Everybody loves a good TV show, be it American or European. However, in most countries, most of the popular shows are played out a few months or years after it is originally airs. Despite the penetration of the Internet to the furthest parts of the world, not everyone gets access to all the best international entertainment shows in their respective countries. If you for one, want to stay updated with all the latest happenings in Orange Is the New Black, or hope to unwind your work day with a laugh in Modern Family, or just cannot get enough of BBC Panorama, then waiting for the various international networks to sort out their legal and business issues and streaming rights is not gonna cut it. That’s why a service like UnoTelly instantly grabs your attention.
UnoTelly is a DNS based service that lets you access over 250 popular channels from international providers such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant, ABC network and others from anywhere in the world, even if such content is block by geo restrictions. UnoTelly’s global presence ( it has over 30 UnoDNS servers geographically distributed around the world) ensures that no matter where in the world you are, there’s a local UnoDNS server near you. Unlike the usual DNS or proxy servers that limit access to a region, UnoTelly’s new Dynamo service lets you access a channel, say Netflix from any part of the world, be it Mexico, Brazil, or US.
It works by changing the current DNS IP address that your device uses into one that will make use of UnoTelly’s DNS servers. This ensures that whenever you access the channels, it will appear as though you are doing so from the US. UnoTelly also promises fast services with no streaming lags, thanks to the absence of the so called middlemen who usually hog your connection speeds. UnoTelly is supported on a wide variety of devices, from your Windows PC and Mac to your iOS and Android devices, Wii, PlayStation and Xbox consoles, HDTV’s and Routers.
UnoTelly currently offers two plans, the Premium plan which costs $4.95/month and the Gold plan which cost 7.95$/month. Both plans offer 100% Unlimited UnoDNS Access, over 250 channels unlocked globally, over 30 fast DNS Servers, 24/7 live support and 7-days Moneyback Guarantee. In addition the Gold plan throws in a VPN connection, US, UK, Canada, Netherlands VPN servers, and secured servers to prevent snooping and to protect your identity. Anyone can trial UnoTelly for free with no credit card details required.
Setting up UnoTelly
I signed up for a free trial of the service and found that the step by step instructions detailed on the website was very helpful in getting connected. It’s a pretty simple process as you first need change your DNS settings by opening up Control Panel, then clicking Network and Internet-> Network and Sharing Center and clicking Change adapter settings in the left panel. If you are using Wi-Fi as I am, you need to right-click that connection and choose Properties. Then double-click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and in the dialog that opens up, select Use the following DNS server addresses. you’ll need to input the closest DNS servers from your location, which can be found here. That’s it. You can confirm your setup is complete by clicking here.
A guided tour will show you around the interface and the first thing you’ll notice is the colorful tile based interface, with loads of features that can be dragged around and customized to your convenience. As far as watching the shows go, you’ll need to have additional subscription from the channel providers to watch many of the channels on your computer or other mobile device. I found this to be the case on the ABC Network, Amazon Instant and Netflix though there were others I could access without any issues. As far as speeds go, streaming was a slow go affair, so you’ll probably need to have a fast internet connection at home for this to work smoothly.
UnoTelly is a pretty good service for anyone who simply must watch the latest news, sports, movies and TV shows from around the world. While UnoTelly’s fee is quite reasonable, remember that you’ll need to be subscribed individually to certain providers to access individual channels. And the quality of streaming depends on your Internet connection as well. That aside, UnoTelly takes you into a world that simply wasn’t an option before and that’s fantastic in itself.
Be sure to check out the 8 day free trial before you sign up for a UnoTelly plan because its definitely worth your time!
