    Manually set DNS settings for one device (i.e Console, ATV4 etc) leave 2nd device as is, best of both worlds.

    Anyone had success getting working on their Note 8? I've tried turning off location etc, still failing there but working fine on TV (occasionally it spazzes and says im using a proxy etc)

    Your IP address probably changed, open up dns4me console and updates it.

    Also it might be that you're trying to access content that isn't available in the region you have currently selected.

    The stuff I watched last night now says not available in your region? I haven't changed any settings and IP looks the same

    Refresh internet connection? Did your ip change? you may need to go to the dns4me website and confirm it there?

    I've done it on my router, I'm pretty sure its the IPS from DNS4me not working. Unless its just the Xbox not liking the DNS settings? Will try on the Samsung smart TV in the bedroom

    Works on the Samsung smart TV but not on the Xbox, I think the DNS clashes with the Xbox servers?

    Mines not working anymore, i'm guessing this is the case for other people too?

    Yep, goosed for me too. I just paid for a sub as well, but month to month, so am out $4.37 - it’s why you never subscribe to these services for any more than the minimum!

    It is why you should subscribe to the premium ones

    Hell Knight, when you say premium ones, do you mean VPN’s?

    I’d be happy to do that, if I could find one at a reasonable price, that worked with my two smart TV’s, and didn’t otherwise gimp my download speeds. For example, I saw this on Lifehacker a few days ago - 5 best VPNs that work with Netflix (https://www.lifehacker.com.au/2017/1...-in-australia/). Cheapest was AUD$11.99, which is a far cry from NZD$4.37. If it was 100% guaranteed they would work, I’d consider that, but there’s also a big part of me that says “F**k them; I’ll just torrent it!”.

    And I’m not that big on TV that I’d miss any show/movie if it wasn’t there. I guess if you watch a lot of telly, and Netflix’s NZ offerings don’t do it for you, it’d be a compelling value proposition.

    Yes, as I mentioned earlier in the thread https://www.expressvpn.com/vpn-software (It is on that list you linked also). You can use it at the router level for your smart TV's.

    The roughly 4500 shows and movies on ours is enough for me currently (I have a big backlog), but I have used it before and it was flawless, even on ADSL.

    I'd just watch everything I can on ours, then sign up to the VPN for a month and binge through all the shows that aren't available here.

    I cbf with pissing around with changing device DNS or setting things at Router level. I just use The IP Vanish app to go to the US or UK on my Mac then Chromecast the tab to the TV. If you cast the screen then it will open Netflix on Chromecast and not work, but if you just cast the tab then it works fine.
    Then I just Remote Desktop my Mac on my phone and it acts as a remote lol.
    I watch a lot of UK based panel shows, so I'm always casting Dave, Channel 4, BBC and ITV.

    That sounds like a lot more work to me... Changing DNS on my Samsung TV took maybe a minute. At least you have a solution that works though. YouTube is my content provider these days for most things.

    Changing DNS settings on Router level/DNS on individual device is extremely basic and a lot less convoluted that the process you described @ Mancubus.
