    Hello guys,

    So I'm Dutch but living in London. I would like to watch a Dutch television program, but I can only watch it in Holland. So my question, can I change my country setting to make the website believe I'm in Holland and therefore access the program? And of course change it back after I finished watching it. And will it affect anything on the laptop, apart from the country settings?

    Please, let me know.

    Thank you in advance!

    The Mac OS X settings about your location or language or time have nothing to do with you not being able to watch or not watch Dutch TV. As you reside in the UK, you also use an ISP (Internet Service Provider) that is located in the UK, thus you get an UK IP (Internet Protocol) address, witch the Dutch TV website sees as you not being from the Netherlands. Therefore you need to look into proxy servers located in the Netherlands to use them for watching Dutch TV.
