American Netflix DNS Codes Roundup Pt.2

Update: Netflix has been cracking down on DNS codes to use their American version from outside the US. Lately, when we update our free codes, they are usually detected and get shut down quickly. This has also led to trouble with paid DNS services like Unblock-Us that we previously recommended. Until they find a way around it, we are switching over to VPN using OverPlay - which actually streams Netflix through the connection instead of just changing your geo-location. You can read all about why we switched here, and would appreciate if you let them know we sent you by clicking here. Thank you!

We will keep updating our free codes as we find them, so keep commenting about what's working for you (you can post anonymously). We strongly suggest that you don't sign in to Netflix in your home country before trying various American DNS codes, as it will be obvious that you're not actually in both locations.

Last update [July 12, 2016]:
EU = Europe, CA = Canada, ME = Middle East, SA = South America, JP = Japan, AU = Australia
None reported working, including many VPNs: 7/12/2016

Periscope Used Instead of C-SPAN Cameras to Record US House Sit-In

Whichever side you might be on, we have to admit that things are pretty interesting when US House of Representatives members turn to Periscope and Facebook Live video on their cell phones when Republicans ordered C-SPAN cameras shut down. It's reminiscent of the many times that protestors took to Twitter to organize and get the word out about their causes when the media tried to shut them down - only this time the media wants in and were told to shut their cameras off.
link
Cordcutters will be used to C-SPAN blackouts though, as you can't normally watch the House and Senate streams without having a cable subscription:

"Sorry you need an active cable subscription to watch your democracy live online"
So while we deal with the inevitable uproar over shutting off people's access to watch the debates live, we'd like to throw in an extra request to bring that access to everyone, cable or no.

Brief Netflix Outage - June 20 2016

Netflix has reported some server issues today, though they seem to be recovering already.
On reddit, people say it only lasted for about an hour and is back up. We thought we were having internet issues connecting on our FireTV, but after going into Network Settings and resetting the Netflix app, it was able to connect.

Seasons 15-19, and 26-31 are not currently available anywhere officially, but you can search for the episode you're looking for on YouTube and usually find a low quality upload. All seasons are also available on DVD from bobross.com, along with the official paints, brushes, etc.

Here's an Imgur album of the finished paintings from every episode: http://imgur.com/a/mIkmj

The reason we're so excited about this is that we started painting along with Bob Ross after seeing all his episodes streaming on Twitch. We bought the gear and had a great time painting together, with more to come. Here's our Bob Ross collection so far:
First painting! Season 23, Episode 11 - Frozen Beauty in Vignette
#2: Season 6, Episode 4 - Whispering Stream
#3: Season 31, Episode 11 - Lake at the Ridge w/ Steve Ross
Latest: Season 27, Episode 1 - Twilight Beauty
Happy Painting!

Update: We just finished our 5th Bob Ross painting, Season 2 Episode 4, Shades of Grey! Bob painted this after a fan told him he was color blind and couldn't discern the colors. Again, all the Season 1-14 episodes are available free on the official Ross YouTube.

Season 2, Episode 4 - Shades of Grey

Secondary: 000.000.000.000

Let us know if it's working for you, and where you're located. You can always post anonymously in the comments, just scroll to the bottom of the post and click "newest" next to the comments and "post a comment" at the bottom of the page. There has been a few important updates from our users recently:



Netflix has been cracking down on American DNS codes used to access shows from Canada, Europe, and elsewhere. New free DNS servers are always coming online, and we try to keep up with them in the main post, but if you get sick of the cat and mouse game, we recommend switching over to VPN with OverPlay for a few bucks per month.

Why we switched to OverPlay

A brief history

NetflixFixer.com started out as a labor of love, rallying against shows being uploaded to Netflix in completely random order, and looking up the right order leading to even more spoilers online. Then people started asking how they can access shows that were available only in the US or other countries outside of their own region.

We previously recommended Unblock-Us for unblocking particular countries, and for a while they did an amazing job of giving access to whichever country you want to watch from by simply picking a country from a pull-down menu. Unfortunately Netflix started cracking down on Smart-DNS connections like Unblock-US (after initially lying about doing it).
After hearing about Netflix blocking VPN users... Source: Reddit
We don't actually blame them for blocking 'unblockers' though, as a user on reddit explained to someone asking why they are cracking down:
Warner Bros: "I'll sell you rights to show my series Chuck in the US for $3 million, Canada for $1 million, and the UK for $1 million "
Netflix: "We'll take the US and UK."
3 months later
Warner Bros: "Hey WTF! People are just VPNing from Canada to the US to watch Chuck! Stop it or you owe us $1 mil."
Netflix: "K."

So what do we do now? 

We keep trying. We've continued to post any free DNS code updates on our "American Netflix DNS Codes Roundup Pt.2" post, even though Netflix shuts them down quickly. Maybe they'll get tired of taking down new codes eventually.

We're also switching over to OverPlay.

OverPlay is similar to Unblock-Us, in that they run a smart-DNS system that makes it look like you're in America (or any country) by resolving the IP address for Netflix from the target country. Your computer doesn't know that "netflix.com" is "38.130.79.37" until a Domain Name System server tells it that's the address; but OverPlay's smart-DNS system says "hey Netflix, someone in [the US] wants to know your address" instead off your actual country. As we mentioned above, Netflix got wise to that and started cracking down on the lying DNS servers.


Luckily OverPlay also has another connection system available: VPN (Virtual Private Network). Unlike DNS, when you connect through a VPN you actually stream all the data through the connection. So instead of your computer asking for the address of Netflix, a computer in the actual country asks, connects, and starts streaming it from that country, and transfers that data to you. Obviously this means a lot more work for the VPN server than a DNS server, and that's why they're about $10 instead of $5 per month - but it's much harder for Netflix to detect that a computer streaming from the US is actually later sending that data to Canada. In fact it's probably impossible to detect until multiple people start streaming from that same address.

So OverPlay is currently working for us, and we think it will be much harder to take down, so that's what we're recommending at the moment. Feel free to keep checking our free DNS code post for updates, but if you can afford the $10, it really is a lot easier to watch from wherever you want through a VPN. You also get the benefits of hiding your location from other sites: torrents, ISPs throttling certain sites, identity protection, etc. - they only see that you're talking to the VPN, not what it's sending you. If you want to try it out, we would really appreciate if you click our link (or the ad below) to show them we sent you. Thanks!

Happy Game of Thrones Day!

NetflixFixer is a spoiler free zone - so no spoilers here, ever! We will remove anything that looks like a Game of Thrones spoiler from the comments.

April 24th GoT Day, and we're totally excited. Everyone with an HBO account, or a friend with one, can log into HBO Go and watch it (assuming there isn't an outage from all the traffic). If you don't, you can try a free trial of HBO Now. If you're like us though, we're going to wait a few weeks for happier binging all at once - that's why we're so adamant about spoilers. Season 6 trailer #2 [SPOILERS]:


While you're there, check out Silicon Valley Season 3 which premieres today as well along with Veep Season 5, John Oliver is over there as well. For the Netflix US watchers, Patton Oswald's Talking for Clapping comes out today.
