Hulu.com & Bolehvpn.net
I've started using Hulu.com recently to watch current TV series episodes from the US, and its a real treat. It has a lot of the latest TV shows there, and the quality of the broadcast is pretty damn good. Full screen resolutions are sharp, streaming speeds (in the mornings or very late at night) are good. I've been watching the latest seasons of Chuck, V, and 24 with great success. There is only one problem: the streaming content is only available for residents of the USA. Hulu.com controls access via a system of mapping IP addresses. Therefore, if you're connecting to their servers from a non-USA IP address, you won't be allowed to access the video streams. How do i get around this? By using a proxy routing system to make the Hulu servers think that i'm accessing them from the US. The most convenient option i've found so far is to use a paid service such as Bolehvpn.net. Good service, good speed, and affordable pricing. For RM30 a month, i can watch American TV shows just like an American can. Isn't the Internet wonderful?
