Any Canadians might be interested that Global is showing a documentary on HMCS Fredericton doing anti-piracy ops off Somalia tonight (13 Nov) - check your local listings for times. Others might be able to view on the net: HMCS Fredericton in the Gulf

I do not have access to this content. Guess its a Canadian film government file. Nice ship. Its getting more frequent that I cant see foreign vids. Sad I thought the internet would let us all share more and lessen restrictions.

1. I always recommend being honest with your electronics, and suggest you admit your Scandinavian heritage to your computer. It won't care, if it truly loves you.
2. What colour is your keyboard & monitor? Canadian content sometimes may not be available to beige equipment.

This Canadian from Alberta is advised, in an ominous female voice that "You do not have access to this content".

Wow... usually I get that kind of message (and I am NOT kidding) from the Comedy Network in the States.

Odd. I am Canadian, but currently in Phoenix. And I had no trouble at all.OTOH, if yer in Canada, you can probably turn on Global, as the OP suggested, and watch on the television apparatus.

No need to go all-high-tech

It's unfortunate in a way, but predictable more than anything. For most places that restrict access of their content, it's usually about revenue.
Internet revenue is derived on a 'per click' basis for advertisements, and each click is worth more or less based (essentially) on the income of the user.

So if you're in the Philippines like me, where the median income is something like $4,000/household/year, your average clicks from Filipino computers aren't likely to be worth as much as those from the USA, where the income is north of $40,000/year.

Other times it's simply a desperate, last-ditch power grab by the publishing networks to hold onto their content. The 'Big Three' in the USA (CBS/NBC/ABC) are notorious for restricting access to their content on the internet, because they understand that the medium is eventually going to kill their entire business model, let alone their company.

Anyway Im pretty sure the girl who says I do not have access to this content is named Kate. I have left out her last name for reasons of privacy. Im a pretty goof Poika most times but wish we could share stuff more freely. Sorry Kate it didn't work hope your enjoying being the voice of denial. Sadly I will most likely hear you voice more often.

No media provider is going to allow their original content to be available on the internet before it is broadcast. They have commitments to those who pay for the production that grants them exclusive rights / first use of the content. Once a production is aired, it is generally made available on the web, as original content has a short shelf-life for exclusive use and ages quickly.

Be patient.
