Hello there,

Because I just moved from Chicago back home in SE Asia, I missed the opportunity to watch tv shows in the US. Even though there are sites such as ABC, NBC, or CBS that allow me to watch the show in its entirely, but it keeps saying that I do not live in the US.

I would like to solution to this problem. As much as I love going back to the US, I won't be able to do it anytime soon. Can anybody help? Does changing my IP address to US IP Address help? If so, how to do it?

Thanks!

If you can get a free vpn with a US IP you would be able to watch those sites. Otherwise Surfthechannel.com is a good resource for links to shows hosted on Megavideo or Vreel

Lot of proxy sites (hide my ass, et al) no longer work. A VPN (virtual private network) will work for sure. A VPN works by creating a Virtual local network. Finding one for free that is safe is the only challenge. Best to make friends w some guys on IRC/other geek spot or have a friend in the US set up a router w VPN capability that you can trust.

Sidereel.com is also a good aggregator of links to free episodes of stuff.
