How to Set Up KeepSolid SmartDNS on Apple TV

How to change your DNS settings on Apple TV

Note: Before you change the DNS settings on Apple TV, make sure to write down your current DNS addresses. You will need the information if you need to revert to your original settings. 

To unblock streaming services with our KeepSolid SmartDNS app, you have to register your IP address. Check out how to manage your IP address in the KeepSolid SmartDNS App and your KeepSolid User Office here

Also, we recommend you to block Google DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) on your router, otherwise you may not be able to bypass geo-restrictions and access the desired content. 

1. Navigate to your Apple TV Settings via the Home screen.

2. In the Settings section, proceed to General > Network.
