Excellent proxy switcher to unblock regional video restrictions

Hola Unlimited Free VPN (before Hola Better Internet) is an extension for Google Chrome and Firefox browsers that allows you to access video content in other countries such as the USA and UK that are blocked outside of those regions. Hola Unlimited Free VPN can also be used by those who want to protect their privacy by surfing via proxy.

Watch Hulu, Netflix, BBC and more

The main appeal of Hola Unlimited Free VPN for those outside is the USA is that it allows you access to sites such as Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, CBS and FOX that are normally blocked outside the USA. For those outside the UK, Hola Unlimited Free VPN gives you access to blocked content on sites such as the BBC iPlayer, ITV and Channel 4.

Like most Chrome Extensions, Hola Unlimited Free VPN is extremely easy to install with no need to restart your PC or browser. Just install the extension and you're ready to go. You'll see the Hola Unlimited Free VPN logo in the top right corner of your browser when it's working. To change the country or service you want to unblock, simply click on the logo and switch to the site that you want to watch.

Generally reliable for video streaming

Generally, Hola Unlimited Free VPN doesn't slow down your browsing and streaming is fairly fast and smooth. However, we did experience some issues when using it with Hulu - video would obsessionally stop and start although not enough to become a real pain. Also, we found that although the proxy list is impressively long, the proxies for some countries simply did not work. Or at least, video would not stream at all for certain countries using the correct proxy.

Add scripts for missing country proxies

One unique feature to Hola Unlimited Free VPN that you don't find in other similar extensions is that if it can't unblock a particular a video site in a country or region, you can add user generated scripts to it that unblock it. Hola Unlimited Free VPN provides a search box which, when you type in the name of the service you want to unblock, will automatically search the net for possible scripts that may help. In tests, we found that the scripts - made by independent third parties - we're not always reliable or in some cases no longer worked but this flexibility makes Hola Unlimited Free VPN considerably more powerful than other proxy switchers.

Great for expats missing TV back home

Overall, Hola Unlimited Free VPN is the perfect extension for American expats all over the world missing their favorite blocked content from back home, or for those who love American and British TV and film. It's definitely up there as one of the best proxy switcher add-ons along with ZenMate.
