The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
Want to watch Who Do You Think You Are in another country? Perhaps you live in the U.S. and would like to see the U.K. version or vice-versa. Then again, perhaps you are in Canada or Australia or New Zealand or some other country and would like to view both the U.S. and U.K. versions. The online videos typically do not allow anyone outside of their home countries to view the programs online. In theory, only computer users in the U.K. can watch the U.K. version of Who Do You Think You Are? while only users in the U.S. can watch the U.S. version. With a bit of software installed in your computer, you can "fool" the video web servers into thinking you are located in their home country. Once set up and configured, you can watch those foreign videos from your own home.
Of course, this is not restricted only to Who Do You Think You Are? It should work for any television program that is digitized and made available over the Internet, including football games, auto races, news broadcasts, soap operas, and more.
I wrote a Plus Edition article in May (at http://goo.gl/LKysj) that describes the method I use to watch the television programs available on foreign web sites. That method has worked well for me. Now another web site has described what looks like an easier and slightly cheaper method.
