Unblock Hulu, YouTube And Grooveshark With ProxMate [Chrome Extension]

Based on your country and location, websites place restrictions on what you can access. For example, you cannot watch video on Hulu outside the US or can’t watch some YouTube videos on particular countries or territories. However, there are several solutions available for unblocking such restrictions. Here is a Chrome extension called ProxMate to unblock YouTube, Hulu, Grooveshark, and other websites.

ProxMate is designed to be a simple to use, open source plug-in for Chrome that helps you to unblock websites you like or bypass the country checks, for example, YouTube, Grooveshark, Hulu or anything else.

Here is how to use ProxMate. Install it from Chrome web store here (Firefox users can install the add-on from Mozilla add-on site).

To watch a video on Hulu, for example, browse a video of your choice on Hulu. Then click the "details" button under a video.

A button saying, "Unblock this Videos" should pop up. Click it and the video gets unblocked.

From ProxMate option, you can enable or disable which site you want to unblock, use you own proxy server and also disable option for sending anonymous data, if you like so.

In my personal experience, I can say ProxMate is one of the best options for bypassing country checks of certain websites.
