    Are you using WiFi, or 3G?

    Before tonight, neither were able to use 3G.

    But ABC updated their App today to enable that.

    I think jpmillet's problem is these apps look at the IP address you're coming in from, and if it ain't US, it won't let you download anything. I had this problem using my MacBook running Hulu in Mexico and it just would not let me watch anything. (Tried connecting through a VPN in the states then running it, and that didn't work either.)

    I would really like a solution to this as well, but I don't think I'll get one.

    I've been experiencing this same problem with different websites since 2003 when I joined the Air Force and moved overseas. Italy, Honduras, and now Japan, all the same, content is blocked due to my region. I've had some minor success with proxy servers, but that won't work with iPad. I've even tried getting my military friends to e-mail these sites to tell them it's not fair to military overseas, and they should make some exception, but they won't do it.



    My wife was pretty excited about the ABC app, she likes a few ABC shows, even though she has difficulty understanding them (she's Japanese and her English is only ok). Too bad.

    Same issue over here in Europe. They (abc and others) track the ip address. Basically it's for copyright reasons and because they have agreement with foreign tv channels, which block this.

    I tried spoof location from Cydia, but had no success.
    Most likely written on my iPad

    I succeeded by using a us based VPN provider. It definitely worked

    How you did it? You have to pay for the VPN provider? And do you know if this works on Mexico too?

    OK, so...
    1. What is the name of the provider?
    2. What does it cost?
    3. Where (geographically) did you use it that it worked?
    4. What were you using it for (ABC app or Hulu or what)?

    I'm going to be traveling all over the world for a year, so getting this pinned down is a very big deal (not to mention for the military who are constantly moving as well). Thanks!
