    What smartDNS do you recommend?
    My subscription to smartdnsproxy is almost over and I'm currently testing dns4me

    I'm referring especially to streaming speed, support and channels on Apple TV

    For support it's hard to beat dns4me. The guy's always quick to response. And the price ain't bad either. For speed, Netflix never stuttered on mine so quite happy in that regard.

    I use adfreeltime, $2/month, and comes with the added bonus of blocking ads.

    Just a month but I contacted support a lot because HBO detected that I'm not in the US, not dns4me fault since it happened to many people too. I even asked him for some help about HBO letter and he even responded (he can't do much of course). And I had a long conversation with him on Netflix where I can't access the site on browser. He even teamviewered into my Mac to check if everything's good (turns out it's because I subscribed through iTunes) .

    I'm very impressed with the support.

    yes, I have to agree about support being great. I'm in the first few days of trials and he fixed several services. Do you know where it is based?
    My only concern is that streaming speed is good only because is a fairly new service compared to others so it only has to deal with a not too large number of customers.
    Anyway, I think I'm about to pull trigger and sign up

    I used unblock-us the past two baseball seasons but this year i switched to adfreetime since it was only 2 bucks a month compared to unblock's $5 a month. No problems with it so far
