Access Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, Rdio Outside The US With Mediahint

As we all know, we can’t view content available on websites like Pandora, Hulu, Netflix, Rdio, etc. from all around the world, as these sites employ region locks to limit their services to specific countries. But, it is easy to break these roadblocks and see contents from anywhere by masking our identity or IP address.

 Mediahint is an add-on for Firefox and Chrome that lets you access US based sites such as Hulu, CBS, Netfix, Pandora, and Rdio outside the US by making it appear as if you’re accessing the service from within the US.

The add-on is free and no configuration is needed. Just install the add-on, restart your browser and start to watch superb programs like The Following, Modern Family and The Americans on Hulu from your country, of course you need a decent internet connection.

Go to Mediahint and install the add-on for Firefox or Chrome
