    You need a VPN provider that gives you a US ip address.
    On your iPhone/iPad add either a L2TP or a PPTP tunnel.
    You can read on Apple site how to do the actual config.

    Such a tunnel will give you an ip on the US server/network the tunnel connects to. When browsing the web you will access the Internet through that tunnel and the site you are browsing will see you as being in the US as it can only see your ip.

    Hulu,ABC and all the others does then work.

    Now to the tricky part.
    To get this to work well and to be able to stream media you need this tunnel to be of good quality. Now there are free services you can find or cheap ones. Those may or may not work. To make sure you get a good connection with enough bandwidth for your needs you often have to pay for it.

    Just Google for: US VPN Hulu ABC
    That should give you a few to chose from :)

    Good luck! And yes it works on regular computers too.

    out-of-country solved

    Ok folks, here is the solution. It will cost you a bit, but it works seamless.

    You will need a VPN tunnel to the US to have abc-player, Netflix, Pandora working.

    Free of charge VPN tunnels like HotspotShield seems to work on Mac or PC quiet well, but I couldn't get it to work with the iPhone/iPad. I always got a "server not available" message from the VPN client.

    Then there is FreeVPN, same issues.

    I finally got on a pay VPN service in the US, which works like a dream.

    If you only want to have US-services used (like abc, Pandora, Netflix), then it's $55/year. If you want BBC iPlayer (later this year), or other media from other countries outside the US, then it's $70/year for the US services plus $2/month per extra country. I got so excited about the thing, that I actually joined the referral program. So if you want to try this too, then send me your email-adress and I get you an invite. They also offer a full 7 day money return policy, if you are not satisfied.

    Here is the "proof" ;)
