As you may already know, Smart DNS Proxy has expanded its offer to include not only Smart DNS but a VPN as well. However, since we are not satisfied with the functionality of its novel VPN, this post will exclusively focus on its Smart DNS, which gives you a better shot at streaming US Netflix regardless of your location. Of course, Smart DNS Proxy does promise to unblock Netflix for you, but as with all other services, we have decided to test it and see for ourselves.
On And Off, On And Off
Unlike with some other proxies and VPNs, we cannot say that Smart DNS Proxy definitely can’t unlock Netflix. On the other hand, we can say that you never know what to expect from this service. For the past six months, the situation has been changing on an almost daily basis, with the service often working only on personal computers. Setting it up on your router is known to sometimes solve the issue and grant you access to US Netflix on other devices, but this does not work all of the time.
Smart DNS Proxy works hard on providing access to hundreds of popular streaming services and we have to admit that it does a rather good job. In fact, it is one of the best Smart DNS services available at the moment. However, when it comes to US Netflix, matters are much more complicated than with most other services. That is why we are not surprised to see that its efforts to unblock Netflix are not always successful. That being said, we are glad to see that great efforts are invested in providing this option to the users. Even though there are no guarantees that you can stream US Netflix via Smart DNS Proxy completely problem-free, the service is still hanging in there and the temporary issues it has are still better than no Netflix at all.
