International fans of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are no longer able to see videos from the show – including the archival videos from both show’s history – after Comedy Central upgraded its video player and blocked international visitors.
Previously, both sites allowed international visitors to watch clips of the show, including the latest episodes. The only parts that were geoblocked were full episodes. Now, you must be in the United States to see the clips, something that would most undoubtedly anger international fans – such as myself.
There are ways to circumvent the geoblock, and if you watch shows from Hulu, then that loophole will work.
But, let’s just hope Comedy Central/Viacom reconsiders this move.
