Using Unblock Us to watch Netflix, listen to Pandora, etc. on your Google TV, Android tablet or phone? This handy little tool automatically reactivates your IP address with unblock-us.com every time it changes, and let's you switch to a different content region, all without having to go through the web browser.
The tool gets out of your way by running as a background service which sleeps until it gets notified about changes in your network connectivity, in which case it will silently contact unblock-us.com to register your new IP address. The region switcher allows you to change content you're seeing comfortably from within the app.
Note that it's possible, though not necessary, to run this app on several Android devices at once. Unblock Us is device agnostic, it only cares about your public IP address, which in a typical home network scenario all devices share.
