Hey y'all

 

Have been in contact with unotelly help but I am a customer and run their DNS to get around Hulu, Amazon etc. I am also a Spark customer.

 

It's been a long, long time since unotelly could offer blocks on Netflix and this is still the case. Any unotelly user must use their dynamo and select 'off' for the region selection. This effectively means Netflix runs as it should without blocks on local version.

 

However, around this time last week the loading became slow and timed out. Now I have had time to investigate, this is happening on Sony Android TV app, Android phone app and PS3/4 app. It runs on PC and can be cast via PC to another TV that has Chromecast.

 

I run all recommended static routes etc. I am quite well practiced in apply DNS rules and nothing is wrong on my end that can be easily defined and nothing has changed. Was running as it should and now time out errors - the Netflix diagnostic indicates speed, which is not the case as my UFB is all good on any other platform.

 

I want to know if anyone has exactly this problem?

Aside from Netflix blocking various DNS IP ranges, the only problems I ever experienced with Unotelly/Netflix was when my IP address changed - which was usually after it rained and my connection dropped out then restarted. Updating my IP address via the Unotelly website or through their android app would fix that particular problem.

Yes - this is recent. Are you still on unotelly DNS and is your Netflix loading correctly today. Netflix diagnostic presents speed test as 0MB.

No, I stopped my Unotelly account back in January when my year-long subscription ended.

Same here as they couldn't sort Netflix and Amazon was hit and miss.

Me too. Stopped using UnoTelly since their region picker for the US always seemed to be down on their website. I'm now using PrivateInternetAccess which is more a VPN but it has lots of VPN servers around the world (including NZ) that I can connect to, and can access Netflix US etc.

HA yes Netflix has been on the war path where it concerns VPN's and their blocking of such the only thing you can do is wait for unotelly to change their IP address range to something not blocked by Netflix

No one has confirmed my issue yet. Guess not many of you are on Unotelly now.

 

I actually disabled and turned off the DNS settings for Unotelly altogether but Netflix still did not load...went to 25% then at 99% (after a few minutes) it said title is not available. Did all refreshing etc to eliminate stored data but Netflix still failed.

 

So my wondering is whether it's the many static blocks I have in place eg Google DNS look ups and so on.

I remember when quite a few Geekzoners joined when MF had a special deal from UnoTelly for us. Maybe they all left too? Surely there's some others still in?

Hey @theoilslickjim I've added you to the private forums. It is best to keep Netflix based discussions out of view from the general internet. You'll find the forums Here (if you've got access).

 

Everyone else - flick me a PM if you want access and I'll add you.
