Anyone else having issues streaming US Netflix and Hulu?

Have been doing so for a couple of years with no problems via UnblockUS, but today only works when I change my location from US to NZ.

Are you using the AU/NZ DNS servers for Unblock?


You may also have to re-activate / activate a new IP address?

Have your recent payments gone through? If you credit card expired, you may have to give them the new expiry date to let transactions go through. 

It's all in the Help on their web site. 

If none of this works then maybe there is a trouble-ticket / issue open for it on their web site. 

I'm on a high fibre diet.

OK, that's weird. Just switched back to US area on UnblockUS - no other changes made - and everything's fine.
Whatever it was must have been temporary.
Thanks all for your suggestions.
