Cool Website of The Week: Tunnel Bear
This is more of a cool service than a website. Have you ever wanted to watch something on a website in the UK (or has anyone you know in the UK wanted to watch something on a website in the US) and been blocked? For example the hit show Downton Abbey in the UK is on BBC, but cannot be accessed on the Internet from the US. What Tunnel Bear does is allow you to surf the web from a UK server so the website thinks you are in the UK and not the US. There is a lot of great TV in the UK and this is a great way to view it. Likewise if you were travelling in the UK this service would allow you to long into all the network sites and more in the US.
The basic service is free for up to 500mb and you can get an extra gig free if you do a TweetOut. For only $4.99 a month you can get unlimted downloads or pay for a year for only $49.99. This is truly an incredible value. Oh yes and you can also use this service on two moblie devices. Check it out at www.tunnelbear.com
