, except on Netflix menus, the thumbnails are really slow to load.  No change on switching ISP to Slingshot, except when I use DHCP DNS (so, using SS global mode) on the smart TV instead of Unotelly DNS servers, the thumbnails load instantly.  This seems quite consistent - very slow performance with unotelly DNS (Auckland dynamo server).
Anyone else experienced this?

When better call saul came out I watched it on uk netflix via unotelly (im on vodafone UFB). Streamed quite bad, with noticeably degraded quality compared to US netflix. As my speedtests to the UK came in well under the 4mbps needed to max out netflix I assumed my problem was to do with poor bandwidth to the UK. Havn't tried it for a while.
