Blockless: Access US Only Websites From Outside The US [10 Free Licenses]

Sometimes websites aim to target Internet users from a specific country. Giving access to all parts of the website to Internet users worldwide would be unnecessary and would simply increase the load on the servers leading to speed delays.

Apart from this, another reason why some websites restrict their content to certain locations is licensing issues. Hulu, for example, lets you view television shows only from the US. If you want to view the content on these websites, you could use web proxies but they do not work on all websites. Here to offer an effective solution via DNS modification is a web service called Blockless.

Basically the application two servers for DNS – primary and secondary. You simply access your network card’s IPv4 settings and use as the primary DNS server and as the secondary DNS server.

With these settings in place, you will be able to browse numerous US-only websites such as Hulu, Pandora, Netflix, ABC Family, and many more. The site lets you create an account and use its services freely for 7 days. If you would like to continue the service beyond that period, you will need to pay a $4.95 monthly subscription.


  • A user-friendly web service.
  • Lets you access content of US-only websites.
  • Works by modifying your network card’s DNS settings.
  • Provides instructional guide on how to modify DNS settings.

  1. Great article Chintan. The DNS option is better than using a VPN regarding content streaming because you can achieve direct connection with the media station ex. Netflix and avoid the “middle-man”. Personally, I am using UnoTelly which is similar to blockless. Perhaps you should check UnoTelly as well if you haven’t done so.
