If you want to watch ABC streaming TV episodes even if you don’t live in the US or see the Football Worldcup in the BBC Sport site, even if you don’t live in the UK - the next few steps will help you mask your IP by changing your default proxy to the correct country.

We always knew it was possible, but not that it’s this simple! This can probably help people who want to use different softwares and services online that are usually restricted to the locals and not only for just viewing the above online TV. This little IP and proxy tweak also makes your surfing much more secure and anonymous.

1. In IE -> Choose Tools -> Choose Internet Options -> Go to Connections (tab) -> Press LAN Settings (button) -> mark the “Use a proxy server for your LAN…” -> In the IP Address field, enter the IP (use for US services, for UK services) -> In the Port field, enter the port (US – 8080, UK – 80) -> Press OK (button) -> Press OK again (button).

2. For more IPs (proxy servers) from different countries, you can check out this site.

3. If you’re having any problems, read the original, very detailed post here.

      I followed your instructions as well as I could
      but afterwards I couldn’t access the web!
      Either I made a stupid mistake or somebody else
      I tried: + port 80 and + port 8080
      I tried both IExplorer and Firefox.
      I’m using WindowsXP Pro.
      Please help me if you can, I need a proxy now.
      About one year ago, I used proxies without
