Streaming in Canada

I have had great success in the past using a free program called Hotspot Shield to fool the sites that are blocked by using an American i.p. address. I tested it out on Livestream just now and it appears to work. Without it turned on the site is blocked and with it enabled I don't get the blockd message. I've used it for years on Allisports to watch the mysteriously banned 2nd motos. It definitely works but make sure you flush out your internet cache then reboot.Before opening your browser enable it and then simply go to the Livestream and enjoy. What I'm getting at is if you have been surfing and then deside to enable Hotspot without doing what I suggest it will still have your old Canadian i.p. in use. It is free with some advertising so I bought it for a year for 29 bucks. It has definitely been worth it for me.

After installing Hotspot Shield and setting my virtual location to "United States", it still says:

This Event is not available in your location
The owner of this event has chosen to block your location.If you think there has been an issue,please contact the event owner.


I cleared my browser history since the beginning of time in Chrome and restarted before trying. Oh well!

Any other Canuck-ians have success with this method?
Soooo pleased with the current TV Programming and channel selection in Canada now, jeez.
Although I hate to admit it, I would pay for a good reliable feed that is not pirated, full of bs adds, just the whole night Live...
Shaw seems like the only way (for now), but seriously. no friggin Canadian feeds?
Saturday night has been Family SX nights in our household for almost 20 years now, but not a lot of options...

So livestream does the main events?

Like I said in another thread...

If you install the Hola Better extension in Chrome, you can change your location (to the UK for example...) wink

The livestream is blocked in the US too. You have to come from a European address to be able to watch it.

I did all that and it let me in but the stream stopped during practice. So my confusion is, does the stream come back again for the main event or do they only show practice? Also, is sx.officialsatellitetv.com/ a legit site? I don't mind paying for a more premium service but I'll never pay for traditional TV again...

Wow, screwed it up. If you put your default country as the United kingdom it should work. I just tested the international connection and it worked as far as I can tell. The video played fine.

Don't know if livestream will be back for the main. But the main is 1:45 hours from now (8PM mountain time), so I'm not panicking yet.

I have had mixed success. The first couple of attempts I got in then after I kept getting denied. I switched the location from the U.S. to the U.K. and I got in again. I have used Hotspot for years now and it has always worked. I ended up buying it because of our stupid copyright laws. It works with Pandora also.

edit: The UK seams to work but I think you have to buy Hotspot to be able to choose the country.

I have both(hotspot and hola)
Hotspot doesnt work.. Hola instead let me enter the UK streaming page. It should work come race time.

|

No need to pay with Hola Better (link in my previous post)

With that said, I don't know much about that extension (besides the fact that it worked for practice for me)
As with any extension I'm a bit cautious until I understand how it works. (Does it only works for a specific page when you click on its icon and select a country, or does it reroute all of your internet traffic, steal your passwords, beat up your dog, sleep with your wife.., that sort of things)

I've never been on Livestream so I'm not certain but I believe this is working with Hotspot with your country as the U.K. as you can see from my screen.

I still can't believe that I can't simply turn on my TV and watch this...

|

1/3/2015 6:12 PM

Did anyone else have to login after changing location?

|

1/3/2015 6:28 PM

I'm going with the HOLA extension for chrome, for some reason from my country (Belgium) it was not accesible but changing to UK / Germany worked .. not sure why it would work from there and not in my country but whatever i just wanna see some live SX !!!!!!!

Here, but make sure you use Hola to change your location to the UK or else it wont let you watch it. Hurry tho because you got like 9 minutes.

Thanks for the "Hola" heads up fellas! Took me a couple tries but is working now. Not great quality (certainly not HD) but it is better than the free stream elsewhere.

p.s. I love these sports internet streams b/c most of the time there are no commercials with any of them. Wondorous!
