Proxy Servers to make it appear you are in a different country
Has anyone used a proxy server to make it appear that you are in another country? Being based in Canada seems to lock us out of online content - for example My Name is Earl has some of their shows online but when you try to watch them it says "Not Availabe in your country" or something like that.
What do you have to do to make it appear that you are in the US (or some other country) - I believe a proxy server is required, is it not? If so then how do you do this?
Another example of coverage blocked to Canadians is the Masters coverage - some, but not all, of this content is available via tsn.ca.
