Hello everybody.

Until recently I was using Hola! for my streaming needs (NRL). However obviously since all the drama I uninstalled it. I have been using Zenmate + another one which escapes me (Something Bear).

Anyway, I have been having troubles streaming since getting rid of Hola!. The games stutter, wont load and also go from HD-270p within bout 1 minute of starting the stream and you cant get back to HD. Using Hola! I never had these problems.

I have done a tiny bit of research and it looks like UnoTelly or PIA (Private Internet Access) will suit me well. I am more than likely to go for Unotelly as it is more well known here on GZ and I trust you blokes :)

So what do I need? What do you recommend? Simply for the NRL, don't want to use it for movies/tv shows.

Cheers folks.

Actually, think I am now sold on Unotelly.

However just wondering which plan I would need?

UnoDNS or UnoDNS + UnoVPN

I think just UnoDNS?

Thanks.

Finch: However just wondering which plan I would need?

UnoDNS does all I need (mostly BBC iPlayer).  If it works for you, then no need to pay extra for the VPN.

I also find it's preferable just using a DNS redirector because local websites are unaffected.  If you use a VPN, you will find accessing local websites becomes very slow at peak times due to congested international links.  Hence you will end up switching it off when you're not streaming or downloading.  It's one more hassle you can probably do without.

Thanks Grant for the reply, yeah UnoDNS looks like the one.

Did anybody else have trouble signing up to Unotelly? I input my Email address and it says I am doing it in the wrong format.

I have tried both IE + Chrome with different addresses.

Any ideas folks?

Use their "Let's talk" button or their support ticket system.  You'll find them very responsive.

Thanks. I have sent a few Emails over the past hour or so, like you say, very responsive.

Level 1 support couldn't help me, I have been moved up to level 2.
