My son watches on Netflix - I don't know how recent the episodes are but as he had never seen any in the UK it doesn't matter to him.

You can download them using a TOR program from BBC iPlayer. They are downloadable (all BBC programs) as soon as they hit iPlayer

Click the TV links on Firstrow or atdee

There are usually a few alternative streams for each one - just find one that works.

The first BBC2 link on firstrow is working as I post.

If Graham Norton on BBC Canada is anything to go by they could be 1 or 2 years behind.

Depends on what episode they are showing, seeing as top gear and gn are on everynight it doesnt take long to cycle through them all, sick of both shows these days personally.

Or just watch it through iplayer on a PC connected to the TV. None of this converting or copying faffing about.

Tried the I-player a few times without success , Im on a Mac but windows was no better . I could jailbreak the Apple TV and do it like that , But Im happy doing what I've been doing for years. It just works .

It works fine for me on both a mac and a PC and I get the advantage of browsing and youtube or whatever else is on the internet. As opposed to converting file formats and copying, which are not my definition of "it just works", more "it works if I do some faffing about" but each to their own.

If you're an apple guy, a mac mini will do you (if you don't mind squinting at the font). Add one of these these and you can do all your surfing from the couch.

You've had a 50 foot TV for years? Do you live in the Skydome?
