Unblock region locked websites with Hola!

One of the things we all hate about YouTube is the annoying region limitations; if you’re not located on one of the approved countries, you won’t be able to watch an specific video. But even though is annoying, that doesn’t mean that we can’t see those videos. There are thousands of services, programs, proxys, and ways to do this, but I always like to keep things simple… an extension should suffice.

In this case is Hola!, which is a sites’ unblocker that allows you to access not only YouTube videos, but also any site that is blocked on your region, like Hulu, Netflix, Twitter, or even Google. Hola! is not only an extension, it also comes as an Android/iOS app and Windows program. Of course, it works by creating a VPN between your PC and a remote one, just as most services do these days.

In case you access, lets say, YouTube, and the video is still blocked, make sure to go to the extension’s settings and activate YouTube on it’s list of sites.

Try it, trust me.

  1. Thanks for the article Tato. I personally use the UnoTelly DNS option. It’s ideal for content streaming because unlike VPNs, there is no internet speed loss when using it.
