I have been useing Expat Shield for a number of weeks - - - quite sucessfully.
However over the past few days I have been unable to open it. Message comes up saying 'application not found'.
I live in Mandurah, South of Perth, WA. Is anyone else having this problem?
Any help would be appreciated.

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 would dearly love to catch up with some of the programs but the erratic nature of it began to bug me very quickly - was I doing something wrong and could have turned it off when I didnt need it?
You get used to it, I can tell now when the home page is starting up and just shut it down very quickly, also the ad banner tends to "blend" in after a while LOL!!

I watch the players on the full screen so don't see it as much, since installing this and the paid one I had (Identity Cloaker which I have let go), I haven't switched on my actual TV, it now seems worse than ever after watching UK telly. I have watched all the Christmas specials and am bang up to date with Coronation Street LOL!!

Also downloaded the torrent thingie (another thread) and have spent the last few nights watching "Who Do You Think You Are" and "Come Dine With Me" celeb special.

Re the torrent thingie I haven't got a clue what any of it means but it was so simple even a newbie like me had no problem.

Hi
Does anyone know how I can watch Sky. I have managed to create an account thanks to my lovely family in the UK but even though I am using Expat Shield Sky somehow knows that I am not in the UK.

Thanks

Another vote for expat shield. I've just returned from Perth where I watched Topgear (iplayer) and emmerdale (itvplayer). Great to watch as long as your internet connection is pretty fast.

Have you downloaded the Expat Shield toolbar, I always do my search for BBCiplayer in there rather than my usual Google.

A question for those using Expat Shield - have you been able to watch Channel 4 on demand?

I tried to watch Phil Down Under the other night and it wouldn't let me as it detected I was outside the UK, have been able to watch BBC iplayer fine so just wondering why I can't view Channel 4?

Log into Expat Shield as normal and then go to seesaw. Great connection as I have never had much luck with Channel 4 until then.......
