I am having issues streaming Paramount Plus like many other Samsung TV users. I found the solution in a post a couple of months ago. Someone gave a different DNS server setting to use other than 8.8.8.8. I tried it and it worked. Paramount plus streamed perfectly. On May 3rd I called Samsung technical support and gave them the information trying to be helpful A few days ago I mistakenly reset my IP settings and lost the new DNS server setting. I did not have it written down and have not been able to find the post again. I called Samsung thinking that they would now have the information I gave them, but they did not. Very Frustrated! If anyone has seen that post and knows the DNS server setting that works with the Paramount Plus app, please let me know. Thank You!

@Orangeman That is the Google DNS value. Checkout https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns

Thanks for your reply. I have tried these settings and a bunch more that my internet provider gave me and Samsung Technical Support asked me to try. The only one that worked is the one in the post I mentioned that I have now lost and can not find again on the internet. I can't believe I did not make record of it.

 It wasn't the name of a DNS Server it was the actual series of numbers to replace 8.8.8.8. The person that did the post listed the correct numbers that did work with the Paramount Plus app when I manual put them in. That's what I am looking for. Thanks!
