Default How to watch UK programs in Oz?

Hey Guys!

Touched down in Melbourne yesterday and wondered if anyone knew if it were possible to watch UK TV online - Like iplayer / demand 5 ect?

I saw ages ago a thread on programs that change your IP to make them think your in the UK but cant find the thread - any info greatly appreciated! Trying to keep my 14 year old happy at being able to watch EastBenders!

I've tried most of the proxy and vpn servers, paid and free and they are so slow that it takes forever to watch anything. Just join thebox.bz download them in 10 minutes and watch then when convenient.

this works and its free.

you just d/l a file and run it - it goes strsight to the iplayer page too if you want. otherwise chose which channels player you want.

just remember to close it properly so it restores you browser settings.

Nice website, some channels a bit jittery though

www.eztv.it if you were minded to use torrents for all major shows the day of their release. So I've heard.

Has anyone watched SKY player online? My Brother has SKY and I am wondering if I could use his login details to watch SKY channels.

Not much UK stuff on there, looks like it is mostly US. You can watch US stuff on ch131.com no download needed.

Torrentday and uknova are great. If you like uk radio get a Kogan Internet radio once you are here. I know you can listen to the BBC on a pc but you feel so much more at home when you can listen to Radio 4 on an actual Radio, especially with a nice cuppa.
