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.
Go to “Settings” menu (3) on your Apple TV device.
On your next screen select “Network” (4).
Click on “Wi-Fi” (5).
Choose your Wi-Fi network (6).
In the next screen, scroll down and select “Configure DNS” option (7).
Select “Manual” (8) when you are asked to choose between Manual and Automatic.
In the DNS field (9) enter the DNS Server addresses. 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 22.214.171.124 you should enter 001.011.111.123. Click “Done” (10).
Your Smart DNS is set up, but you have also to change your device region. For that, go back to “Settings” and select “General” (11).
Find “Region Format” option (12) and press on it.
Select “United States” (13) from the list of options.
Go back to main screen and select “Settings”. Use the “Sleep Now” command. Unplug the Apple TV power cord and wait 10 seconds. Then plug the Apple TV back in.
