Not sure it this is the correct place to post, but here goes:

Does anybody have a way to bypass the YouTube region checking for the Olympic Channel?
It you check this link, we are one of the few countries in the world that can not use the YouTube channel.
Not sure how Monochoice and the SABC got this blocked, but there must be a (easy) way to get around it.
Both my and my wife's parents want to use the channel but are stuck at the region checking.

Any help would really be appreciated :D

It'll use geographic IP location, so that won't work.
You'll need a VPN or proxy in an allowed country.

Be careful of open proxy's, download another browser and setup the proxy in there and only watch the Olympic channel. Do not do your normal surfing banking etc though the open proxy.....

Interesting google sends me to google.co.uk... Wonder if that means my ip is uk-ish?

Well that sucks - and the link they say we should go to has nothing to do with Olympics.

I know Tor is slow but could that not be an option? I mean, does it not spoof your ip address? Just a thought.
