    You basically can't. Your ISP does not "add" this information to the packets sent to the host or "broadcast" it. The sites use your IP address to roughly work out where you are. Unless you manage to spoof your IP and still get the data back you are not going to get this to work.

    You'll need to connect throught a proxy server. Select one from a country where they will let the users watch those videos.
