Freedom on the net Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I mostly use proxmate for the US MTV website and restricted youtube videos. I've tired a few addons that bypass regional blocks on content, and this is the simplest to use. After using it for over a year, I've never had real problems. It was once down when a site had been changed, but a fix was very quick. Other than that, it's always worked.

Not working Rated 1 out of 5 stars


'not working' is not helping on a addon the scale like ProxMate. We have a lot of packages included. Can you tell which exact one didn't work for you?

Forget it if you live in China Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Sorry dev. Good try but going by the reviews your extension is getting here on, it's hit and miss at best.

Please state to users that NOTHING gets unblocked from China. The extension is completely useless here.
People should be told before they waste their time installing and fiddling with this addon.

Best of luck in your endeavours

Edit: (info added as per your request)

This is what's not working
* (hosts YouTube videos)

Working (whereas blocked before)

Not Blocked

So, as you can see, 5 out of 6 that are normally blocked from China are not working


If you could state what exactly is not getting unblocked, it would help a lot. The pages you tried for example.

A big problem is, that satisfied users are not leaving reviews. Only negative, frustrated users take the time to write one which is why this echoes very strongly here.

ProxMate currently has some problems on youtube and hulu, that is correct, but besides that, the entire service is working fine.

Too bad, doesn't work on US TV stations Rated 1 out of 5 stars

US TV stations ABC, CBS, NBC notice I'm not in the US. Good thing I didn't pay for a US Netflix account after the trial period - I would be screwed after MediaHint stopped working yesterday.
I don't understand this whole limitation business anyway:
- If I buy a DVD from a US store I can watch it in my country.
- It's also stupid that for instance Netflix has a different selection for whatever country they offer the service.
It's all a money-making scam for the ever-growing super-rich. Thanks to all who tried to devise work-arounds.

Trial period? Are you sure you are talking about ProxMate? We don't have a trial period nor sell something.
Feel free to give our (new) beta a try - You might like this one!

License stuff is a big business. Some companies license stuff in your country, and some other companies license it in a different country. That it's bad for the end consumer is not a big surprise, but well, it's all about the moneyz.

An Excellent Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've tried a few of this kind of Add-ons and this is the best I've seen so far. Not only because its effectiveness but also because it's safe.
The only downside is when some sites notice it and you have to wait until the next release to get it fixed and be able to enter again (which happens with all of this kind of add-ons), and the fact that it's limited to the most popular websites (It doesn't work everywhere) and its paid "premium" features. It gets the job done in most of the times, though, as I rarely need it for more than a couple of websites.
Overall, 5/5.

It worked fine and then I got a notice when trying to watch a Hulu video that according to my IP address, it shows I'm from another country other than the US and using a proxy service. It said I needed to disable it if from the US. This upset me greatly as I can in no way afford to buy all of the DVD's etc. from series and films I want to see. Please fix this issue immediately.

Please keep in mind that this is a free addon, completely paid off by myself. I am aware that our proxy servers have been blacklisted, but your frustration, and this negative review are not helping.
It will be working again when it's ready.

Hi there, thanks for letting me use your program.
YouTube works perfectly fine (I'm from Germany) but Hulu does'nt work any more, is it just me? Is there an update coming??

Youtube doesent work (for me?) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Youtube doesent work with that addon. Atleast not for me?
My friend and me live both in Germany. For him the addon works and he get the notification that Proxmate will now unblock the video.
I dont get any notification and it just stays on the blocked video, like there wouldnt be any addon installed.

doesn't work anymore for YT Rated 1 out of 5 stars

YouTube probably managed to block the used proxies and now the screen just stays black

if I play a playlist it just stops there (doesn't forward to the next video)

ProxMate doesn't work with Youtube.

And when I turn off Proxmate, and close Firefox, it is on, when I restart Firefox. First noticed in Firefox 29.

Not a prob Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is now one of my must have installed addon.

Not working... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I installed this addon to get access to Youtube, which is blocked here in my country, but unfortunately it didn't help.

I don't live in the United States, by the way.


sadly you happened to install the addon in a time where youtube changed it's layout and broke most proxy extensions.
ProxMate hasn't been updated yet to the new version. Apologies for that.

Only donators get to set country for netflix, so if you're outside the US and want US netflix, this won't let you do it unless you pay for it.
Awful, especially with media hint now charging and hola unblocker being adware crap


country switch is not supported in ProxMate at all. Even for donators, this is a feature which has not been implemented yet.

If you like, you can switch to the chrome / opera version (, which will let you watch US netflix for free! (At least that's the plan)

Firefox will follow soon, but due to different development approach, the version is not ready yet.

Other than that, if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to shoot me an email to Always happy to help.
