Thanks, yes I've tried unblock.us and also UnoTelly and they both work fine but I'm paying for a number of premium services already and hulu etc. aren't worth paying more. :) Region free would just be handy for a lot of sites like CBC news and a few BBC sites etc. that I run into problems watching videos on and hulu would be a bonus. I'm not gutted about it or anything.

sbiddle: The problem with any ISP offering such a service is what to do when the service suddenly stops working.

There wouldn't be an ISP on the market who hasn't looked at the business case of doing this as their are many technical solutions, some of which are incredibly simple.

What happens however when your tricks stop working (as some are) and suddenly you've got customers making demands under the CGA that the product is no longer fit for purpose?

If you want to access geoblocked content use one of the many ways of doing this. Content providers are finding ways to block the many services starting up, so you've easily got the ability to move as these blocks start to take effect from some content providers.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Then use the hola.org chrome browser plugin, works perfectly and it's free.
