watching geo-blocked content

Hi,

Some friends and I have released a chrome plugin that automatically discovers, tests and sets up free proxies in your browser. If you want to access geo-blocked services (BBC iPlayer, Hulu, etc.) and do not want to pay for a VPN or Smart DNS service, you should check this out:

This is a research project. We do not make money out of it and the service is provided "as is". I will appreciate all of your feedbacks!

Re: watching geo-blocked content

I was prepared to be underwhelmed....but hey presto!!!

Very impressed

I have tried it to access 3 countries so far (from Switzerland and Belgium) and its working nicely.

Thanks for suggesting it, I will now go out and buy a Chromecast device and I am all sorted for watching georestricted content on my TV...hassle free

Re: watching geo-blocked content

Hey wheatism, thanks for your feedback!

Please keep in mind that streaming quality depends on how well the proxy you are using performs. And we DO NOT control those proxies. We only scout them, test them, and push to you the ones with good performance. Some days are better than others, but so far we have been happily watching our favourite TV shows from back home :-)

cheers,
cla

Re: watching geo-blocked content

How much effort is it to adapt a chrome plugin to work for Firefox?

Re: watching geo-blocked content

It takes a bit and we do not have much time :-(
If you know somebody who would like to do it for free, we will be happy to help. Otherwise, a Firefox plugin is on our roadmap but we do not know when we will have the time to do it. I hope in the meantime you can switch to Chrome :-)
