Netflix started out as an online movie rental company. With time, the company eventually started offering online streaming services. They have recently achieved more measures of success by funding and producing their own original content such as house of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
The service has transformed the television industry worldwide, with more people subscribing to its services to gain access to their favourite television series programmes. An increasing number of South Africans have made the shift to binge-watching, which has increased the demand for services offered by the likes of Netflix.
So what is the Netflix and UnoTelly connection?
While South Africans have had access to a catalogue unique to the geographical location, more individuals have been trying to gain access to the US catalogue, which has more content.
What is UnoTelly?
UnoTelly works like a VPN and only deals with data that is important to your service. With the recent introduction of Netflix to South African audiences, many South Africans have been trying to gain access to the US catalogue’s content.
In comes UnoTelly!
South African viewers have been using UnoTelly to gain access to international streaming services which are geo-blocked.
How does it work?
You can sign up for Netflix using UnoTelly.
To access the service, you’ll need a credit card. If UnoTelly is working and your machine is configured correctly, you should be able to sign up for Netflix.
UnoTelly’s Kostas Polichronos told technology publication MyBroadband:
“We have backup plans and our users will be able to continue accessing Netflix content outside their local region.”
This follows Netflix’s decision to crack down on subscribers using VPNs, proxies and unblockers to get access to its US catalogue.
According to recent reports, Netflix has imposed stringent bans on the operations of services offered by the likes of UnoTelly.
