Watch the very best TV shows using Unotelly – Competition

3 min read
91

Nearly three years ago we reviewed a service called Unotelly which allowed people outside the United States watch things like Netflix, Hulu and other streaming options and ever since that day my TV habits have changed completely.

It didn’t take long before I cancelled my Premium DSTV subscription and besides the lack of sporting options I have never looked back.

The way it works is really simple, you sign up for a Unotelly account, either a standard account that I use for $3.94 a month or a Gold account with an added VPN option for $4.93 a month. No contracts or long-term commitments –  you can just cancel anytime if it doesn’t work for you.

Once you’ve signed up then you update your DNS on your router or device to their DNS settings and you are done. Compatible devices include Smart TV’s and Blu-Ray players, consoles, tablets and dedicated streaming units.

If you are going to then use one of the many streaming services, then Unotelly will fake your location to allow you to watch the streams and if you are going to normal sites like Lazygamer.net then it doesn’t change anything.

Your speed doesn’t change at all and you can watch steaming quite easily with anything that has a 2mb download or higher.

My current internet is a 4mb Sprintnet connection and right this very second I’m watching Netflix stream on my Xbox One while my wife is hiding in the bedroom streaming Hulu and both of us are receiving HD content.

So what are you missing out on if you aren’t doing this? Here’s my current favourites by stream and the costs of the stream. All are being paid using my South African credit card

Netflix – $7.99

Netflix is home to a massive back catalogue of movies and series but it is also now creating some incredible original content and I spend around 40% of my time watching their shows.

sense8between

oitnb

daredevil

 

 

 

 

 

 

And many many more including some truly terrible movies like Zombeavers, Tracers and Mortal Kombat. And some truly fantastic shows like House of Cards, Scandal, Greys Anatomy and Agents of Shield to name but only a few

Hulu – $7.99

Hulu is more well known for brand new content that is often streaming before it even lands on DSTV in South Africa. My current Hulu addiction is being catered for by:

messengerstwisted

izombie

masterchef

Along with a ton of other shows like Arrow, Wayward Pines, Tyrant and The Flash.

HBO Now – $15

HBO Now is a new entrant into the race and I’m paying them right now so that I could get my Game of Thrones fix which airs 1 day after it is shown in the US. They also have a great back catalogue that I am going through including Rome, Band of Brothers and True Blood

On top of that, you’ll also unlock a world of music streaming services like Spotify and Pandora. Geofencing sucks.

Competition

So while I enjoy rambling on about the shows there was a reason for this post. The guys over at Unotelly know how much we love them and so they got in contact with us to run a competition to give away some One Year Gold subscriptions to their service.

We have 5 of these to give away and the way we are going to do it is pretty straight forward.

We are going to give away 3 in the comments section below and to enter all you need to do is make sure you have a registered disqus username with a valid email and then leave a comment saying what you would like to watch if you won. We’ll pick winners next week after the E3 bedlam has calmed down to a mere panic.

Then we will give one away on our Facebook page so make sure you like that page so you will see when we do it.And lastly the official twitter account will be giving one away so follow on us on twitter as well (@Lazygamernet).

That’s it. And remember if you win you can watch anything on Hulu and Netflix for free as they both give away a free month when signing up so.

    Is this better than Torrents? (Not that I download torrents. But in all honesty, I would love to know how many people on this site torrent their series/movies.)

      Since I started using this method for streaming video content I find no need for torrents πŸ˜‰ Netflix is very convenient for binge watching and Hulu wil cater for the latest releases. It is actualy more convenient than using torrents and maintaining a local library of stuff you will never watch again on your pc.

        It’s rather annoying creating a list of movies on Netflix and finding out their gone the next month when they add new movies. Like when I wanted to watch the first Avengers before seeing the second.

    Seriously guys…. You want us to list what we want to watch… well for starters, I’m only using Netflix at the moment, moving to Hulu once I’ve caught up on my current series.
    So here is a shortened list of which I wish to watch:
    Supernatural
    Vampire Diaries (for the lady in my life)
    Futurama
    Family Guy
    Daredevil
    Orange is the new black
    CSI: Miami
    I could honestly keep going, but I think this is enough πŸ˜›

    MY favourite thing about Netflix is how they don’t actually care people are using VPNs to access content that major studios prefer to be region-blocked. Because price gouging. Whoops, I meant freedom & choice.

      I know right, it’s another $8 in their pocket every month. It doesn’t seem like a lot but I bet if you count all the subscribers that makes use of VPN it might be a nice sum.

    I wouldn’t mind trying out this service and seeing what all the fuss is about. Yip, I still have a DSTV premium subscription with the Explora and the newish little internet module you have to buy separately that they released to try and compete with Netflix. Cost about R750 now and I get probably about half the content that everybody gets via Netflix and Hulu. So really would nice to test drive something else and see if it’s worth it. DSTV need just a sports package then we are set.
    Busy watching:
    iZombie
    Messengers
    Forever
    Scorpion

        Scorpion I’m on ep 8 so far enjoying it but can be annoying.
        I watch most series with my wife, spending time together, Grimm is one of her favorites.
        iZombie is another wife favorite.
        12 Monkeys got boring towards the middle of the first season but got better and I enjoyed the final few episodes.
        The following also got boring then got better again with the intro of the new character so I am enjoying it again.

          I liked the main character, she was entertaining, but the rest of it… I could feel my brain cells dying. BUT I at least managed to watch the entire episode, which is more than I can say for Aquarius & Proof.

          Aquarius commits the cardinal sin of being BORING & only got half way through the pilot, not even David Duchovny being awesome in it could save it.

          And Proof. Oh Proof. I hate Proof. So much. After only 15/20 minutes of watching it. Because it takes itself so seriously when it’s actually so… incredibly… stupid. I get angry just thinking about it.

          The “highlight” was when skeptical surgeon trope is summoned by eccentric billionaire trope and he demands she research life after death and after the verbal equivalent of sparring with pool noodles the smartest guy in the world earnestly says that even if her research uncovers nothing, he wants proof of nothing. And there goes another brain cell, I sacrificed it for everyone reading this so you don’t have to experience it yourselves.

          Of all the new shows I’ve watched the pilots of so far Dark Matter seems pretty cool, and Mr Robot blew my tiny little mind.

    This service is awesome. Been with Unotelly for quite a while and couldn’t be happier.Mostly netflix here and Hulu is just bloody riddled with ads that it pisses me off. and CrunchyRoll is my anime fix πŸ™‚

    Well to be honest. If I won , I would watch Game of Thrones.

    Yes, yes. I have not watched 1 single episode of it yet, so it would be a great time!

    Thanks for the giveaway.
