Would appreciate some help with getting the best IP address hiding site ( ie Hidemyass etc ) for Mac.

I am not a great one when it comes to being tech savy, so please bear with me.

Which would be the best site? Best web browser? currently using Firefox. And how do I go through the process?
ie what do I need to down load etc to make it work, and how?

I am wanting to watch SBS cycling central vier their web site, and their other cycling videos, they do not allow viewing from New Zealand despite being able to get the web site, and the annoying message, content currently unavailable, repeats every time I click on a clip.

Appreciate the help.

Thank you for your help.

Question, once you have tried the server for the free period ( having added the DNS numbers they asked to add ) does your computer automatically re-set the DNS number that was in the Network set up?

Nope. You will need to flick it back to automatic.

You will no when it's finished because you get redirected back to unblock us all the time.

If unblockus doesnt work Unotelly is another DNS service that is a bit more regional for specific services.

If they don't work you can always get a VPN, which means your network connection really does come from the US, or whichever country you choose. I'm happy with Astrill.

You can bypass country block by using a VPN or Tor. If you're not tech savy, the simplest solution for you is to use a VPN. Hidemyass is the probably the most popular VPN but it has privacy issue ( Private Internet Access has very good reputations and it doesn't keep any logs. Both Hidemyass and Private internet access will charge you a monthly fee for their services (about $6/mo). There are also free VPN services like VPNgate, but they are usually a bit slow. To set up vpngate on your Mac, you can download and install tunnelblick. I hope this helps to solve your streaming problem.
