Momentum: Gives you an awesome background image that changes everyday on your new tab screen. Also adds a todo list manager there which is super useful. and gives the weather of your current location. Super useful app, Momentum and AdBlock are must haves.
Zenmate is also very useful.
If you have a Chromecast, get VideoStream. It lets you stream mkv files to your Chromecast. Made my Chromecast essential to my tv setup.
For Turkish people - the best alternative is a chrome extension called 'Zenmate'. Easy to connect and very good speeds. Avoid Hotspot shield.

Even though people are here suggesting Hola Extension - after vigorous testing I came to the conclusion that Zenmate extension for Google Chrome is the best and easiest to use.
You can choose between the following countries to browse from.
Hola is terrible as you can also get the instance of being unlucky if one of those IPs has been filtered as spam and you browse on here while waiting for netflix.. you get shadowbanned (speaking from experience).
If people are looking for free alternatives I'm currently using Zenmate, which works fairly well for everything.
You can get Zenmate or Hola and watch it on Yahoo. It involves 2 extra clicks once and then Community gets an extra official viewer and makes more money :)
Edit: Guys, I get it. It's a matter of principle to you to pirate these things and stunt Community's growth. Yahoo deserve it because their motives are to fuck your country over, not because of legal issues/revenue issues. And I guess Community deserve it for being on Yahoo instead of staying dead or something, I don't know. I do get the point though, so you can all stop replying to me with the same message.
Awesome plugin, single mouse click activates it, another click to pick your region. It automatically goes back to the last region you used. I only use it for Netflix and just have it set to UK.
I don't know a lot about Zenmate specifically, but...
You know the saying "if the service is free, you're the product"? In the case of free VPNs, this is often taken quite literally. If it's not inserting you into a botnet like Hola does, it's probably installing adware and prompting you with product offers regularly, or at the very least selling information about your usage and browsing history to the highest bidder.
People should always be wary towards these.
Get the Zenmate addon for Chrome or Hola Unblocker. Enjoy Netflix from every country.
If you watch Netflix on phones, tablets etc then get a router that allows you to use a VPN from the router or put a VPN on your laptop/desktop and share your internet connection to other devices from there.
Don't. Hola is shady af (don't have the source on mobile, but just google it. It basically abuses your connection for things you have no control over). I'd recommend you Zenmate, a free browser expansion. Once the page has loaded, you can switch it off, that way your downstream doesn't suffer:)
Edit: best I could find real quick
Livestreams or recorded ones? That'd be awesome if it was the former so I don't have to hassle with some low quality streams. I just need to enable Zenmate for this (it's a good free alternative to the paid VPNs)
Funny thing is, I didn't even notice. My friends said that Github has been blocked. I turned of my DNS and checked and it worked fine.
After few minutes of trying to fail accessing; I remembered that my router had DNS settings changed so I used 4G to connect and it was blocked.
tl,dr: Everyone uses DNS / VPN. Few years ago Youtube was blocked, and when Erdogan was asked about this, he said: "I can access youtube, you should enter too." ^^*source
Edit: DNS doesn't work anymore. Welp time to use Zenmate.
Hola sucks, use Zenmate.
Hola works by using several IP's including yours in the system. If I was from Rome, they'd use my Roman IP address so someone could connect to Rome.
Therefore someone could use Hola and upload videos with, let's say, pedophilic content. Hola could assign them your IP, which would earn you a knock on your door at 2am the next week.
If you use chrome you should install the 'Zenmate' extension. It's a super easy way to trick your computer/Internet into thinking you are in another country (I think you can switch from US, UK, Germany, and maybe somewhere in Asia on the fly, it's real useful).
Yep, changing DNS server to non-finnish one and using Zenmate let's me access normally from finland. (got the same page as OP before doing both)
The block seems to be done by admin (), not Finnish gov/isps. He had trouble at Finnish border because he is on some blacklist? possibly because of the site?
Never use american league pass. Waste of money.
Get yourself an ILP subscription. I believe india is the cheapest at the moment. Just gotta use something like Zenmate or another in-browser VPN service.
You'll get every game regardless of location that way.
What does Hola Unblocker do? Because MediaHint is only useful if you're not in the US. I, however, was using Hola Unblocker to access videos exclusive to Canada and the UK
Edit: Never mind, scrolled down and saw the comments about Zenmate and Proxmate. Carry on.
Please stop using Hola. Generally if a service is free, you are the product. In this case, Hola uses their span of users to create areas in the world of available VPN locations, however while using the service, while you aren't using your IP, Hola has made it available for somebody else in the world to use. This means that you are responsible for whatever a stranger's internet traffic is, and your IP is attached to you / your ISP you. For example, somebody could watch / download child porn with your IP and you would be at fault.
If you really want to stay free, switch to Zenmate. There are also several alternatives for <$5/month that drastically increase your speed over free alternatives. Regardless, stop using Hola.
Also, if this post gets found by people on /r/subredditoftheday and NRL interests you, watch the games tonight! There are two on at 7:30 and 9:30 AEST. If your TV station doesn't show it, try Provided you're not in Australia, it should work, and if you are, download Hola or Zenmate to bypass the region lock.
And if you can, visit the match threads here during the game too!
The uploader has not made this video available in your country.
Edit: Nvm, used Zenmate
Didn't Hola have some issues as well? There was a massive clusterfuck about how they didn't really protect your privacy and left some endpoints vulnerable.
I'm using Zenmate, but they have UK as a "premium" option.
/u/Azzamate is a streamer that has confirmed that he will be 'showing' the game. It will be posted to /r/soccerstreams, I will post it here when it is up.
HD English, 3500kb/s 60fps. (Apparently geo-blocked in Deutschland, you probably have to use a VPN like Zenmate.)
I use Zenmate usually. The problem is some of the websites block VPNs or you need to get lucky for you to get past without them noticing. I live in Canada so it's not AS bad for me but the US really does get so many of the good deals it's not even funny.
BBC one live is free
If you are outsite UK and using chrome, use Zenmate plugin which is free (and the one i am currently using)
edit: Give it time to stream, depending on your speed, the quality picks up!!!
We use free ones. I've heard only a couple of times people buying paid VPN services, and that's to have access to American websites like Hulu, or Netflix before it was available in Turkey. I use Zenmate for blocked pages, Hola Unblocker for American websites. MoonVPN & Opera on mobile.
I also dislike 's blackout restrictions, and was actually unaware of the restrictions until after purchasing . This will get downvoted, because it has in the past. But OP, if you want to watch in-market games on , download this extension. It is called Zenmate, and somehow hides your location. The link is for a Chrome browser, but if you have a different browser, just type Zenmate into Google.
Having 20% of teams blacked-out is totally unfair, and I hope this will solve your problems, as it solved mine.
Honestly for free alternatives you don't have much at the moment. Proxmate and Zenmate are fairly popular but I would suggest currently.
A good vpn is PIA:
Honestly do not touch Hola. Incredibly shady shit going on there.
In what country? I'm in Norway and only see season 1 and 2. Even though I used Zenmate to try USA, England and Canada, I still couldn't find season 3.
EDIT: Not really sure why I'm being downvoted. I'm paying for my Netflix account, and would just like to know where to watch Peaky Blinders, as the Norwegian selection is atrocious.
Watched a bit of it. It's very newbie friendly, and basically tailored towards those who know nothing about League.
The thing they've going for them, however, from a veteran player's point of view, is that they have got Deman casting for them (I do not believe!)
The stream only works in UK, so if you're outside UK, use Zenmate for Chrome to unlock the stream. It's a very easy to use extension and won't take more than a minute to get you up and running.
Hola is the most popular globally but I'd recommend Zenmate every time. I get far better speeds and stability from the UK.
Ballstreams is super cheap, you can also get a browser VPN(Zenmate or some shit) and just buy it MUCH cheaper from another country.
I got mine from india this year, it was like 190 or something in dollarydoos.
When a stream goes online it's served only from the San Fransisco Twitch server. As a stream gets more viewers it gets distributed to more servers. If a stream stays on a low view-count it'll only be served by the SF server and if you have a bad connection to that server you'll buffer to no end. I figured when Amazon acquired Twitch for a billion dollars they'd have been able to increase server capacity, but apparently not.
EDIT: Zenmate and other VPN services fix the issue because they offer a different route to the server which is less congested.
Zenmate for firefox will redirect you through a swiss location (you can chose other countries like USA but the swiss VPN is the fastest for Germany). 2 clicks to turn it on then simply reload the site.
E: GEMA sucks.
Just an FYI, Hola uses your connection as an exit node so someone could be doing something very illegal and it would appear to be coming from your computer. It can also eat through your bandwidth if you don't have unlimited internet. I believe options such as Zenmate are better but I personally stay away from all of those browser extensions for the most part
If you're in Canada just go to and you'll be able to watch it. Not before the Habs and Sens go into quadruple overtime causing us all to miss the first two periods though. If you're not in Canada like I am you can use Zenmate for Opera/chrome/firefox and get the free one week trial and you'll be able to set it to Canada so you can watch. If you have any other trouble with that then r/NHLStreams always works though sometimes the VLC links are broken.
Do not get Hola. It can use your computer as an exit port for some seriously shady activities and land you in a heap of trouble. Get Zenmate instead (I know you were already told but the other explanation was under a buried comment so I figured I'd reiterate so that it's more visible)
Doesn't hola work by letting users share their connection with others in different parts of the world? I wouldn't want others doing potentially nefarious things with my connection. It's kinda like being an end node for Tor.
Correct me if I'm wrong but Zenmate is another extension that does the job but doesn't share your connection with others. Only downside is it works in less countries. You can still get UK US and Germany though.
For people inside the UK. ITV is streaming it for free.
Could use Hola or any other VPN like Zenmate or Browsec and enter a London pincode if you live outside the UK!
Doesn't Zenmate just overcome there restrictions?
When ever I have issues I change to say Germany for my "network" listed on the Google Chrome application and presto - free media.
There are DVDs for (all?) the seasons. It's been available via Netflix in some countries, to the world by way of Hola or Zenmate. There's many sites where you could look, that hosts them.
"Finding Drag Race is not for the faint of heart. One must be completely prepared to defeat their inner saboteur, and become one of those sweet and sensitive souls, who uncover life's cruel hoax. Then and only then can you become a crystallized pirate bitch ready for the torrent runway." - Malcolm Luther Gandhi Theresa X
Get yourself a super long gmail then register and confirm for a free 7 day premium.
After the premium period has expired, log out and re-register. However, this time you put a dot between two letters in your really long email (e.g. -> ).
Rinse and repeat, moving the dot to the next set of letters ( -> ).
The confirmation email will always go to your original email () because google does not register the dots in the email, but zenmate sees it as another unique email.
Might be a hassle but it's pretty good. Currently on Indihome and I can access Reddit fine through zenmate's singapore server (premium). Zenmate also has a mobile app and you can use the account on all your devices.
Or you can try those disposable emails but I haven't tried that yet.
If you use Chrome use an add on called Zenmate to change ur ISP to another country. eg england to watch BBC and Iplayer, for free, If you use Firefox use Proxmate to do the same. Watch Hulu etc for free. Let the viewing lets change the government and their backward policies.....
People of Hong Kong and Occupy Central can surpass internet restrictions with the chrome extension Zenmate. Internet freedom = democracy.
Please retweet & spread the word.
Zenmate is a great proxy that allows you to access blocked sites, and no one can crack it.
Of course they can, every VPN provider can. But in this case, the developer of Proxmate (which works pretty well and is really fast compared to others like Zenmate) sits in Germany, which means they have to follow strict laws - which have serious repercussions in Germany if you don't (we're not just talking "Out of business"-repercussions, we're talking about long times in jail).
rugby league or union? if you're streaming league, you can use to stream NRL matches in HD ad free (it's streamed by the NRL to countries without broadcast deals, just use a VPN or Hola/Zenmate)
18.104.22.168 is a Zenmate/Zenguard server operated on the LeaseWeb network, second and third are owned by LeaseWeb as well (Nobis/Ubiquity was acquired by them). I am 99% sure that the other 2 are anonymous VPN providers as well, meaning they won't have logs.
So when I had Intl League Pass I used the chrome extension Zenmate. There is another extension called Hola too, but I somehow remember something shady going on with that one so I just stuck to Zenmate.
Zenmate is free and has a premium edition.
I just checked and Romania is one of the free options, as is Hong Kong. Purchasing League pass for the entire year for every team and every game is $131 from Romania.
Although premium for Zenmate is only like 4.99 for an entire year and you could try other countries as well. There might be better choices out there but that's the one that I used.
It doesn't have to be fast because like I said, after you start the stream you can turn off the extension or vpn and just use your own connection. Or at least that's how it worked when I was using it.
I have had the same issue since a couple of days on KPN and I fixed it just now. It seems like KPN might be throttling Twitch which means the ISP intentionally limits the bandwith of connections coming from the Twitch server which is causing these sudden lags. The thing that worked for me is downoading the Zenmate extension for chrome which fixed all my problems. I read somewhere that this fixed it for other people and as far as I can tell it works like a sort of VPN, rerouting incoming connections so KPN doesn't know that the Twitch stream is coming from the Twitch server. There is also a Zenmate app for mobile which works like a charm too.
I don't know for sure if KPN is throttling Twitch or why, all I know is that I can view Source quality streams again without buffering every 5-10 seconds.
I work around the corner from Zenmate in Berlin so I met a couple of there guys before in bars etc. a) They have a pay/premium user model now b) I asked about this as it was a thing a while back. b) Flashplayer causes IP leaks if it's running and isn't controlled using an extension/internet options c) Zenmate's servers are in Germany, I also work with Internet business in my own job. German Data law (probably as a legacy of the Stasi + Nazi times) is extremely tight and paranoid about this kind of thing for any German registered company.
TIL BBC blocks people in the UK trying to visit their own site, because of their fucking TV license fees. Apparently because people in my country pay money to the BBC, we're not allowed access to parts of their site that other people, who don't pay the TV license tax, can access.
EDIT: All hail Zenmate.
Think of the Internet as a mail service...
Tor would be like putting your mail in a very strong safe, sending it to a random guy, which takes off the "from" address and replaces it with his own, then securing the rest of the address information (e.g your (figurative) fingerprints) and gives it to another random guy, and so on until it gets sent to the recipient.
VPNs, however, would be more like sending your mail to a super-secure mailing system, then arriving at the system's HQ, before sending the information to the recipient.
Zenmate is a VPN.
Combining both of them is a BAD idea, unless you want to step off legal boundaries... Source
For people who cannot buy the bundle due to region restrictions, use a region changer (for instance, Zenmate for Chrome) and use Amazon payment to buy the bundle. (I tried Paypal, but it auto cancelled.)
sorry non-americans, americentrism strikes again!
I have no idea if they have any way to legally watch if you are outside the US, but I imagine ~~non-americans~~ dirty foreigners can use a proxy service like Zenmate or Hola
Better, yes. But it seems to force itself into all tabs. You can't turn it on for one tab selectively, which means if you like to look at other stuff while you're watching Netflix, you're going to be doing it all through an often slow-as-balls proxy. For me, loading gifs, for example, is 10x slower with Zenmate enabled.
It also doesn't have nearly as many region options.
What I hate about 4oD is the ads. AdBlock doesn't work on their site. There is a little trick though, you can start the video with AdBlock disabled then immediately turn it on. You watch the first 2 ads, but it skips the ones in between.
If you're from outside the UK and want to watch it, I suggest using Zenmate chrome extension. It's super easy to install and use.
Zenmate ist eine in Deutschland registrierte Firma, somit würde ich denen absolut nicht vertrauen.
not that I can find the source now, but pretty sure Zenmate was leaking info too.
Truth is, free VPNs are pretty shit, if you're in anyway security concious. You're better off finding something that, whilst you pay for it, isn't going to compromise you
I'd use Zenmate over Hola, Hola is bad.
God bless lazy webdevs, hoping they don't fix it in time for next week!
I used to use Hola until I looked it up and it was confirmed bad. I seen people recommend Zenmate as an alternative and I dug around with that for a bit and couldn't see anything negative about it. The rule is... if it's free, then you are the product, ie - hola. However, Zenmate has an optional premium version that gives access to all regions rather than the free version giving a select few (USA being one of them).
Edit: That being said, always keep your guard up.
Wait I thought you were a filthy non-American (and non-Canadian I suppose but that's not the end of the world.) I bet you don't even have a Nielsen box, MUCH LESS A TV. I bet you use Hola or Zenmate to watch it with Adblock, OR TORRENT IT LIKE A HORRIBLE PERSON. Do you even watch the whole episode BEFORE you post in the reaction thread? You don't pay Logo's bills. You know who does? Jinkx Monsoon. She has FIVE New York Times Reviews.
Haven't caught Untucked yet but I have no doubt that Trixie was DELUSIONAL and didn't even know what jet-set means.
It's available on 4od if you use something like Zenmate (I assume, for those outside the UK) and you can get adblock there by pausing adblock then unpausing adblock whilst the video buffers.
Might be helpful for some people.
Since Zenmate made the UK a premium option I have to watch it 7 hours after the fact like some sort of pleb :(
I'm liking Flora so far, she reminds me of a Scottish Martha who I loved last series. Liking Tamal too, his first cake was very pretty. Also Paul 2.0 should stick around just for the comedic elements.
Paul looks like he absolutely loathes Stu and his stupid hat. I'm pretty sure he's gone.
Arg, I feel so bad for that lady and her cake. After all that and they say it tastes like rubber. :(
Welp, Stu is gone, I bet rubber cake lady is relieved. Now I just need to find a decent VPN by next week so I can actually watch it live.
You could use a VPN. Two free VPNs I know of are Zenmate. I've used Zenmate some, but haven't used Hola. I've heard that Hola is less secure, though.
A few words of advice:
1. Don't use Hola - they use your computer as a node in a p2p network, and they sell your viewing history to advertisers. If you want to use a browser extension, try one of the German companies like Zenmate or Proxmate that don't violate your privacy.
2. If you want to try an unblocking DNS, why not use one of the many fine Australian-based services that are cheaper, such as dns4me?
3. You'll still have to block Google DNS in your router in order for the Chromecast to work. This can be done by the static route method in most consumer routers. But be aware that Netflix has made changes to their Android app so that it won't play titles on the Android device if Google DNS is blocked - you have to select Chromecast as the destination first. Netflix continues to make changes to their Android app on a weekly basis, so expect further problems.
I was using Hola until about 2-3 months ago and it was causing an increasing number of problems for me, including just not working at all for Netflix for periods of time. I swapped over to Zenmate and so far haven't any problems with it at all.
Hola has the advantages in that you can use it to change your country for a single website and has a much larger number of countries you can appear to be from. Zenmate changes what country you are from for your entire browser and has a painfully limited number of countries you can appear to be from - if you're already in America and/or are using to watch a wide variety of different countries' Netflixs then it wouldn't be that great The only countries you can use it to appear to be from are: America, the UK, Hong Kong, Germany and Switzerland.
Anyone having issues with LiveStream, and if you're using Zenmate (although I don't see why it wouldn't work with other services).
Load up LiveStream with Zenmate and get the feed working, then turn off Zenmate. Now your internet isn't being run through a VPN/Geo-bypasser, now it's just your internet.
The feed should still be running, and if it worked and your internet can handle it, it should be a clean HD stream.
Zenmate is only free at basic speeds. You can sort of make the high speed version (which you'd need for HD streaming) free by getting a one week trial over and over again for confirming your (=a throwaway) email address, but the idea is that you buy it.
Não conheço o Zenmate e nem sei como é que as duas extensões funcionam mas para não deves usar o Hola:
VPNs ou proxies grátis não devem ser usadas, se não não estás a pagar pelo o serviço o produto és tu.
Zenmate appears to be some rando VPN service. There's absolutely no assurance that they're not monitoring all of your traffic, and they want to install their weird closed source crap on your machine if you want to use it. tor, on the other hand, doesn't route unencrypted through a single untrusted 3rd party. In fact, when hidden services are accessed, there is no unencrypted traffic through 3rd parties. All of the software is open source, and there's some compelling evidence that NSA, the most advanced anti-privacy operation known, can only deanonymize a small fraction of tor users block Facebook.
Zenmate has to be the biggest honeypot I have ever seen. I've been following it closely since it was in Beta and it has been clear they have been in dire financial straights ever since they released because their free plan was too generous (Very high speeds unlike every other free VPN), so who knows what lengths they go through to stay afloat, because I have not even seen or heard one person who actually pays for it.
PIA (Private Internet Access). It's cheap, and they don't log (Been proven in court x2). If you want to obtain it anonymously do this; Change your appearance and wear clothes that cover your face, Go a town or two over and buy a prepaid Visa or Mastercard. Now wait 9 months so that you are sure there are no images of you on CCTV. Now, get a chrome extension VPN (Any VPN, I use Zenmate). Go to any mail site (I recommend protonmail or tutanota) and sign up with a name that has no correlation to you. Next, Go to the PIA website and purchase via card using that email to sign up. You have obtained a no logging VPN anonymously. Hypothetically, of course.
Use Zenmate, Hola works by routing you through other people who have Hola (in the country you want), so if somebody with less-than-good intentions were to use Hola and connect to your country - and it went through your connection - you could get in trouble for whatever they look at/do on the internet through your connection.
I've known about the bad Hola shit for ages and have been a bit annoyed that Hola became the one free browser vpn that people recommend on reddit. I use and recommend Zenmate instead. They had a privacy breach a while ago but it was resolved and is safe to use again.
Shouldn't use Hola btw, it's not safe. However I see that Zenmate put UK on their premium :\ pity. So you should delete Hola right after watching the final to be safe.
China may have tv rights for the NRL. As /u/EastAfrica1 suggested use a VPN or a browser extension like Hola or Zenmate. No one recommends using Hola anymore as they use free users as an end point which basically means someone could be using your IP address, whether they using to view footy or CP is the dodgy part.
If you do decide to use Hola or Zenmate through your browser. Countries known to work are Germany, Sweden, Romania, Japan. Pretty much all nations that don't have telly rights. I trick to get better stream if you're using a browser is to load up the stream and when it's loaded turn off Zenmate so you browser will be using your internet connection straight, so you get the fastest possible speeds.
Wow, scary stuff. I use Zenmate that does the same business, albeit with fewer free options. Use Germany for Livestream and it works just as well as Hola.
Zenmate also have apps if you use the Hola app (like I did until today) for phone or tablet.
Zenmate pour changer de pays et bof, c'est basé sur une émission québécoise (sûrement basée sur cette chaîne youtube). Sauf qu'il y a des moyens derrière et des invités connus, au final d’ailleurs la cuisine on s'en fout dans l'émission, c'est juste pour faire parler l'invité.
you can change your location with Zenmate addon for chrome.
Or you can go to /r/footballhighlights and click the monday night football. go to the pre match coverage and skip to around halfway or so (iirc) until you find it.
Its well worth the watch.
Have you tried
It's free if you have a German IP (so get it via Zenmate), and it shows it in HD, with around 0 lag.
It's technically an official stream too, so you won't have the typical bullshit that comes with all those shady ass rojadirecta streams
There's an extension called Zenmate that I often use to access websites or videos, etc. not allowed in my country. It's available on the Chrome store, once downloaded, you can change your location to the United States and access the main Oscar website for live streaming.
I find Zenmate to be superior to Hola unblocker, Hola is hardcoded to only work with specific sites rather than just be a proxy for any traffic in your browser.
Zenmate gives you far more flexibility even for UK/Europe proxies and works more of the time.
I go to an IT school where we get $1,600 laptops. We have the same computer all four years. Except they take them back during summer and reset them and put more restrictions on to block what were doing. But of course, this is an IT school and once one person finds bypasses, it spreads like wildfire.
I found the best solution to bypass the network website blocker was a chrome extension Zenmate. It's a great VPN and they don't have a way to block you from getting it really. Nowadays you won't find one person without Zenmate from my school. Even the teachers...
Adventure Time Battle Party is a MOBA featuring characters from the Adventure Time cartoon. It's much simpler than other MOBAs, but it has an unique charm that even veteran LoL or Dota players can enjoy. The most unique feature is the levelling system; instead of upgrading your spells, you choose a backpack full of items before the game, and spend points to improve the items inside. This means that one character might play very differently depending on your equipped backpack.
The site can only be accessed from America, but you can use the Zenmate extension for Chrome to play from other countries. I tried using Hola and it didn't work, so I'm not sure if there are other ways to play from outside the US.
> Zenmate not available for Firefox
Isn't that what Tor is for? Or virtually any other proxy/VPN service?
> Poor fullscreen implementation on Firefox, even with FullScreen+ addon
Any specific problems you're having?
> Can't use three-finger tap gesture on Firefox (Mac) to bring up dictionary
This might be a good start. Never used it myself, though, so I can't really vouch for it.
> Can't use Google Keep anymore
You sure? Works perfectly fine for me; can view, create, and modify notes with no issue.
Don't use Hola.
Edit: Tunnelbear is good, Zenmate too but it doesn't have give a UK VPN to free users.
This whole thing is farcical. Are they going to block all of for 'unverified users' for example?
Due to HTTPS encrypting the request, you can't selectively block pages based on the URL requested or based on analysing the content returned, so you would have to block the entire site (most of the Reddit front page breaks, not to mention a ton of other stuff).
And if they're not planning on blocking at the ISP level, overseas sites will not care less about complying with an obscure UK law.
That's not even considering the couple of seconds it takes to install Zenmate in Chrome or something similar.
Zenmate does basically the same as hola just without the bad side effects and with only 3 countries available in the free version.
Thanks for the answer! But I'm not sure if I got the last part with your friend in another country...
You need a VPN to get to the sign up process. A free one like Hola or Zenmate or something should work fine. Pop in a random US address and your PayPal info and you're set. You won't need the VPN any more after this. The Network will work on Xbox, PS4 (if just set up an American account), PC or any Android device. I can't speak for any Apple device as I don't have any. If you have any issues or questions feel free to fire me off a PM.
Not sure if there's much update on it, but I'd stay away from hola. It's been doing a lot of shady stuff, exit nodes and that.
Better off going with a semi paid service at the least. Zenmate is free to use but also has a paid option.
I use zenmate, very happy with them. Only issue is they just launched from freeware to subscription basis. Free is fine if you just want US, but I like my UK netflix as well. It's like 70$ for the year otherwise.
Private internet access is supposedly another good one.
Zenmate has worked with both netflix and hulu for me np.
Don't know if it's been changed now but I wouldn't suggest using Hola. It shouldn't matter too much, but they caused an uproar a year or two ago when people found out that their connections are being used as nodes (other people's connections go through yours), which allows for other people to use your network to do some shady stuffs that you can be held accountable for.
Maybe try a different VPN like Zenmate or Hotspot Shield.
Turn off Zenmate after the connection has been established and the video is playing.
I found that once the stream is playing it is no longer necessary to route your traffic through a vpn.
I've been watching all games in HD and it definitely makes a difference
My understanding is that Zenmate is just a chrome/firefox addon. PIA is a separate program altogether.
What that means is that Zenmate will only route browser traffic through a VPN. PIA will route all your traffic through a VPN.
For example, Zenmate won't route uTorrent traffic through a VPN, but PIA will.

2) Set UK
3) Go to
4) Refresh page if it doesn't work
Yeah, shouldn't be surprising. Anyway it's also available on Netflix Canada. For those outside you can use a VPN, though many won't work properly atm. I used Zenmate and it worked very well - HD, subtitles and all
Good episode... End segment was a bit cheesy, but it got a few cheap laughs out of me. And it couldn't overshadow how good the Corvette/Cayman test was and how well produced the LaFerrari test was. I don't know if the video editors of Top Gear ever read these threads but if they do... Excellent work!
Also if any American's are trying to watch the episode, I'm using the Zenmate add-on for Chrome and it works great! Then you can just use the BBC iPlayer.
