Download the program Spotflux. This is a VPN client that masks your IP. For the lazy, download link here
Open Spotflux. On the top left corner, click the little tool icon (Settings)
Click on the Filters tab, and click "VPN-only mode"
Click the OK button
Click the Enable button on Spotflux until it says that your connection has been "Enabled"
Open your TERA Launcher
If you're still getting error 8001:0001, try rebooting your computer, and make sure you're not running any other VPN program.
Edit: Sorry for bad editting.
Update: This program may cause TERA to lag. It may also prevent you from using voice chat programs (e.g., Skype). In my case, I was having problems with Mumble; I restarted Mumble and it started working. Have not personally tested other voice programs.
You're most likely not going to find a free VPN that won't log your traffic and will refuse to cooperate with the law. If you're adamant about getting a free VPN, I would recommend Spotflux. However, you'd be better off using NordVPN, as they're pretty anti-LE. It's also only like 60 bucks for a yearlong subscription. I feel like, if you're willing to go the extra mile of using a VPN to hide your Tor use, you should be willing to spend 5 bucks a month on it.
Honestly, I'm not very satisfied with the list.
For one, on this "Must-Have" list, there are two new-tab replacements. Obviously they can't both be must-have's; they don't work together.
Another, Spotflux, from what I've read has ads injected into the free version.
Admittedly, there are great extensions: namely LastPass (which I've always used) and Pocket (which I don't use). But as a end-all list for Chrome it's disappointing.
Hey, I'm an Australian gamer who wanted to pick up premium, thought this would be a good place to post how to do it without paying the Aussie Tax.
I had some issues with redeeming the key. I figured it out, though-
Remember whenever you go back online without using VPN it will be locked again until you log in using spotflux.
Install it and run it.
Then start the game.
Once the game has started go to Steam and put it into offline mode by pressing Steam --> Go Offline...
Then you can turn off spotflux and enjoy your game.
Then just keep Steam in offline mode until the 23rd.
Install a VPN like Spotflux. That's what I did and it works perfectly fine for me.
Read this thread but use Spotflux, it works better
There's a couple of threads about this over on /r/wwenetwork. To get the network properly you'll need a VPN server, not just a fake US address. Unblock-US seems to be the general consensus. However I use Spotflux for a Mac and that works fine too!
Actually with Spotflux it's as simple as installing and running the program. When it's running you're connected to the VPN, when it's not running... you're not. Super easy to use.
Pentru plăți, n-am idee, dar metoda prezentată de /u/cosu ar trebui să meargă.
> Used Spotflux and buyed myself MohW and NFS MW activates succesfully on origin and now downloading them even tho im from EU.
How does that exactly work? Can you acces them from your european origin account? Are EU and US accounts even separate? Can you play on european servers if you buy something like FIFA 13?
Thanks for the answer :)
I FOUND A WORKING WAY FOR EU
Download Spotflux here
After installing it, run the program and go on to the origin website.
Add BF3 to cart and add all the details.
If you need a US address:
90210 as a postcode (lol)
Melrose Avenue as street name
Los Angeles as the city
California as the state
EA said it would take 48 hours to confirm the order however, it took me 2 hours to receive the confirmation.
Hopefully it works and I just finished downloading it.
I have a question about this. Say I want to play some Dota 2 in a few days - can I log onto Australian servers again, and then simply unlock SR4 again with Spotflux? Something tells me I should just try and finish SR4 first to avoid territory swapping like crazy, but I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas.
Haha, I'm in Pakistan and when this happened all the guys here were angry at this fucking kid. Then everyone started using either Hotspot Shield or Spotflux. If that fails then torrents to the rescue!
It's sort of like a proxy/VPN. Changes your IP. You have to download it, and it slows down your connection since you're basically going through a tunnel in Spotflux's servers whereas Mediahint just changes your DNS settings if I'm not mistaken.
Oh yeah, there you do probably want to play offline. I'm a bit rusty at this, I haven't done it since Borderlands 2.
So basically, run Spotflux to trick Steam into opening the US page, play Saints Row for a few minutes, then change Steam into offline mode and keep playing!
EDIT: And you can turn Spotflux off once you've done this, it tends to lower your download speed considerably.
As of now, All Twitter IPs are banned. VPN is the only way to get through. Here is a list of available VPN applications for iOS, some of them for Android too:
VPN in Touch
Get a proper, torrent friendly, paid VPN
>Do you support torrents?
>Unfortunately, we cannot support the use of Bittorrent (or similar P2P file sharing protocols) on our network due to its widespread abuse in violating copyright laws.
>IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're using our free service on Windows, only your web browsing will be routed through Spotflux. Any other applications, including torrenting applications, will use your regular connection.
Spotflux. I was paying $10.88 a month for HotSpot VPN when a kind redditor pointed me in the direction of this FREE VPN service that works better than HotSpot. He got gold fo sho.
Okay. So I use Spotflux to get past the S.K. problem. When you use the installer you have to use Spotflux, but after that you can close the VPN and use the game normally. So before hitting play, just close the VPN.
Anyone also who had the game fully preloaded have to download an extra 17mb or so when starting steam using Spotflux? It won't even download it, just been stuck on 0kb/s for 10 minutes :(
Edit: Just had to wait long enough and it started the download, about 15 mins in.
Hab seit einiger Zeit ähnliche Probleme. Gestern war es ganz besonders schlimm. Ich konnte trotz einer 50k Leitung nur auf "low" schauen... sonst ging immerhin "medium" bis "high" je nach Tageszeit, aber Böhmermann hat das Gestern irgendwie gesprengt.
Livestreamer hatte ich auch ausprobiert, bringt allerdings nur marginal was bei mir. Die Lösung hab ich (hoffentlich) heute gefunden. Hier hab ich gelesen, dass es über VPN zu weniger Problemen kommt. Hab dann Spotflux installiert und kann seitdem wieder mit "source" schauen. Werde das zwar noch weiterhin beobachten, aber es scheint zu funktionieren.
Tip para los que tengan Netflix: Bajense Spotflux (o usen cualquier VPN, sugiero Spotflux porque es gratis y anda relativamente bien), con eso tienen acceso al catalogo de Estados Unidos, que es excelente.
Spotflux slows down the internet quite a bit from my experience. Not very handy for gaming when I played War Thunder online. Too much lag ruins my day. But it's great for Netflix and Hulu or your right hand.
BlackVPN, Spotflux og PrivateInternetAccess.
Spotflux er den eneste av de som har gratis kontoer, men om jeg antar at du har tenkt å laste ned ting er du nok uansett nødt til å kjøpe premium for å få litt hastighet.
There is a temporary fix for what you seem to be describing.
Do know that it will raise your ping a bit and it doesn't seem to work for instance servers. I still seem to have major lag spikes in those.
Get yourself the free vpn software called Spotflux.
It seems the problem is caused by specific traffic routing issues. Using the vpn makes you use different routing which fixes the lag spikes and disconnects. At least for world servers.
If your problem is like mine I can say that I've been able to play almost non-stop since friday night (when I first installed the software) and had a total of 0 lag spikes or disconnects whereas I'd get many spikes before and was getting error 90000 (disconnect) once every 15-20 minutes.
tldr; Get software called spotflux, it fixes the problem.
>VPN with spotflux allows me to mount the shares.
Well, yeah, that's what a VPN is supposed to do, and the way you should be doing this anyway. But why Spotflux? Why not just use OpenVPN or something?
As of now, All Twitter IPs are banned. VPN is the only way to get through. Here is a list of available VPN applications for iOS, some of them for Android too:
VPN in Touch
Did that tweak try to install a profile? That's how they work, you have to allow the profile otherwise the app won't work.
Wait, I get it- that is a tweak that turns your VPN on and off automatically? Cripe, I would not allow that either.
I use Spotflux sometimes, with less hassle, that tweak might have helped.
I can't say as I'm not a privacy expert. I'd like an opinion on using Paranoid Android and not utilizing G Apps on an Android phone.
You can make use of TOR via Orbot and Spotflux (or other VPNs) on it.
Stealthy can be a bit temperamental, or it was when I tried using it.
Anyone in the UK may be better off using Spotflux, although that will only get you on the US Netflix at the moment. It seems a lot more reliable than Stealthy, at least if you're in the UK.
Having done this to play XCOM on Steam, I confirm this works (on Steam at least). I have used Hotspot Shield and Spotflux, which are both free VPN softwares. I'd recomend Spotflux, Hotspot Shield messes up with some drivers. (both of them are US VPNs)
If you have Netflix, you can use an app like Spotflux to access the American content - all the series and a couple of the films are on there from what I remember.
Update After contacting the cd key site they said it's the Europe version. Spotflux allowed him to add it to steam but it sounds like it's still going to be censored. Sorry about that.
A friend of mine just purchased a key through a site called cdkey vast.
He went to activate it on his steam and was told the game was not available in his region. He has been able to activate the key using spotflux as a VPN.
Based on this I'd like to assume it will be the uncensored version because it seems they added proper region locking to this game. I still can't confirm 100% for you though.
Edit - Added update to top of post
This was an awesome documentary. Thanks for the share. This makes me want to play with organs too, but i won't. After watching it, i have some questions. They said at the beginning of the documentary that the rat's heart and the human heart are very similar. And the ones doing experiments with rat organs managed to "repopulate" the extracellular matrix and then, send a pulse that reanimated the heart. So, can you, in theory, also send a pulse to the repopulated human heart and make it beat again? Like they said, it's all a question of size. And wasn't that tissue on the on the human heart living? If yes, then, it is possible. It's been about a year or so since that documentary was posted. So, by know, they should have figured out something new.
Also, for those of you who can't see the video, i would recommend using either Spotflux or Hotspot Shield.
Same, I'm off to South of France with no computers for a week from Friday and wanted to get a little playtime in before hand. Chelloveck is right, but I would argue that you should check to see if your IP originates from the US before attmepting to log back into steam and 'play' (or finalise the download and unpacking of) XCom. Once connected to Spotflux, you can verify your rerouted IP using a site like: I connected, unpacked, installed and ran successfuly from a Seattle based IP, then I set Steam to offline mode and turned off Spotflux.
There's something called Spotflux which is free and can VPN you into the states.
Oh and very possibly. I've spent ages scouring the net to try to find stories of banned accounts. Lots of warnings (from Valve on their forums and other users) but no confirmed kills unless you buy from the store. I'm still not risking it though. :)
Basically what you can do is install Spotflux - or equivalent - and make sure it is running. Then open up steam, and you should see prices on the store page in Dollars.
At this point Steam will download the unlock for the game in your library.
Hit play and voilà!
I tend to keep Spotflux running the whole time I have Steam open until the UK release date, but that's just because I'm paranoid.
Please note that Steam says in its EULA that it does not want you using a VPN of any kind to mask your IP. However, I have been using this method for a while now and have never had any issues. Some argue that as long as you pay for the game in your own currency Steam turn a blind eye. Can't confirm this, but it's worked for me so far.
God I wish i had the same access as you guys do.... Us simpletons in Canada are limited to Netflix's retarded cousin. That is... without something like Spotflux to spoof IP and block tracking cookies..
Well, it takes all your traffic and tunnels it through their servers. That means that your ISP cannot see the traffic (assuming they are doing it correctly) and that web sites see you coming from a Spotflux IP rather than one from your 's of use if you don't want to be tracked by your ISP or government, and don't want web sites knowing where you're coming from.
Additionally, you might consider /x posting your question to r/netsec (or as a female friend once called it "r/ nutsac") or to r/privacy if you don't get enough responses here in this more generalized subreddit.
Edit RaptorVPN is also a term to search for in regards to Spotflux
Edit 2* Just caught that I typed "moral generalized subreddit" instead of "more generalized subreddit". Interesting.
Disclosure: I have no connection to this company, but I used them I was in SE Asia this past year.
What worked for me; multiplayer and single-player.
Run Spotflux and connect
Launch Borderlands 2
Close Spotflux (no point tunnelling traffic through VPN at this point)
Continue to play Borderlands 2
The unlock is reset when the VPN is closed however as long as the game is open multiplayer and single-player seem unaffected.
I have Spotflux, but I have been informed that, that is not a good solution to my VPN issue. As for Android, I have found that installing alternate software has been a hassle; I just don't have the experience.
I don't know if it's blocked in Tunisia, but I think that Spotflux is a pretty fair VPN. Worth a shot. I can't remember the other VPN programs I have, I'll have to dig, but I know this one works.
I use Media Hint (chrome extension). Make an account or download the installer and login with your credentials. From time to time (2 weeks I think), you'll get a yellow error message in Spotify that your country does not match ..something. To bypass that, close Spotify, download and install Spotflux (it's an easy to use VPN). Open it, enable the connection, open spotify as normal, disable the Spotflux connection and close the program. Enjoy Spotify.
Spotflux. Couldn't for the life of me get Guild Wars 2 to work when it first came out because of my college's shitty internet. Installed that VPN and it worked immediately. If you do try this, I'd recommend disabling any VPNs when not gaming because they tend to slow your network speed down. But seriously, try this before you give up.
Yeah, sounds pretty counter-intuitive when I said it... Do it there in the land of freedom and dreams. But yeah, VPN services (Spotflux, Hotspot Shield, etc...) usually does the job of fixing the DNS for you too. It should do the trick.
Actually, I think the main problem is that the pirate bay was down for a good couple of weeks, so not as many people were seeding content. It's getting better now that they're back up.
Also, if you use a VPN like Spotflux to access some of the more interesting sites on the internet, make sure you turn it off, since it throttles your connection.
Green man Gaming currently has the heroic version for $36. If you are having a problem buying it in your region, use Spotflux. It's a free VPN. I have to use it to purchase games there and on steam sometimes as I live in Taiwan but my billing info is US.
P.S. buying gw2 for my friends is exactly what I did a few weeks ago and they all love it! Cheers :)
I've downloaded a free one, hahaha.
Spotflux, it's wonderful. I've only downloaded it yesterday, though, so haven't been able to use it much so far. I'm looking forward to browsing /r9k/ some more again!
Same thing happened to me while using Spotflux, so i would be able to watch Netflix.
The problem was solved quickly and with no implications what so ever, even though I must admit I was quite angry at the time.
Now I use Mediahint extension for chrome, works like a charm :-)
When I was in residence in my first year of uni, I also couldn't play without having insane latency due to certain ports being blocked. I ran proxies, which didn't fix it 100% but certainly made it playable. Freeopenvpn has some proxies running out of Romania and some of the eastern European countries if you're in Europe. The setup process is a bit convoluted, but i can try to explain if need be. Spotflux is another proxy that runs out of the states that is pretty decent. I'd suggest trying those 2 to see if any work :)
Try following this guys guide: (not the whole thing, just the Spotflux part)
I had SRIV gifted to me and after preloading it, this allows me to play it, just make sure you don't buy anything on Steam while you have Spotflux on or Gabe might eat you.
You can use Netflix with VPN like Spotflux (). Spotflux is free, I'm not sure if you would want to pay for Netflix considering the workaround, but definately try it out. I used it in Italy to get past region restrictions.
Maybe test with Hulu or something.
Exactly! Steam does not allow the buying of games using a VPN, but there is no problem with playing them while using one. Spotflux is just my VPN service of preference, feel free to use your preferred one!
I didn't say it was difficult (I use Spotflux personally, as I have it for Netflix anyway), but for those who only know about mirror sites rather than VPNs or alternative DNS servers, it's somewhat annoying. Still really easy in the great scheme of things, but just drawing a distinction.
I'd recomend Hotspot shield or Spotflux (warning, if you like to use Tunngle, hotspot shield fucks it up after install).
Never used a VPN for Origin, but I did the same thing on Steam for XCOM, it was a matter of openening the VPN, opening steam, and opening the game. Not sure if it will be the same for Origin, but it should.
Was using Hola, but stopped working on Pandora
Started using Spotflux
I have the PC version and I found a fix for this. I ended up having to download a proxy program. I ended up downloading Spotflux for free. After this, the game loaded within 30 seconds. Hope this helps others.
What do you like most about it? And do you know if any VPNs are good for gaming? I don't know a lot about them. Why do you say Spotflux isn't good for gaming? Thank you so much and sorry for the questions.
If it's for a brief bit of personal website viewing, I recommend .
If you're looking for something more permanent, try a free trial of Spotflux. There's a paid version, but the free one is pretty good as well.
I'm in the UK and the game isn't out until Friday. I managed to get in by using a US VPN (Spotflux is a free one). However it does mean only using my Steam when using the VPN (or offline mode) or else the game would relock.
I am using the network in the UK, getting a flawless HD live stream and the VOD is working perfect. I'm using Google Chrome on a HP laptop. The program I am using is Spotflux, you can find my guide to connect here:
For free users, we do not support torrenting software.
For premium users, we do support torrenting software but will comply with any DMCA or other requests forwarded to us related to illegal activity stemming from the use of that software. Thus, all premium users must employ their best judgment in the use of torrents.
So yes, they both ban torrents, AND log -- even on the 'premium' service.
Most of your questions have been answered, but as for Spotflux, I use it and I haven't had a problem. I'm on a Mac, however, so I don't know how well it works on a PC. I turn it off when it's not "in use" because there's usually a pop-up ad at the bottom of your browser.
Highly recommend Cyber Ghost.
Spotflux was shitty for me and leaked my dns on default.
Private Tunnel is the best by miles in terms of speed, but you only get a hundred mb, so it's to be used rarely in a pinch when you need a high speed vpn.
Dintr-un post mai vechi de-al meu.
If you confront them there is ways to block IPs from getting out! Route 1. Use Incognito or Route 2. Use Spotflux...Spotflux if what people use to get american nextflix, it harms nothing just gives out a random US IP address :)
once I played using Spotflux VPN connected to SEA server.. constant 530ms ping... I just spamming one second ahead all of my skill.. and luckily able to win with good teammates Dotabuff btw I don't recommend you to play with this high ping though.. this YOLO play..
In that case try Googling "Spotflux installation guide", "steam vpn guide", "steam cellphone tethering guide" or "Fix Steam blocked college network". If you don't have the know-how, put in the small effort needed to learn. There's guides all over the internet so It's really not that hard.
Many free VPNs don't support or allow torrenting. Quickly googling it looks like HSS and spotflux specifically don't allow it. Also some free VPNs will log & pass on any notices they get to your ISP.
Just pay for a VPN, it's worth it (and not that expensive).
I've been using TorGuard for 2+ years now. $19.99 for a full year is very reasonable.
PIA is also widely used, and comes highly recommended by others.
>Unfortunately, we cannot support the use of Bittorrent (or similar P2P file sharing protocols) on our network due to its widespread abuse in violating copyright laws.....
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're using our free service on Windows, only your web browsing will be routed through Spotflux. Any other applications, including torrenting applications, will use your regular connection.
Hola, Media hint, whatever one wants to use. There's plenty, I said one.
As for peer to peer, I know it is. So many stuff is peer to peer. Even freaking is peer to peer if you don't disable it. Windows updates same, so forth.
You don't need to have Hola for websites to track your ip+OS btw. So I also don't understand that part.
Are you gonna link something like this everytime mentions a piece of software that is peer to peer and basically TRACKS what you do?
Spotflux and Zenmate any better than Hola or is every free VPN super duper malicious?
Download a VPN, I used Spotflux, change the region in the VPN to AUS, open Steam, download the update and when steam says play on Fallout go to the top right click steam - offline mode - open steam again, close the VPN, play Fallout!
Hola? As in Spanish for hello?
I read the EULA. What's Spanish for 'hell no?'
I'm not a lover of sellin' bandwidth to others
Leaving me exposed to little and Big Brothers
I tried that mess, took it to the test, wasn't the best, now I'm doin' the rest.
Take your pick: PIA, Nord, or Spotflux
Been using them before Mos Def was on Rawkus
There's one called Spotflux that is fairly cheap and they offer a no strings attached free trial that is like 3 or 5 days. One subscription can be used across multiple devices and it is pretty easy to implement. No harm in checking it out.
If you're on Chrome then use ZenMate VPN from the Chrome store, shit's free.
If you're on a phone then try Spotflux or HotSpotShield but tbh if you live in the Middle East you probably have that anyway. :P
Use Spotflux and see if you can login. If you can, Contact your ISP to get it fixed. I had the same issue out of nowhere in one morning and i just called them up. They asked if im gaming on the connection and switched me to "some IP range". then i could play.
This is what I found on other forums, too.
I tried Ghost and Spotflux, only to have it fail at the same point. (Even made sure my ps4 was listed to be in the usa / uk by the ip)
Relay gets frustrating...
Also tried the DNS change to google dns, didn't help
Use Spotflux VPN, they have 3 days free trail with no credit card required and the quality is higher ( for me atleast) than using Beeps, i got 27mp/s on with my 40mp/s connection in Israel
Europeans.. Want to play Enemy within TODAY!?
Note: You will have to start Steam with Spotflux running everytime you want to play, until the official release day in your country.
Did you with the original Enemy Unknown, and yesterday with Enemy Within!
I actually have Spotflux. It's much nicer on pc and currently $10 USD a YEAR for unlimited use. Pretty insane deal and solid bandwidth. I need it to torrent on my ISP anyway so its well worth it for that alone.
Hmm I'll have to check that out and get back to you on that one. I think I recall hearing about BtGuard once or twice. I share the same concerns as you and wanna pirate so bad... I mean lots.
But what I can tell you is: I've been using Spotflux (a free VPN) for about a few month and still haven't gotten any warnings.
Also if you've yet to hear of these sites please check them out:
(OpenVPN, PPTP and IPSEC/L2TP VPN Tunnels
from only $3.33/mo*) the VPN that i use now since I couldn't figure out if spotflux was leaking my info to "Transparent DNS proxy"
Good luck mate. I'll check in after I look up info on BtGuard.
Edit: OH ye it's another vpn/proxy service... this is the first one i came across. I've heard that it leaks and never cared to check them out. Well it looks like most trust PIA much more and it's cheaper!
You need to use a VPN service such as Spotflux to redeem, preload and activate SR4. Also every time you run it unless you run Steam in offline mode. This thread has details -
Happens to me too. Struck me again last game for the fifth time, so I've installed a vpn server and it worked.
For some unknown reason I had to uninstall the vpn after the game in order to use my standard connection with the leagues client again (it wouldn't connect to service), but that's not a problem, takes less than a minute to install or uninstall.
For info, I've used Spotflux. Also, the connecting problem started happening since last Thursday (if not before).
>I soon after realized I had Spotflux on (A free vpn) which I suppose was used by a gold farmer or website advertiser or something prior to the creation of my account
Yeah. Most free VPNs use something called Shared IPs, which is one reason I stopped using my VPN unless I have to. These IPs can easily be used by anybody else, including illegitimate players.
My best advice is to send in an account help ticket and hope for the best. Unfortunately I don't think there's much that can distinguish you from a gold farmer since it is a new account, but I wish you the best of luck.
Media hint + Pandora. Media Hint is a small extension you install into the Google Chrome or Firefox browser that allows you to access Hulu, Pandora, Netflix and more. Works like a charm, free, no gimmicks.
Firefox Download here
I use it on Firefox so I am only linking this as it's all I've used.
Edit: Only works on a computer but is way faster than VPN and doesn't change other internet settings. For mobile I use Spotflux Mobile VPN + Spotify. Only need to use VPN once every 14 days to reset the "abroad' counter.
ah, I haven't read through the whole thing so I was just sharing my findings as I had used Spotflux for Netflix USA and it happened to work with the WWE Network even though they have a proxy blocking system.
> Have you successfully logged in/played in the past or are you new?
I have played successfully in the past! July 2, and some of July 3 (On a VPN)
> Where are you located (Country/State)?
> What is your ISP?
I have had success playing with a VPN (im using Spotflux, it's free but causes some lag)... I just want charter to get their shit together.
If you put this much effort in making a tutorial, why not simply upload your own gunz client and put it on a mirror site? Your description is wrong as well. Spotflux is a vpn in a pretty jacket.
Thanks for the effort though.
Spotflux free trial is worth a go if you're not technically inclined. Just hit a button and they'll reroute you through their VPN and should spoof your IP well enough to get past whatever filter they are running.
I can't guarantee the connection speed will be fast enough for HD streaming, though.
i dont live in the US so i had the same problem. I tried to use several php based proxies and other web tools but none of them worked. Then i remembered that i had installed another simple proxy program (a free VPN really) that i used to watch US Netflix. I tried it and it worked! i could access my digital shadow and it is so freaking cool. It's free and it displays some ads but it's not really that annoying. It's called Spotflux
Not as far as I'm aware. Just open Dota2 after you open Spotflux.
I was getting some connection error (in spotflux, not dota) when I first installed it, but just closing and re-opening spotflux fixed it.
Conservative movement thinking it corrupts minds. The task force dedicated to finding and disabling these sites from Korea is mostly made up of bored housewives.
You can get around it by installing something like Spotflux.
To make it even simpler: You basically download a software like Spotflux, and hit a button in that software to turn on the "protection", which means you can browse sites that were previously blocked now.
Spotflux. Used it for a while now on my Mac, PC and iOS devices. Great performance and filters ads and malware. Free for Mac/PC, a small yearly fee for good bandwidth on mobile. Works just fine with Netflix.
Same thing happened to me when unused Spotflux to watch netflix. Basically they ban you because hackers usually log on through a service like WTFAST or Spotflux, so it is harder to trace them. All I had to do was call in and answer some questions and I was unbanned no problem :-)
