    I know being overseas lets me fall behind on tv shows, but I can't even get to watch anything from the major networks websites. I get the message that it's for US only. I was wondering if there was anything I can do to help get an US ip address so I can watch some shows and maybe even get to download some stuff on xbox live. Gears of war is banned where I am at so getting the online stuff is impossible.

    Theres a few things you can do, mostly proxy or VPN stuff try http://hotspotshield.com/ for an easy solution though I'm not sure what the performance will be like. I know it says stuff about security etc but thats for marketing reasons, it'll get you a US IP address.

    For Xbox stuff you'd probably have to do something similar but at a router level, which might not be possible depending on the local network setup.

    If you're on some kind of local base network with a range or domain specifically assigned to the military try contacting the local sysadmin and see if he can get it allowed or do something for you.

    I'm ignorant of such things but I'd of thought the military would have been more sensitive to things like this, preventing culture shock and building moral etc.
