Why would you want to watch it on your phone...a 60" HDTV screen is much better?

Just get a VPN service and enable your phone to utilize the VPN so you can get everything, including the BBC iPlayer.

Yup, 60 inch screen would be better!

So take a leaf out of a Goodies episode (remember them?) - get trousers with a huge pocket to take your 60 inch screen

seriously, the process for a mobile is same as desktop: you need to use either a VPN connection to a PC which then goes out to the Internet via a UK IP address - OR connect to the Internet via a proxy server which itself connects to the Internet via a UK IP address.

Then you can watch BBC iPlayer and tvcatchup.com (ace!) and all the others.

You can also watch on your mobile if you have a Slingbox setup as slingbox has an app specifically for this.

There are enty of proxy servers out there offering what you need for about £60 a year.

Cheers

Harry
