Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that you cannot watch American TV over the internet if you're outside of the States. GASP! What's a girl to do? Now I know that in the grand scheme of things this isn't a big deal. I mean after all, I am living in Rome and how often am I going to have time to watch TV? Aren't there more exciting things to do??
Yes....but. What about those down times when I just want to kick back and watch Dwight and Jim go at it? Or what about when I want to see....I don't know...something culturally relevant back home? I don't think that this is too much to ask. So, I've done some research and have found a British website that allows you to access American TV online. From what I have read they do this through US based servers. Here's the catch. You have to subscribe to this service. Meaning: it costs $. Actually, it costs £. When I ran the conversion it works out to be about $8/month. There are no contracts and you can cancel at any time. The question is this: do I or don't I?
