I'm just trying out Netflix with Smart DNS from MPN but when I open Netflix and look at “Settings” then “Get Help” it shows Country/Language as CY/en-CY under Member. Does this mean I am getting the Cyprus Netflix and not the UK version?

Logging into my MPN a/c under Region Selector option at the bottom of the page under the “Individual Channels” section there is only the choice of USA or OFF. If switched to USA then half of the Netflix content comes up with a warning error that a proxy or VPN is being used. When switched to OFF then I am back to being error free but I assume it’s the Cyprus Netflix I’m getting.

Can anyone tell me if you are getting the UK version and how?

Also, even though it works on my smart TV app it won’t run on at all on my Amazon Firestick – error message: "sorry we could not reach Netflix service. Please check Network Settings to connect to an available network and use Netflix (-100)” assume it’s because I probably am connected to the Cyprus Netflix. This is strange as the friend's Firestick Netflix app which I setup for her last week works just fine (her region selector for Netflix is OFF) and she uses MPN too.

Any help gratefully received.
Thanks

When I get problems with my Firestick (admittedly I don't have Netflix) I reset the the Data in 'Manage Installed Applications'. in 'Settings' - 'Applications +'.

Cheers John

Thanks but have done that and uninstalled the app and reloaded it. It wont even open, just gives the network error message.

MPN say they dont support Netflix UK - only US but I'm sure others over here get the UK one.

As you are in Cyprus Netflix Cyprus is what it will link to.

If you want to connect to Netflix UK you will need to use a VPN service. unfortunately Netflix has (probably) the most advanced VPN detector of all services, so what works today may not work tomorrow.

Very interesting article Mr. Tibbs.

I've decided I'm quite happy using Netflix Cyprus but my only problem is that the Netflix app on my Firestick wont even open.

I've installed Netflix app on 2 friends Firesticks this last week and no problems at all. So why it wont work on mine I dont know. Anyway, it is working fine on my smartTV so I've given up trying to get it to work on my Firestick.

Thanks a lot.

TBH, I had absolutely no idea Netflix was a moveable feast, until you raised the issue. I can see why now though and - with the usual 20/20 hindsight - the reasons are obvious. Very Happy
