Wouldn't you just want to use a proxy, rather than install an application?

Yes, quite true :) However my proxy suggestion would work for service restricted to other countries.

Only 4 reviews and 1 of the poor reviews complained about not working with Hulu: Expat Shield is UK based, Hulu/Nf is for the US. Of course it wont work. Duh!

I think it's pointless to install an application which is of limited use, when you could simply use a proxy to access content/services which are restricted to certain geographical regions. Search google for "iplayer proxy", substituting iplayer for the site or service you wish to access.

Sensible browsers have proxy plugins to simplify turning them on and off.

However one of the four reviews said:


"Not worth it."

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Interrupts website content with too many advertisments and popups


Sensible people don't like popups and ads when they're using their computer; for various obvious reasons.

Is there a way to make it appear you are in USA? That would be more use to some of us.

Use hotspot shield - free VPN so that it appears that you are in USA

As per my previous advice, use a proxy server rather than install a different app for each country you wish to pretend to be in ;)
