Let me explain and hoping, may be Vodafone pro tech guy can help me. I see this situation as "Man in the middle". Long story shot: Netflix error code is 251-251. What had been done:

 

no VPN, no DNS proxy

 

reboot modem a few times

 

reboot router a few times

 

Uninstalled/installed Netflix

 

called Netflix with this error, 30min spent, no help, said the problem with other end

 

called Vodafone, saying Netflix wont help, nothing from Vodafone.

 

Devices used: Nvidia Shield TV, Apple TV, Vodafone TV - same story.

 

Internet works fine, no problem at all, I can watch Apple TV+, Sky Sport Now, all NZ TV channels, etc.

 

changed DNS from Vodafone to Google - nothing changed, same error

 

 

 

Am I right saying that somewhere something cached between Vodafone and Netflix? And How long to wait to clear cache?

Sounds like you're not using your ISP's DNS servers (as in, been using an unblocker in the past).

Now using automatic DNS, before were 203.109.129.67 203.109.129.68.

 

Hmmm, just did try HP laptop with Chrome and it worked :(((, dont understand whats going on, laptop use router DNS, which are above.

 

PS: bugger I did not disconnect from work VPN, false alarm

not that it helps with your issue, but props to recognizing it seems to be a netflix issue and reaching out to them.

 

thats not a common step before calling the RSP..

Given it works via your work VPN, it does sound like something with your connection

To double check I would create a new Netflix trial account and see if the same thing happens

Also as freitsam suggested see if you can change you external IP - it maybe getting blocked somewhere

From his post it worked fine when connected to the work VPN, but all other devices didn't when using his internet connection directly

Yeah, woops think I misread it as "being connected to my work vpn was what caused it to break"
