Launched in 2013, the service provides an easy way of unblocking location restricted streaming content. In this review, you will learn more about the service itself as well as its advantages and disadvantages.

Server Locations & Site Access – Getflix has DNS servers in multiple countries including United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Drnmark, Brazil, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, South Africa, India and Turkey.

VPN Speed & Bandwidth – Getflix allows you to unblock your favorite streaming services at extremely fast speeds. Since the service routes only a very small part of your traffic (which identifies your location) through its servers, the actual video and audio streaming is delivered at near ISP speeds.

Privacy Settings – Although Getflix can see your DNS requests and a part of your online sessions, the company does not log this data nor does it sell, rent or trade your personal data with third parties or marketing companies. And while the service doesn’t encrypt data, the provider offers a free complimentary VPN service to all paid subscribers.

Supported Operating Systems – Getflix works on most devices and systems including Windows (10/8/7/XP/Vista), Android Smartphones and tablets, Mac OS X, iPads, iPhones, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, Apple TV, Wii U, Roku, Boxee, Chromecast, Nintendo Wii, Samsung Smart TVs, Sony Smart TVs, WD TV Live, LG Smart TVs, Blu-ray Players as well as routers manufactured by 2wire, Linksys, TP-LINK, D-Link, ASUS, Netgear, Technicolor and Tomato. The provider doesn’t supply a client for any OS so the service needs to be configured manually. However, the setup is extremely easy and can be done in under 5 minutes on most devices.

Unlike most SmartDNS service providers, the company even offers a DNS-over-VPN service which allows you to use the service even at places where such content unblocking services usually do not work (example, 3G/4G Network, hotels, college campus, public WiFi hotspots, ISPs that hijack DNS servers etc.).

Customer Support – Getflix provides 24/7/365 customer support through support tickets. The support staff may log your traffic for support purposes, however, the company would always take your before committing such activities. The company has published lot of troubleshooting information on its website as well so you may be able to resolve common technical problems on your own.

Pricing Options – Getflix’s SmartDNS service costs $3.95 per month, $10.67 per quarter (10% saving), $18.96 for 6 months (20% saving) and $33.18 for a year (30% saving). There is a free 14 day trial available so you can test the service before making a subscription decision. However, the company doesn’t offer refunds under any circumstances.

Final Verdict – Getflix offers a very good SmartDNS service. The service not only has servers at many locations and supports a lot more streaming services than other SmartDNS service providers, it even offers an excellent DNS-over-VPN service.
