Windows 7: Can't watch Fox News online because FiOS blocks it.

Hello!! I want to watch the Republican debate Thursday night. I have ZenMate enabled - but when I try to watch FOX news, I first have to declare which ISP I'm using. As soon as I click on FiOS, a message appears that tells me the I have to first be subscribed to a FiOS package that includes FOX News. It seems like ZenMate isn't working for me. Can you help me before tomorrow night? Thank you.........

Well, it is not working for me either. I have seen some comments that one would
need a smart DNS configured but no idea how that works.


Ok, bad news:
I just had a chat with Smart DNS help, it seems the provider asked is the cable provider and not an ISP. He said to me that you need an active subscription to it and they only provide a solution to reach the website not a means to bypass subscriptions. I thought this was a new way of checking whether you are from US or not.

Thanks for looking into this for me. I couldn't open the private message because of a pop-up blocker. I got ill this afternoon so I didn't shut off my pop-up blocker. If it's important, let me know by the posting and I will see if I can open it. Thanks again..........

Pop-up blocker is non-issue, click the "Your notifications:" link right below "Welcome, Nisko." on top left or Quick Links - Private Messages.

If link doesn't open, copy and paste it to another tab.

Thanks very much - I received your message. However, I can't follow your instructions - not familiar with your shortcuts. If you don't mind, please send me step by step the sites to go to to access FN. Thanks very much!!!!!!!!

PS: I couldn't find the message I sent to you in return - so I'm replying here.

Don't know how to access a private message. It seems a pop-up blocker might be the cause. How do I correct this? Thank you.......

Pop-up blocker is now set to OFF so I should be able to read your private message if you resend it. Thank you..........

Hi! I read the message - but, before I can connect to Fox News, I am asked what provider I have. I have FiOS. So, when I click on Verizon FiOS, I get another message which tells me that unless I have subscribed to a FiOS package which includes Fox News, I can't watch it online. I have not subscribed to a package which includes Fox News. So , I'm trying to find a way to get around Verizon FiOS blocking me from watching Fox News online. Right now, I'm stuck. Perhaps I don't understand the sequence of URL's to go through to get Fox News. Thanks............
