Sorry you're having problems with Netflix.

We've been dealing with the recent Netflix issues for a number of weeks. It has become clear to us that currently there is no permanent or even semi permanent solution at the moment.

Netflix appear to be going to great lengths to block services such as ours and every work around we have implemented has been blocked within a couple of days. As you and a number of other customers are still receiving these errors, we feel that we have no choice but to drop official support for Netflix for the time being. We know that Netflix are testing their various blocking mechanisms and these tests differ by region, device and even Netflix account, so whilst some users cannot use Netflix at all, others are working fine.

This is not a position that we have taken lightly, Netflix is a great service and we've always been big fans, but for whatever reason they seem intent on making a show of blocking services like ours and until we can offer a stable working solution to our customers, we feel we have no choice than to drop official support.

We will continue to closely monitor this situation, and should it change, we'll let you know.

Thank you for your patience.
