    I'm confused on how the whole blocking updates thing works using a DNS like Tubehax. I've seen several say it occasionally goes down, and I've also seen the fact that Youtube is unaccessible. Is YT the only thing we can't access?

    Will I be able to download eShop updates (like for Splatoon, since that's the only game I really care about) and play online?

    Unfortunately, I can't find the Content Filtering option in my router settings, so my only option is to use a DNS.

    1. I found that it blocks mobile youtube, not regular, so you're fine
    2. You're better off with this DNS: 104.236.72.203
    3. NO UPDATES! Use NNU Patcher if you want to use eShop while blocking it.
    4. Online works fine.

    Why would you want to use the app? Web-version is way faster.

    It probably is, but I'm used to using the terrible app. It's more convenient for me just having the app there alongside my games.

    I also connect my phone to find and play videos from, which now that I think about is probably supported on the Web version as well.
