Depends where you are, but its not really related to firefox (except in a peripheral fashion)

As usual a good idea is to google it.

but a couple of good lifehacker guides are: http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2013/01/hola-lets-you-watch-region-blocked-videos-from-any-country-for-free/

i personally use a VPN for stuff like this. theres a fair bit of info on the web about the best for your individual country and your intended use.
