It depends on how the "open proxy" is configured.

For what its worth, use your wallet, I pay $20 a year for a light
slackware US (LA) VPS (128m is fine) and VPN is a sinch,  its why I dont
bother watching FTA stuff even because of how the networks in AU treat
us, person of interest, nearly 3 months ahead oh AU, covert affairs,
already done and dusted, the list goes on, and yes, I question why I
bother with foxtel, all they do is up the prices for no gain, like the
"new channels" jan 1, which are simply renaming of existing channels and
they will charge us a few bucks a month more for that privilege *sigh*
