So the otherwise brilliant service has closed down, as the team behind Tunlr were unable to retain the level of performance needed to compete in the market. So where do you go next?

The best alternative in the market at the moment is Unlocator. The service speedy performance supports all regions and does not require reboots after region changes.

How to get Started With Unlocator

It’s fairly simply to get started with Unlocator:

  1. Create a free Unlocator account
  2. Configure your device to use the Unlocator DNS servers – see setup
  3. Restart the router + devices
  4. Log in to your Unlocator account to make sure you have 3 green check marks (only when using a device with a browser)

From then on it’s simply rock and roll. You can use the region changer to switch to a new region if you like. Most of the 78+ services supported by Unlocator does not require you to change regions.

More Devices Than Unlocator

Lets face it – Tunlr was a hobby project run by some very talented people. They did not have the resources to add as many services and devices like Unlocator. As of this writing Unlocator supports more than 30 different devices including computer, smart tvs, Apple TV, Roku , iPad, iPhone, Android, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii and many more.

Unlocator Uses Just 2 DNS Addresses

A testament to the Unlocator infrastructure is the fact that Unlocator just uses two DNS addresses. The infrastructure will automatically find the nearest DNS service according to your location. This means that Unlocator can keep adding new DNS servers to their infrastructure without the users having to change DNS. The users will simply see the service getting faster and faster. Now that’s pretty cool if you ask me.
