Please dont use Hola, it sells your connection to others so they can use your line to download their series, so your IP shows on the torrent downloads ;)

Mortum,
hehe :-) but for avoiding this one you can use theoretically 'the incognito module'.
or on the other hand, which plugin can you suggest if we have limited cover for watching movies etc ?;-)
thanks

Incognio mode wouln't work, watch your taskmanager/network activity when using Hola youll see activity even when you are not actively browsing.

I use Private internet access as VPN ($3,50(ish) per month, but you can "hide" 3 devices, it even has a mobile app), its great to hide your (protection against DDOS) real IP when using skype with "sketchy" costumers, and we use it when we are working with some "top secret" stuff.
I used it at home so i was able to get a YouTube Red subscription while it wasnt released in The Netherlands :P

Not a advertisement, just liking the service :)
Any paid VPN should do the trick, and remember, nothing is free on the internet :P
(free services often sell connections or personal details off their users)

Is this the same team that did the last programs in Italy. They were really enjoyable.

This series was quite well done, and inspirational, IMHO. The combined use of photogrammetry and terrestrial scanning was smooth and thrilling at times - even before the VR element was introduced. I actually learned some things via the use of 'reality capture', which is the whole point when all is said and done. Kudos to ScanLabs, BBC, and, PBS for this excellent production. If you missed the series on television, it is still available online.
