Some ISP (Internet Service Providers) and Public wi-fi, such as hotels and airports block DNS override so our main service will not work for everyone. Even though this is a low % of our customers we have created an alternative method of accessing our service. This service is limited to devices that allow a proxy URL to be entered so we have listed instructions for the 4 main ones that we know will work.

Once you have configured your device from the instructions below, return to the how-to page, select the device you are using and skip down to the ChannelHopper registration steps to complete the set-up of your device. Note that prior to using these instructions, if you have previously added our DNS to your device it is best to remove it first. Also note that although our service doesn’t buffer, there can be local connectivity issues that can cause buffering. In this case please power off and on your router and it should resolve.
