dns4me.net Smart DNS - $46 CAD per year.

Price:

Pretty good deal on a really good smart dns service ...

It's one of the only smart dns services I'm aware of that let's you specify your own custom domains,
and comes with a DNS Log tool to help you find out what host names you need to fake location for ...

For example, for Pluto TV you need to use a US server for "api.pluto.tv", but you can also use UK if you want UK content, etc.
Works great for Amazon 4k FireTV, enables US Prime shows (at least partially) as I can stream "SpongeBob SquarePants" :-)

Also supports up to 3 IP zones, so you can enable it for 3 different IP's at the same time ...
No slowdowns like with a VPN, so if you just need it for geo unblocking it's better than a VPN.

Use coupon code: lovewp and also switch funds to AUD to get it for $50.06 AUD ~ $45.93 CAD.

Interesting...

How does it compare to Smart DNS Proxy if you have ever used it?

My smartdnsproxy 3yr deal runs out next month :(

I have used it, it looks very similar but I went with dns4me because I can override domains,
and with smartdns support would not override some polish tv channels I requested ...
even though I told them what hostnames were needed ...

There's a few services that offer lifetime subs from time to time for under $50. I was purchased three Getflix lifetime subs at different times for about $40CAD through Stacksocial. Works great for me. I use it with Hulu, Vudu, Pandora, and a few other US based streaming services. It doesn't work for getting US Netflix though. BTW, I've been using the first sub for about 4 years now, and second for about 3 years, and the third for about 1-2 years. All three are setup in different houses.

I have a lifetime sub with Getflix too and they are having issues beating Netflix because of how Netflix do reverse look up. Their included VPN services uses OpenDNS and blocks a lot of sites. I bought them as backup service if Windscribe decides to kill off their lifetime subs.

My primary is still IronSocket, their DNS service is reasonably good. There is a bit of delay to start the stream on Netflix (because of how Netflix does reverse lookup), otherwise both the VPN and DNS services are good and inexpensive at USD$25/yr during their sales.

Signed up for the trial to check it out. So far seems to work great on my Nvidia Shield.

At first I couldn't get the US Amazon Prime library, but I realized it defaults to using UK and you have to change it to US in the services settings. Now it's seeing the entire US library just fine.

Also had no idea there was a UK version of Pluto TV. Switched it over to the UK and now there's so many more movies to stream.

Not promoting but OpenDNS is only $20 USD a year. Heard they're one of the best.

I am not sure if it works on the Fire TV (it probably will), but if you sideload install the "Amazon Video" apk (v3.11.44) that is ripped from the Sony Android TV, it will give you access to the full US library (as long as you're using a smart DNS of course).

I use it on my Nvidia Shield and it works great. Only caveat is it maxes out at 1080p, so no 4k. No really a deal breaker though considering you get full US library access.

If you want to check it out, I have a copy on my dropbox:

are you getting the US and U.K. Netflix on the Shield too? I could never get my nord vpn to work on the shield

(and you’re talking about the dns4me not SmartDns that was mentioned above right?)

SmartDNSProxy is one the first and the biggest companies to do this. They own Getflix and I absolutely love having got their lifetime deal. The best service imo.

End-to-end encryption between you and the provider. In the case of a VPN, your ISP (or anyone between you and your vpn provider, for example in the case of a man-in-the-middle attack) cannot see where the traffic goes/comes from, as the traffic is encrypted and it looks like a bunch of gibberish for whoever is looking at it. A DNS service also tunnels your traffic, but without the added protection of the extra encryption layer.

Do note that HTTPS does encrypt all traffic, so while people can snoop on the domain (website) where the requests are made, it isn't possible to see the content of the request or critical info such as passwords or banking info unless they are being sent over plain http.

Their site doesn't mention which country's DNS servers you have access to. :rolleyes:
