Default ABCFamily problem

Hello.

When I visit http://www.abcfamily.com, and click "Lincoln Heights", "Full Episodes", then click an episode, it tells me on the episode playback screen that people outside the US cannot watch it. I tried Tor, but it didn't work, I tried some other anonymizer websites, could someone please tell me how I can fool ABCFamily.com into thinking that i'm surfing from the US?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

That's probally your only option. Kinda strange how they only allow US people to watch... Thats just a little bit of discrimination, don't ya think?

Smile Re: ABCFamily problem

Could you recommend a US proxy then?

Yes, I don't think that they should prevent people in other countries from accessing it.

That doesn't work, it still says that people outside the US can't watch it.

Its something to do with licencing. Bypassing that, is against the law.
Its like, here in the UK, we can't steam music and music videos from some sites, like MTV.com, etc.
