Back in November we told you about Media Hint, a Firefox and Chrome extension that once installed it allows you to use services like Hulu, Pandora, Neflix and Rdio from any country for free. Today, we’re going to tell you about another way to access these services ( and more ) if you live in an unauthorized region… like Narnia. Enter Hola Unblocker.
Hola Unlocker pretty much acts in the same way as Media Hint, but it doesn’t come just as a Firefox and Chrome extension. It also comes as a desktop client ( Windows-only for now. Mac version to come ), and it’s also available for Android devices.
Currently, Hola Unblocker will allow you to stream content from the following sites ( with more site to be added soon ):
That’s exciting right? Yeah, it is, but Hola Unlocker won’t stop here. It will also allow you to browse content faster. How, you ask? Well, here’s the explanation offered by the team:
How does Hola make the Internet faster?
- The Internet is slowed down by server response times, Internet congestion, round trip times, and poorly written communication stacks in operating systems. Hola removes these bottlenecks by securely caching content on peers as they view it, and later serving it up to other nearby peers as they need it. Hola also compresses communication between peers to further speed the net. As more people install and use Hola, the faster and less congested it will be!
Why do videos re-buffer less with Hola?
- Hola identifies multiple sources for your video and receives portions of the file from each of those sources, thus creating multiple sources and paths for your video and overcoming congested paths and servers.
Now all you need to do is visit Hola Unlocker and choose if you want to install the browser extension, or maybe the desktop client. Android users, just tap on that shrek icon, and the site will guide you with the next step(s)…
Once installed, just visit Hulu.com for example and enjoy any video….
