Hi everyone. I live in The Bahamas and I want to watch a game on ESPN 3. It's not available here because of my internet provider. If I change my IP address will I be able to and if so how can I change it?

Thanks,
Ricky

Not likely. I'm guessing that ESPN3 blocks individuals from outside of the United States and any IP assigned to you by your ISP will always be associated with a Bahamas ISP.

EDIT: Looks like I was correct (or at least partially). As per their site:
Quote:
ESPN3.com is available at no charge to fans who receive their high-speed internet connection from an ESPN3.com affiliated internet service provider. ESPN3.com is also available to fans that access the internet from U.S. college campuses and U.S. military bases.
