Looks good. Thought it wasn't going to work at first, but then it kicked in.

Couldn't get it to work on my Mac here, I tried copying the MMS links in the source code into VLC and didn't really get anywhere :(

Works with my Mac. :thumbup:

Looks good...about 3 minutes behind "live", but nice to have - though I have a VPN anyway (My Private Network). Since I can't VPN from work, this could come in handy. I hope it will expand to more of the channels shown on TV Catchup (which blocks VPN's).

Hope this one lasts...

And, despite what it says on the site, it works on Firefox too.

I'm a fully paid up technophobe, but how do you get this thing to work?

nldfc Oct 18th 2010 3:56 pm

Re: New link for British TV
 
just click the link - click on the channel you want to watch - give it maybe 2 minutes to buffer and should kick in

Is it my connection or are these channels getting slower to load up :confused:

I still can't get it to even load up. Has anybody found any instructions?

nldfc Oct 19th 2010 1:21 pm

Re: New link for British TV
 
What stage are you getting to - I can get it to load no problem - just seems to be getting slower

When I click on the OP's link, get to the home page fine. Then I seem to root around but never get to an actual programme. Last time I got to the home page of ITV3, but no programming....I don't know what the sequence of buttons or lnks to follow is.

Re: New link for British TV
 
Seems to be not working just now - I will have a look at it in a bit - hopefully its back up and running before countdown :D

Got it working! Are there more than the 10 channels displayed on the first page? I was really after Cbeebies (for the kids - naturally)

nldfc Oct 19th 2010 5:38 pm

Re: New link for British TV
 
Working now for me as well - they must have been having problems this morning missed countdown but managed to catch the weakest link :thumbup:

I thought cbbc was cbeebies but I must have thought wrong :) - I will have a dig around this afternoon for a cbeebies link ( There is a pretty good Disney movies channel in the US link I posted further down )

Thanks soooo much for this, it works brilliantly...I have an 11 yr old with a serious bout of homesickness so perhaps a bit of Brit tv might help :unsure:

I know we have to adapt but without 64 Zoo Lane - life looses something. Treehouse just isn't the same yet!

I shall assume your child is a tad younger than mine who at 11 needs a dose of Merlin and X factor but will probably settle for Masterchef!!!

KerinaK2008 Oct 20th 2010 2:04 am

Re: New link for British TV
 
Hoping to glance X factor live on Saturday if this link is still working! I got caught up with a show when i went to London a few weeks back. Talent did not seem that great this year though. But always interesting to glance. UK Apprentice looked interesting though. I have been hooked since series 1. May try and catch Question Time this week too.

Thanks again.:thumbup:

Re: New link for British TV
 
Checking tonight, things seem to have changed around and I don't seem to be able to connect...now the download of a TVU player is required and I get "channel not available" messages. Anyone experiencing similar?

SivoxII Oct 20th 2010 8:09 am

Re: New link for British TV
 
These kind of sources typically break down pretty quick (or grab your interest, before changing things!)

rivingtonpike Oct 20th 2010 10:31 am

Re: New link for British TV
 
I can't get onto the site any more either. Is this a common phenomenon - that it works for a short space of time and then just stops? I was really looking forward to using the site for the nostalgic "Question Time" sort of stuff....

nldfc Oct 20th 2010 12:07 pm

Re: New link for British TV
 
ah well - good while it lasted - hoped to get a bit bloody longer out of it though :confused:

nldfc Oct 20th 2010 12:32 pm

Re: New link for British TV
 
Maybe all not lost just yet - I signed up as a member and it still all works in the windows media player section at the top - I think there were 3 channels out of the 24 not working

Making you sign up is normally the first step to charging fees to use though :frown:

Just signed up and I'm back online - just hope it works until Match of the Day on Saturday.
