Hi all




I am just seeing if anyone is having issues with Unotelly at the moment? 




I cant seem to watch any of the US TV networks or Canadian networks.

I was watching Global TV in Canada this afternoon and now it has stopped. Tried all the usual resets etc.  No live chat service with unotelly at the moment either

Still OK here.

There certainly doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to how or who they are blocking. It's pretty random.

Hulu, HBO Now, BBC iPlayer etc all still working for me on Unotelly.
But US Netflix hasn't worked for me for the past 3 weeks.

For some reason I can't use my BNZ Visa to pay for Unotelly anymore. The payment always fails. I'm guessing they must have blacklisted Unotelly?

Mine hasnt worked for a number of days.



I can access the various Netflix regions but trying to play content that is not in the NZ catalogue results in the "your not connected to the internet" or "you seem to be connected to a unblocker".



BBCiplayer and other works so I know its just a Netflix thing.



Getting a bit irritated now after waiting a week for a fix from the unblocker.



I did however use a torrent the other day if you know what i mean for the first time in 2 years.

working fine for me on hulu, amazon etc, but Netflix has been a problem. apparently Netflix will work on PC/Browser with one of the test locations but xbox one (which is how I view) is currently broken.  i'm waiting it out, got more than enough to keep me going for now on hulu/amazon/nz-Netflix.  uno guys are working on it all...
