This was on the BBC 6 nations site this morning, don't know if it will help. I do hope you manage to come up with something. Luckily I am in Germany so am off to the pub to watch, here's wishing us luck

The BBC's live TV coverage of the RBS Six Nations is to be broadcast on the BBC Sport website for the first time.
The internet innovation was given the go-ahead following negotiations between the BBC and the Six Nations Committee.

Limited highlights had previously been available online at half and full-time but now internet users in the UK can watch all the action as it happens.

AS far as I know BBC and other EU TV networks block viewing to outside countires on the internet. Ill check BBC out though...hopefully I am wrong. We can watch the rugby in a few bars around here but its a $30 cover charge to get in ... Maybe when Irl play (I mean beat) Eng Ill stump up that money and go get pissed in a bar at 9 am (local time) in the morning

Ha in your dreams Should be a good game though, especially watching it at the Irish pub, lots of yelling at each other but it's all good natured banter.

As to the link, no sorry I just saw it on the bbc site & nothing is on right now.
& if as you say they block it then it may also be blocked here, as we are not meant to be able to receive even BBC tv, of course with the right size dish it's easy
Maybe try the bbc site at 3pm (in half hour) thats when the France Scotland game starts. If i'm still at home then I will have a look at the site & see if I can get in, maybe I could copy the link then & send it...might get around the block??

Are you going to bbc.com or http://www.bbc.co.uk/ ?? On the home page there is a link to the 6 nations, then on the six nations page there is a pic of France winning last year. At the bottom of that pic is a link the the on line coverage. I think the pre show is in about 5/10 mins, will have to turn on the telly to see. But try it then.

YOu basically need a transparent UK proxy server that is fast enough to hold a stream. Not very common to find a free one these days unfortunately.

that's the problem, plenty of UK proxies...not many that'll be fast enough to keep the stream from buffering lots and going to poo...
