Access Netflix USA Content Via Xbox 360 In The UK, You Say?

Turns out it’s not so hard! Follow these simple steps and before long you’ll be watching masses of crap US TV instead of masses of crap UK TV! Wahay!

  1. Have Netflix installed on your Xbox 360 as usual, fire up the 360 but don’t launch Netflix
  2. From the 360 dashboard, go:
    1. Settings
    2. System Settings
    3. Network Settings
  3. Now just select whichever out of Wired or Wireless you’re currently using (it’ll have a tick on it)
  4. Hit Configure Network
  5. Stay in the Basic Settings tab, and move down to the “DNS Settings” bit, and select to edit it
  6. Hit Manual*
    1. Hit Primary DNS Server and enter in 199.167.30.144
    1. Hit Secondary DNS Server and enter in 149.154.158.186
    2. Move down and hit Done at the bottom
  7. Then just go Back Back Back Back Back all the way to the dashboard
  8. Turn the 360 off, leave it a minute, turn it back on
  9. Launch Netflix and marvel at the US content
    • Seems icons for some of the US shows are missing, which I’m not sure how to fix. I’m just using the search function to locate specific things at the moment, so it’s not an issue here yet.

Rad, But Now I’ve Realised I Hate US TV. What Now Mr Smarty Pants?

To switch back to UK content, simply follow up to step 6 but hit Automatic* instead, resume from step 7 and you’ll be back to normal.

Oh, Cool

*If you’re already using Manual DNS settings then make a note of them because you’ll need them again if you want to switch back to UK content.

    Mine was still working as of a couple days ago; made sure you’ve done every step right?

    Yeah, I was using some other Dns codes which stopped working so thought I’d look for some others and no joy. It just brings up the uk listings still 🙁

    Pointless as the DNA knocks out the xbo live which you need to watch Netflix?

    No it doesn’t. It didn’t back when I wrote this anyway, but, the IP addresses I listed are probably gone now. The simple solution is just pay for http://www.unblock-us.com/, that’s what I do now. All the hunting for working IPs to use for free got boring.
