Hungary is the land of the 56′ revolution and is known to be a horse-riding people with a splendid Goulash soup and some fat goose liver on the menu. The Magyars (Hungarians) is a friendly people, and if you want to spend some time virtually in Hungary, then find out how to get a Hungarian IP address here.
The Hungarian Parliament is known to be one of the most beautiful parliament buildings in the world. The building is one of the many impressive buildings being part of the panorama. If you are in love with the city of Budapest, or maybe just the nation, or maybe the horribly hard to learn Hungarian language, then an IP in Hungary might help you to watch some more programs about the nation of Hungary, about the city of Budapest and it will give you plenty of chances to hear the Hungarian language.
Why do people need a Hungarian IP address?
There are not to many reasons why people need an IP address in Hungary, but the most common reason is to watch TV programs and shows. In general most Hungarian TV channels have online streams available to people in all of the world, but during special events they often use geographical blocks making the program unavailable to people outside Hungary. Some of the channels using geo-blocks are RTL Klub (with their RTL Most) and typically M1 and M2 during events such as summer olympics, soccer matches et cetera (often shown at Telesport.hu).
How to get a Hungarian IP address
To get hold of a Hungarian IP address you can find some friend in Hungary who has a computer which he can set up as a VPN server, to which you can connect and once connected, you will have an IP in Hungary. In most cases people do not have friends in Hungary, and then you will have to use one of the public VPN services instead. Unfortunately most of those do not have servers in Hungary, but my favorite VPN service which is called HideMyAss (read my review) do have a server in Hungary, meaning that if you sign up for their VPN service you can find yourself residing virtually in Hungary in a few minutes from now. Here is what you need to do to get going.
Hungarian IP in five steps
