Just want my Netflix and Chill

Its been a rough evening. I’ve talked to ~7 different “support” folks at Netflix, and 1 Person from Comcast.

It all started when I tried to watch some Netflix:

From there things just escalated…

I admit it. I got carried away

At one point I was on 3 chats and a phone call with Netflix. Im Sorry.

But seriously why are they asking me to do a DNS Flush? I’m hoping somebody can learn me on this one. What does Flushing my DNS Resolver Cache have to do with Netflix perceiving my connection as being a VPN.

Anyway it just kept getting worse:

Finally I broke down. I called Comcast, and I reset my Modem / Router. I took a production website offline in the process, just so I could watch some Netflix. 

Luckily it was 130 AM Est so it probably wasnt a big deal

But I was just felt helpless with responses like this:

Or this:

I mean, at least they were consistent, they were all convinced it was my DNS:

Anyway, I finally gave up, almost.

I tweeted all these folks:

Im hoping that’ll help me get this fixed this weekend. Was hoping to rewatch Firefly this weekend…
