We've used UnBlockUs for a few years to watch Netflix, BBC iPlayer and Amazon Instant Video through a Playstation 3.

With the Netflix crack down on UnBlockUs we can no longer watch Netflix using UnBlockUs DNS - even with the zone set to New Zealand.

I'm not too worried about only being able to access New Zealand Netflix but I do want to retain access to Amazon Instant Video and BBC iPlayer.

Does anyone know a solution that will work for all three on a Playstation 3?

The solution is to get another device that can work with Netflix e.g. Apple TV.
Use that for nz Netflix, but keep the unblockus DNS in the PS3 for BBC I player etc

Sorry about that - I posted on my phone and have been unable to edit the topic title.

I'm guessing that any VPN/ DNS service targeting Netflix has a limited life span. I'm fine with watching Netflix NZ, I just want to also be able to view my Amazon videos and access BBC iPlayer.

I too used unblock-us for quite a while but when it stopped working for Netflix I changed to dns4me, and I have no problems.  However there is a bit of set up to do for the Netflix side (detailed on their site); I am unsure if you need to do the extra steps for just BBC etc.

There is also a discount code (10% I think) floating around on geekzone for dns4me

With dns4me under services you untick netflix, so when you load netflix it will default to NZ. As long as the other services you want to use are ticked they will still work.

Great, thank you - I'm going to give dns4me a crack.

I've added you to the private forums. If you look at the thread (here: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=178&topicid=195619) you'll find nested within a discount code for dns4me for Geekzone members only.

 

If anyone else wants the discount code then PM me and I'll get you added however not sure if the owners of dns4me want the discount link shared out to the general public.

Not knowing how much the discounted dns4me is, I can tell you that I use Stremr.TV, who support 14 different countries and with whom I now for more than 1 year never have experienced any issues accessing this streaming service - and under any circumstances, with 470+ channels in 22 countries, Stremr.TV should cover your needs/wishes, it works on game consoles as well and cost US 4.99 per month.

 

They have a 2 day free trial so you can test that it works in your specific case before "committing" to their monthly subscription!

My unotelly stopped working in the last couple of days.   I had a go with stremr and it works just fine,  but how long until netflix blocks that? 

 

 

 

Unotelly support seems to gone the way of the dodo! (for now).

 

I don't know why they just don't keep making new servers and maybe an autohopping service of some kind.
