No matter what country I use with my DNS, I just get a circle going round in circles then it times out. Help appreciated. It use to work just fine.

Is it just the live games - or the library content as well?

 

Fanpass at less that $2/game is probably looking very inviting.....

I have the same issue.

 

I'm 90% sure it's adblock related. no issues watching non live games.

I gave up on live stream after the first Warriors game this season. Its never reliable enough anymore. I use Fanpass and for the most part it is very good quality. A tad pricey though.

How many games do you watch a week, tho?  One game - yep its pricey.  Eight games - a bargain.  Origin season.... the reduced number of games in a weekend - price gets steep again, but what price Origin??

All the games get archived.  I think you can still even see the nines and last years games!

Usually only a couple of games. The delayed play back is a great feature that I appreciate. Have to say it's works very well and it painless. I do the monthly subscription

Yeah, that becomes a bit marginal doesnt it?  Last years Season Pass was a much better idea for the casual NRL fan.  Dropped because it wasnt popular - but with no marketing how does the audience become aware of it??

I gave up on Livestream.

 

Instead paying $50 a month for the Sky deal.

 

The money paid, is worth not having the hassle.

What DNS service you using ?

 

I was on Unotelly and able to access Livestream fine until Unotelly pulled the plug on most of their systems. Couldnt access the live games anymore, so tried a free VPN service, and bang, game on :)

Livestream use to be awesome until it got famous. Ill try watching an old game.

 

I turn my adblock off for it, but perhaps it still finds some code or something?

 

No use to be on unotelly, same issue there though. I dont think its the DNS

Interesting - didn't know they pulled the plug. I'm using the Livestream app on Roku and it works fine (I had to ensure it was set to Germany for NRL in the Dynamo settings). It also works fine on my laptop/tablet/phone. I can watch all the live NRL games, and archived ones. Love it, because I flatly refuse to pay anything to Sky :)

Yeah, p***ed me off big time, no notification or anything, just found we couldnt access a number of sites that we could before, logged into the account and theres nothing there regarding Dynamo etc anymore. And no, account hadn't expired, still had a month left. 

 

Even their Twitter account appeared to have vanished etc.

 

Just been using Zenmate (free option) instead, seems to work fine for what we need.

The Dynamo settings have been taken off the Unotelly and now appear on another site (I suspect due to the huge crackdown by Netflix etc and them having to remove all traces of anything about DNS unblocking).

The Dynamo stuff is now located at www.luminvpn.com/dynamo. You use the same login that you have for Unotelly.
