What is Hola browser extension and how does Hola Unblocker work

Hola Unblocker is chiefly known as a web browser extension (also sometimes called "add-on" or "plugin") that removes network region locks. Being installed woth a web browser this unlocking feature allows then a user to watch top TV and movie streaming websites. Almost no limits: Netflix US along with regional ones, Hulu, CBS, Fox TV, iTV, BBC iPlayer, Pandora and many more, completely regardless of where you are at the moment.
How it works? Generally speaking, Hola as well as its alternatives is very similar to so-called virtual private networks and actually works like a VPN service. The difference is that this browser plugin uses P2P (peer-to-peer) technology to share online content between users. In other words, having installed the extension with a web browser a user makes the online content that he himself is allowed to access available for other users.

Fast surfing, no geo-based limitations and restrictions, smooth audio and video stream - all for free and free for all!

Anyway, both solutions are absolutely free and work perfectly for users from different rgions. In addition, Hola Unlocker browser extension for Chrome and Firefox. Safari browser is not supported as of yet, however you can run Hola service on Mac OS X simply by using using their free browser extension for Chrome or Firefox. The addon does not require any set-up configuration to be done at all. It works right out of the box.
