    hi there,

    i'm thinking to buy GTV but before i do that i'd like to know if hola unblocker app works in GTV. it unblocks u.s. content on netflix and pandora for not u.s. residents.

    btw how is wireless screaming to GTV from tablets? any lags?

    thanks a lot.

    I don't know about hola-unblocker - but Unblock-US has been reported to work with GTV:

    I thought Hola-unblocker was a Chrome browser extension/add-on which would not work on GTV version of Chrome.

    It looks like there is both an hola-unblocker Chrome extension and an hola-accelerator/unblocker app:

    GTV doesn't support Chrome extensions.

    And the Hola app description in Google Play Store mentions that it requires root on various versions of android. So it's not likely to work on GTV either. There is a slight chance it might work after the GTV Jellybean update (due out in third quarter). It mentions that not all Android 4.0 devices require root.

    You can wirelessly stream SOME videos via DLNA and certain apps - but currently there is no all-encompassing solution for full mirroring on GTV devices. There is currently no way to mirror Netflix from a mobile device/PC to GTV. (You can use the Able Remote app to control your GTV Netflix Instant Queue on a mobile device):

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.entertailion.android.tvremote


    I believe you can use the Chromemote Chrome extension with a PC/laptop to fling the Netflix URL to your GTV device. I have not tested it myself. Chromemote will only work with videos/content that are natively supported on GTV devices (thus Chromemote won't function as a HBO GO workaround for GTV):

    http://chromemote.com/


    You could use a PC/laptop with Playon or the Plex Plug-ins to stream a lot of content via DLNA to your GTV device. You can stream Hulu and other content that is blocked on the GTV browser this way:

    http://www.playon.tv/

    *Note: OK since you are outside of the USA no guarantees that PlayOn will work for you. The Unblock-US service mentions that they don't support Playon:

    http://support.unblock-us.com/customer/portal/questions/249309-playon-tv-compatibility


    (According to PlayOn they only support their service for use in the USA):
