American Netflix DNS Codes Roundup Pt.2

Our other thread was pretty hard to read through the hundreds of comments to find the latest working DNS codes. Here's a new roundup of what's working. You can comment anonymously, so let everyone know what's working and not working for you.

If you don't like constantly finding DNS servers that go out because they're free and thousands of people are connecting through them, we now support Unblock-Us which always works to connect to American Netflix for $4.99/month. We'd appreciate if you use our affiliate link to show them we sent you: [link]

Latest reported working:

Update June 1st, 2014: have once again distributed working DNS codes only to revoke them, pointing them back to their site in an attempt to get people to sign up for their service. We urge our visitors not to support this underhanded tactic - we are looking for new free codes, and if you want a paid solution NetflixFixer supports Unblock-Us for ~$5/mo and a free one-week trial. It's better to support a site that is honest about providing a paid service (Unblock-Us) instead of pretending to put out free codes and scam you into paying (Playmo).

How to connect to Netflix during an outage (sometimes)

According to IsItDownRightNow, Netflix has been having more problems today after a brief outage yesterday (I guess they haven't paid the telecoms quite enough protection money yet). Commenters their have come up with a solution that works in some of these smaller outages - just connect to Netflix' IP address directly:

Whenever you enter an address into your browser like "", your browser then checks the "Domain Name Server" (DNS) to see where that domain is located - at what IP address. If the DNS is down, but the server is still up, you can still get there by bypassing the first step.

Brief Netflix Outage, April 29th 2014

Remember you can always check "Is Netflix Down?" in the right column. About one hour before this post, Netflix experienced a brief outage and seems to be working again now. You can also ask on Reddit if it's down for other people and discuss whether or not is "the greatest tragedy in the history of civilization."

But at least it's up now.

NetflixFixer Now Officially Supports UnBlock-Us

As you probably know, a lot of people visit asking about how to access the American version of Netflix from Canada, the UK, and elsewhere. We've consistently tried to keep up to date with the latest free DNS servers available, first in our DNS Codes for Netflix thread which garnered over 786 comments, then in our "Part 2" version so that people looking for updates wouldn't need to read through so many pages of comments for the newest codes; but that thread is already at 687 more comments in the two months since it was posted, with lots of updates as we've confirmed new working codes.

We realize that these constantly changing codes might be frustrating some NetflixFixers, always playing a cat and mouse game with the servers when you just want to watch a show. We've spoken at length about different services you can use to get around country restrictions, including Hola, MediaHint, Anonymoux, and setting up a custom VPN through your home router. Unfortunately, most of these services have let us down at different times after we posted about them. There was a wave of Chrome plugins being bought by spammers which started interjecting their ads into your regular web browsing sites - which is far beyond unacceptable. They also stopped working for the most part as people found out about them - there was a CNN piece about Hola recently, and people have said the service hasn't worked since.

Now we're moving to Unblock-Us.

Being subscribed to /r/Netflix, this site has come up over and over again with positive comments from people sharing what they use when asked about getting around country restrictions. We resisted it at first because it is a paid service (about $4.99 currently after a week free trial), but we finally decided to try it out and it works great. It seems that by paying just a little bit per month, you can get around the common problems with constantly changing codes, slow servers, Netflix not working, etc. It makes sense really - every time we post a free DNS server, thousands of people connect to it and start streaming HD movies through a single connection. It's no wonder it either slows way down, Netflix blocks it, or the admin takes it down. If you filter out most of the traffic with a small fee though, many less people connect to it and it stays up, drawing less attention and paying for itself to remain operational. It just makes sense, so we asked around, tried it out, and are ready to endorse Unblock-Us. Just click the image to the left to get a free 7 day trial, this is an affiliate link that tells them we sent you.

We will still support the people looking for updated free DNS codes. When they're up, we'll spread the word; when none are available, we'll keep looking while we use Unblock-Us for our own streaming :)

TL;DR version (too long; didn't read):
- It's hard to keep up with the latest free DNS servers for American Netflix (though we will still keep updating them)
- Web plugins we previously recommended got bought by spam companies.
- We now recommend Unblock-Us if you don't want to put up with the hassle of constantly finding new DNS servers.
