Netflix not working with Smart DNS Proxy in 2021? In this post, I’ve put together everything you need to know about Netflix support on SmartDNSProxy.
Some people have reported errors and that Netflix is blocked or not working. It does work, but Smart DNS Proxy has support for US region of Netflix only!
If you want to access other regions like UK, Canada, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden..?
The Overplay DNS has the best, and most extensive support for different regions. However, sticking with Smart DNS Proxy is a good idea if you are only watching the US version of Netflix. It does the unblocking very well.
Also, make sure you are on a device, officially supported by SmartDNSProxy;
- Operating systems — Chromebook, macOS (Mac), Ubuntu (Linux), Windows.
- Mobile devices — Android, iPad, iPhone, iPod (iOS).
- TVs — LG Smart TV, Panasonic TV, Samsung TV, Sony TV, Toshiba Smart TV.
- Set-top boxes — Amazon Kindle Fire TV, Apple TV, Boxee Box, Chromecast, Google TV, Roku, WD TV Live.
- Game consoles — Play Station 3 & 4, PS Vita, Wii, Wii U, XBOX 360.
On the flip side, Overplay has less extensive device support;
- Operating systems — macOS (Mac), Windows.
- Mobile devices — Android, iPad, iPhone, iPod (iOS).
- Smart TVs — Samsung TV.
- Streaming devices — Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku.
- Gaming consoles — PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U.
Also, both providers have extensive support for Wi-Fi routers which enables support for pretty much ANY device you wish to use.
I have further contacted them personally, to ask for their stance on Netflix;
Dear SmartDNSProxy Staff,
1. Am I correct to assume that SmartDNSProxy only supports the United States (US) based Netflix?
2. Is there support for any other countries, or are you planning support in the future — near or distant? For example, UK, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, France, Germany, etc?
Thank you & regards,
Here is the official response from Smart DNS Proxy;
Thank you for the email.
Yes, our service only supports Netflix US at the moment.
Our Network Engineers are still engaged for the resolution of this issue using a Newer Approach. Other Netflix regions including the other regions such as Netflix UK, Canada, Australia and the other ones are still affected by this maintenance.
We don’t have specific time frame for the fix since the Network Team is using a different procedure which is the reason why it is taking some time.
We will keep your ticket active so we can notify you once our Netflix regions has been updated.
So let’s keep our thumbs up, for better support (it has taken them for ages already, so don’t expect this to happen anywhere in the near future).
