Hi Guys/Girls,
Living in Australia we've got some issues getting to Netflix.
We need to use DNS servers for proxies so we can connect (Geoblocking and such)

I'm not looking at wanting to set the DNS on the Wi-Fi connection itself, as I often use networks out of my own Wi-Fi connection at home.

I know I need to set IP addresses manually in the Wi-Fi menu for the DNS option to show up.
I am unable to get Netflix to work at all.

I've tried 2 used apps on my phone (Galaxy S5)
DNS forwarder - http://goo.gl/VGpr0M
Static DNS for Wifi - [STRIKE]http://goo.gl/LQV8br[/STRIKE] - Since looked and stated it's not working on 5.0 yet..

Testing the apps on my KitKat 4.4.2 S5 - This works fine.
Tested on my Nexus 9 5.0 (LRX21L) - Fails to work (Netflix is not available in your country)

Does anyone know if the way of setting DNS with apps is broken since the changeover?
