Unfortunately, CBC Gem is exclusive to Canada.
True BUT I found
which has a lot to say on this subject including:-
The IP address system is the ID system used on the internet; every device connected to the internet has a unique IP address, which includes, among other information, your geo-location. Many services geo-restrict their content and enforce those restrictions using IP address detection. This means you may not be able to access your usual services while abroad. Thankfully, a VPN can mask your location by providing you with an IP address from a country of your choosing. It does this by tunneling your traffic through an intermediary VPN server in that country.
How do I get a Canadian IP address from abroad?
Follow these steps to get your internet freedom back and continue to use all the services you can get in Canada.

Choose a VPN (we recommend ExpressVPN).
Download and install the appropriate VPN app for your device.
Connect to one of the VPNís Canadian servers.
Surf to a Canadian-restricted site, such as the CBC, and you should be able to view content with no issues.
But there are a number of alternative free ways to achieve the same result which I intend to check out tomorrow (after today's jollifications are over
Happy New Year everybody!!
