The dynamo is rather bare bones now. The android app still works. Maybe they are just reworking the page.

Yes bare bones. I am still able to access streaming services in multiple regions. I suspect it's using my last dynamo settings although the Netflix region has changed. 

 

No communication from Unotelly about the changes or their plans.

 

I'll  take a guess that for new users it'll just provide access to all the streaming sites previously listed on the dynamo page for the region you select.

I have found a solution via Android.  I finally got full access back on Dynamo with an unoffical Android App.  It is NOT on the Google Playstore, however, but an independent Android app store called Aptoide (you have to download the Unotelly app within their store)..  It has the full options (ie Group 1,2,3,4, etc..) with Spotify, WD, and everything else it has.  The reason why it's not working on the web is due to a great deal of external pressure applied against their company (from an e-mail I recieved) and for whatever reason their Tier 1 agents are not allowed to talk about it.  I am not sure about an app for Apple IOS, but it is very unfortunate and very sad to see this happen with Unotelly and clearly not their fault.

I assume that part of the pressure is a trademark claim against unauthorized use of the word 'Netflix'.

 

Haven't had a need to change the Netflix region until recently but I worked out Region Picker fairly quickly.

 

I wonder if Netflix can actually do anything to stop the DNS redirect business? They are making it hard but not sure they will win. $50 a year from lots of people with only the cost of running a few servers and developers as costs will give Unotelly a huge incentive to be inventive.

They don't know who you are affiliated with or who you may talk to, so I would imagine (harking back to the WWII ideology "loose lips sink ships") this is self preservation.

But for some reason All4/4OD/Channel4's app won't boot in. Other UK apps seems to work. 

 

 

 

when I add /dynamo I just get the new generic region choice. 

 

 

 

Halp!

Not working for me as of yesterday either. I'm hoping this is a temporary glitch in the Matrix, as we were two thirds though a crime drama that I've not been able to find locally yet (ironically the Netflix produced Happy Valley).

We won't be cancelling, as we can still successfully access Hulu & HBO.

Ah! I see Happy Valley S1 was on TV One. But that (nor the current S2, which is what we were watching) is not available via their On Demand offering.

Found Happy Valley S2 on iPlayer. Only has the last four episodes, but thankfully that'll cover us for now.

Also found our other lost show (Frasier) on Hulu. 

And I opened a support ticket with Unotelly to get to the bottom of their current status WRT Netflix support. Be good to know if it's time to be looking for another provider or not.

If you want to discuss what does work with that "red" video provider then send me a DM for the private forums if you haven't already. There are solutions however this should not be discussed in public space.

BTDTGTTS :-)

Let me know if what I have discussed here is inappropriate. I've specifically kept it free of "how to get stuff working", but thought it may have content of interest to others. This is why I didn't post it in the Dark Zone.

 

Unfortunately some of the required options for Mr Red may not be viable for me for a couple of months, so I'm a little reliant on my DNS provider to come up with a workaround.

Oh everything is totally fine so far so don't panic. I just want my solution to stay running because I'm selfish like that ;)

But can confirm that many of these providers are going through legal pressure from big red and have ceased providing an unblocking solution to them to many of their customers. It really isn't going to get any better I'm afraid.

Stink. May have to either reassess my current LAN setup so I can tweak away, or stick with NZ Netflix until we move back home.
