Part II. Change your Apple TV DNS addresses
This has to be done only once.
It is important to save your original DNS settings before making any changes. You might need them in case you will want to switch back to your original settings.
From your Apple TV menu go to “Settings” (3).
Select “General” (4).
Go to “Network” (5).
Select “Wi-Fi” (6) for wireless network or Ethernet if you have cable connection.
Choose your Wi-Fi network.
Click on “Configure DNS” button (7).
Choose the “Manual” option (8).
Enter CactusVPN DNS Server. You can find them in Settings -> DNS Servers in Your Account on our website.
Important! You should enter 3 digits for each cluster. I.E. for DNS 220.127.116.11 you should enter 001.011.111.123.
Go back to the main “Settings” menu and select the “iTunes Store” (9).
