Stream Your Halloween Away With Shudder

Get ready for Halloween with Shudder

Shudder – Horror Movies to Stream All Halloween

Halloween’s just a couple weeks away, and aside from the costume-planning, the main way most of us celebrate this most wickedly fun time of the year is by watching horror movies

Horror movie fans know that Netflix Instant, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime Instant have a some choice selections that suit their needs, but wouldn’t it be so much easier if there were a streaming site that dispensed with the riff-raff and just got down to the gore-y goods?

Meet Shudder

Rejoice, horror fans! Shudder is here!

Not too much to explain here: it’s a streaming site geared towards fans of horror movies. The selection is a little limited, as it’s only just recently launched, but this definitely simplifies things for the horror movie fan who wants to spend less time searching through the vast libraries of the more broadly appealing streaming sites.

Shudder costs $5 a month or $50 for the whole year. And you get a 14-day free trial, which means that you could, theoretically, start your trial today and it’ll last you almost the whole way to Halloween 2015.

A Few Choice Shudder Movies

Carnival of Souls – Let’s start things off with a classic, shall we? A woman improbably emerges alive from a car wreck and finds herself inexplicably drawn to an eerie abandoned carnival. That’s the whole plot, but this cult classic has endured more on the basis of its entrancing atmospherics than its complicated story. Definitely a good way to start off the Halloween season.

Santa Sangre – And while we’re in the realm of the surreal, maybe a little nightmarish arty horror from Alejandro Jodorowsky is in order. Santa Sangre, which tells the story of a man who brings his armless mother with him everywhere as he commits murders (at her bidding, of course), is full of unshakeable, horrifying images, making this the kind of horror movie that gets under your skin more than it startles you.

Stream The Hills Have Eyes on Shudder.

The Hills Have Eyes – Shudder Streaming Movies

The Hills Have Eyes – Freak yourself out and celebrate the work of the sadly and recently departed writer/director Wes Craven by streaming The Hills Have Eyes. Surely you’re aware of the remakes, which added the gloss that a bigger budget can get you, but the original’s grimy, punky energy serves the story of a family with a broken-down camper trying to survive among mutants much better.

The House of the Devil – Until this film is widely considered a modern horror classic, we’re just going to keep on recommending it. Ti West’s breakthrough movie is impeccable, both as a tribute to ’80s schlock horror and as a masterfully calibrated, tension-ratcheting horrorshow. Plus, it’s got Tom Noonan, an invaluable asset to any eerie movie.

Willow Creek – The second-act of Bobcat Goldthwait’s career as a writer/director of wholly unique, low-budget indies has been undeniably unexpected and rewarding (his latest, the harrowing and funny documentary Call Me Lucky, is an essential stream). With that in mind, it makes perfect sense for Goldthwait to apply his sensibility to a cheap-o horror movie set at Willow Creek, the home of the Bigfoot legend.

Enjoy Shudder Streaming With a FlashRouter

Best Routers - Hulu Plus

Best Router to Stream Hulu Plus- Nighthawk X6 R8000

Horror movies are typically pretty tense, and we suppose you could make them even more tense by adding the elements of random buffering or untimely freezes to the mix, but our guess is you’d rather have a fluid, uninterrupted streaming experience.

Enter FlashRouters. We know you’re doing a lot of streaming, which is a bandwidth-intensive process. Therefore you need a router that can handle any amount of network traffic you can throw at it, and our devices are just what you’re looking for.

How do we ensure such a thing? By flashing our routers with DD-WRT and Tomato firmware. These replacement open source firmwares add a level of power and versatility to our routers that cannot be matched elsewhere. You can access advanced security options, extend your wireless range, and even prioritize how your bandwidth is allocated.

We offer a variety of routers across a variety of price ranges, and you can peruse some of our finest on our recent best-sellers list. There you’ll find gems like the terrific and supremely affordable Linksys E2500 Tomato, as well as dizzyingly fast and supremely powerful tri-band devices like the Netgear R8000 Wireless-AC3200 DD-WRT, and everything in between.

Stream Shudder From Anywhere With a VPN

And if you’re not in a country where Shudder is available, our routers are perfectly VPN-friendly, which you means you can access Shudder from anywhere in the world.

If you’re subscribed to a VPN on our official supported provider list, we can send your FlashRouter fully programmed with your VPN subscription right out of the box. Believe us, it’s better than dealing with the installation process on your own, which can lead to bricked routers and a lot of heartache.

Looking for a recommendation on the best router or VPN for you and your setup? Send it over. Our DD-WRT specialists are ready to answer your questions and help you choose the right device.

Netflix Instant By Country Showdown #8: Tom Hanks

Netflix Comparison by Country - US, UK, Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, Canada

Updated: March 2016

There are few issues about which the US is in lock-step agreement, but one of them is the overwhelming nature of Tom Hanks’ everyman charm. He’s a genial interviewee, a modest megastar, and a supremely talented actor to boot.

Ever since winning consecutive Best Actor Oscars for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump, Hanks has held an unchallenged position on the A-list. He’s only bolstered that position by appearing in one beloved film after another: movies like Apollo 13Saving Private Ryan, and the recent Captain Phillips.

And he’s nowhere near done yet. This coming October, we’ll be treated to a Hanks/Steven Spielberg reunion when Bridge of Spies hits theaters nationwide. Something tells us you can look forward to a Steven Spielberg Netflix showdown in the near future as well.

In the meantime, let us inaugurate Tom Hanks into the hallowed halls thus far occupied by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer LawrenceDenzel Washington, etc. Let’s see which country’s Netflix Instant has the most Tom Hanks movies!

We have another tie! Argentina and Mexico share the top prize with their 15 (count ’em) Tom Hanks movies. That’s a lot of everyman charm to ingest!

On the other end, we have Canada, which finished last with a dismal 6 Tom Hanks movies. And despite Tom Hanks’ much-vaunted all-American charm, we here in the states are only given 7 Tom Hanks movies to stream in his home country, and only one of those qualify as Hanks classics (Forrest Gump). But that’s no big deal, because…

Streaming Tom Hanks Movies From Anywhere

If the Tom Hanks movie is on Netflix Instant anywhere in the world, you can watch it, provided you’re subscribed to a VPN.

The purpose of a VPN, or Virtual Private Network, is to secure your online data by tunneling your information through encrypted servers set up all over the world anytime you log in. In that regard, VPNs are truly necessary and invaluable, but VPNs are also incredibly useful for those of us who wish to bypass arbitrary geographical web restrictions.

As we’ve demonstrated above, Netflix Instant’s libraries change dramatically from country to country, and with a VPN, you can explore them all. All you have to do is log in to your VPN, choose a server in the country with the Netflix Instant you want to see, and you’re ready!

Best VPNs for Netflix Instant Location Changing

Just about any of the VPNs on our official supported provider list will offer top-notch coverage in South America and Europe (where many of Tom Hanks movies are available), so we whittled it down to the cream of the crop for you.

  1. HideMyAss – Most IP Addresses in the Netflix countries listed.
  2. IPVanish – The only tier-1 only VPN service for premium performance and speeds.
  3. PureVPN – A server in each of these Netflix covered plus virtual US & UK servers for top speeds.
  4. NordVPN – Protect your online identity today with NordVPN, one of the fastest-growing VPN providers in the industry.

Best FlashRouters for Netflix Instant

But ensuring that your wireless network is versatile and secure enough to enjoy Tom Hanks movies whenever you’d like involves more than just picking the right VPN. A FlashRouter is the missing piece if it’s flawless international streaming that you’re looking for.

To start, our DD-WRT and Tomato-flashed routers are designed to give you a powerful, fast, and reliable wireless network. But a FlashRouter is so much more than that: you can extend your wireless range with a FlashRouter, or access advanced security options, or even control the allocation of your bandwidth, allowing you to prioritize bandwidth-hogging websites (like Netflix).

A FlashRouter even makes VPN usage easier: if you’re subscribed to any VPN service on our supported provider list, we’ll send your router ready to work with your VPN right out of the box, cutting out the annoying VPN-installation process for you.

How to Use HBO Now on Chromecast & Android With a VPN

Use a VPN to stream HBO Now on your Chromecast or Android device.

HBO Now – Available on Chromecast & Android

The cord-cutting revolution continues. Hot on the heels of announcing their own a la carte streaming service for Apple users, HBO Now is already expanding.

HBO Now on Chromecast & Android

That’s right. Apple may have a three-month exclusive on HBO Now, but that exclusive ends this summer. When it does, the premium channel’s cable-package-independent streaming service will be available to those using Google Chromecast and Android devices.

Do we need to run down the litany of amazing HBO shows that come with $14.99 a month service? Let’s do it for fun: The SopranosThe Wire, GirlsDeadwoodSex and the City, Game of ThronesSilicon ValleyVeepTrue Detective and on and on and on. Plus movies and boxing and comedy specials.

Frankly, you can spend almost all your streaming time on HBO Now, and again, no cable package necessary. The day is ours, cord-cutters!

Watch HBO Now on Your Chromecast or Android Through a VPN

We’ve already guided you through the best VPNs and VPN-routers for watching HBO Now, and that list holds true. If you’re looking for the best VPN service providers for maintaining online privacy while watching HBO Now, or if you just want to be able to watch it from outside the country, click on that link at the beginning of this paragraph.

The more important question may be: how exactly do I watch HBO Now on my Chromecast or Android while using my VPN?

While VPNs are not particularly suited for configuration for streaming media devices, it’s still easy enough to enjoy anything you’d want on your streaming device through your VPN. All you have to do is connect to your VPN at the router level, integration limited to open-source firmware, and any activity on your wireless network will be tunneled through the encrypted VPN server of your choice. It’s that simple.

Oh, what the heck. Let’s give you that list of top HBO Now VPNs again:

  1. IPVanish – Keeps adding more & more servers with some of the fastest server speeds worldwide.
  2. ExpressVPN – Top choice for US VPN users in Asia and Australia.
  3. HideMyAss – Top number of servers and IP addresses in US & UK server choices.

And now, to put this finishing touch on your wireless network to ensure the best possible HBO Now streaming experience, add a FlashRouter.

As the video above explains, our DD-WRT and Tomato-flashed routers are versatile, powerful, and VPN-friendly. If you’re subscribed to any VPN on our official supported provider list, your FlashRouter will arrive ready to work with your VPN right out of the box. Or you can hold onto your old router and use your new FlashRouter as a dedicated VPN device. That’s called the dual router setup and it’s a popular FlashRouter feature.

But really, a FlashRouter is just the best way to make sure your streaming experience, whether it be over a VPN or just on your regular local network, is as fluid and flawless as possible. With an extendable wireless range, bandwidth you can control, and a host of other features, FlashRouters make that dream a reality.

Router Hacking News Roundup

FlashRouters collects the latest router hacking news.

Router Hacking News Roundup

One of our primary goals at FlashRouters is to provide our customers with the most secure wireless devices that money can buy. In an age where invasive governments and cybercriminals are only becoming more and more bold, we consider it a sacred duty.

And we’re going to keep on keeping on with that aforementioned goal as a guiding principle, especially considering that there seems to be disturbing news about router hacking every other week. In fact, we’ve collected some of the most recent stories, just to give you an idea of the sort of vulnerabilities that exist out there.

But before we get to that, we insist on reminding you that with the right FlashRouter and the right VPN service provider on your side, you can avoid losing sleep about the security of your banking information, e-mails, and other sensitive online data. In fact, we have a whole best-sellers list full of terrific choices for the more conscientious online denizen.

Anyway, onto the news…

Router Hacking News

Router DNS Attack Brings Pornography and Game Ads to Popular Websites – Let’s start by looking at a router attack that is particularly mischievous. Hackers have figured out a way to confuse routers into sending incorrect DNS results. Many websites use Google Analytics, and this hack basically bypasses Google Analytics and sends faulty code instead, the result of which is pornography and game ads popping up on your screen that seem to originate from popular websites, but are instead coming from a hacked router.

Routers Provided By ISPs Vulnerable to HacksDon’t assume a router provided by your Internet Service Provider is necessarily safe; in fact, more than 700,000 of the ADSL routers ISPs provide are not. A “directory traversal” flaw in a firmware component called webproc.cgi that exists in these routers has a major vulnerability that allows would-be hackers to find your administrative credentials. Suffice to say, at that point, the router and your network are no longer within your control.

Common Hotel Routers Supremely Hackable – We’re going to get deeper into this one in an upcoming post, but the invaluable security firm Cylance has discovered a flaw in routers used by 8 of the 10 biggest hotel chains in the world. In addition to allowing attackers to download malware to your devices, this flaw gives potential attackers access to your data transmissions, and even the hotel’s keycard and reservation system. Sadly, security experts are pretty certain that most hotels will do little to correct this issue.

12 Million Home and Business Routers Vulnerable to Critical Hijacking HackWhile we’re on the subject of routers that are both common and problematic, here’s a bug, humorously dubbed “Misfortune Cookie”, that has shown up in devices from companies like Linksys, D-Link, Edimax, Huawei, TP-Link, ZTE, and ZyXEL. The issue is in the “RomPager” software, and apparently could allow hackers to gain administrative control and mess with the devices memory.

Feds Warn Airlines to Watch Out for Passengers Hacking Jets – And for our final story in this section, we figured we ought to go ahead and scare the daylights out of you. Terrifyingly, the FBI and the TSA have issued a warning to airlines, asking them to be on the lookout for anyone who might be trying to hack an airplane’s wireless network, and thus commandeer, say, the plane’s navigation system. Reassuringly, the FBI and the TSA claim that these threats are merely theoretical, and as of yet, they have no information that suggests a hacker could actually pull this off.

And Now (Because You’ve Earned It) the Lighter Side of Router News

The Star Trek USS Entepreise WiFi Router

The Star Trek Router (photo from Gizmodo)

Some Guys Decked Out Their Router Like The USS Enterprise (And You Can Too) – A couple of enterprising (forgive us) fellas have figured out a fairly basic way to have their router integrated into a model of Star Trek‘s USS Enterprise. It looks pretty damn cool and not all that hard to arrange for yourself. There. Doesn’t that feel a little better after all of the danger and terror documented in the stories above?

HBO Now Streaming Service Launches for Game of Thrones Season 5

HBONow Free Trial - Best HBONow VPN & Routers

HBO Now and Game of Thrones Are Nigh!

Good news for those cord-cutters among you that have thus far been unable to wrangle up someone else’s cable login information in order to get HBO Go (and good news for those of you who love run-on sentences)…

Meet HBO Now

Just in the nick of time, HBO Now is offering an a la carte streaming service that, unlike HBO Go, requires no cable subscription.

Why do we say, “just in the nick of time”? Well, as we assume many of you are aware, Game of Thrones is coming back (on April 12th, to be precise). Surely you’re getting the same invitations to viewing parties as we are.

But that’s not all, Mike Judge’s hilarious Silicon Valley is returning the very same night. Need more incentive? True Detective‘s second season will be gracing our screens on June 21st. So yeah, time is of the essence.

Advantages of HBO Now Streaming Service

So that makes three ways (including Sling TV) you can stream HBO on your Rokus and Apple TVs. Wondering about the more practical details about an HBO Now subscription?

Pros

  • Password sharing is acceptable, but keep it reasonable. Three simultaneous streams are allowed at once and no more.
  • That said, there is no limit to gadget activation, so you can put it on your Roku, tablet, phone, and anything else you’d like, without worry.

Cons

  • There’s no live stream, so while episodes of original programming arrive on HBO Now exactly when they first air on HBO, live events like boxing tend to show up the following morning. That’s really about it for cons.

There’s a free 30 day trial and membership costs $15 a month. A little pricier than Netflix, but this strikes us as a totally fair deal considering all of the movies and terrific original programming (we haven’t even mentioned The WireThe SopranosDeadwood, Last Week with John Oliver, The Jinx, Going Clear (the amazing Scientology documentary etc.) that come with it.

How to Use VPN to Watch HBO Now from Anywhere

Fastest VPN Service Provider Routers - IPVanish

FlashRouter-Ready VPNs

Of course, HBO Now isn’t available all over the world, and we recommend that those without access to it avail themselves of a VPN service for unblocking the streaming services they desire.

Aside from their primary purpose (to protect your sensitive online information from malicious actors like snooping government agencies, hackers, identity thieves, and the like), VPN services (or Virtual Private Network services) are particularly useful when it comes to accessing geographically restricted material.

When you log in to your VPN, all of your online data is tunneled through encrypted servers set up all over the world, and you’re provided with a new IP address based where the servers are based. This means your internet-capable device now believes it’s somewhere else, which is useful if, say, you’re not in the US and you want to access HBO Now.

Just pick a US-based server at login and you can stream HBO Now to your heart’s content. No more fear of missing Game of Thrones, Veep, impending season 2 of True Detective, Silicon Valley

Basically, any VPN provider worth their salt will have a ton of US-based servers, and we have a ton of highly recommended supported VPNs on our supported provider list, but here’s a few quick recommendations:

  1. IPVanish – Keeps adding more & more servers with some of the fastest server speeds worldwide.
  2. PrivateInternetAccess – Best budget VPN service.
  3. HideMyAss – Top number of servers and IP addresses in US & UK server choices.
  4. PureVPN – Budget yearly pricing under $50 + huge server location list.
  5. ExpressVPN –Based in the British Virgin Islands, with servers in 75+ countries across the globe,

Best Routers for HBO Now Streaming & VPN

That’s a pretty brief video up there, but on the off chance you didn’t take the time to watch it, we’ll explain:

A FlashRouter is the cure for sluggish wireless, an absolute dose of adrenaline right when your network needs it. We take already powerful devices and supercharge them by removing their stock firmware and flashing them with DD-WRT & Tomato firmware. These replacement firmwares boost the speed, power, and versatility of the router, allowing the user to take advantage of all manner of special features.

Access advanced security options, increase your wireless range, and manage the allocation of your bandwidth with incredible ease, thanks to a FlashRouter. And while any router on our line is worthy of your attention, here are some prime choices to ensure the highest quality HBO Now streaming experience:

  1. Netgear R7000 AC1900 Nighthawk DD-WRT FlashRouter Our highest powered Netgear router, the Nighthawk has been dominating our best-sellers list since it was introduced last year.
  2. Linksys WRT3200ACM DD-WRT FlashRouter – The 1.8 GHz Dual-Core ARM processor in the WRT3200ACM is also one of the first FlashRouters to use a Marvell chipset.
  3. Netgear R7800 Wireless-AC DD-WRT FlashRouter –  extreme WiFi speed for gaming—up to 2.53 Gbps via 160MHz bandwidth to further reduce lag. The dual-core 1.7GHz processor boosts WiFi, wired & WAN-to-LAN performance,
  4. Asus RT-AC56U Wireless-AC1200 DD-WRT FlashRouter – The ultimate Asus networking centerpiece and a quick favorite around the FlashRouters office. 
  5. Asus RT-N66U N900 Dark Knight Tomato WiFi Router Our most popular Tomato & Wireless-N VPN Router.
