Geographical Association - home How to Watch Blocked Internet Videos « Broken Secrets September 27, 2010 at 5:00 am Chad Upton By Chad Upton | Editor The internet is a great place to catch TV shows and clips that you or your PVR missed. Unfortunately, a lot of websites only allow their video content to be viewed in their service area. That’s right, it’s expensive to stream video over the internet to thousands or hundreds of thousands of people in a reliable way. Secondly, they may not be allowed to broadcast outside of their broadcast area. There are also legal agreements with members of various guilds and unions that may prevent content from being distributed in certain areas or for a finite time after the original air date. Broadcasters can identify which country you’re in when you access their website. Although there may be legal and ethical issues with it, there are ways to circumvent some of the methods that are used, potentially allowing you to view content from outside their intended region of distribution. cbs.comcwtv.com (the CW)hulu.comsho.com (showtime)tnt.tv
