NordVPN suddenly stopped by Netflix 4.16

#1
NordVPN used to work yesterday, now all of a sudden I'm getting the "You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy..." error when I try to watch Netflix content.

The only thing I did was install Kodi 18 with add-ons like Exodus, Exodus Redux, cCloudTV - I know it can't be the one doing it. Under VPN I only have NordVPN turned on.\

Is this happening to you guys as well?

This is a copy and paste from an article I read a while ago. It promotes certain VPN services so I'm not going to add the link! ( advertising )

"In theory, any geoblock like Netflix’s should be easy to circumvent by simply employing a virtual private network, a way to pretend your connection is coming from somewhere else than your actual location. Netflix, however, has put one of the most sophisticated VPN detection systems in place to make sure that doesn’t happen."

This may not be the case for you but it seems like not all VPN services will work with Netflix.

yes, even Amazon Market place in the UK is doing this now with my VPN provider (PIA) and its a PITA !!

It's weird cause my NordVPN works on my laptop and phone. It just ceased working on my Minix. I tried so many servers already. It's awful.

Switch to a Smart DNS service!

Edit: I realised that one may be using the VPN for anonymity and not solely for GEO restricted content. ;)

Netflix works if you turn off your VPN ?
I have the exact same issue although i have this issue with Amazon Prime, as ive never had Netflix. Im using Express VPN and apparently what amazon has is the newest complex VPN detection system. All workd fine when its off but when its turned on, I get a blockage reading.. Very odd.

Here is the reason why Nord locked out your Netflix as it will also be locked out on Hulu and Amazon Prime. In other words, these 3 main stream suppliers are blocking out all servers associated with most all if not all VPN companies..

This info came from my VPN server specialist.;
"I am sorry if we don't have that information listed on our website. It's because these 3 premium streaming services actively block any VPN providers and we can't risk them knowing which server locations unblocks their services."


She gave me a small list of their new servers that the premium services do work with the VPNs. Of course I cant post that here..

One reason might be if you would like to watch Netflix from a foreign country..... different from where your account was registered

But I think one question has not been answered so far? My situation is similar as mentioned above: I am using VyprVPN and I am very happy with this service...on my smartphone. There, I am running Android 7.1.1 and Netflix 7.0.1. On the other hand I own an u9-h with stock-ROM and Android Version 6.0.1 - using Netflix 4.16.1. Both Android devices run the same VyprVPN app with exactly the same setup...but I am only able to enjoy the US-Netflix content via Smartphone. So I wonder what might be the problem? Do I have to flash my u9-h with a custom ROM, so I can use a newer Netflix-App? Kind Regards

But I wonder why the same VPN Service IS running on my Smartphone very well. It has to do something with Minix or the installed Netflix Version, hasn't it?
