Download "Hola Free VPN" app (android/ios) then turn on the unblocker. If hola is working, you should be able to access Netflix.com now. Sign up the free 1 month account. You just need to put in any US accOunt (use Google maps search for any address postcode) then fill in your credit card details using the us postcode.

Once you successfully created the account, you can also use hola on your shield tv as vpn (if you're on myrepublic dun need vpn)

Then just go download a Netflix apk from external sources (because getting Netflix from Google play store is another troublesome journey)
OK got it. Installed netflix on my s6 edge first. Why resolution is so low? Using Hola.

Also anyway to get this to work on ios devices?

I will try on the Shield later.

Using hola, your internet speed is reduced significantly, hence the low res stream, since hola is free vpn.

If you use Netflix on shield tv with Ethernet, it should be a lot better. Best of course, is to use myrepublic coz they have free vpn (teleport)

Hola is also available on Apple app store. Also on desktop as chrome extension.

Don't wait too long though, if the speculation about the power supply having SGsafety sticker is true, once there's a Singapore distributor, Amazon will stop shipping to SG for this product.

I can wait, currently no 4k tv and i have a laptop hooked up to the living room tv anyway.

If the shield tv can confirm use for Skype with webcam, I can remove the laptop from the living room.

WHICH WEBCAMS ARE SUPPORTED BY SHIELD?

SHIELD supports webcams that have Android TV support. Logitech’s family of webcams offer this support today.

Here's a video of someone getting a webcam to work with the Shield Android TV (SATV)

Another one with Skype running.

I wrote to Amazon customer support, and mentioned that I'm a US resident working in Singapore, and I'd like to still receive the $30 code. Because they can't give me the promo code for Google Play Credit, Amazon gave me $30 amazon credit instead.

Lol, I think cannot use same trick twice baa. You can try ask them for the code and tell them you didn't know it's only for U.S residents. Say maybe you might return the item if don't have free credit

update: Nevermind, found the fix. Hard reboot the SATV and it was working.


I'm having an issue with casting YouTube from phone (WiFi) to SATV (Ethernet) can anyone help me?

1. SATV (v1.3) is on ethernet, phone casting youtube via wifi.
2. On my phone , I can see "Shield" as a device to cast to.
3. Once I select "shield" to cast to, youtube app on the phone just shows "connecting" and after awhile, the phone's app goes back to video selection, and nothing has been cast to SATV.

Casting from phone works perfectly when I use Wifi on SATV network.

Can you guide me how to check if my ethernet is on the same subnet as my wifi network?

How do I set the "pass through" ?

I'm using ASUS AC-RT87U with Merlin firmware. I'm also a complete network noob. I would really appreciate a step-by-step guide on setting up the Ethernet / Wifi.
