    You'd need to use a vpn / proxy service, so it looks like your ip address is in the US.

    I don't use one but I'm sure someone here can recommend a good one.

    Thanks for the reply. Right after i posted this i saw the thread about 10 down about almost the same thing. I am going to write abc an email and see if they will open up my ip due to being military. I had this problem with hulu and sent an email and not i can stream hulu, thought it was cool that they did that.

    If ABC won't help you, you can follow hideipvpn on twitter or there blog, they give out free US and UK VPN accounts every week. I got on from them this weekend :)

    My father was a Marine. We were stationed in Iwakuni for 6 yrs. I loved it there so I stayed for 10yrs but I've been back in the states since '96. Thinking about going back within the next couple of years. Wouldn't mind spending the rest of my days there.

    If you are looking for VPN provider check out www.strongvpn.com or www.blackvpn.com, both has money back guarantee. I live in Poland, and tomorrow I will try to buy 1 month subscription from blackvpn - I will say if it works for me or not.
