Why is it Necessary
The reason behind this publication is to find that several countries, in an effort to limit the distribution of material protected by copyright laws, have blocked access to specific websites. The same failed practice has been pursued for many years by Australia. Instead of trying to drop prices at reasonable levels, they try to limit the illegal disposal of material.
What they seem unable to realize is that, if they drop prices, they will multiply their subscribers and increase their revenue. Regardless of the amount of imposed limitations, if prices remain prohibitive for the majority of the population, the ones who do not have the money will not be able to buy the product. Netflix knows that and is bound to beat them to the punch. Unless digital platforms acknowledge the need for more free content, nothing will change. Perhaps the only thing that may change is the Banking Account of Legal Advisers that stir companies into a futile hunt.Read the case of Australia here.
The decision to circumvent these restrictions is yours. We do not support the unauthorized release of material protected by copyright laws. But we believe that everyone, and not just the selected few, has a right to entertainment. A first solution is to use the Tor Browser. See the relevant article here. A second way to override these limitations is to change your provider’s DNS server with that of Google, Cloudflare or OpenDNS. The speed of DNS Servers depends on your site. Should you wish to switch to another server, it is best to enter the router settings instead of doing it on each device separately. If your provider’s router is locked and does not allow you to do it, then you need to change DNS on each device.
Using a VPN service, a preferably paid and reliable one, is highly recommended so that you can be as covered as possible without any limitations on server availability, download limit, data volume, time, etc.
The VPN provider suggested by Code City in terms of server stability, availability and multiple-device usage is IPVanish. It is now an affiliate partner and all our members have been using it for years. See the available packages here

Cloudflare 18.104.22.168 enables you to hide your Internet activity instantly by turning a switch. You can download it from Google Play.
Changing DNS on Android box 2
Go to Settings Android> Network> click on your Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection> Advanced options> IP settings IP address settings> Static
IP address: the first 3 numbers should be the same as those you typed for the Gateway; the last one must be in the range of 120 to 254, but not more in order to avoid any conflict with another device in the same network.
Gateway (IP router of your provider) leave it as is
Network prefix length: 24 leave it as is
DNS 1: 22.214.171.124
DNS 2: 126.96.36.199
Click OK to save the new setting.
After the change, if you are connected by means of an Ethernet cable, please remove and reinsert it into the TV Box. If you are connected wirelessly via wifi, all you have to do is open and close the WiFi.
Changing DNS on a Router
Depending on the provider and router you have, you can search your google model for more specific results. When you log in to your router, enter the router page on your local network, e.g 192.168.1.1, fill in the Username and Password that are usually admin / admin, the password will be found on the label at the bottom of your router unless you have changed it. In this case, you must insert the one you have specified. Then, please go to the LAN settings and on the IPv4 tab you will enter the Google DNS by entering a field
e.g on Cosmote’s ZTE Speedport Entry 2i router, change ISP DNS from On to Off. In any case, make a note of some of the factory DNS it has already, so that you can go back to default settings at any time.
On my computer, despite the Google DNS on my router, I continued to have no access to blocked pages. So, I disconnected the IPv6 (IP protocol IPv4 standard IP protocol accessory) from the H / Y card connection as follows:
On Windows 10, you must go to Settings> Network and Internet or you can right-click on the network icon on the right-hand side of the taskbar> Open Network and Internet settings
and then on the left-hand side click on VPN> Change adapter options> right-click on the Internet connection you want to change the DNS settings> Properties>, on the “Network” tab, disable Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP / IPv6) and click OK.
Here are the relevant settings:
Primary DNS: 188.8.131.52
Secondary DNS: 184.108.40.206
Primary DNS: 2606:4700:4700::1111
Secondary DNS: 2606:4700:4700::1001
Primary DNS: 220.127.116.11
Secondary DNS: 18.104.22.168
Primary DNS: 2001:4860:4860::8888
Secondary DNS: 2001:4860:4860::8844
Primary DNS: 22.214.171.124
Secondary DNS: 126.96.36.199
Primary DNS: 2620:119:35::35
Secondary DNS: 2620:119:53::53
