Can I selectively use Getflix DNS servers for specific domains?

Some users with advanced knowledge of networking and DNS may want to use the Getflix DNS servers for requests to specific domains. Dnsmasq and bind are popular DNS servers that can be configured to do this. There is an example Dnsmasq config at the bottom of this article.

Domains to Send to Getflix DNS Servers

The domains listed below are high-level domains that can safely be passed to our servers in order to unblock services. Not all supported sites are listed here, as they share video services with other networks (e.g. Disney is not listed because it shares video services with ABC).
