How to setup Keenow Smart DNS on Roku Streaming Player

Please ensure that you have a Keenow account (Free or Premium) before setting your device
Important message for NETFLIX APP users
Part 1: Validate your IP Address on the 'My Account' panel
 IMPORTANT:  The access to the Smart DNS service is granted based on your IP address. Please update us if your IP address has changed (i.e. moved from one WiFi network to another) or otherwise our servers would be blocked for you. Click here to update your IP address using the 'My Account' panel.
Part 2: Configuring your device
Important - This has to be done only once.
 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 “Automatic”, just change your DNS settings back to “Automatic” 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.
2. Add U.S. services as you like (i.e. Sling TV) from the Roku Channel Store.
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.
