Prime Video detects VPN/Proxy when using NextDNS

Hi all,

After installing the Apple TV profile Netflix recognises a VPN and does not play any videos anymore. I have removed and tested various Blocklist and security settings, added a couple of blocked amazon domains to the allowlist but cannot get it to work.

Does any of you have encountered a similar problem and know any workaround?

  • It's probably an issue with VPN/DNS IP not matching up. In any case try it without NextDNS and see if that fixes it. If it does, setting it up on the router instead of a profile might help so the VPN can use its own DNS. Altho this is just what I think is happening so you should test it out. 

    • Hey you are probably right. After deleting the profile it works again. Strange that it is only Prime Video that has this problem and Netflix continues to work with NextDNS. I don't think I can put NextDNS on the router though as ProtonVPN does not allow custom DNS addresses and I do not want to remove the router based VPN.
