American Netflix DNS Codes Roundup Pt.2

Our first thread was getting hard to read through to find the latest working DNS codes. Here's a new list of what's working. You can comment anonymously, so let everyone know what's working for you!

If you don't like constantly having to find new free DNS servers that go down because thousands of people are streaming through them, we now support Unblock-Us which always works to connect to American and other versions of Netflix for $4.99/month. No more hunting for free codes! We'd appreciate if you use our partner link to show them we sent you: [link]

Lots of people are updating the comments, which allow you to post anonymously; so if there are any working DNS addresses they're probably in there. Inputting these codes on each device is different, but you can do a simple search for "change DNS server on [device name]". Generally, there is a setting to not obtain DNS addresses automatically where you can put the Primary and Secondary addresses in manually.

BoJack Horseman Season 2 is Out Today

By all accounts so far, it's a really funny show - if you like animated adult humor. The characters are great, the jokes are just stupid enough to be hilarious and make you think.
Here's the Netflix link.

July 15th Will Be a Day of Prime Deals For Cordcutters

Disclaimer: As fellow cordcutters we're very excited to share some deals on Amazon during tomorrow's Prime Day, which we'll be updating throughout the day. Some of the links in this post will be affiliate links to let them know that we sent you. We appreciate it if you'll give us credit by following one of our links, but if you're not interested we understand - just skip this post.

"Prime Day?" you say? Amazon is starting a day of deals to rival Black Friday in the summer, and it should be the best time to use your free Prime one-week trial (here's our link!). As this is the first Prime Day ever, we don't know how good it will be, but we'll be updating this post throughout the day to keep up to date with any cordcutter-specific deals:

UPDATED 5pm PDT: So a lot of people are disappointed with the "garage sale" random items, but it looks like Amazon is adding more Electionics to the Prime Day sales and listing them here.

VIZIO 49-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV - This looks like a better deal than any other TV's today, and we use a Vizio with no problems.
NETGEAR 2-Bay Network Attached Storage 6TB - Now here's something for the hardcore cordcutter.

Amazon Fire TV Stick - will be $15 off its usual $39.00 (at some point during the day). Though we still use and recommend the full Fire TV for $99, as does reddit [link] for its beefier components that let it run TV and games faster.
TCL 40-Inch 1080p LED TV - $115.00 after $289.99 off!
Fire HD 7 - $60 off = $79.00
Fire HD 6 - $20 off = $79.00
Out Of Sight Bracket for the Roku 3 - $14.99 after $10 off. It's only a dollar more than without the HDMI cable, and you can never have too many of those.
ProntoTec 7 Inch Quad Core Android 4.4 KitKat Tablet PC - $39.99 after $120.00 off!
ORICO USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDD and SSD - $8.99 after $31.00 off.
512 GB Solid-State Drives - $159.99 down from $222.99
Big Screen TV's and smart TV's - deals to be announced throughout the day
Buy an Gift Card multipack, get $10 in promotional credit
Kindle Unlimited - Unlimited books and music for 12 months for $80.32 instead of $119.88

We'll post more cordcutter deals as they update the site!

[What to Watch] 16 Things to Watch on Netflix This Summer

1. Top Gun (1986)
6.8/10 on IMDB
No American Independence Day celebration would be complete without revisiting the dog-fighting classic Top Gun. Watch Tom Cruise before he drank the Scientology cool-aid! "Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby."

2. National Treasure (2004)
6.9/10 on IMDB
Another American.... treasure. If you haven't seen Nick Cage tracking down the Declaration of Independence a la Dan Brown, you owe it to yourself.

3. Wet Hot American Summer (2001)
6.7/10 on IMDB
Get ready for the July 31st release of "First day at camp" by watching the classic retro comedy. We'd like to thank Netflix for picking this up and continuing it (slightly NSFW trailer):

4. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
8.2/10 on IMDB
While it might not make you feel too warm and fuzzy about the American banking system (especially since it's based on a true story), if you haven't seen this awesome movie, this summer is the perfect time.

5. American Dad (2014)
7.5/10 on IMDB
Stan is a right-wing CIA agent keeping America safe in his own crazy way. Seth MacFarlane is in top form.

6. House of Cards (2013)
9.1/10 on IMDB
If you haven't binge-watched Season 3 yet, this is the perfect weekend to do it! Everyone loves it, go see why.

7. Shooter (2007)
7.2/10 on IMDB
Another perfect summer action movie, Mark Wahlberg tries to stop an assassination attempt on the president, and is framed along the way. Will he find out what's going on, or is the movie him sitting in a jail cell for 2 hours?

8. Black Hawk Down (2001)
7.7/10 on IMDB
A more war-like patriotic action flick, Black Hawk Down directed by Ridley Scott details the story of over 100 Army Rangers dropped into Somalia to capture two top lieutenants of a Somali warlord. Intense and riveting.

9. The Terminator (1984)
8.1/10 on IMDB
A classic action movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as a mean robot sent back in time to kill the unborn future leader of the human resistance.

10. IP Man (2008) / IP Man 2 (2010)
8.1/10 (IMDB) / 7.6/10 (IMDB) 
"A semi-biographical account of Yip Man, the successful martial arts master who taught the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun to the world." - IMDB
Definitely worth a watch if you're in the mood for some Kung Fu.

11. Mission: Impossible (1996) / M:I-2 (2000)
7.1/10 (IMDB) / 6.0/10 (IMDB)
Watch the adrenaline-high spy action thriller to rule them all. And who can argue that the soundtrack isn't the best?
This is actually better for your back than a standing desk, try it.
12. Django Unchained (2012)
8.5/10 on IMDB
It's about time we get to some Tarantino (who won an Oscar for this film along with Christoph Waltz). We definitely give this Spaghetti Western about a former slave's quest to free his wife more than an 8.5.

14. Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
7.8/10 on IMDB
If sci-fi is your thing, check out the most recent addition to the Star Trek universe, following Chris Pine as he tries to track down a one-man weapon of mass destruction.

15. The Fifth Element (1997)
7.6/10 on IMDB
The fifth element isn't Boron in this 1997 classic starring  Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovich. Watch as a future cabbie and his fare get wrapped up in the hunt for the ultimate space-weapon.
16. The Animatrix (2003)
7.4/10 on IMDB
Animated short films set in The Matrix show the backstory to the original mind-blowing masterpiece. If you haven't seen them and like the Matrix, it's time to catch up!

Bill Nye, Django Unchained, Boxtrolls, and More Now Streaming on Netflix

Bill! Bill! Bill!

A Collection of 31 Episodes of the 1993 classic Bill Nye, the Science Guy is now streaming on Netflix. Unfortunately, it's missing the other 69 episodes, but if you search on YouTube some more are on there (we can only assume they are allowed, or else YouTube would removed them...). All episodes are also available on Amazon, but cost money [link].

The patron saint of nerds everywhere. Link to Netflix. Link to Amazon.
This is probably related to Bill Nye getting the word out about his LightSail Kickstarter, of which we are a backer! If you want to support crowd-funded space exploration, and help carry out Carl Sagan's dream of solar sail powered space flight, definitely check it out.

The Boxtrolls

Another kid-friendly movie just added to Netflix is The Boxtrolls. It was surprisingly good when we saw it in theaters, and I still find myself wanting to pat on my boxclothes when I'm happy.

Link to Netflix

Inglourious Basterds

A very not kid-friendly movie, Inglourious Basterds is also now available. With an 88% on Rotten Tomatoes, it's an unmissable Nazi-killing Tarantino flick. "And I want my scalps!"

Link to Netflix

Django Unchained

Another amazing Tarantino movie (aren't they all just perfect to watch over and over on Netflix?), Django Unchained follows the story of a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) and a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) trying to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Django Unchained on Netflix

[MEX] Jurassic Park

"MEX" you say? The original Jurassic Park just started streaming in Mexico. This is a perfect nostalgia recap before the new movie comes out, but only for people with access to an easy country-switching DNS service like Unblock-Us, which we use and support. If you have the service, all you have to do is pull down the menu on their website to Mexico, and voila, Jurassic Park is available on Netflix. Watch the trailer for the new Jurassic Park here, and watch the 1993 trailer here. How it works:

1. Jurassic Park is unavailable to stream in the US.

2. Change my region to Mexico at Unblock-Us
3. There's Jurassic Park, ready to watch!
Click here to check out Unblock-Us using our referral code so they know we sent you; we appreciate it.

[BRA] The Imitation Game

Similar to Jurassic Park playing in Mexico, The Imitation Game is playing in Brazil. Just do the same thing as above, pull your Unblock-Us menu down to Brazil, and the Imitation Game will show up on Netflix. Enjoy!

Changing region over to Brazil.
And now we can watch Imitation Game!
Thanks to:
Reddit, Reddit, Kickstarter, and InstantWatcher for the info.

Eureka Seasons 1-3 Removed from Netflix and Hulu, are Free with Prime

Update 5/19/2015: Dennis writes in the comments that Eureka is no longer free on Amazon Prime. Sorry for the confusion from this outdated information!

We have Amazon Prime and they charged me for watching season 1 ep. 1-4. I thought we did not need to pay but my wife said they charged us for the episodes. You will not get for free Eureka season 1-5 on Amazon Prime.

We previously posted that Seasons 1-4 were in order on Netflix, and that Season 5 had arrived. Well now Netflix has removed seasons 1-3 as of this morning, October 1st. Strangely, when you search for "Eureka" on Hulu, they've removed all traces of the show, even with Hulu Plus:

It's very odd, and we can only assume that either Eureka was only licensed to both companies for a limited time, or they're planning an exclusive somewhere else later. Or maybe someone paid more for the exclusive right to stream the show...

There is good news!

All episodes of Eureka are up for free on Amazon Instant Video if you have Amazon Prime. (see update above!) Simply go to Amazon to watch them free with Prime, $1.99 each without it, or $2.99 for HD.

Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, Season 4, Season 5

We appreciate you taking our links in to show them that we sent you - even though the episodes are free and they won't change the price on anything. Thanks!

Thanks to Anonymous and Anonymous for reporting it in the comments. Keep reporting anything you see missing or out of order in our anonymous-enabled comments, and we'll often either figure out what happened or find somewhere to watch it.

Black Butler - Season 1

Update May 15 2015: Season 1 of Black Butler is free on Hulu:
So you can watch Season 1 on Hulu, and Season 2 on Netflix. It's also available for a cost on Amazon.

Update 10/4/2014: Season 1 has been removed from Netflix. No justification has been given.
LissBirds in the comments said, "I contacted Netflix about this. They said the license had expired, but that they had received input from fans and are trying to bring it back. I told them to add my vote, too."
Anonymous said:
"One question if your not going to have season 1 what is the point of starting with season 2? Black butler is one of those shows where if you didnt see season 1 then season 2 makes no sense."

Update 9/19/2014: Relisting the episode order here, as they are still messed up, they just got rid of the confusing numbers on Netflix.

The original messed up numbers on Netflix
Season 1: In Order MISSING
Episode 1, "His Butler, Able" is listed elsewhere as "His Butler, Talented"
Episode 21, "His Butler, Engaging Servants" is listed elsewhere as "His Butler, Recruiting"

Episode 17, "The Threads of the Spider¿s Story"[SIC] is listed elsewhere as "Spiders Intention"
Episode 18, "The Story of Will the Reaper" is listed elsewhere as "The Tale of Will the Shinigami"

Netflix Server Problems - May 9 2015

Update May 11th: It's day 3 of checking and seeing that the Netflix server is still having issues. If you're getting lag, it's probably them and not you:

Update May 10th: More problems pinging the Netflix servers today, if you're having issues on Mother's Day, it's probably them:

Netflix may be having some issues, as an "IsItDownRightNow" ping failed one minute ago, and the site has been having some latency issues. It's working right now and we expect that they're working on the problem, but you may have some trouble watching things tonight. You can always check "Is Netflix Down?" on the left, and let us know if you are having issues in the comments below, or on Facebook to let others know.
