Question

Accessing US media sites from other countries?

So, I'd like to watch the steraming services on US media sites - say CBS or Comedy Central - but they only allow access from inside the US.

Anyone have any tips for how to get around this?

Thanks in advance,

Tom Leventhall

Google Chrome has this extension called ZenMate which lets you change your ip address to the country of your choice - perhaps try that out. I have used it for websites that are not allowed in Canada Silly
