There are some wonderful media sites available in the US at the moment although there are some problems for many people who want to access them online. Many of them are now only available to cable subscribers and you need your subscription information to be able to use the site. However some are still available and one of the best sites is the AMC channel from AMC Networks.
Not only does the AMC site not require any login or subscriptions, it also carries some of the best TV shows from the last few years, including my all time favorite Zombie drama – The Walking Dead.
However there is one small issue for some people trying to watch the AMC site and that’s the fact that it is only accessible if you’re located in the USA. When you try and access any of the media files on the site, your IP address is checked to determine your location, if the address is outside the US then you can’t watch any of the shows at all.
Fortunately there is a solution and it’s quite a simple one – you just need to use a Fast USA proxy to hide your real location like this.
This works by relaying your internet connection through a proxy server based in the USA. Therefore when you connect to the AMC site, it will see the proxy address and not your real IP address. The video demonstrates how to use a software program called Identity Cloaker to route your connection through the US server.
It is important to use a fast server though as speed is crucial to being able to watch any media files online. Remember that the video stream has to be relayed through the proxy itself so if that server and it’s throughput is not very fast then you will experience high levels of latency and buffering if you try and watch video.
