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 too 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 mediaklikk.hu).
It should also be mentioned that in recent time, the Hungarian Sports channel M4 has become a very good one. This is mostly because of the Prime Ministers love for sports, and as a result, the Hungarian people can watch lots of sports for free that people in other nations have to pay for. This is shown, for example, by the way, the Hungarians can watch the Champions League football online, and the same is true about Premier League football and so on (with their normal cable network subscriptions). In other words, this is a great nation if you want to watch football, and M4 is the main channel for that.
It should be mentioned that you cannot watch Premier League football on M4, but instead, another channel named Tv2 and their channel Spiler TV shows the Premier League football. It isn't possible to watch Spiler TV online, so if you look for a way to watch Premier League online, you better read the following article instead to find out how it can be done.
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 PureVPN (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.
