Hi there, hey anyone know how to help sort out watching Netflix.USA,the problem I'm with having is my lg and samsung tvs, they used to play the us Netflix site but a week ago will now only show the NZ one no matter what I do,(my android phone sometimes will play and sometimes won't really strange) I'm using unotelly with a belkin router, have reset everything redone the DNS settings,the laptop has no problem playing the us site so this tells me it's something to do with the TV apps and not unotelly or the router. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi, good question, but is there a setting to set the Netflix app in the TV for different regions? As far as I know I have unotelly set for usa using their DNS settings and cannot find any settings within the apps on the TV.

You will have to find how to block access to those IP addresses or how to redirect those to your own router for DNS responses. 

Perhaps someone using a similar model can give some tips.

It was a while ago, so can't remember exactly but this link might be what I did:

Ok so I tried this on the Samsung and unfortunately hasn't made any difference for Netflix.USA although BBC player works great! Still can't get anywhere with the lg tv,so looks like it's definitely what freitasm is saying all along.
Ok so can someone recommend a router that I can set up as per freitasm's instructions that will definitely work with similar specifications as the Belkin AC1750.thanks

Ok so I've found a solution, brought a apple TV and this is working with Netflix.USA straight out of the box no problem (for now anyway) without having to replace the Belkin router.
