Are you a Netflix addict? I am. I am constantly in search of new TV shows to watch, and I blow through them at an alarming pace. When I'm done, I immediately look for something else to watch.
But did you know that you don't have access to everything that is available on Netflix? The content available in the United States is different than the Netflix library in England, and vice versa. So if you really want to optimize your Netflix watching experience, you need access to everything.
Netflix puts up dumb virtual walls, though, restricting what you can and cannot watch. What you need is a way around those walls. Luckily for you, there is a way, and it's actually quite easy.
All you need is Hola, an app/extension available for a variety of browsers and phones. Once you've installed Hola, a simple click of the mouse will allow you to change the country you're browsing from. Hola is essentially an easy-to-use VPN (virtual private network) service that masks where you're actually browsing from by changing your IP to one from another country.
So when you log into Netflix (or any other site), it appears as though you're in Liverpool instead of your home in Las Vegas. And suddenly, you have access to a whole bunch of great content that you couldn't access before.
Hola is free and available right now.
