I tried unblock-us internationally and configured my trial dns and slingtv still gave the same message, content is not available in your location. Has anyone had success with unblock-us or recommend others that work? I changed the dns.

unblock us sends out the help info page which has dns

Try security kiss vpn they give you 500mb free a day I would say vpn is more reliable then dns service.

for vpn., I would have to install a vpn client on the firetv right. Also that would make the overall experience sluggish. I would prefer the dns service over vpn. but thanks for the info. I'll look into it.

It's easy if you are rooted that is how I access content from Poland my home country that requires Polish ip. Always get more stable streaming even in 720p.

But VPN's are limited to the amount you download. I'll surely try them out. I will be needing vpn too and don't mind paying for a fast good service.

I have used in 2014 service called Astrill it's the best VPN I have ever used and oh on facebook about a week ago I won 3 months vpn for free

they offer unlimited so this would be great for you, I gave you link to securitykiss so you can try it out if it works. If it does then I strongly would suggest you use astrill for fast speed and unlimited.

I can do few speed tests running VPN, which country you are located in? I am in New York so obviously there will be slower speeds and higher ping but it will give you an idea.

I live in Los Angeles and am moving to dubai / UAE soon. Let me look at astril. I don't like companies that enforce their own vpn client. would like to use native.

Check their server list they have their own app or you can of course use things like openvpn etc... on myfire tv I just downloaded my OPENVPN profiles and I simply connect when I want to use Polish vpn

I will do a test speedtest for you right now using no-vpn to Warsaw,Poland and with their VPN to same server Warsaw,Poland.

No-VPN


Poland,VPN without restarting browser


Poland,VPN after restarting browser


This is why I love Astrill!

That's your upload. I'm sold to Astrill. I'll sign up and test it out. But at first I'll try another dns service as if that works. then i prefer it that way as then the firetv can be on your local network as well.

Get a router that supports DD-WRT (cheap one is the DIR-615 for $20-30 ) and a vpn provider such as privateinternetaccess.. Their speeds have been great for me..

you simply connect the router to your vpn, and either conenct to it via wifi or ethernet and your behind the vpn spoofing whatever location you choose.
