BBC/ITV live on your iphone/ipad free in Switzerland

Hi all
not sure if this has been posted before but I thought I'd share anyway. Found an iphone app called filmon that streams live UK TV channels over wifi and works outside of the UK. No adds or subscription required. Link to apples appstore below

http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/filmo...465127107?mt=8

If radio is your thing see app 'tunein' all the UK radio stations are here.

For those days when you need a little taste of the UK.

There have been quite a few of these services which come and go once the licencing authorities have caught up with them. I guess this has a more robust legal foundation??

Have been using filmon since we arrived in August. It really works well, you can also download the HD version for your lap top. Let's see how long it lasts!

Re: BBC/ITV live on your iphone/ipad free in Switzerland

I have a DNS proxy server and therefore can watch BBC iPlayer on my Philips TV bought in Switzerland. However, I can't seem to be able to access ITV hub, 4 On demand and Ch 5, which is strange.

Does anybody ne know how I could access those services? Do I need to reset my TV in a special way to access those on demand services?

Re: BBC/ITV live on your iphone/ipad free in Switzerland

I don't think there's an issue with my DNS proxy server as I can receive BBC iPlayer in my Philips TV app. It's just that I can't receive the other ITV, 4 On Demand and My5 apps.
