I live overseas and have a couple Apple TVs. i want to know how to get the most out of them. I download my shows and stream them. so that works out.

I am about to buy an IP converter so i can get an US IP address so i can start to stream netflix.

I want to use it to watch HBO and i am a huge sports fan so i want ESPN. any help. thanks

You need a paid VPN service or something like UnBlockUS. They start around $5 a month but they can get blacklisted by Netflix and such.

While this is relatively easy to do on a PC, how are you going to build a VPN connection with an ATV? OK I guess if u have a jailbroken one.

with unblockus you just need to change your dns, simple and easy

Looks like this is a violation of US law now:
Changing IP address to access public website ruled violation of US law (http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/08/changing-ip-address-to-access-public-website-ruled-violation-of-us-law/)

This could be very bad. Thanks for the link.
