Free VPN services

Any recommendations! I would like to watch streaming video from Hulu etc.

Streaming video = high bandwith = significant cost= good luck with that.
even if you found a free one that allowed video I imagine it would be so limited that it would be useless

http://us.hotfreevpn.com/ for USA sites eg Hulu and Netflix http://uk.hotfreevpn.com/ for UK sites eg BBC Those are PPTP VPN so you don't need to install other programs just configure them in the network settings, like the guide below

The easiest way I've found to watch Hulu is to use Chrome and use the Media Hint extension which tricks Hulu into thinking you are in the states

Why don't you want to pay! There is nothing really free, as you get what you pay for.

Why pay when you can get it for free! I'd rather use my money buying hardware.

Hotfreevpn have decent speeds and work fine for streaming, the only think I dislike is the 8 hour cut off but all you need to do is reconnect and you are good to go again for another 8 hours.

But you can't get a decent service free, that doesn't have some restrictions.Someone also has to pay for it somewhere along the line, as it has a cost.
So you don't buy software!

No I don't buy software, I use free open-source software.
