Chrome: If you’re outside the United States you know all too well how irritating it can be when you’re denied access to streaming services because of your location. Stop missing out and start streaming with Chrome extension Media Hint.
So what’s the secret sauce? The extensions routes your traffic–just the traffic for the streaming service–through U.S.-based proxies so you can enjoy content unavailable in your home country. The extension requires no configuration or registration, simply install it and visit Hulu, Netflix, or Pandora to start streaming.
Media Hint is a free extension, Chrome only.
