Expat Problem Solved: Access Hulu+ (and other sites) From Every Country


As you guys probably know by now: M and I are huge TV junkies. Since we don't like commercial breaks, waiting week/s before watching the next episode, or buying DVD box sets for $$ and only watching them once, we decided to get a Hulu+ account. And man, do we love it! We don't even have cable or satellite TV yet! 

The bad part about being an expat, traveling back and forth from USA to Europe: We can't use our Hulu+ while being abroad. The smartypants internet realizes we are using a non-US IP, and booooom: BLOCKED!

I will be going to visit family in Germany mid June, and I will stay 3 weeks. Since I will be on vacation, and my family and friends will probably be working during the day, I was very, very happy to get the opportunity to check out Tunnelbear.com so I will be able to use Hulu - and I will share my opinion with you in this little review!



TunnelBear is an app that makes it really easy to browse the internet like you're in another country. More than 2 million people have used TunnelBear to unblock websites like Hulu, Netflix, and Pandora.

There are many reasons why you might want to use TunnelBear.com, even if you are not a TV junkie like me:
  • Unblock Pandora / Spotify when you’re traveling or out of the country
  • Use TunnelBear to unblock sports feeds for Soccer, NHL, MLB and NFL
  • Vote for contestants on reality shows when you’re outside the country
  • Keep yourself safe while using public WIFI networks 


The best part: TunnelBear is available for your PC, Android devices, AND Apple devices!


Installing the app is as easy as 123. If not even easier: 

Yep, that's it! There are some awesome YouTube videos that guide you through the whole installing process as well. Here goes an example, but you can check them all out here: CLICK!






And some screenshots from an Android device! I hope it helps :o)



Depending on how much data you intend to use, TunnelBear offers 3 different packages: 
  • FREE – 500MBs of free data each and every month. You can also get a bonus 1GB of free data by participating in their twitter promotion. There is even a gauge that lets you know how many MBs you have used.
  • Unlimited $4.99 per month - Have an iPad, iPhone or Android 4.01+ device? Purchase a TunnelBear on your PC or Mac and you will also receive unlimited tunnelling on two additional mobile devices!
  • $49.99 per year – Pay for 1 year of unlimited service and you will save 17%. Your service will NOT be automatically renewed.


Great deal! What would or WILL you use TunnelBear for?

  3. I would love to be a big traveler some day but I don't go out of the country often. I can see how awesome this would be though! My inlaws are in S. Korea so I will have to share this with them!
