The UK is a really crummy place to live if, like me, you’re really into US TV shows such as Dexter, Girls, Psych – to name a few. We do get the occasional series or two, but most of the time they’re only available on cable channels and our only other option is to visit certain pirate themed websites that offer episodes of TV shows for download.
Wouldn’t it be easier if we could just visit the channels website and check out their on demand service to get the latest episodes? Well with UnoTelly you can!
UnoTelly is a new DNS service that ‘tricks’ the websites into thinking that you’re from the country that it has whitelisted to view the content. UnoTelly works on pretty much every platform that hosts some sort of On Demand streaming option such as;
PC, Mac, linux,PS3, XBOX360, Wii, iPhone, iPad, iTouch, Android, Playbook, WD TV Live, Roku, Boxee box, OpenElec, XBMC, Apple TV, Google TV, LG smart TV, Sony TV and players, Panasonic VIERA, Samsung TV and players and all rooters including DD- WRT.
It doesn’t just work for TV and Film streaming services either, you can gain access to international app/game stores via your iPhone, Android device, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 and download all different kinds of apps from international app stores.
The list of channels available is pretty vast too! The list below is every channel they have that you’ll have access to if you get the gold subscription.
By now you’re probably wondering about the pricing on such a service. It’s not actually that bad considering most of the content that it unlocks is free, but I do understand the concerns of those who have an Xbox Live subscription along with a Netflix Subscription and probably don’t want another subscription to pay every month, but to have access to a vast amount of great US channels it may be worth considering.
I’ve mainly been focusing on TV channels but that’s not all UnoTelly offer to ‘unlock’. About a year or two ago turntable.fm were letting people try out their music DJ service via invites though Facebook, within about a month or two of play they shut their doors to UK users due to licencing. With UnoTelly that isn’t an issue, while writing this I’m in a room on turntable.fm listening to the music being played by the 5 ‘DJ’s’.
Setting up such a service is simple enough for an amateur computer user, but for those of you who only just know the difference between a mouse and a keyboard you may find the set up instructions a little daunting.
To set up the service you’re required to change the DNS of each device you wish to use the service on, it’s a pretty simple process but for those of you who struggle with things likt this the website offers an easy to follow flash card and video tutorials for each of the compatible devices so you’ve got nothing to worry about. If you do get stuck their customer service staff are also there to help if you run into any troubles.
I do realise some of you have security concerns with messing with your computers settings especially IP addresses and all that malarky, but UnoTelly’s service is 100% secure with SSL Encryption;
UnoDNS™ secures all transactions by Comodo SSL through “https” connection. Trusted by over 99.3% of current Internet users, Comodo SSL Certificates eliminate any risk because they carry a $50,000 warranty.
I plan on using this service for as long as it’s available, I’m mostly thrilled to bits about the access to turntable.fm and that pretty much does it for me!
