Re: UK TV Programs

I have that too. I always run a speed check first and choose the fastest one in the results. Usually works OK, although on the odd occasion if it is too slow, I watch at another time.

Re: free english television in cyprus

so can you not subscribe to astrill.com if you are in Cyprus? I am a Brit in the US, that's the way I watch UK TV here, only costs $5 or so a month, cheaper than the license fee.
