What to Expect From Blockless

It really does not matter if you are talking about Blockless SmartDNS or another Smart DNS service,  it helps to know something about how the process works. These services primarily help to remove the geo-blocks placed on content by streaming media providers .   They accomplish this by sending data (local IP address) to the site that you want to unblock that says you are located in a region or country that is not restricted.  This is a simplified version of the process but it gives you the main concept.  This allows you to enjoy a different content library that may not be available in your country from streaming media providers such as Netflix, Hulu, and BBC iPlayer, as well as many others.   You can watch TV series, movies, original programs, and live events that you may otherwise not be able to see from your current location.  As an added bonus, you can see them from anywhere in the world.  As I briefly mentioned above, this  differs from a VPN which adds privacy protection through encryption.  The encryption used by a VPN can slow down your connection and generally costs more.  This makes Smart DNS a better choice for anyone who does not need the online privacy and anonymity of a VPN connection.

Blockless Supports a Wide Range of Devices

Blockless Smart DNS supports a variety of devices:  Computers, Set Top Boxes, Televisions, Game Consoles, Smart Phones, Tablets, Blu-Ray Players, and Routers.  To find the guide to setup their Smart DNS with your supported device from their website:

  1. Navigate to their Support page: click “Support” in the main menu.
  2. Type “devices supported” in the search box on the support page
  3. Open the article “What Devices Are Supported By Blockless?”
  4. Click the “Setup Guide” link inside the article.
  5. Select the “Smart DNS” button
    • Select the “For your whole house or network” button if you need a router setup or
    • Select the “On a specific device” button other devices
  6. Select the device you wish to setup

Their device setup guides are articles that can be accessed through their Support menu. These articles have graphically illustrated manual setup guides for all of their supported devices.  Many also have tips to troubleshoot the setups and some include videos.  Likely, if you have a device that allows DNS setup, they can support it.  Also, their SmartDNS service can be used from 2 different locations if one device is using the Smart VPN login since it does not have to verify the IP address to work.   Since their Smart VPN service is mobile, it is only supported on Windows 7/8 Operating Systems, Mac OSX, iOS Smart Phones, Android Smart Phones, and Tablets.

As always, the key is being able to configure the DNS settings for whatever device you want to access streaming media with.  Since their service checks your IP address only a single device at a time can connect to it.  Making the DNS Settings change on your router can help you use the service with all the devices connected to it.  As I previously mentioned, you can have 2 simultaneous connections if one is using the mobile Smart VPN connection.
