I think what Unotelly really wanted to put is an image.....  (insert image of raised middle finger to Netflix) ;)

If the studios think about it, removing the regional restrictions on shows etc will mean more customers to Netflix, more license fees to the studios from Netflix. Everyone wins.

Even without Netflix, the various geo-unblockers are useful products.

I must say I find it rather offensive that so many people (Im talking beyond this forum :P ) are so quick to condemn Netflix as 'the devil'

I know we will never know the full story but my assumption is the content providers are twisting Netflix's hand who in turn need to be seen to be doing something about. Netflix has given as much notice as they can and there has probably been some 'cone of silence' discussions around how they can legally cover their backside without ultimately pissing off a chuck of their customer base by crippling companies such as Unotelly

It is a battle similar to legal highs, as one recipe gets outlawed the new recipe is already in manufacture

It seems that netflix have already done their thing, I seem unable to reach the netflix website at all from any router using the unotelly DNS, if I switch routers though it will work, but only with the restricted NZ version. Hopefully there will be a work around.

Try updating your IP address on the Unotelly website... worked yesterday (but I haven't checked again today)

Banana?

Yes thats the first thing i tried (see attached image). The website reports everything is all good. Next step I guess is to try different DNS servers or possibly their VPN.

Yup, we paid for Unotelly again even though we no longer have Netflix, just to access all the other free streams available overseas that are region locked.

Unotelly please check out my trouble ticket which was opened yesterday #209014

Netflix US will not work on NZ Unotelly DNS for me. Sydney 168.1.6.228 works.

No I am not using Playon, though I do use plex for my local content.
So far i have verified only the US netflix that won't work with the NZ DNS settings. It will work if I set it to UK netflix under the "Dynamo" option in unotelly (just not the USA version).

I have also verified I can access USA that it works via the US vpn and if I use the Hola Chrome browser plugin (which would use a different DNS server).

I am still trying different unotelly dns servers to see if I can find a dns server that works.

I don't really want to use the VPN (even though i could set it up on the router). The reason being that I have to remember to switch it off if I want to download any torrents.
