Part 1: Validate your IP Address on the 'My Account' panel
Part 2: Configuring your device
Before you start: Please write down your current DNS addresses before you change your DNS configurations. You should take note of these addresses in case that you need to get back to your original settings. If your original configuration were set to â€śAutomaticâ€ť, just change your DNS settings back to â€śAutomaticâ€ť in order to get back to your original settings.
Roku does not have advanced network settings, and therefore the only way to unblock content with Roku is to connect the device to a router which is pre-configured with Keenow Smart DNS or VPN. Since some popular Roku apps (including Netflix) use hardcoded DNS settings, we recommend to configure your router with a VPN and not a Smart DNS. Please note that you would need to create a U.S. Roku account and associate it with the device:
1. Please use a device (i.e. PC with Windows) running a U.S. VPN to create a new Roku account
and associate it with a U.S. address. Do not use PayPal for payment, unless your PayPal address is in the U.S.
3. Factory reset your device (IMPORTANT - Please be aware that all your data on the device would get deleted!) by holding the Reset button on the back of your Roku for 15 seconds. Once Roku starts again, please enter your new U.S. account credentials.
