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!!!

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:

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?

These kind of sources typically break down pretty quick (or grab your interest, before changing things!)

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....

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.

Go here if not.

Make sure Saturday is the day selected and look down the list for MOTD. Click on the TV set on the right alongside and then you'll get a list of links to a live stream. They won't all work but some will and you should find them quite watchable.

Or you could just spend 5 quid a month (or less) and sign up for a reliable VPN that will give you access to just about everything...including iPlayer. The only actual advantage with the site we're discussing is that it's accessible from a Canadian IP address and is therefore advantageous for work surfing and the
like :)
