Have you ever seen this annoying message “Sorry, this content is not available in your country” when you try to stream videos from huge online video libraries like Netflix and Hulu? We’re sure you have unless you live in the US.
Nowadays, we use the internet as a major way of entertainment. We use to play games, listen to music, chat and many more things. However, when it comes to video streaming things are getting a little complicated. There are online content libraries like Hulu, Netflix, Pandora and BBC that provide the hottest series, movies, music and sports games. Unfortunately, these channels can be reached only from the US and in some cases, the UK and they are restricted to the rest of world for no particular reason. Well, that is unfair because due to those restrictions we can’t watch awesome series like Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother. We also lose all the new movies and sport games. We bet you all wanted to watch the English and Spanish soccer league and the finals of NBA.
To fill the restriction gap people have tried various methods with the majority of them to be either poor service or illegal. The most popular is the VPN and the P2P file sharing.
- VPN is the most popular way to access geo-restricted networks. It works but it’s not a good solution for streaming videos because it has bandwidth cap and that causes lags when streaming. Furthermore VPN is working only on PC leaving out a huge number of devices we could use to stream videos like iPad, iPhone and Game Consoles. Lastly, VPN are expensive. Monthly fees can be bigger than $10 But still if you want to give a try then we suggest trying out Hide My IP, VyprVPN or ExpressVPN.
- P2P which are also known as Bit Torrent are illegal and the laws about piracy are getting stricter day by day.

UnoTelly is a legal and pain-free solution to stay connected with geo-restricted content.
Recently, we have received an e-mail from UnoTelly, a company which refers to its product as an intelligent unblocker who can overcome geo-restriction and connect people with almost every restricted channel they like, with major speed and quality in every device they have. People of UnoTelly asked us to try their service and write a review to help our readers to bypass geo-restrictions. We got very curious to see if what UnoTelly promises is true when we got this e-mail. We tested UnoTelly to a major number of devices and channels. From the results we got, we found UnoTelly a great service which can be used easily by anyone an on almost any device!
To begin with, UnoTelly is a DNS based system. Unlike VPN services, Unotelly DNS is giving the ability to stream through your own Internet connection so streaming comes with major speed and no bandwidth cap in contrast of VPN which must be connected to a US VPN server and stream the content through it which causes speed/quality loss.
Furthermore, UnoTelly can be used to almost every device that has an Internet connection. From PC to MAC, iPad and iPhone, Tablets, Smart TVs, game consoles like PS3 and XBOX360, Apple TV, Boxee Box and all rooters including DD-WRT.
UnoTelly has a huge list with around 70 supported channels. The most popular of them are Netflix, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Pandora internet Radio, CBS, NBA TV, Discovery Channel, Nickelodeon, Amazon and ESPN. You can find the list of supported channels Here.
Setting up UnoTelly is a fast and pain free process. People of UnoTelly have developed an easy to use setup program called UnoHelper which along with the step by step tutorials provided by UnoTelly’s website make installation a 5 minutes process even for a beginner for those types of technology.
There are 2 paid subscriptions to choose. The Premium ($4.95) and the Gold ($7.95). The Premium Program provides most of the popular channels such as Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, Amazon, CBS, FOX, Pandora Radio, ABC, BBC iPlayer and Discovery Channel. The Gold Program provides around 20 more channels than the premium one. Some of them are the National Geographic channel, Nickelodeon and CWTV. These two Programs can satisfy almost every user’s interests. The price is reasonable because what users buy is a fast and easy way to access their favorite shows almost at half price of other less efficient solutions. Lastly, UnoTelly offers a 8-Day free trial of Gold Program for anyone who wants to try it. You can take the 8-Day free trial Here.
Closing this UnoTelly review, we must admit that when we received the e-mail with the review request from UnoTelly we were not sure if they can offer what they promise. We tested it on PC, iPad and iPhone and we tried more than 20 channels. From the results we got we found UnoTelly a very fast and reliable service which provides to its customers excellent streaming quality in every device they have. So, do we recommend it? Absolutely!
What people are saying
The coupon code seems not to be working. I understand that they might have expired. But can you please get a code for me. I love this service and my trial has ended recently so I have to sign up now :)
We don’t have new promo codes, and thanks for notifying we’ll remove those promo code.
Rajesh – I am sure you are not that ‘simple’. Nikita didn’t want you to remove the expired coupon codes but give new ones!!!
Man I dont understand why people think they are the smartest thing on earth.. upsets me!
Yeah I know Nikita didn’t want that, but I’ve removed the expired codes because they are having no value, and we don’t have new promo codes right now :(
Great article Rajesh. The DNS option is better than using a VPN regarding content streaming because you can achieve direct connection with the media station ex. Netflix and avoid the “middle-man”. Personally, I am using UnoTelly which is similar to Unlocator. Perhaps you should check UnoTelly as well if you haven’t done so.
That’s great..but is it legal to use UnoTelly? please let me know..
i might purchase this service
Yeah, it’s legal.
How do you know that?
That’s a pretty handy service. With a cable bill exceeding 120 American Dollars each month I need to find a different way to receive entertainment. If this service would work with a DVR set up that would be ideal.
Well, I don’t know why will it be important for anyone outside the states to worry about the service being Legal or not, I was in Turkey couple years ago and people get all the paid TV shows from torrent networks.
I Think its totally a coupon based system, and what to do if the coupon had expired? Its an amazing service, and you should get some other coupon codes in this regard.
I personally use Hulu to stream and watch tv shows… the quality is decent, but fair for my standards.
Hulu rocks when I get get it to work outside of the US, I find the VPN option very tempermental! I may just have to give UnoTelly ago and see what they can do.
I have been using a similar service from https://unlocator.com which is very smooth. I’m able to switch between Netlix regions on my Apple TV as I please.
Sound pretty good but how is the overall picture and sound quality? Anyone out there actually use it regularly that can comment?
Thanks Rajesh. But is there any free proxy software to surf anywhere on internet anonymously. Pl reply
Search for free VPN providers.
I’ve used http://www.zoogtv.com for over 6 months now to watch Hulu, CBS, ABC, NBC, The CW and other US TV online outside US and I can say that they have been great.
Unlike other VPN providers, ZoogTV VPN is very stable and almost never hangs. It also offers 3 days free trial and also completely ad free. The picture quality is HD in most cases on both my laptop and my Android device.
I have 3 VPN accounts with them running on my laptop Android and iPad and wife now wants on her iPad mini also. Sometimes they a little slow to reply to our queries other than that I’m very happy with it.
Please note I am based in UK and have fast broadband.
I thought it was too good to be true: watching Netflix in Bali? Streaming VPN ( http://www.streamingvpn.com ) is the stuff of dreams and lets me watch latest movies while I laze under the sun on the balmy beaches of Bali. Well, yes, one does tend to ignore the scenery around but then you can’t have everything.
Very easy way to access geo restricted sites, I usually used mediahint extension but it only worked for hulu, now I’m using hola it is free and it is great at least for now. But i always want to have plus one option in my hand because free staff are not always 100% reliable. Thanks.
Great post, thanks for the share, I myself have tried HULU, have not found some tutorial to watch outside the country.
I work with Hulu personally, thanks for this great read and advice.
I’ve used http://www.zoogtv.com for over 1 months now to watch Hulu, CBS, ABC, NBC, The CW and other US TV online outside US.
Hey guys I reccomend HotSpotshield its really easy to use and super legit. Ive been using for a while i even purchased the year plan for $20 and I can bypass iTV and pretty much anything, even BBC player TV license fee.
Yeah I am agree with this statement, HotSpotshield is really working fine but i don’t think so that it is secure specially for torrent and just because of this in security i usually prefer purevpn instead of HotSpot specially for Netflix USA content.
Does this service still work?? and will it work with US Netflix?
Yes, try it out.
