    Sorry if this is in the wrong section!

    Basically, I want to watch South Park episodes full quality and legally through the official site, but it says its not available in the UK yet! Anyone know how to get that site to think I am in the US so I can watch South Park?

    As a side note, I think its disgraceful that you have to be in a certain country to see some internet content. I mean, its the internet! Its meant to be worldwide!!! Freely available content for the world! What is happening to the internet lately?

    If you're talking about iTunes, it's not up to Apple. Complain to your respective governmental agency/ministry.

    Have you tried going to comedycentral.com? Every episode is available to watch for free, just no downloading for later viewing. If you are talking about the Comedy Central site, then see my first statement. The (commercial) internet is not freely available, contrary to what you might think, and it's always been that way.

    I click South Park on the Comedy Central site and it just takes me to South Park Studios, which is the site I was trying to make work in the first place!

    I tried using some US proxies with no luck! :mad:

    We're in the same boat with the BBC iPlayer...

    Got it to work! Used a US based proxy!

    tdevers, if you use a UK based proxy, you can use the iPlayer!

    My bad, I meant southparkstudios, but had a senior moment. Glad to see you found a resolution.

    Its ok, I also found that the UK MTV site has some South Park, too, without needing proxies!

    Thanks to all who helped... Well, I think it was just you really... Whatever :rolleyes:
