Accessing Blocked Internet Radio Stations
I'm not sure that I am posting this to the correct forum, so my apology if I haven't.

I want to access some Internet Radio Stations (specifically live sports broadcasts) that are blocked to users with IP addresses in countries other than the one from which the broadcast is being made.

I have found numerous websites that suggest there are ways of masking an IP address or using proxy websites to achieve this and some involve downloading and installing programs whilst others don't. Some options are free whilst others are not.

I have read one article that refers to 'toggling' from 'direct connection' to 'manual proxy.'

All of this is just gobblygook to me so I am hoping that some kind soul might explain what my options are in very simple non technical terms as well as the pros and cons of each of the options.

Many thanks.

The con is that it is illegal.
