When it comes to enjoying TV or Movies online there are some advanced entertainment portals like Hulu, Netflix & Epix that showcases latest shows and movies. Also individual channels these days also have online streaming available from biggies like Discovery, Cartoon Network, CW Tv and much more. But all these supreme quality portals are currently available only for major countries like US or UK. In fact some UK channels are blocked in US too, which is really sad for internet users, who are participating and enjoying the global entertainment.
Today, I am going to review one truly amazing DNS changing service that lets you enjoy all the perks for being an US or UK citizen from literally anywhere around the world - Unotelly!
And you can guess it clearly as I am writing from India and already enjoying the service for over a month now seamlessly for over 70 geo-restricted channels. Super cool, right? Lets find out more about the service in following review.
To explain Unotelly service in very plain words – Whenever you access online tv or movie channels like Hulu or Netflix it shows following notifications -
Sorry, currently our video library can only be watched from within the United States
From the IP address of your PC, Mac or Xbox, the service instantly knows your location and restricts you from a mind-blowing entertainment channels. What Unotelly does is, It simply lets you stream content through their servers on your devices and make it look like you are accessing from US, And voila! You can then instantly start watching all the amazing TV Shows & Movies for as long as you want!
You might have heard of Virtual Private Network (VPN) before, but its a very simplified form of VPN restricted for only the channels showcased here – Unotelly Channels. I mentioned this because, it is much better for any kind of user to access this service without getting in to the hassles of creating and accessing VPN and do shifting all the time.
Second great thing I loved about Unotelly or UnoDNS service is that, the versatility that is available for various platforms and devices. The service can be accessed from PC, Mac, linux,PS3, XBOX360, Wii, iPhone, iPad, iPd Touch, Android smartphones, playbook, WD TV Live, Roku, Boxee box, OpenElec, XBMC, Apple TV, Google TV, LG smart TV, Sony TV and players, Panasonic VIERA, Samsung TV and players and all rooters including DD- WRT. Unotelly provided so far the best compatibility with devices to change the DNS and access geo-restricted content flawlessly.
We are living in the ages of sharing, connectivity and inter-exchange content between the platforms, and Unotelly is just perfect to enjoy your content in every way possible. The service is currently available as Premium & Gold Subscription that costs you $4.95 & $7.95 respectively. Both avails all the free & premium channels online but only few are limited for gold users. I would suggest you to go with the gold plan itself as it offers almost every best content around the web.
Before wrapping up this review, I think it is very important to tell you that Unotelly has set up a highly detailed setup pages ranging from Xbox to wide variety of routers to make the process easy and one time. Though the best way I think is to set up your router itself and it will take care of all your devices. Currently I am using Unotelly on my home Xbox, laptops, Windows Phone (via router setup) & iPhone of course. (They also provide one client called – UnoHelper, that takes care of everything and all you have to do is install and click ‘Start”, And you are good to go.)
Another important facility Unotelly provides is, they let user access service from various location, just that you can run from one location at a time. So when I move to office I access it from there, and at home I use it the most.
For its cost, I would recommend this product as a must have for all the internet users around the world who are willing to access the geo-restricted content on their devices flawlessly!
Note: I have also tested there UnoVPN service (BETA), which works for all the websites and provides more flexibility for technically advanced users. I will update on its pricing and availability as it is made available publicly!
