I really like Broadchurch so you have to watch it whenever you get the chance. I too wasn't impressed with Spies of Warsaw and in my personal opinion the only good thing about it was seeing a semi naked David Tennant..

I like Tunnelbear and the price is good too. The streaming sometimes has issues but that's probably because I use WiFi and if anyone else in the house is using the main computer at the same time it seems to be slow. But if I'm the only one online at the time then it's just like watching normal telly.

As for laptops I'm not that sure... I think so long as you have good RAM and good processing speed you should be good to go, but if you go and tell the guys at the computer stores what you're looking for they can point you in the right direction. I have a Toshiba Satellite and it works good for me.

8 in the series. Here in Australia I can watch it with my morning cuppa on Tuesday. Be interesting to see who did it.

I use AceVPN, they are very good and I have access to all UK TV channels.

Yup, I'm enjoying it too! (and the new series of Scott and Bailey and looking forward to more Endeavour - the future is looking good!) No idea whodunnit, I change my mind with every episode! Must admit I wasnt a great David Tennant fan but he is growing on me and I can see the attraction now.

Is expatshield not working any more? I used to use that (with annoying ads) when I was in Australia.

Expatshield seems to work fine for others from what I've been told. I just never had any luck with it myself and it wouldn't load or work correctly from the start. Whereas with Tunnelbear it was a dead easy download, easy to operate and worked like a charm from day one. No-one could tell I'm biased

Broadchurch has been snapped up by BBC America for broadcast here in the US later this year. That's for those who don't have any other way to view it.. LOL

yep reviews are good on tunnelbear an acevpn which somebody else recommended. Hola.org has still not fixed BBC Iplayer issue so time to find something else. expatshield caused me issues so not going to use again. There are 4 Carry On movies on right now on ITV. I know they are silly but nothing better than seeing that old craggy face of Sid James and hearing his laugh

Hola apparently no longer support the BBC so you will no longer be able to get the BBC Iplayer on Hola.

I've just watched a couple of episodes of Countryside 999 and now I'm watching 'Escape To The Country'

So got my new computer My 2008 HP finally died

Got an ASUS with all I need for streaming videos. Got new router too. Will download Tunnelbear tomorrow. Have Netflix and Amazon Prime. Plan on getting Hulu Plus tomorrow too. Who needs cable? With all that I can actually get what I want (instead of endless reality shows) and still save money!

I use Tunnelbear too but I also have HideMyAss which does not cost much more! I am so addicted to my English TV shows that when there is a slow wifi connection, I panic! The Village is great, Broadchurch took me a while to get into....off to watch Casualty now!

I will be able to get all episodes of Broadchurch from the beginning on Tunnelbear, right? OH was wondering if they were only up for a certain period of time.

I think it's about a month so you might not get the first episode anymore but you can always check You Tube

Downloaded Tunnelbear and signed up for the year as it was even cheaper. First episode was missing, but went straight to wikipedia and got the synopsis. All caught up now Must say I much prefer DT with his Scottish accent. He sounded awfully stuck up in Spies of Warsaw All in all think this is a great series. Will have a look later to see what else is available. Whofan, can you give me a list of what you watch? I am not at all up on the current shows. When will the next Broadchurch come out?

Next Broadchurch is tomorrow night. My favourite shows are Coronation Street, Casualty, Holby City, The Village, Foyles War, The Syndicate, Prisoners Wives, there are so many it really depends on what kind of shows you like. I downloaded TV Guide so I can see what shows are coming up. Enjoy!

Ooooh tomorrow already!!! I am a Masterpiece Theatre kind of person, so any kind of period drama is right up my alley, but also travel shows and detective shows. Have no idea about the latest sit-coms, and I'm not much one for soaps. Good idea about the TV Guide. Will have a look.
