Téma: Help the show from the outside the US!
If you watch the show on fox on demand within the first three days after it has been aired, it actually counts towards the rating, so please follow this GUIDE and watch the newest episode of tscc once it was been released on fox on demand, otherwise the show will most likely get canceled;( And this is how it is done:
Since they started to air the first season of tscc in germany i have become a fan. Like all US shows, except for House, it is kinda flopping. Atleast it does better than Lost and Smallville. Well, i've downloaded most of the episodes from torrent sites and i started to get more information about the actors and the show. As i saw that the show might get canceled, i was kinda shocked. I did wrote one email to Warner Brothers.
I was trying to find a way to watch fox on demand outside from the US to boost the rating. You will need an US IP for that. I stepped into Hotspot Shield, which maybe works on a 32 bit system (didnt worked for me). If it works for you, nice. Just download it here: http://www.hotspotshield.com/ - Install it and connect and see if it works with fox on demand. Since i have a 64 bit system it didn't worked, because of driver errors. I also tested it with my notebook and hotspot shield did not work with fox on demand, but it worked fine with hulu and abc. Nice, but useless.
After searching for another solution i have found this: http://insidethebrackets.blogspot.com/2 ... it-no.html - Basically it creates a VPN connection with an US iphone IP. Takes around 5 minutes to set up and it works just fine. Right now i am watching the current episode. If you want to boost the rating further by watching it again, you have to get another iphone IP and reconnect. I assume fox saves the IP of the viewer and stores them 1:1. For a strange reason i can only watch the show with IE, so if you use firefox and it does not work you might want to try out IE. I've already watched the current episode, just let it stream in the background while you do something else.
If you wish to support the show from outside the US please follow the instructions and watch the show on FOX. I will try and post this on as many fansites i can.
A little side note:
Some people do acutally have trouble with the fox flash player. They passed the IP check but the video won't buffer, load or stream at all. This is because fox uses a special kind of flash player. If you haven't watched a show on fox or abc via their streaming sites, you will not have this addon installed.
If your IP check went fine, you will no longer get the message that you cannot watch the show if you live outside the US, instead you will now get a message that you have to install a new flash player addon. If you don't get this message you can also get the addon here: http://www.movenetworks.com/install-move-player
Once installed, restart your browser and it should work fine with fox on demand.
Have a nice day,
Edit: All links should work now.
