Spoof a US IP address?

Hi Folks
CBS have a website that streams hundreds of classic US TV programs. http://www.cbs.com/classics Unfortunately I just get a message saying none of it is available. I am guessing this is because I don't have a US IP address. I would love to watch some of these old shows, anyone know an easy way around this?
Peace be with you.

I have tried several proxy addresses with no luck, in fact I cant connect to anything once I use a proxy address. I have to remove it to see any web site.

Friends in Spain have the same problem with the BBC iplayer.  They get round it by using a proxy.
