Not much likelyhood of that, there is a massive British population in the USA and most of us love Eastenders and would watch it on a regular basis if we could. I was in Britain when they stopped showing it over here and they said on the BBC news that the reason the US was no longer showing it was because they were unwilling to pay for it anymore.

But now the site says you have to be referred by someone - anyone care to step forward and give us their details so we can start watching EE again?

Oh, and if anyone likes aussie shows like neighbours and home and away, direct downloads can be found here- http://nei.gfunk.org/ but it's current, so it's a bit ahead of the game in the UK, but then again, I haven't seen either in years *lol*

Thanks for the Neighbours link Bob! The show I have missed from the UK the most, (bizarrely an Australian show of course). Karma coming your way once I figure out how to do it.

(Done).
