Tunlr is a replacement DNS service that allows you to watch Netflix and similar services from abroad. The downside is that you have to change your DNS settings to send all traffic to Tunlr. You can do this either on every device you want to use such a service or you do it directly on your router, which will serve the new DNS servers to every client. But that would route ALL and I mean all DNS requests to Tunlr, and that is neither in Tunlr’s nor your interest. But theres a prettier solution: use a service called DNSmasq on your router to selectively route only the DNS requests for the services of interest to Tunlr. This two posts describe how:
And before the list gets deleted on the forum, here is my routing list, although in only need netflix:
server=/tunlr.net/126.96.36.199 server=/pandora.com/188.8.131.52 server=/hulu.com/184.108.40.206 server=/cbs.com/220.127.116.11 server=/netflix.com/18.104.22.168 server=/abc.com/go.com/22.214.171.124 server=/tv.com/hbogo.com/126.96.36.199 server=/pbs.com/188.8.131.52 server=/pbs.org/184.108.40.206 server=/vevo.com/fwmrm.net/220.127.116.11 server=/thewb.com/18.104.22.168 server=/cwtv.com/22.214.171.124 server=/crackle.com/126.96.36.199 server=/last.fm/188.8.131.52 server=/turntable.fm/184.108.40.206 server=/mog.com/220.127.116.11 server=/iheart.com/18.104.22.168 server=/bbc.co.uk/22.214.171.124 server=/itv.com/126.96.36.199
After you set up your router accordingly you should restart it. After that you can test the success by visiting this page:
