I have set up my Fire TV box with Unblock us DNS, and everything I have been able to install have worked perfectly.

BUT, there are a few apps that come up as "Unavailable" when I try to install them. Amongst them are Youtube and Frequency.

Anyone else have that problem?

So I figured it out. If you get "unavailable" in the price box when trying to install an app, then the device on the Amazon account you are using is set to the wrong country.

Its possible to log into Amazon and change the country of the device. 

You do this in Your Account -> Manage Your Content And Devices
Left menu: Country settings

Setting country to US is easy enough.

My Fire TV has still to discover that its allowed to download content though, but I can add apps via

Not sure wether I need to reset the box to get it to understand its allowed to download now. Will see if some setting times out on it and use the web interface to add apps until I get fed up enough. :D
