I got it but how do I get it setup on my amazon fire stick? I would like it so I can switch back and forth from Netflix USA and Canada.Scote64 wrote: ↑ They're back with a year free of the KeepSolid SmartDNS service (related to a VPN, but different method of use): https://sharewareonsale.com/s/free-keep ... 0-discount

You have to put the unblocker DNS IP address in the DNS field of your network connection settings.

Hmm so I have to update the dns on my firestick, can I make profiles or some 3rd party app as I would like to be able to switch between their and my internet companies on as like I said I would like to switch back and forth between netflix versions.Scote64 wrote: ↑ You have to put the unblocker DNS IP address in the DNS field of your network connection settings.
Most devices default to automatic DHCP-issued DNS addresses, but allow you to override the DNS addresses manually. On many devices the manual DNS fields are hidden under an Advanced option.
On other devices, you can't access the DNS settings at all (for example, the Chromecast or Roku devices). For those devices you have to take 2 steps to use the unblocking DNS:
1. Change your router (or other DHCP manager) to issue the unblocking DNS address when the device asks.
2. Block Google DNS addresses 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 in your router to prevent apps like Netflix from bypassing the DNS you specified and referring directly to Google DNS.
To accomplish 1, I find it easier to use a small PC app called dhcpsrv, which acts as DHCP manager for the network like your router, but it's easy to specify exactly which devices it responds to (by MAC address), and what DNS address you want to give them.
For 2, the easy way to block those Google DNS addresses is to create a static route that redirects them back to the router's own IP address. That makes them return an error status, which in turn causes the app trying to access Google DNS to fall back to the DHCP-provided address.

took a quick look, little bit more work then I was hoping so will have to wait till I have more time to play around with it.
Make sure that in your Amazon Account you have 1-click US address.
Also, go to your Account on Amazon.com > Manage Your Content and Devices > Country Settings and set the country to United States.
