  • Watch American TV from abroad

    If you like to watch American TV shows when you are abroad from sites like Hulu.com, but get that annoying error message that states you cannot because you are not inside of the good old U.S. Of A., then here's the solution:

    No need to thank me.

    Just name your first born after me.

      Say it backwards, and I will return to my home dimension.

        What't the crack with these "watch video" sites that ask you to download their viewer? Kosher or not?

          if you need to watch USA tv... just come to the UK. Be warned there are less adverts so you need to increase your attention span...

            Need more info in order to provide assessment.

            Which are you referring to?

            But by and large, avoid sites which will not play in a commercially recognized player.
            Generally since Media Player pretty much is the standard, I'd say if it don't play in that, forget it.

            (Which reminds me, the bizarre player required on the KW videos will not be gracing my system, ever.)

              Watching American T.V. in GB is akin to visiting to German Gasthouse and ordering a Coors.

                Unfortunately some of our forumers may have the surname 'Sucker'. If this be the case please do NOT name your first born after him.

                  One time I watched an old episode of Family Matters when I was visiting Germany (the episode was dubbed in German). It was one of the biggest, most shameless wastes of time in my life.

                      Anything has to be better than Doctor fucking Who.

                      ...Except Little House on the Prairie. Possibly.

                      Hulu still loads v. slowly as its an American service, but it works well and Hotspot Shield is the least-awkward program for it. Adverts are built in, but only two or three (v.reasonable for a hi-def, streaming TV service).

                        I couldn't get it to work, and now the program that had to be installed is messing up my pc, it blocks off some off my pages. If anyone has an idea of how to remove a program called Hotspot Shield I'll appreciate it. I've had a look around google for a solution and it doesn't seems that straightforward.

                          I would LOVE that! One can only watch so many Viagra/Cialis commercials before we get ED from just watching the damned things....
