    Hotspot Shield allows you to spoof a US IP address and watch streaming videos on sites like Hulu.com and NBC.

    Free download. Thought it was really cool.

    I used this but after a while it would not work anymore. Odd.

    There's a limit on how much bandwidth passes thru Hotsport Shield and it resets after a month - not sure but I think it's 2GB or 3GB.

    You might have already reached the limit of Hotspot Shield's cap - I think they put that in place to dissuade people from doing precisely what we're doing =)

    I use it more for Pandora than for video though.

    Oh, thanks for the info sir. Oh well. Btw, proxies also don't work for Hulu and NBC. They're smart that way. ;)

    Found a good alternative to Hotspot Shield - AlwaysVPN

    http://alwaysvpn.com/

    My connection was kind of slow but I was able to check out some Hulu clips. Will try again tonight when dsl speed is a bit faster.

    HSS is nice, but the AnchorFree frame on every Safari page is horrible.

    Anything to disable it?

    First time to use Hostpot Shield so I can browse hulu. Been looking for 24-Redemption. Pero quite expensive sa iTunes. Easy to install, no need for manual configuration. Working well...

    Hope they will lower the price of 24-Redemption.

    Thanks :)
