Avast SecureLine VPN is preventing Netflix from running
« on: January 03, 2020, 11:55:35 PM »
Good day, I recently purchased Avast's SecureLine VPN a few days ago after discussing any constraints in using Netflix with the VPN (I am in the US) to access my Netflix account and was assured by support (via chat) that all I needed to do was use either the Gotham City or New York Servers (the servers do say "streaming"), however after purchasing the VPN, I tried to access my Netflix USA account and after logging in when trying to play one of the movies, I received the following error message:

"Whoops, something went wrong... Streaming Error.  You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy. Please turn off any of these services and try again. For more help, visit  For additional assistance in resolving this issue, please visit out Help Center.  Error Code: M7111-5059"

Again, I was assured by your support folks that by connecting to "Gotham City" or "New York" at least would resolve this issue but it is STILL an issue.  I did purchase this VPN under that assumption. Can anyone please help to resolve this ASAP.  Thank you

I reported your other post on this topic to Avast. Let's see if that helps.
