I spoke to the support people at Overplay and they said a lot of Du customers had contacted them. They suspect that Du may be using something called "transparent DNS" which intercepts DNS requests and effectively blocks using external DNS settings. Strange though as Netflix is still working on my ipad. I have found Hulu works but after about 60 minutes it slows to a crawl. Was working great before Eid.I thought it was just me! I was away for Eid and came back to discover that both Hulu and Netflix weren't working. I've been really frustrated and already wasted so much time trying to fix it.
Hulu is working at the moment but Netflix isn't. I've tried every single suggestion I've found and nothing seems to be helping
It's fairly obvious. You need a decent router which can run a 'unmentionable' directly, then your Apple TV will appear to be in the relevant country and so will the iPad. Lots of routers will perform the necessary function if configured correctly.Has anybody found a fix for this yet? I'm still not able to watch Netflix on my Apple TV...booohoo
Just an update on Netflix not working - it's not a DU issue at all, it's a bug within Apple TV that sometimes makes it go wonky. All you need to do is simply, restart your Apple TV and it'll be fine again.
Settings - General - Restart.
I thought that was the case, I don't think people using the workaround have any issues though (or if they do, they can be easily resolved by restarting the device as you suggest).I have a work around. A hardwired router, so everything connects wirelessly, although I hard line my Apple TV into it, to make it faster.
