Had a mail from a buddy saying Chrome lets him get around the region lock-outs and he can watch the racing live on www.worldsbk.com ... anyone else confirm? How about the BBC coverage that only the poms can get?

Good tip then Doug? :laugh
Occasionally, if I'm very lucky, I can catch a MotoGP race on pay TV, in between all the baseball, sumo, pro-wrestling and people talking about sports rather than showing them :rolleyes

Wonder how's that working technically. I wouldn't like a Google Proxy :rolleyes

Region restriction is usually based on IP address, at least I thought reading something like that about the streams of worldsbk.com
If Google chrome can work around such region restriction, this means it uses a transparent proxy in a region to work around this. Maybe that is nice to watch worldsbk.com videos. But not so nice is that this transparent proxy can see ALL your internet traffic passing through.

Or they use another mechanism??
