Make US websites think your in the US? Answered

I have a problem, im in South Korea but i would like to watch King of the Hill on Fox.com. Fox says i cant because im not located in the US. Other cartoon sites say the same thing. Is there a way i can change my computer settings so i can watch my favorite American Cartoons?

You can try routing through an American proxy, but the connection speed will be MUCH slower..... another way is to download (if it's tv cartoons?) them from the BitTorrent network.....

For bittorrent, try using encryption (under Speed Guide in uTorrent) ...
