Hola! The browser extension that makes the TV-watching world that bit smaller
If you’re an ex-pat who misses your diet of Eastenders, Cash In The Attic and Dancing On Ice, you should probably take a long, hard look at how your life has panned out.
Then, you should take a long, hard look at Hola Unblocker, a browser extension that will allow you to watch the BBC’s iPlayer, and the ITV Player from wherever you are in the world, bypassing the traditional geographical blocks.
Likewise, UK-dwelling TV fans can use it to watch US-based services such as Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and whatever else you might be into from ‘across the pond’.
Previously, Tunnelbear seemed to be the easiest way to do this sort of thing, but Hola looks set to take the bear’s crown.
Life just got a hell of a lot better for Allo Allo fans who live in France…
EDIT: Doesn't seem to work on Hulu. Bah.
