Here There and Everywhere

Episodes Online

While in the US, my sister informed me that I could go different places and watch episodes of TV shows I like any time I like. Pretty cool. I didn’t have the time while I was back there, but today I wanted to catch up on one show, and this is the message I got:

Only viewers with the United States can watch these full-length episodes.

I believe that is true, and I also believe that . . . there are probably ways around it. So how do I get around it?

  4. The site recognizes your IP address and notes that it comes from outside the US. So … you’ll have to either mask your IP address so it appears that you are inside the US, download the episodes from iTunes or a less legal source 🙂 or … I don’t know what the third option is :D.

  5. Hmmm. All good information. I am not sure I care enough to do the torrent thing or even iTunes. 😦 It seems so time consuming for something relatively fluffy! Think I’ll just go read a good book.

  7. I have had the same problem when trying to view Lost. I think the reason for this is that if people outside the U.S. are allowed to see the episodes, there were be no incentive for foreign TV to PURCHASE the episodes (such as MBC4 does) to show overseas. If you get MBC4 a lot of current shows are shown on it.

  8. Thanks, Ananyah!

    Thanks, Eileen!

    Some of the things I like watching I think I will just buy when they come out, watch the whole series and then give away.
