I am on a hunt to find a VPN Service which allows me to watch both UK and US shows online and it must be free as I just want to watch couple of shows. The reason is very simple , some of these shows aren’t available in Malaysia due to certain reasons. For instance Family Guy and certain UK only shows. So it makes a great complement for a Media Centre or HTPC. Anyhow , HideIP VPN Service has both Free and Premium Service. There is one catch though , its limited (they only give 100 free account every month) and plus Premium accounts are limited too. This is to ensure that the service that HideIP provides is good. I’ll be requesting my account so that I can review it fully and post my thoughts and feedback of the service.
Anyhow , here are the list of features of their free VPN Service :-
- Connection using PPTP protocol. OpenVPN is offered as premium service.
- Both US and UK servers are available for use
- High speed internet connection
- Encrypts and compresses all traffic including Email, IRC, FTP, DNS, VOIP, instant messengers.
- Bypasses your ISP’s traffic shaping.
- Hides your tracks from internet monitoring or web filtering apps like Websense, Barracuda, etc.
- No logs. We don’t keep any server logs.
- Your IP is hidden while using HideIPVPN.com.
- Works on Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac, Linux, other.
- Easy to install and use.
- Instant VPN account activation.
Another thing , they don’t allow P2P activities. So for those of you are looking for a free VPN Service in order to bypass your ISP restrictions to bypass P2P limits and throttling . I hope to test the service out and to write a review about it. The beauty of this VPN is that you get 2 in 1 (its like killing two birds with one stone). You can have a UK IP address and as well as US IP Address. You’re best in both worlds

Edit : Seems to be a hoax , they still have failed to send me an e-mail regarding a Trial account or a “Free” test account. I am going to post it up. Sure its not 150-400 long lengthy words , but hit me up with a trial account and then we can talk. Till they provide me with a trial account , I am not going to recommend it although a comment from fellow Malaysian seems to be pretty positive , I prefer to “review it” and post my findings bout it. So its up to you , if you’re looking for a way to get free “VPN”
