I can’t watch Big Brother Canada in the United States.

It is the internet. Regional restrictions piss off pretty much everyone.

Whatever the reasoning someone has is, it’s bad reasoning. Probably some nasty-minded greed/hoading-proprietary-oriented reason. “US taxpayers paid for this so no one in other nations are allowed to view it!” – which is utterly backward and foolish.

Moreover, Internet web browsers should not reveal where the browsing computer is, at all, and requests for location should be met with whatever-the-blank-will-get-you-to-show-the-stupid-content.

Where’s is the net neutrality? Everyone talks about it but no one gives a damn.

@RedDeerGuy1 I would expect TunnelBear would work, yes.

@imrainmaker Who’s this “everyone” you speak of? The non-corporate non-bought-politicians who also know what the heck they’re talking about seem to care. Why would any informed non-tool be against net neutrality?

@Zaku – I’m talking about content providers. Till the time they start showing the same content across the world without restrictions no use of talking about it. There should be laws to enforce that which I’m not sure exists right now.
