How to Set Up KeepSolid SmartDNS on Sony TV

Sony stands in one row with the largest manufacturers of electronic devices. Their Smart TVs are quite popular and let users enjoy the functions of an ordinary HD television and a number of other features. One of the main advantages is surely the ability to connect to the internet. This provides an amazing opportunity of streaming movies and TV shows onto your Sony TV via such services as Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime, etc. 

It may seem that the whole world of streaming media is all yours. But unfortunately, the amount of available content isn’t the same everywhere and varies from location to location. For example, if you are in Europe and want to watch American Netflix, you’ll face the irritating Content unavailable in your region message. Accessing US Netflix from Europe without a special tool will not be possible. 

This is where KeepSolid SmartDNS comes in and saves the day. Changing DNS on your Sony Smart TV conceals your real physical location and lets you bypass geo-restrictions, unblock US Netflix, and other streaming services no matter where you are. With our step-by-step guide, you’ll easily do the required Sony TV setup and increase the range of media available to you.   

Important notice before you start your Sony TV setup

We recommend you to write down your current Sony TV DNS settings before you switch to our DNS addresses. This information will be required when you decide to revert to your original configurations. 

How to change DNS on Sony Smart TV

  1. Press Home on your Sony TV
  2. Choose Setup 
  3. Proceed to Network > Network Setup
  4. Depending on how your Sony TV is connected to the Internet, choose Wired Setup or Wireless Setup 
  5. Select Custom
  6. Enter the addresses of KeepSolid SmartDNS servers in the Primary and Secondary DNS fields. See our DNS server addresses below: 

    62.210.136.158 - European DNS

Note: You should use the DNS server closest to your real location as the Primary DNS server and the other server as the secondary one for your Sony Smart TV.

  1. Restart your Sony TV, so that the changes come into force.  

Note: Each time your IP changes, our service will stop working for you. To continue using the service, make sure to update your IP address via your User Office or KeepSolid SmartDNS app. 

That’s it! You’ve successfully completed your Sony TV setup with KeepSolid SmartDNS configurations. Once you’ve changed your Sony DNS server address with our US or European DNS, you can watch American Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, or Amazon Prime wherever you are, with absolutely no restrictions.
