Hi,

 

I was wondering if it would be useful to start up and maintain a list of all Netflix type devices and their current status in terms of Netflix's action to block unblockers?  I am starting this in the subscribers only area as we don't want to give Netflix any info that may help their cause.

 

If people do not think this is useful then say so.  I thought about it last night as I am considering getting a new media device for Netflix on a TV that has very poor smart TV capabilities, but don't want to buy something that no longer works with an unblocker.

 

Ok this is my experience so far:

 

Device: Windows 7 PC (using Chrome browser)
Unblocker: Unotelly DNS on device (i.e. not configured at router)
Status: Working
As at: 3 February 2016

 

Device: Samsung TV (using Smart Hub app)
Unblocker: Unotelly DNS on device (i.e. not configured at router)
Status: Working
As at: 3 February 2016

 

Device: Sony Bravia TV (using TV app)
Unblocker: Unotelly DNS on device (i.e. not configured at router)
Status: Working
As at: 3 February 2016

 

 

 

Cheers.

Until recently I had google dns blocked via static route on my router, and it was intermittent working, but now I have removed the blocks and it works fine

Thanks for the helpful comment.  Would you care to be more constructive by suggesting we shouldn't be posting this info on the basis that Netflix might read it and it might provide them with useful info?

 

Or perhaps Netflix have a number of these setups themselves so they are able to test the changes they are making?  I am certain they won't be doing things in the dark.

I doubt Netflix gives a damn about any of this; they've proven that they are fairly forward thinking and I'm sure they know very well what's still working - I reckon they are just paying lip service to the studios on the whole issue.

 

 

 

I suspect "The Studios" might be more interested though.

You are, of course quite welcome, if you see my comment as useful.

 

Constructive? Possibly not, however quite possible. Social media is a great place to see what people are doing, (or in this case trying to do). Sometimes it is better to keep below the radar - sadly many people do not realise that very simple fact.

I guess that's why I raised this very point in my first thread.  Also there is already a lot of info on the subject all over the internet including other threads on GZ.  If it wasn't for that info I probably wouldn't be able to keep my current Netflix setup if I start being impacted by their changes.  Unfortunately it is not as black and white as you may think.

DNS4ME configured directly on TV, tablet, PC etc works perfectly. No issues, nothing blocked on the router. It's a great service.
