Default Sattelite Direct

Don't know if this network has already been mentioned on this site but my hubby downloaded it a couple of months back, I love it, it's a one off payment of $49.99 and I watch all the British soaps on it amongst other things, you can also watch T.V and listen to radio from all over the world, I used to get Eastenders on PPV on Dish Network, but I hadn't watch Coronation Street in years, it was great to catch up......another network for free radio in the U.K. is Radiofeeds, I know alot of them that you try and tune into these days are restricted to UK listeners only.

Or download a free VPN and make a one-off saving of $49.99?

If it works for you, that's great....though there are other methods that work for free too with a little more effort.

I'm not making any recommendation whatsoever, but while researching this, I found a link that brings the price down to $29.95. Again, I'm not vouching for this.

Use a VPN to watch iPlayer etc.
Use BitTorrent via a sites such as UK Nova or The Box.

Both of these completely free avenues have been discussed extensively so a search will bring you all the info you need on either choice.

I use www.ibvpn.com since it's cheap and works better than the free VPN services which I've found to be more than a little hit-and-miss.

I think I paid about $14 for 6 months when they had an offer on in December. all the UK TV catchup services work with it, and it's great for listening to the footy on 5-live.
