Note: It will only allow you to insert one DNS server address at a time. So only use either one of the two DNS server addresses earlier.

Click Done.



Step 3: MyTelly IP Registration on Network (Completion)


Enter the MyTelly Setup page on our website again.


Scroll down and click on Register This Address.  


Note: This will register your IP address and also test your DNS setup and indicate whether you have changed the DNS settings correctly.





Please note that if you only changed the DNS settings on your Apple TV 3 and not on your computer / other device, the authentication page will return the following error:

Please do not worry about this message as our servers have already registered your IP address as per the screenshot above.

To learn more of the MyTelly errors, please refer to our article here: MyTelly errors - Your DNS setting is not configured correctly. 


Note: You will not have to do it again unless your IP address changes. Also, any device on the same network will be able to use the service as long as you've set our DNS in their settings.

 

Now that you have setup and registered your system you can go ahead and access the TV sites that can be accessed with the service!
