After lots of people asked us how they can connect to the shows we post about on the American version of Netflix, we started posting free DNS codes for the US (DNS = Domain Name Server, which tells your computer that “google.com” is actually at “126.96.36.199”. Well these DNS codes let you look up where “netflix.com” is, but made it look like someone in America was asking.)
Unfortunately, Netflix started blocking DNS address to access the US version from outside the US. When posted new codes that worked here, enough people would connect through them that Netflix would shut them down quickly. This has led to trouble using many DNS services, including ones that we previously recommended as well as the codes below. That’s why we are personally switching to VPN (Virtual Private Networks) – which actually stream Netflix through the connection instead of just changing your geo-location. You can read all about why we switched to StrongVPN here, and if you want to check them out for yourself, we would appreciate if you let them know we sent you by using this coupon code for 15% off. They have the added benefit of giving you the security of masking all your traffic from anyone that might be snooping.
We will keep updating our free codes as we find them, so keep commenting (you can post anonymously below) about what’s working for you . Also make sure 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. In fact, try not to connect from any two places faster than someone could have traveled that far, or it becomes easy for Netflix to detect region-switching. Good luck, and keep commenting.

If you want to search around some more, check the comments below (click “newest”). Thousands of people have posted in the comments, which allow you to post anonymously; so if there are any working DNS addresses they’re probably in there. You can also try sites like https://www.reddit.com/r/NetflixByProxy, where people are also discussing how to connect.
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. You may need to restart the device, and make sure you don’t connect from two locations too soon or they’ll know you’re geo-switching!
