Well I don't want to watch US TV now do I?

A little surprisingly my most popular post to date is the article I did at the end of Feb on the BBC iPlayer vs 4OD. I thought I would catch up on the best of Blightly by downloading a couple of shows I missed from last week. Both the iPlayer and 4OD use IP recognition and would not let me download anything, determining that I am outside of the UK. Does anyone know of any clever ways to get round this? I've paid my licence fee and demand to be able to watch what I have paid for!!!

  1. You need to spoof your IP address to a British one. Don't know whether either of them will fall for that though. Try http://www.echolink.org/proxylist.asp.

  2. Although it's probably against the conditions of service...

  3. Richard, you shouldn't admit to being a wannabe law-breaker online!!!

    All the good programmes come from Da USA, so enjoy them (FOR FREE) via your Yankee Tellybox.
