Bypass Country Restrictions for Netflix, Hulu

So, if you're not living in the grand ol' United States and you want to watch Netflix, Hulu you're kinda screwed. In Canada you can get Netflix but the volume of content is only a small fraction of what is available to U.S. subscribers. I don't subscribe to Netflix myself  now have Netflix, which I don't use that much but other members of my family watch it extensively. One used to have to purchase a VPN into a U.S. IP address to get the full content, but nowadays there's MediaHint Zenmate. It's a plugin for Chrome and Firefox, and once installed you don't have to do anything else but waste hours watching videos. I used to recommend Media Hint but they're charging for it now.

For non-U.S. residents there are websites like watchfreemovies.ch which have a vast amount of content if you want streaming videos. There are also sites like EZTV and The Pirate Bay that are fantastic if you know how to download torrents.

Bonus! Free to everyone, including non-muricans, are lolcat videos. As an interesting aside, lolcats have been around since at least the mid-nineteenth century. Check these out...

Thanks for the article. VPN is good if you want to hide your real location. However, about content streaming, I prefer the DNS option. Currently, I am using UnoTelly and have no speed loss which allows me HD streaming with my 10mbps connection.
