What is SmartDNS?

SmartDNS is a NordVPN feature that allows you to set up unrestricted access to streaming content on your smart TV and other devices.

In order to use SmartDNS, you have to whitelist your IP address without a VPN connection - it should be your original ISP IP address. Make sure to whitelist IPv4 IP address, not IPv6 as we do not support IPv6 yet.

You can activate the SmartDNS feature at the Nord Account dashboard.

Keep in mind that SmartDNS does not protect your devices as a VPN connection, it just provides access to streaming content. Keep in mind that it may not work with all streaming services. Here is a list of SmartDNS supported streaming services:

  • ABC Go (US region)
  • Amazon Prime (US region)
  • BBC iPlayer
  • Discovery (US region)
  • Disney Plus (German region)
  • Fox Now / Sports Go / News / Showtime (US region)
  • HBO Now (US region)
  • HULU (US region)
  • Netflix (US region, only Netflix Originals)

Here are some articles to help you set up our SmartDNS feature on your device:
