Review Summary:

TNT Stream Unblocker offers users an easy way to get around geo-restrictions that are placed by services like Netflix, Hulu, iBBC, and others that block out out country/region streams. This is typically due to their licensing agreements with movie studios and is typically a drag for the consumer that just wants to access what they are already paying for. Many international travelers have run across this:

This comes up because of your IP address. Netflix knows that you are outside of the USA. So in situations like this you need to spoof your IP address so that sites like Netflix and others think you are still in the US. Enter services like TNT Stream Unblocker.  These are SmartDNS services which change your IP address to a location of your choosing. See TNT’s main interface for Windows here:

tnt-screen

So you simply choose the location you want to be seen from and you are automatically connected to an IP address in that area. TNT will pick the fastest IP at that time to offer you the best streaming quality.  At this time TNT Stream Unblocker only has a software client for Windows users and there is a Chrome Add-On that can be installed for quick access using the Chrome browser on Windows/Mac/Linux. Mobile Chrome doesn’t allow add-ons.  Here’s a quick look at the add-on:

One of the most common issues today is that Netflix, Hulu, and a few others can determine if you are using a proxy or IP spoofing service. So the way around that is to disable WebRTC which is standard in Firefox and Chrome. Or use a browser like ahemmm Internet Explorer which doesn’t have this. There are plugins for Firefox and Chrome that can disable this for you. However the TNT service gives you this option as well. Just check it and when activated this should get around the additional Netflix and Hulu checks they do to determine your actual IP address.
