Are there anyways for us Canadian to access US content when we get our iPads? I know it can be done via a proxy from a Mac or PC but what about using Wifi?

I ‘m looking at some of those apps like the ABC, Netflix, HULU which look awesome and I know we will not be able to benefit.

If you ask me, given the fact that this thing is built to consume media, the Canadian experience with the iPad will be shortchanged.

I just hope Apple gives us a reasonable price considering the Canadian dollar almost hit parity with the greenback today. All indications are that our dollar will stay around parity or above through the summer.

Angry

Us Canadians just aren't good enough at getting angry for the complaints to make a difference.

Canadians are so used to getting shortchanged that most people I talk to don't even realize that Canada has terrrible internet speeds, bandwidth caps, cell phone plans, cable/satellite packages. When I tell people you can buy unlimited mobile internet access in the U.S. for $30, their jaws just drop. $30 dollars gets you a gigabyte if you're lucky round these parts.

Make a US iTunes account. It's how I'm on the iPad now.
Sure you can access apps from the US App store but can you consume US content on your iPad that way?

Say you get the ABC app, will you be able to watch (my favorite show) Lost?
I don't think so.

Maybe i'm wrong.

You're right. I just tried it and there isn't any way to do that. But on your computer you can't do that either so it's not something that we aren't used to.
