Thanks for that pzumst, I was hoping you might chime in.
The question was how? The answer is: IP proxy
Uncle pzumst is correct to point out that there are risks involved.

By changing your IP. Let me explain that in
layman's terms. Your computer has an IP address, similar to a Zip or postal
code. If I visit the PBS site I would be refused because my IP clearly
identifies me as non-american ("Hey, hang on, that is a swiss IP, I can't let
that bloke in !"). No access, no dice, for rights reasons only american IPs are
allowed to enter.
But by changing your IP you could get around that
by "fooling" the PBS server into thinking that you have a correct IP. It is
legal to hide or change your IP for various reasons and there are several ways
to skin that cat. Be very careful when googling this though and remember kids,
at your own risk ! It is not that difficult, there are several good
tutorials out there, but if you do not feel secure I advise you wait for the DVD
release. Might include a few bonus interviews, featurettes, outtakes, who knows
? If that thing wins an Oscar you will see it on shelves in a few weeks
Any further questions in the house ?

there are ways around that.
What are the ways? I'm intrigued. Happy new year,
