You can't. You'll have to wait until both sites are officially available in that area, and that can take years. Besides, the content will then likely be different as usually content is adapted to the country or area you are watching from.

One way you could use though is not to use a local ISP for the internet connection, but rather a direct satellite connection.

Probably not, as streaming usually either isn't supported that way, and if it is, it would be too slow, since you need a good bandwidth.

You'd just need to VPN to a PC located in the US. So first you would have to get someone to setup VPN on a PC or VPN capable router there to which you could connect to. But I still doubt you'd have enough bandwidth. For VPN to work fast you need really fast upload speeds at both ends, most ISP's give you fast download speeds while the upload speed is a fraction of that, and the VPN further reduces this.

Besides that you would probably be breaching some laws in the UAE, one reason why hulu and similar services can't be received in many countries have legal reasons.

You could try connecting to a US proxy server but that would be on your PC not the apple device. Your network would have to be hard wired for VPN to a US network for this to work. That could get a little pricy for a VPN router.

A proxy doesn't work for this type of content.
