    I found this Discovery Canada show called Doctor*ology(http://www.discoverychannel.ca/content/?pid=234) and it sounds good for a medical club I am VP of. Except when I click Watch in Broadband on their website, I can't watch it because I'm not in Canada.

    Is there ANY way that I could get access to this? because it's more realistic and humorous than other shows I've found like House or Grey's Anatomy,

    While I don't know any work arounds I do know how you feel, as Showtime USA does the same thing to block out non-US visitors. Personally I think it's a pretty shady thing to do, yes it's probably for copyright reasons, but come on lawyers, loosen the tie a bit and wrap your head around this internet thing.

    So there are good things about being Canadian?






    (Joking. I am Canadian, mind you)

    of course! the semi-legal pot and the gay marriages! We're destroying the family unit with our freedom and loving every minute of it ;)

    Use a canadian proxy. You'll have to google and find one but it will do the trick, I think.

    For the same reason we Canadians can't view/buy ITMS video content for the US -- it is not licensed for display / distribution in the other country.

    Thems the breaks. The publisher doesn't want it to be (or is legally prevented from allowing it to be) distributed outside a specific area. Why do people persist in looking for workarounds to get what has been specifically told they don't have a right to?

    (Besides, the frackin' thing requires ActiveX to play in FireFox Win so I'm not doing that)
