How to watch videos blocked in your country?

The problem is, that you connect to the internet in some country - and want to watch a video or a stream from an other country, but you get a "This video is only available in... " message. But you need to see the content immediately, so travel is not an option. Even if you'd pay for the content, you cannot have immediate access

VPN or Tor

There are two solutions for this problem. In both cases you have to find a computer in the actual country where the content is not blocked:

VPN services like Hola, which is also embeddable in a browser too, do exactly that: you connect to a server, which then lets you use a network in th preferred region
If there is no (free) VPN service, then you might use Tor: which uses an network of nodes from around the world to forward your requests and your answers t a given destination. You also can choose an exit-node to be in a given country. So basically that node watches the video for you, and forwards you the content immediately. As a side effect, Tor also hides your identity.
