Make my IP address appear to be from another country

Is there any way I can view a stream not available to my country? Via some proxy maybe? I think it's based on the IP address.

There are many subscription VPN services that you could use, but FreeVPN is free* (for some countries/servers). I have used it to view BBC iPlayer when I am abroad, or view some American content that is usually unavailable to me while at home in the UK, like The Daily Show clips.
