Apple TV and Netflix

HI all


Just a question here. It may be a silly question, but going to ask anyway, lol.

I will be getting my Apple Tv soon end of this month hopefully. However will be using netflix on it, and will be using the USA netflix as it has more of a collection of movies. The outside USA netflix the movie range aint that great.

I have came across this on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5fdpEUKxco

My question is, changing the dns settings for me to use this netflix version, will it affect anything else to do with Apple tv, or will it just affect netflix, as in giving me the ability to use the USA netflix.

Thanks in advance.

You could use tunlr, but you should read through this before you do anything:

unblock-us do a fine job. Been using it for 6 months with very few issues. You can region switch on their website as well. I rent movies from the UK iTunes store and that is unaffected by the DNS change.

AppleTV + Netflix + unblock =
