Default How to watch WSBK races from the WSBK website and get around the Speed Channel block.

Got this info from another forum and figured I'd share it with you guys (and girls).


1. Got to this website Proxy List 1 - Proxy 4 Free - Protect Your Online Privacy!

2. Pick a IP address from a country that you don't think gets wsbk coverage (e.i. vietnam,)

3. Open up Internet Explorer. Click tools--internet options.

4. From the connections tab click on the Lan Setting Button

5. Check the box that says "Use Proxy Server for Lan"

6. Enter the IP address from the website and the port and click OK.


This will re-route your connection through a proxy server in another country. The WSBK website will "think" that you are in that country and allow you access to all the videos.

edit:
When you're done watching don't forget to uncheck "use proxy server for lan," Otherwise you will always be routed to the proxy server.



If the first IP you pick doesn't work, try another one. I was able to watch superpole, all the races, and all the interviews.

Sweet, I tried setting up a proxy in in FF using foxyproxy but couldn't find a proxy that would work. Do you remember the proxy that worked for you?

On FF go to tools--options. Then click advanced and go to the network tab. Click settings and check "manual proxy config." Enter the Proxy info and port, and it should work.

Awsome just watched race 2. Does this also work for live races or is it always a rerun on SBK.com?
