UnblockUS is expensive. I pay $3/month in 6 month chunks. It should really be free (or unnecessary).

I've tried similar lists in the past. They ended up being mostly the DNS server IPs for paid service. So, sure, you could configure your DNS but the first time you used it it would ask you to activate your device (typically via some kind of authentication, like contract number, userid, etc.)

Too much of a hassle for me. There's 19 Netflix regions so I gladly pay $5 a month to be able to switch between them in 1 second.

Good to know. I never ran into this.

I'm happy to pay for the service but I'm not sure if it's something that runs off my router or if I can configure individual devices like my media box or Playstation. I don't want everything in my house, particularly my PC, being altered.

It's entirely up to you (except for ChromeCast). I've configured my smart TV to use the ProxyDNS server (for US contents) and I left my Playstation alone (to get the defaults from the router, which means Canadian Netflix). On my tablet I switch one way or the other. The only issue is if I want to play back on my upstairs TV using the ChromeCast dongle, if I'm using the ProxyDNS servers to login to Netflix on my tablet I can search and find the US contents, but won't play (someone explained to me that it's becasue the ChromeCast is hard-coded to use Goggle's DNS servers which resolve to Canadian ones).

That works if you run Netflix on your PC via a browser (HolaInternet is browser plugin). I can't set it up on my smart tv or Playstation, and although I can set it up on my tablet, I can't use browser-based Netflix (you must use the app).

So it sucks. I could do it on my laptop and output to the TV but the resolution on my laptop is pathetic (compared to HD).

So I guess "ProxyDNS" supplies you with DNS addresses for a fee? And you input them into your settings on each device manually?

I typically like to use a "smart" BluRay player as a media box as well as my Western Digital whatchamacallit...

Yes, you get two IP addresses (primary and secondary) and then there's some authorization involved (the IP addresses are freely available on their website but your devices need to be authorized to use it).

Y could configure them on your wireless router so that everyone uses them, or do what I did.

Cool. Gives me an idea of what I'm getting into.
