    I'm living here in bham, al and I'm trying to stream the Alabama game from espn3 as opposed to paying the overpriced $40 ppv charge but the prob is, interestingly enough, its blacked out in Alabama and san Jose espn3 markets. So my question is; is there any way I can make my phone browser "think" that its using a non-blacked out market tower or like server so that my phone is able to stream the game through via espn3 as though I'm not in blacked out market area?

    You can use a proxy, but im not sure how that works on a phone.

    So WiFi wouldn't be location sensitive as far as the espn3 blackout areas are concerned?

    as far as i know, the wifi is connected to your IP address which is location specific...I subscribe to mlb's baseball broadcasts and they black you out based on the zip code attatched to your IP...and my laptop is connected via my wifi connection...

    so..thinks this may not work...but as stated, why not at least try it...?

    Its not whether or not you use wifi. When you sign into ESPN3, no matter where you are, you are using your account from your home. You could be in California and it still would be blacked out. The only way around it is to login to espn3 with a different login, i.e. a friend who lives out of the area.
