I have been unable to access Netflix via unblockTV last night and this morning.
Everything is activated successfully and I can access French geolocked content.
For Netflix, I just get an HTTP error:

503 Service Unavailable

I'm connecting from Canada and I can access Netflix Canada so Netflix is not down.

Please advise.

It looks like a intermittent problem (perhaps overloaded server?). If I get a 503, I've found that I can do a page refresh and usually get Netflix access the 2nd or 3rd time.

At what point do you get the error? While streaming? Does this happen during certain time of the day? Servers are not overloaded.

I get the error when I open the browser and click on the bookmark for http://movies.netflix.com/WiHome . I've experienced this problem in the evenings (EST/EDT).
The DNS query to 172.108.90.251 for movies.netflix.com returns 155.94.241.137 which returns 503 in response to the subsequent HTTP GET request for /WiHome.
Changing the bookmark to use HTTPS instead of HTTP resolves the problem.

Without unblockTV enabled, the HTTP GET request for http://movies.netflix.com/WiHome results in a 301 which redirects to https://www.netflix.com/WiHome .

I'm using Chrome which I learned has QUIC enabled by default. I've disabled it in case it was interfering with unblockTV but still get the 503 on the HTTP GET but not on HTTPS.

Netflix seem to redirect http to https. You may want to update your bookmark. Have you run into any issues with https url?
