The Netflix War Is (Not Really) Over
Update (23rd of July, 2018):
2 years ago, Netflix started seriously cracking down on VPN providers. We here at CactusVPN encountered our fair share of issues with Netflix’s blocks, but we are happy to say that – currently – our Smart DNS service is able to unblock Netflix for you.
If you’re curious to know which devices you can use our Smart DNS to unblock Netflix on, here’s a handy list:
- Apple TV 4
- Amazon Fire TV
This Doesn’t Mean the War Is Won, Though
Netflix continues to play a game of cat and mouse with VPN providers – with Netflix continuously looking for new ways to block VPN services, and VPN providers always looking for workarounds.
Rest assured, though, that whenever an issue will arise with our service, we will start working on fixing it ASAP. Finding a solution could take a few hours, days, or weeks, but we will do our best to solve the problem as fast as we can.
We just wanted to mention that because we want to be transparent with all of you, and want to let you know that there is a potential risk that Netflix might not be available for a short period if the platform ever manages to block our services.
Have Any Questions?
CactusVPN usually delivers only great news. Unfortunately today is an exception. Probably you’ve heard that Netflix started a war on VPN and Smart DNS providers trying to make our services unusable for people who want to unblock it’s content from different countries. We have fight back and this was a titanic work. It was six months while David resisted Goliaths attacks and we’ve done well as CactusVPN was among a couple of VPN and Smart DNS providers who fought to the end. Unfortunately we can’t compare to Netflix’s resource so we have to admit: starting today, CactusVPN does not unblock Netflix with Smart DNS or VPN.
