UPDATE: While all of the information below is true about blocking your IP address, which can be useful, it appears that Hulu.com is on to this proxy business. They are denying access to anyone who logs on using a blocked IP address. Damn.
I guess I'm a thief. Well, some institutions would think so anyway. Why? Because I download stuff from the Internet. Stuff like music, movies and episodes of TV shows. I guess I really don't care about big business making even more money, but that's not what this post is about.
My friends from NOB (north of the border) have been telling me about this website called Hulu.com. It is a site for USA TV shows. You can stream episodes of some of your favorite shows. Or just excerps from them. So if you miss an episode, no problem. Just go to Hulu and catch up. Or maybe you don't have cable. No problem. Go to Hulu and watch the latest episode of your favorite program.
The problem for those of us living outside of the USA is that it is not available to us. The site checks your Internet address and if you are not coming from the USA, you are denied access. Talk about discrimination.
Well all of that changed for me recently and it can change for you too. I found a great, safe, website that allows you to access Hulu and any other website that records your IP address and blocks you because of it. It will also hide your address from prying eyes that may want to do you mischief.
So if you want to be able to stream USA TV shows and watch whatever you want, go to http://www.anchorfree.com/ and download the free software. I did it and am sure glad I did!
