Re: Where to watch English TV online.

I know this suggestion is not free, BUT with a VPN subscription (one yearly cost) its like having your device in the UK and you will be able to access everything as being in the UK.

This includes apps like BBC iPlayer, 4oD, ITV Player, Demand 5 etc...

Re: Where to watch English TV online.

ExpatShield is a free VPN, which offers a UK IP address, and makes it possible to use iPlayer ITVPlayer and 4oD.

http://www.expatshield.com/

As a free service, it is littered with ads. which also appear on your browser ..... however I use Firefox browser with Adblock Plus add-on and the ads. are banished.

I am also aware that if you try to download ExpatShield using IE, you will more than likely get a security warning and it wont allow download. There is no security problem (that I am aware of) and it is due to the Smartscreen filter of IE, not recognising the program.

You can either disable SmartScreen Filter from the IE Tools dropdown, or use another browser.

Apparently Expat shield doesn't work on Apple hardware.

I've never been able to get 4OD working properly with Expat Shield for some reason, iplayer/get_iplayer is OK and I don't think I've ever wanted to try the ITVPlayer.

I've got a laptop on my network with Expat Shield on it and Privoxy on top of it to create a proxy server that works with iPlayer. I've used it with iPlayer PS3 in the past and the only inconvenience is that you need to manually start ExpatShield on the proxy if you want to use it, otherwise it's not too bad and can handle anything that allows you to set a proxy server.
