      Getting BBC iplayer in Oz

      Before Christmas there was an advert on PIO for a system that allowed you to get iplayer/C4 and ITV on demand in Oz by paying a subscription.

      Did anyone use it and what is it?

      Or is there anything else you can do to get British TV on your PC?

      LOL! Read this back and realise I sound desperate - Only for a bit of Brit TV and so is Oz husband! Everything else is fab.

      Oh dear! My children will be gutted! They had every expectation that 4OD and iPlayer were going to work so they could keep up to date with waterloo road and hollyoaks (have to admit i'm a Hollyoaks fan too but don't know if I'd be so desperate to need to keep up that I'd watch it on the laptop?) They were looking forward to it though so I'll be keeping an eye on this thread too! Any info greatly appreciated!

      Hi, I have tried to get onto bbc for my son to watch cbbc etc etc... what they do is track the ip address, it has to be a uk address, doing it via a blocker or remote server / proxy server will not work as it will have the wrong type of ip address...

      What i am trying to do is have a freind set up a intranet in the uk with around 6-8 computers that will each have an independant link to the internet (so each will have it's own unique ip address) in theory you should be able to log into it and then out of it to a uk site and as far as that site is concerned the computer talking to it is in the uk and will let you down load from it...

      If anyone read's this and want's to help / join in please PM me..!

      All the best...

      James...

      Anybody like to try the method suggested here:Life with Leukaemia: BBC iPlayer Overseas ?
      It's a little bit complicated but maybe worth trying.
      You can take the man out of the bog but you can't take the bog out of the man
