Unable to access online radio station, what can I do?

Up until recently I have been connecting to an online radio station. Recently I tried connecting again but I get the message:

"We are sorry but due to licensing restrictions we are not able to allow access to the content you are requesting outside of the United States."


I am in the UK, but why has this suddenly happened? How does the station know I am in the UK and how can I change things so that I can connect again to the station I want?

Your computer passes through routers on the way to any destination.
'Border' routers can identify the geographic location that sits between connections.

You can try to connect with the home page of the station you're trying to reach and see if they have any advice for you.

When it comes to 'licensing' issues, I don't think anyone here will give you specifics on how to by-pass the rules.

Hi,

I ran through the same problem, and I'm based in France. It happened one morning, and nothing to do about it. It indeed looks like they enforced stronger licensing restrictions. Too bad, I loved my country radios too...

As regards to bypassing the rules....well,... sorry but I'll have to agree with younghv, not the rite place to search.

Fellas, lemme tell ya - I was in Nashville last week - and if you ever get a chance, go there.
It seems as though every bar in town has a guy/gal/group sitting in a corner playing BOTH kinds of music (Country AND Western).

Bar-B-Que Ribs, cold beer, and great music (and fine looking wimmen).

I'm going back next month.

This suddenly happened because the people running the station are tools.
You should find a proxy located in the United States and connect through it.

You'll probably want to put the address and port of the proxy you chose into the 'Network Connections' or whatnot of your radio-music player. For example, in Windows Media Player, you'll want to go to Tools -> Options -> Network and enter the information into the places labeled 'proxy servers'.
