Re: [Rant] The beginning of the end for Netflix

said by J E F F:

Capitalism at its finest!

And it has been a good run, with a US DNS I get all sorts of movies and TV shows.

Are you paying for a DNS service or are you just using some random usa dns that you found? I have tried to get this working on the ps3 with a random usa dns that has been suggested online and can never get it to work for some reason.

From what I understand of DNS based rerouting services like UnBlockus is that they do route the video network traffic through their servers, but only for video sites on their special DNS list. ie. If you request a regular site from their DNS, you will be sent to that site, but if you request say Netflix, then they will perform a VPN like service to that site.

Purely using a US based DNS won't cut it. If that were the case you could just use their direct IP address to access US content, cutting DNS out altogether.

I am paying for my DNS. I was using a free one that worked well, but that DNS was not working for MLB baseball. unblock-us works for everything. The free one was tunlr.net.

Been using unblockUS for almost 2 years now and its been working flawlessly. You can even switch between regions for netflix now.

Swap to Canada to watch some Dexter/movies only available in Canada (i know right?)
Swap to US to get more TV/movies
Swap to Mexico/Latin America for other movies like Hunger Games.

The swap is done on the website and takes ~30 seconds + a log-out log-in of Netflix.
