I finally found a good solution to a problem I've been faced with for as long as I've been connected to the internet. Ever since I can remember, some websites blocked access to their services if you were not located in the USA. Using Proxies or VPN services to disguise your IP did work but finding a good free proxy or VPN service was not easy.
I have now discovered a far simpler solution all packaged in a web browser add on: Hola! unblocker. It uses a VPN connection to allow unblocking of sites and it uses scripts for unblocking sites. They allow other users to create and share scripts too so you can unblock other sites too.
I primarily use it for Hulu (unblocking script included) and Last.FM (downloaded an unblocking script) and it works great! Included scripts are in the image below.
You will need Firefox or Chrome to install the add on or you can just install it as a Windows or Mac application (Android is supported too).
