I'll admit I havent looked into the issue much myself, been busy.... hence asking here ;)

 

Wifes little Dell Zino is running Win 10, using Chrome with the Zenmate VPN free service  to stream TV shows etc (TVNZ, TV3, Plex etc) and all been working well until the weekend, when she found that some of the US shows she had been viewing were now coming up with "Not available in your region", and that TVNZ would load the page but refuse to play the video. 

 

I turned off Zenmate and the adblocker, but still no go. Even fully disabled the extensions but no change. Cleaned cache, cookies etc.

 

RDP'ed into my home server and could access the sites perfectly fine, so know its not a network/DNS issue on the ISP side. Zino is using DHCP issued by the router.

 

So tried Internet Explorer/Edge, but no go as well, same issue, which effectively rules out Zenmate being the problem (since it was only running on Chrome). All other sites (non video) are running fine.

 

Any ideas for me to try tomorrow while Im working from home..... :)

 

Cheers

Problem solved........ turns out that PC was using Unotelly DNS settings - which we stopped paying for 6+ months ago..... yet we were still able to use it. They obviously finally clicked on and killed it. Remove DNS, and back to normal internet...... flick on Zenmate and we're away for US sites again :)
