Default Hack to fake your location?

I noticed a few things that seem to be region specific. I was wondering whether without the use of a VPN or proxy whether it's possible to change anything in the kernel to lie about your region. Why? For things like accessing Google movie and Netflix etc when it comes along.

I've just installed the new Google market from a DL link elsewhere on my rooted WW and it does not show Google movies.

Google Movies is within the new OTA (Videos app)
