U.K. radio streaming
hi all,
Mrs. G has been used to listening to her favourite UK radio stations via her computer at work.. but recently they've tightened up the firewall I guess so now all she gets is..
"Licencing restrictions require that Magic's myPlayer is only available to UK based listeners. Magic uses a system to determine your geographic location via your IP address to make the decision."
So... is there any ( easy way ) around this, or perhaps an alternate method ( DAB radio? ) so she can happily listen to Heart , et. al. again?

She will need a VPN to the Uk to listen to that radio station

Radio 1 works a treat though :)

Basically you need the website to think you are in the UK by connecting through a proxy server in the UK.

Don't waste your time with any of that....

I use FreeSat at home which is great.

But if you are using the net there is http://radiotime.com which gives you access to many many stations throughout the world including UK.

They also have a cool app (paid) for your phone that works just as well.

Give it a go!
