Review StreamLocator Hub VPN Alternative for Roku, Smart TVs, Apple TV, etc.


hey everybody it’s lan seidman we’re taking a look today at something rather interesting this is called the stream locator and although this looks like a router it’s actually something different what you do is you connect your tv boxes to it either over wi-fi or ethernet and it will perform those tv containers appear as though they’re physically in a different location and why that’s important is that sometimes if you’re trying to stream a neighbourhood baseball game you get hit with that blackout this allows you to route around that it will likewise let you watch tv from another country so for example if you’re trying to watch some american streaming services you can bring this overseas with you and push your roku box into it and you can start watching those things it’s same to how some vpn assistances design but a lot of smart-alecky tvs and streaming machines like roku containers don’t supporter vpns and this will allow you to use those manoeuvres in a manner that was that you really couldn’t before and we’re going to take a closer look at this thing and how it has worked in exactly a few seconds but i do want to let you know in the interest of full disclosure this came in free of charge from the manufacturer however all the beliefs you’re about to hear are my own no one is paying for this review nor has anyone re-examine or approved what you’re about to see before it was uploaded so let’s get into it now and see how the stream locator container undertakings now the rate time on this is a matter of 85 in addition to the cost of the hardware there is also an annual subscription that you have to pay for but it comes with a year of that subscription out of the box now if you compensate

annually that subscription payments about seventy dollars per year if you decide to go month to month it’s about seven dollars a month now although this looks like a router it doesn’t supersede your router instead you plug your router into it so what the hell are you do is you run an ethernet cable from your existing router or actually any port on your network over to the wan port on the back of the flow locator and then you connect your machines to the wi-fi here you can also connect up your streaming maneuvers to the ethernet now at the time i’m recording this video they corroborate precisely over 60 services and some of those are subscription services and others are free now on the due services you need to have an active subscription with the service that you’re looking to migrate parts with so if you don’t have a subscription this doesn’t get you one for free but it does allow you to use your due for a us-based service in another country or vice versa and what i would suggest you do is take a look at what they currently aid and see if it’s going to work for you additionally they have a free chrome plug-in an extension that will allow you to test things out first if you want to see how it might work on your computer before is moving forward and purchasing the device and the services offered now one of the things i was excited to try with the creek locator was netflix because it’s all over their sell unfortunately though netflix is not currently working with it at the time i’m recording this video torrent locator says they are working on getting it available once again but right now it is not functional and i think this is something to keep in mind with this product because it’s going to be a cat and mouse game between brook locator and some of these vpn

services and the stream providers who of course don’t want you migrating yourself to another country so just be aware of that some services that work today may not work tomorrow all right let’s take a look now and see how this works i’ve got an android tv maneuver right now connected to my local wi-fi but not to the stream locator i’ve got the bbc iplayer now which of course is the bbc app that exclusively works in the uk and if i try to watch one of these bbc presents here you can see that something went wrong loading the program because i am not currently showing as though i’m in the united kingdom so what i’m going to do now is go over to my defines now and i’m going to connect my wi-fi to the stream locator so let’s go over to this and select the creek locator and connect and formerly it’s done connecting i’m going to reload the bbc iplayer and we should be able to watch some of this content let’s have a look all right so we’re back in the app now but now we’re connected to the stream locator’s wi-fi and if we go over here to the bbc and look at what’s on live right now you’ll see that it comes up and starts playing like we were located in the uk and the reason is is that the brook locator has persuaded the bbc servers that were actually in the uk when in fact we are here in the united states so this is a

great way if you are looking to get access to uk tv to do it although you do need to keep in mind that it’s a little tricky to get the apps invested on your smart tv or streaming machine because these apps are not available in the us app store so in the case of the roku you actually have to set up a uk roku report and have a roku that’s logged into that uk detail so you can get the apps on it in the case of the android tv manoeuvre here i had to sideload the bbc iplayer app from apkmirror.com because this app won’t install through the us google play store on apple tv it will work as well but you have to set up a uk apple account to get the app so it’s not the easiest thing to do but it does work now one thing that is easy to do though is get around local sports blackouts here in the united states let’s take a look at two examples of that now if we take a look at mlb.tv you’ll see that the boston red sox the brand-new york yankees and the new york matches are blacked out here in my zip code in connecticut and of course those are the three squads that parties in connecticut be concerned about “the worlds largest” and the other night there was a subway serial in new york municipal between the yankees and the sees and if you pulled that up on mlb.tv even with a due you couldn’t watch it but what i did is i connected it up through the creek locator here and i was able to

get the game to play because this will migrate you outside of the blackout province so you can actually watch the game that you’re paying for now i encounter though with mlb’s app that it wasn’t as simple on android as just quitting the app and reloading it after you switch wi-fi networks i actually had to uninstall the app and reinstall it while the android invention was connected to the stream locator so if you’re getting blackouts after you first connect to the stream locator try reinstalling the app while you’re on the river locator’s wi-fi and that should get it labouring now we’re going to jump into the stream locators configuration sheet because the nfl is available if you’re outside the us through a service called the zone and it’s actually a lot less expensive to use the zone versus some of the other streaming services here in the us now we have to do is tell the stream locator where we want to pop out in the world so you can select your orientation for hand-picked services here in your configuration screen and for the zone we’re going to set ourselves up as a canada witnes and that they are able to altogether deepen the service so check out what i did on sunday when there was a bunch of nfl tournaments running initially “i probably shouldve” the locating alteration up thing incapacitated and when i logged into the zone i got boxing and a few other plays not much and then when i switched it to canadians and logged back in all of a sudden i got every nfl tournament that was currently being played on sunday available to me lives and they all exactly labor it is therefore definitely does work as advertised specially if

you’re trying to get live plays on and i know that’s been a big irritation for rope cutters because there’s so many blackout settles in effect it’s often hard to get these tournaments that you’re paying to watch and this might be a way to go around that at least until the zone figures out how to fasten you out of that canadian region now i’m sure countless readers to the channel are seeing plex here on the index and you can assign a relocation to plex content for the united states now this is not for your own hosted plex content this is for their free material that they’re offering and of course they furnish free material all over the world but it goes based on the region so here you can prepared your location to the united states and you can get access to all of the free plex material that is available here in my country and in full disclosure plex is an occasional sponsor now on the channel but they are not sponsoring this video now to get a little nerdy here this is no longer a vpn so it’s not tunneling you through some other connection your ip address will likely be visible to the services you’re connecting to what it does do is it uses some routing ploys and proxying when required to get the services to believe that you’re set someplace else but it tries to do the bare minimum so that you have the best performance so just be aware of that this is not a privacy design nor is it a vpn and one advantage of this not being a vpn is that if you load up an xbox game for example and the xbox is connected to the stream locator here it’ll pass through that recreation data

without doing any rerouting but once you discontinued the game and load up a supported media app on that xbox it will do the rerouting for that which is pretty neat i just know though that you are setting up a doubled nat situation when you have this connected to your system because this creates a separate local network that is going through your existing router so sometimes games have some issues perforating through two routers to get to you but beyond that it will pass through anything that it’s not going to reroute now is this better than a vpn well i think if you’re trying to connect up roku’s and smart televisions and interesting thing and you’re not too great with networking this is going to be a lot simpler because all they have to do is connect and they’ll be rerouted automatically in fact in their marketing now they’re saying leave the vpns to the fans and i think that’s a very good tagline because if you are an enthusiast you probably know how to get your designs been incorporated into a vpn and if you’d rather not futz with it just get this thing and connect them up automatically and you’re done the only risk you have with this is that there might be works that just stop working all of a sudden and they’ll have to oblige some adjustments to get them making again and beyond that risk i did find it to be a very simple product to get up and running and a real fun little thing to play around with over the last couple of days that is going to do it for now until next time this is lon seidman thanks for watching this path is brought to you by the london tv advocates including golden statu advocates hot sauce and video games brian parker chris allegretta tom albrecht thomas anfang jim tannis and handheld obsession if you want to help the channel you can by contributing as little as a dollar a month head over to lawn dot tv support to learn more so and don’t forget to subscribe visit lawn dot tv s
