UnoDNS Review: Stream and Watch Netflix, Hulu, Spotify Outside USA
A decade ago TV and radio were the main sources of entertainment. But time is changing; we are no longer dependent on TV and Radio. We are moving towards internet based entertainment services like Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Pandora etc. We can watch online movies, TV shows on Netflix, Hulu and listen to music on Spotify, Pandora for free or by paying a fixed monthly subscription charge. Most of these services are only available in USA. That means we can’t access these services from outside the USA. However, there are some workarounds to bypass this country restriction. You might be knowing about VPN connection or proxy server which lets us unblock these websites. But in both cases you will not get superior streaming experience because most of the time VPN and proxy servers slow down the internet speed. I came to know about a new service called UnoDNS which solves this problem. UnoDNS replaces our Internet Service Provider’s (ISP) Domain Name System (DNS) and bypasses all the traffic through their DNS server. It offers some advantages over traditional VPN connections and proxy servers. Let us know what is this UnoVPN is all about and how we can watch Hulu, Netflix and listen to Pandora, Spotify outside USA.
What is UnoDNS?
UnoDNS is a premium DNS service offered by UnoTelly. It allows you to access more than 70 geo-restricted channels and services like Hulu, Netflix, Spotify, Pandora, Google Music, BBC iPlayer and much more outside USA. UnoDNS offers super-fast internet speed through its 1000 Mbit high-speed connection. So you will not face any slow down like other proxy servers or VPN connections. Unlike any other VPN services, there is no monthly bandwidth limitation. You can stream movies and TV shows without worrying about bandwidth caps. UnoDNS can be configured to work with Computer, Mac, mobile phones, tablets, gaming consoles and other devices which supports manual DNS configuration. UnoDNS makes internet surfing more secure thanks to the 256 bit encryption technology.
How to setup UnoDNS on Windows computer?
UnoDNS works on both Windows computer and Mac along with other devices. I’ve used this service on my Windows 8 computer and it worked perfectly. When you first sign up for UnoDNS you will get an username and password which will be used to log in to your online account. After logging into your account you will get all essential information to successfully set up UnoDNS on your computer.
First you need to visit this link http://www.unotelly.com/unodns/global and note down your nearby DNS server location and its IP address. Now open ‘Control Panel’ and navigate to the ‘Network and Security Center’. Here find the active internet connection adapter and open its ‘Properties’ settings. In my case I’m using LAN connection so I’ll click on it to open its properties.
After that choose Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) and enter its ‘Properties’ settings.
On the next screen enter the DNS server address of your nearest UnoDNS server and click ‘OK’.
Now you have to restart the computer to make the changes successful. After restarting the computer visit this link http://quickstart.unotelly.com/ and check whether UnoDNS service is running fine or not. If everything is fine you will see this message “UnoDNS Setup and Account are active”.
Now you are ready to watch Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify and other services from any country.
