Hola Unblocker - Fast surfing, smooth video streaming, quick download - All for free and free for all!
Hola Unblocker is a web browser extension that removes region locks and allows you to watch the most popular but region-locked TV and movie streaming websites such as Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Pandora and many more regardless and no matter where in the world you are at the moment.
Hola's solution is also available as a VPN-like application (Internet Accelerator) which is more sophisticated than their web browser add-on and requires more thorough setup and settings to be done. Anyway, both solutions are absolutely free and work perfectly. In addition, the Hola Unlocker as the extension for Chrome and Firefox web browsers (Safari and IE are not supported as of yet) doesn't require any set-up or configuration. It works right out of the box!
Get free access to streaming websites that aren't available from your current geo-location or are in any other way blocked from your network
Well, we've already seen a lot of other methods for region unlocking, incl. web proxy based tools and extensions, changing DNS servers, using a VPN service or other paid solutions like Media Hint or Tunnelbear.
As of Hola unlocker browser addon, it makes the whole process of downloading, launching and configuring very fast and easy. You just add the extension to your browser and it does all the rest for you - no need to reboot your computer or change any settings in your browser. Configuring and getting to run Hola Internet Accelerator (their VPN-like software app) is a little more complicated but still doable even for non-experts and begiiners.
Finding and installing available Hola scripts with Firefox or Chrome browsers
There is a lot of useful scripts made by the company itself as well as developed by third parties. Expert users can write unlocking scripts themselves with the default method offered by the app developer. If you aren't a power user, the best way to find a script to unlock this or that website or web service is the official Hola script library.
The script library is open to all users and offers the versions for Windows, Mac/iOS and Android OS.Download and install the most recent version of the script to unlock BBC iPlayer's TV shows from the official Hola Scripts library. After the install is complete ensure that the extension is enabled with your browser.
Making things work on phones, tablets and game consoles using Hola's browser extension
Currently, Hola extension for Firefox and Chrome lets you access Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, iTV Player, BBC iPlayer, CBS and Fox TV streaming. Thanks to this browser addon you're able not only to watch streamed content to your computer or mobile device, but also stream movies or music straight to your Playstation 3 gaming console with Chrome installed.
Configuring the extension to work properly on a PS3 could be tricky, though, because the consoles uses a bit different app than the computes, phones and tablets. Some more bad news: sorry to say it, but currently the app won't work with Xbox 360 and Wii U.
