Hello.

I would like to see a sports video stream that is not allowed to see in my country. Is there a way to enter the  web site like if I were located in another allowed country but that is not where I'm actually located?

If is it possible, what would I need to do it?

Kind regards.

it could be possible to utilize an anonymous proxy service, if you can find access to one in your country that is allowed.  Some examples of a proxy service would be.  Please note, I do not vouch for any of these particular services, just pointing them out.

Also note that the use of an anonymous proxy service may in and of itself violate laws where you reside, so please use judgment and caution if/when you choose to use something like this.

I have tryed many of these links but still can´t see the video. I´m located in Mexico.

The page I´m trying to watch is:

http://www.usopen.com/en_US/index.html

the video I want to see is: "Highlights from Playoff Round"

When I select the link a new popup window appears but the browser can´t load the FLASH PLAYER video. No message is shown. If I don´t use one of this proxy web sites I get the message "This stream is not available in your area".

Maybe is for the flash player. I have it installed but something between the proxy site and flash player?

Thank you.
