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

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

I just had FiOS installed in my home. Used to have COX Cable. Fox News can be watched online for free and I was always able to open it. Now that I have FiOS television and Internet access, they block it online unless I have subscribed to a package which includes it. I haven't. Why would I watch Fox News online when I can watch it on TV? Anybody have a work around? Thanks..........

For any blocked sites I use the free browser based VPN service ZenMate. I remember watching The Simpsons from Fox (they don't normally allow non-US connections). But your milage may vary. ESPN wouldn't work (asked for ISP info etc)

I just read the reviews of ZenMate - was ready to download it. Seems it's not what it used to be. Thanks.........

I went ahead and installed ZenMate on Firefox. However, when I try to watch FoxNews online, I still have to go through Verizon FiOS and a message tells me that I can't watch Fox News Online unless I have already subscribed to a FiOS package which includes Fox News. Am I doing something wrong?

Hey, sorry I couldn't reply back sooner as I was out all day. I have yet to read the reviews.

Did you enable ZenMate connection in Firefox? It should be an icon at the top right (looks like a shield - see screenshot). Make sure you select United States from the country list.

Is this the correct page? The large red square is a live stream by the way.

My connection is 100/4 Mbps

ZenMate while connected to USA free server:


Germany free:


Pretty good for a free service, and consider you will only use it for when you can't use your ISP (I don't use it for my daily stuff, just the banned sites in Turkey and if a page doesn't load in IE). 4 Mbps is enough for 1080p streaming.

I have yet to see any spamming, I am registered by the way and no email spam either. So I don't know what those people are talking about. I even consider buying a premium yearly plan (you get offered a 60% discount after using it a bit as free), and you can get a free premium week for registering if I remember correct.

I hope this clears some confusion.

ZenMate - How to set variables?

I have the Icon but it doesn't give me an opportunity to set any variables. It doesn't even require my email address. Something is wrong.

Doesn't look like the page I had - but it would be a start if I knew how to get at the page you're showing. When I try to access Fox News Online, I have to first chose an ISP - and, of course, it's now FiOS. I think you went different route. When you get a chance, please tell me what to do.

OK, when I click on the Icon in Firefox, I see where I can set the variables. Please tell me what to set each variable as. Thank you........
