How to access Netflix HULU Pandora Outside America

Most of us living outside United States of America are deprived of some great services such as Netflix, Hulu, Pandora etc. People outside USA keep on searching for how to watch Netflix outside USA. In this article, I’ll show you the easiest way to watch Hulu outside the US that too absolutely free. You don’t need to pay for a VPN service provider to access these services from other part of world.

This tutorial is performed on Ubuntu 13.04 and requires to change your DNS server. This trick exploits the fact that most of these US-based services monitor entries based on IP address. If your IP address is a non-USA IP, you won’t get the access. Tunlr is one free project that manipulates the DNS and tricks the servers in US in believing that the incoming request is from a USA based IP.

Tunlr is no longer available now. No need to worry. You can use Unlocator instead of Tunlr. It’s free while in beta, so hurry up!

How to use Tunlr to watch Netflix and Hulu outside America:

Tunlr is just a DNS resolving service. So all you have to do is to change your DNS server with Tunlr server. That’s it. Nothing else needs to be done. No software to download or install. To change the DNS server, you’ll have to edit the /etc/resolv.conf file in Ubuntu and other Linux OS. Open a terminal and use the following command:

sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf

This will open the file in Gedit so that you can easily it in the GUI. In here, comment out the previous DNS settings by putting a hash (#) before it and add the following servers:


The file will look like this after the editing:

You can verify that DNS changes are working fine by going to Tunlr and check the status there. It should show you the activation status in green like this:
