So, Netflix launched in Australia on 31st March 2015 and overall Internet Traffic for the country is up 50%.
3 days in and I was already seeing people complaining on Facebook about the relatively shallow content pool available to Australian subscribers.
Did you know that by changing the DNS settings in your device’s network settings you can use Netflix in Australia as if you were in America?
Yes, US Netflix in Australia without paying for a VPN service!! 100% Free. (but you still must pay for Netflix)
How? Use the following DNS code: DNS: 188.8.131.52
Screen photo of settings inputted into Apple TV:
If your device can take a primary and secondary DNS use:
Primary DNS: 185.051.194.194
Secondary DNS: 185.051.195.195
It is very simple to do and opens up the whole american Library to Australian users.
