Access Hulu, Pandora, BBC iPlayer and more with Hola Unblocker
Last month i wrote and entry on how to access Hulu outside U.S. with the help of a Firefox extension: Access Hulu outside US with MediaHint . With it, i can watch Hulu and BBC’s iPlayer without problems. I haven’t tried the other services though.
Now, there is another one making waves called Hola Unblocker, which basically let’s you access Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, BBC iPlayer, cbs.com and fox.com and through the installation of the Windows client you get to unlock a few more: aetv.com, channel4.com, play.google.com, syfy.com, travelchannel.com, usanetwork.com, youtube.com and more.
I installed it on my Chrome browser to test it and at first i had some issues, but then i managed to get it run. It does what it says with the websites i am most interested in and those are: Hulu and BBC iPlayer. I can view the content and the speed is really good.
I did test some other services and i got access, so i guess the only thing i can say now is: so far, so good.
