Hi All,

I recently trialled Unblock-US for DNS services and it went really smoothly. Smart TV worked with no problems when I changed the DNS settings on the TV itself. Roku Streaming Stick worked fine for Sling TV as well as Netflix US only when I changed the DNS settings on the router. Surprisingly, I did NOT have to block to get it going, and I do NOT know why! I had done the same with Unotelly as well which worked perfectly.

Last night I shifted to DNS4ME and nothing works!!!! :( I have entered the DNS settings as prescribed in the DNS4ME setup guide and I can not even access Netflix US anymore through the Smart TV!

Can anyone please help? Many thanks in advance.

Did you change the router back to ISP dns settings. I use dns4me, only changed the dns settings on my Amazon TV box and nothing else. Works fine for me

All good now, yay! A hard restart was all it needed. Thanks.
