Evening all,

Have finally upgraded to Unlimited VDSL so I could give Netflix a go.... But the two Roku Streaming Sticks I have in the bedroom are not showing Netflix as an option now.
I have found this is because of the Google DNS.

I have tried to go into the Parental Control and blocked and but still nothing.

So then I thought to give unotelly a go, to see if it was a geo lock, but can't find the DNS settings in the router to change.

Has anyone got this working??

From the forums I can see I could do it if the Roku did it's own DNS, but it depends on the Router.

Is there a way to do it, or should I just buy a new router that will work?

Thanks, have been able to find the password for the super user on the router, and also found since I had my Roku account set up before I set up unotelly, I had to create a new account as Roku thought I was in the U.S.

Thanks for your help
