    Nope, a few really "Naughty cures " were dreamt up imagined.

     

    I'm not telling you at all to use PhProxy via Firefox at all ,it may be illegal;)

    Seems Tyke has already mentioned it, but he's right. You need to use a proxy server based in the UK, that way all your internet traffice will be relayed through that IP address. Hope that makes sense.

    Hi, I have build a proxy server based on linux for my in-laws, so they can watch BBC from abroad.

    I am actually on my way to Oz now and will test BBCi from here via our proxy. You will also need a router based in the UK.

    If my test is positive I do a write up on how to build a proxy in PIA.....

    we have just subscribed to this service

    http://www.uktelly.tv/

     

    Works fine for us.

     

    Can make IE a bit unstable under VISTA, but its worth it.

     

    We have been catchign up "Dancing on Ice" and Todd Carty (alias Tucker Jenkins/Mark Fowler) was hilarious in one of the shows.

     

    You can run a free trial, so give it a try.

    Hi,

    just an update.

    I just tested our proxy from Oz and it works very well.

    If somebody is interested in building your own I am very happy to write a quick manual.

    All software is free if you use linux (like the ubuntu distribution and "squid" as the proxy server app).

    Any old PC will do the job, but you will need a friend in the UK who is willing to host the machine.

     

    On the hand the uktelly.tv site seems to be a good alternative.

    I'm really struggling to understand why someone would actually WANT to watch Dancing on Ice??!! :nah:

     

    Let alone, PAY for the priviledge of doing so!

     

    Surely there's enough crap TV over here to watch?
