Watching shows on country restricted websites

Hello

I live in Canada and would like to know if it is possible to change my IP Address so I can watch or listen to Live football on the BBC Website or watch episode of Lost on ABC.  They have country restrictions.   Any Ideas???

Thanks

USA Site works using

http://www.aliveproxy.com/us-proxy-list/

OK - I can get the USA Site to work but I am having problems with the UK Site.  If I try any of the proxy settings from the uk ie 158.43.240.11:3128  the internet connections stops working and get the following error

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.google.com/ 

The following error was encountered:

Access Denied.
Access control configuration prevents your request from being allowed at this time. Please contact your service provider if you feel this is incorrect

Any ideas on how to get this working

This uk porxy site may not be open for public use.

Have you tried any other uk public proxies apart from this one.

No I have not.  Do you have any?  It's really just the BBC Website so I can watch Live Football.

Hello

I would like to be able to view live football on the BBC Website.  The website is set to uk viewers only when showing Live Football.  Does anyone know how to view the BBC Website from outside the UK.

Set this as proxy in your web browser.

webcache.blueyonder.co.uk & port 8080

this is a UK Proxy server.

www.ukwebproxy.com is another site where you can find many of the UK proxy servers.
