#14199: Tor Browser 4.0.2 can't access a particular site anymore

 I'm using Tor Browser 4.0.2 to access a specific live show that's
 available only to Spain residents (I happen to be spanish, just living in
 another country at the moment).

 The URL for the show is here :

 I have modified my torrc file by adding the following code : ExitNodes
 The exit node is now always located in Spain, as confirmed by the attached
 screen cap : !http://i61.tinypic.com/9jzn0y.jpg

 I believe I was able to access the live streaming at least once or twice
 after the installation of Tor Browser, about 2 weeks ago.

 However, I now consistently obtain the following error message :

 It basically says (error code 301) that the streaming video isn't
 available, but I really believe it is. I've been obtaining the same error
 for more than 10 days now, and the error isn't specific to the particular
 live show I'm looking for, but to any program aired by this site.

 So, can somebody help me with this ? Is this a bug from Tor Browser ? A
 new type of protection by the site that detects that I'm not really from
 Spain and acts accordingly ? Something else ?

 Thanks in advance for your help.
