The problem with most publicly available proxy servers is that they are also blocked by web sites that deliver media such as TV shows. As for the other solutions, I can't comment first hand but, if they use a well known proxy server, they may be blocked as well.

The problem with softwares that hide your IP, is that they slow down your system, and you find that pages are taking forever to load.

Using a proxy will not work to view IP specific related content in the U.S.
I've tried it a few times and it didn't work.
I think you're better off using youtube or dailymotion or some other site known for posting videos.

Instead of software, Im looking for a private proxie server. I server i can input into my IE broswer. I dont mind paying a little for speed. The problem with the free ones are speed as well as I can never use my favourites list.

Anyone know of a good private proxy server service?

well, finding a good proxy takes time.

you can search for proxy4free, samair, or proxy-list on google and those 3 sites have tons of proxies.

the next thing is you need to find a proxy that will not be detected as a proxy (high anonymous) so the site can't tell that your IP has been forwarded.

you can search for a proxy judge on google that will tell you what level of anonymity and whether it can detect a proxy (5 i believe being the highest)

ive used proxies to view content that was not allowed to be viewed by the filters in the UAE, but it takes time to find a good, fast proxy.......

Question Watch TV episodes from U.S. sites?

Which program etc will allow me to connect to ABC.com etc to watch full episodes of their programs?

I tried Hotspot Shield which worked a long time ago but now it doesn't seem to work with ABC etc.

Thanks for any tips or suggestions.

It's the studios that are restricting distribution. They aren't anyone's friend.
