Sadly, Pandora streaming radio is leaving Australia and New Zealand. However, Aussies and Kiwis can keep listening to Pandora beyond this date with these simple tricks.

 Smart DNS

The simplest and best trick to use to keep listening to Pandora in Australia is to use a smart DNS.  These services trick Pandora’s servers into thinking you are located in the United States.  More great news is that smart DNS will also unblock hundreds of other streaming services around the globe including BBC iPlayer, HBO Now and Netflix’s superior US movie library.

I recommend you consider two services, Unlocator and Getflix.  The advantage of Unlocator is that is has a free trial so you can try it out first risk free (followed by a paid subscription services) while Getflix offers a one-payment lifetime subscription.

If you intend to use Pandora from a Windows PC or Mac then a smart DNS is the way to go to keep listening to Pandora after it leaves Australia.

Virtual Private Networks

Virtual Private Networks or VPNs tunnel your internet traffic through encrypted overseas servers that trick Pandora that your device is located in the United States so you can keep listening to Pandora.

VPNs are best if you want to keep streaming Pandora on the go using your smartphone (note Getflix above also includes a smart VPN service).

There are plenty of VPN deals available however apopular VPN deal that include smart phone apps (you’ll need apps to keep this easy) is VPN Unlimited.

So, if anyone asks you for alternatives to Pandora now that it is shutting down in Australia you can proudly show them how easy it is to keep on listening to Pandora anywhere in the world.

How to get and install Pokémon GO anywhere in the world (Android) – step by step guide

Pokémon GO is taking the US, Germany, Australia and New Zealand by storm.  Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered on planet Earth!

Get Pokemon GO free here

However, if you are outside the United States, Germany, Australia or New Zealand you won’t find the incredibly popular Pokémon GO app in the Android Play Store.  This step-by-step guide will show you how to install Pokémon GO on your Android device no matter where you live.  It’s safer than downloading the APK (app file) from a random site (which could be infected) but it is a little bit complicated.

Step 1: Get a VPN to hide your location on the internet

First, you are going to need a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to trick your device that you are located in the United States when you are really in another country. VPNs securely tunnel your internet through computer servers located overseas (in this case the United States) which is how the trick works.

I recommend buying a lifetime subscription to a VPN so you don’t have to pay ongoing monthly fees.

The cheapest VPN that I recommend is which is super cheap and has a very simple and easy to use Windows desktop app.  If you have a Mac, try VPN Unlimited which also has an app for Mac OS X.

Step 2: Install and start your VPN

Follow the VPN instructions to install on your Windows PC or Mac.  Start the VPN and choose a server in the United States.

Once you have your VPN service, you may try to skip to step 9.  If that doesn’t work, come back to step 3.  

Step 3: Download and install an Android emulator on your Windows PC or Mac

You can install an Android emulator on your Windows PC or Mac.  The emulator lets your computer pretend it’s an Android phone or tablet so you can download the Pokémon GO app from the Google Play Store and join Pokémon GO.

For Windows PCs, download and install the Droid4X emulatorat Remember you should still have your VPN running through a server in the United States.

For Mac OS X (and Windows PCs) you can try the Andy Android emulator at

Step 4: Run the Android emulator on your computer

Remember, make sure you have your VPN already running through a server and the United States.

Start your Android emulator.  Droid4X has an option in the bottom of the screen to relocate your GPS location using a map.  Pick somewhere in the United States.  Close Droid4X and restart it.  The Android emulator now thinks you are in the United States (you need both the VPN and GPS simulator pointing to the United States for this to work).

Step 5: Open the Google Play store in your Android emulator

The US version of the Google Play store should open.

Step 6: Search for and install the Pokémon GO Android app

If you can’t find it then the non-US version of the Google Play store is open.  Follow step 4 againclosely.

Step 7: Open the Pokémon GO app and sign-up

Follow the steps to sign-up for Pokémon GO.  Don’t start playing now. Using GPS spoofing in Pokémon GO gameplay may get you banned for life! You have been warned.

Step 8: Go to the Google Play Store and install on your devices

Go to the Pokémon GO app page at the Google Play Store, make sure you are signed in to your Google Play Store account, and choose which devices you want to install the Pokémon GO app. Hopefull your Android Phone will show up.  If it does, happy playing.

If the Pokémon GO app doesn’t show up for your Android Phone then uh oh.  But all is not lost, keep going through the next steps.

Step 9: get the VPN running on your Android Phone

If you signed up for, the instructions for running the VPN are at:

If you chose another VPN, find the Android instructions on their website (or they may have an Android VPN app).

Make sure you select a server in the United States.

Step 10: Reboot your Android Phone and start the VPN server in the US

You need to reboot your phone, don’t skip this step. Once the phone has rebooted, immediately start the United States VPN server before doing anything else.

Step 11: Open Google Play store

Once you have rebooted the phone and started the United States VPN server, open the Google Play Store and it should be the US version of the app store.  Find the Pokémon GO store and install it.  Sign in and then reboot your phone.

Step 12: Enjoy Pokémon GO!!!

How to watch Marvel’s Jessica Jones coming to Netflix in November

Marvel’s Jessica Jones television series is coming to Netflix on 20 November 2015.  All episodes will be available meaning you can binge watch Jessica Jones all weekend.

If Netflix is not available in your country, just follow the instructions on my home page to see how to unblock Netflix USA so you too can stream Jessica Jones and other great titles on Netflix.

The stunningly beautiful Krysten Ritter stars as Jessica Jones, a former superhero who opens her own detective agency after an end to her previous career as a superhero.



How to watch Hollyoaks on 4oD for free outside the U.K.

Yes, you can watch Hollyoaks outside the United Kingdom using Channel 4’s streaming media player 4oD (4 on demand).

You just need to use a smart DNS provider to trick your device and 4oD that you are located in the U.K. when really you are in another country like Australia, India or the United States (or anywhere else with the internet).

Like almost all other streaming television and movie services, 4oD uses geoblocking to prevent people from outside the country from watching their shows online. Like most technology, there is an easy way to bypass 4oDs geoblocking to unlock Hollyoaks and all of the other titles being streamed on 4oD. Even better, the same trick will also bypass geoblocks so you can watch the BBC iView, Netflix USA, Hulu and more from outside the United Kingdom and the United States.

The easiest way is to use a smart DNS service which transparently unblocks streaming media without doing anything else to the rest of your internet browsing.  If you set up a smart DNS on your internet router (i.e. the device that connects you to the internet at home) then all your devices that connect to the internet through your router will magically be unblocked to access overseas streaming video services. Otherwise, you can also unblock each device one-by-one.

A smart DNS service works in the background so once you have set it up, you don’t have to do anything special to unblock and watch overseas streaming services.  Just go to your favourite overseas service, bring up your favourite show, and start watching!

Want to know how? Just go to our home page and follow the smart DNS steps for Netflix USA (the same steps work for all overseas streaming services).

If you also want to protect your online privacy and want to watch 4oD on your laptop, Mac or tablet, then you will want to get a Virtual Private Network (VPN).  A VPN will protect your online privacy and you can also use a VPN to trick 4oD and other sites that you are located in the country of your choice.  Check out how to choose a VPN at our partner site by clicking here.
