Hi,

You could set up your browser or whatever software you are using to use a proxy server to view the TV stream. A google search like this ( http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=tYh&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-GB%3Aofficial&q=south+africa+web+proxy&btnG=Search&meta=&aq=f&oq= ) will probably find some that you can use.

However, don't do anything other than watch the TV stream when connecting through the proxy server, as it is possible for people to intercept the data that you're sending and receiving and view things like personal info and passwords.

Also, proxy servers are usually quite slow as it requires the server to download the data and then upload it to you and will probably be in use by many other people at the same time, so it may not be fast enough to stream live TV. This will not be helped by the fact that the majority of South Africa has quite poor internet infastructure and as such most proxies based there will probably be slow even by proxy standards.

You could try searching for the show on Youtube or something similar if the above doesn't work.

As above.

Beware, proxies are very slow *snores*
