I am trying to watch golf on the BBC website, it starts on Thursday, and it won't let me watch it because I am from a United States IP address. I downladed FoxyProxy and am wanted to use a UK IP address to access the bbc live tv feed.

I downloaded foxyproxy and can't figure out how to get it to work. Anyone have any idea of what I need to do?

I use sites like hidemyass if i wanna watch things on youtube that my ip, which is norwegian, doesnt allow.

just type in "sites like hidemyass" in google and you should find one.
It is pretty self explanatory.

your problem is that it's really hard to find proxies in civilized countries like UK and USA. they are almost always in weird, random ****holes. that's why you're never going to find one, especially since you don't really know what you're doing. that's why i said give up, i'm not being mean, i'm really trying to save you some time.
