One generally can't watch US TV videos from Russian IPs (including this video). What's everybody's favorite (free preferably) proxy that supports playing videos?

Robert, I'm in Canada and I've got the same problem - "The video is not available in your geographic area"..

The same here. They block them on purpose! Just like some American dating sites block access to Russia. Free speech, yes, right. Hypocritical b-rds! Not better than China in many ways.

Not more than from any other country. Russia and Ukraine just happen to have an enormous supply of top-quality women, only Asian countries can compete, really. And there are more scams where there is more activity, obviously.
Besides, it doesn't stop the scam from happening. I know a multi-million Russian dating business which is a total scam, not just some separate girls, it has been operating and scamming for years. Even Google doesn't seem to care, only Yandex put them under its filters.

And CBS put it them self, so the plan in blocking from Russia, and other places too, is a bit strange, but the USA is more clever than any body else so why worry about things like this?

I don't think it is "the USA" doing any blocking.

I think it is a tv broadcasters in the hulu.com group. They do this because there is no $advertising$ benefit from going overseas.
