Tried to watch a program on the Internet in another country only to be blocked because you’re in the wrong region? The Internet should be a free and open place right? Well if it isn’t open enough for you I have got a solution.
Try watching your favorite programming and browsing the Internet with Hola. It’s a browser extension originally made for Google Chrome — with versions for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Android, Windows and Mac. Miss a show you used to watch in Australia? Want to watch something on Netflix Canada without downloading a stupid virus? Hola is the app for you.
In the 2 weeks I have been using it I am impressed. I have had few issues if any. I usually go to moreflix.com and scan for for programming there.
On moreflix.com you can even choose your player; iTunes, Vudu, Netflix, Crackle, etc. But once you launch the app in your browser you can go anywhere. Personally, I am partial to hitting up BBC or ITV in England to watch my favorite British shows. I have zero patience when it comes to waiting on it to arrive in America.
Aside from the obvious entertainment benefits and the fact there are no ads Hola is definitely a gem. Hola brags that is super secure, let’s you browse the web faster through it’s “social routing” , and changes your ip address everytime you use it to protect you against prying government eyes and retail sites.
What more could you ask for? There is a premium version that gives you extra benefits like full vpn access, multiple browsers, Hola for your iphone, iPad and Mac computers, and the opportunity to support the site for just $5.00 a month. Although, I am sure they take donations too.
You can find Hola in the Google Chrome store or check it out here . If you have never downloaded an extension before, you’ve been missing out. Google Chrome has so many cool browser extension. Peruse the store you’ll find a ton and you’ll be happier than a kid with a shiny new toy on Christmas day.
