Default Proxy server to watch UK tv

Hi

Does any one know of a reliable proxy server that I can use so I can watch UK TV online?

Seems like you can watch ITV online via their website but it is only for UK residents. A friend of mine found a proxy server once and it worked but the ip address for that proxy server has since dissapeared and the ones we have tried since have not worked.

Thanks

You have to find new ones regularly. Try here

or Slingbox apparently allows you to watch UK cable TV through your PC.

Good idea. Can I get a proxy server to watch Canadian TV? 'cos I can't be bothered with either of them.

Default Re: Proxy server to watch UK tv

I occasionally use
www.liveuktv.com

They offer week long free trials..I just generate a new gmail address and sign up over again. Its seems to work pretty well, for watching england footy games and the like thats arent available on cable here

Otherwise a simple proxy service I found usefull was
www.surfeverywhere.com

and to access radio five I use the uk google site to "translate" it, and it thinks I am in the UK regardless of where I am.

I guess you go to http://translate.google.com/ and paste in the url

Erm, maybe I'm missing something but why can't you just go to the bbc website and listen live the Radio 5 directly? http://www.bbc.co.uk/fivelive/

Cos some stuff life footy international commentaries is only available to UK IP addreses due to licensing restrictions.

If you go direct to the home page you get the "not available in your location" recording. You have to have the whole long string of a url of the little embeded feed thats cropped off from sight in the link above in the translator for it to work when those particular restrictions apply.

You have to right click the properties on the link to the player on the five page, and copy the target url, then paste it in the google translator page.

Wink Re: Proxy server to watch UK tv

Hi All.
Not exactly a live stream but if you want to catch up on UKTV for quite a bundle of stuff you could do no worse than try www.uknova.com

Use the proxy variation if it wont work if your out of the UK, but AFAIK it works where ever you live

have fun

John

Hi Notiaink...honest

Now that the footie has started, I followed your instructions to copy url into translate, but it doesn't work. It still stops the player for matches especially when on Sky. So, tonight I used your link further up the thread and that too doesn't work.
Is there something I may be missing?

Many thanks
