Dont worry about the TV- once you get here you'll be outside that much you won't watch telly anymore! Netball is BIG here so you are into the right sport.
if you really cant do without BBC Iplayer there is a free program for your PC like the one mentioned above now. It does have ads on but it does work with Iplayer and ITV player etc. I only got it to watch Moto GP with british commentary...
If you type a search into google for "watch bbc iplayer" and a link with the same name will appear. You will have to do that when you are here though.
All the programs you have mentioned are here on normal tv in some shape or form though.
You will have to leave the telly a bit though to get out playing netball and making new friends. You will find that very easy here as people over here are very friendly.
i'm hoping to be outside a lot more as i'm always inside 'cause its so cold here....
i'm sure i'll get used to the tv just like everything else that will be out there!
You can download British X Factor and plenty of others, from http://www.uknova.com .
You have to wait until the Monday to download Saturday's show, but it's worth the wait!
