BBC Iplayer comes to sky

It is possible to do this in Switzerland, however you would need to set up a UK network via a VPN inside your Swiss internet connection. Please note that you have to have this option turned on by Sky, by logging into your sky account.

And have Sky+HD box, not just LD Sky+. UK VPN covered at length elsewhere, although I guess having the VPN at the router, not just the device (or can you configure the Sky+ box to use a VPN?!)

I have a router (linksys WRT54GL) running a UK vpn script (programme which connects it automatically to a UK VPN) which then feeds into my Swisscom router thus gives me a seperate UK wireless network in the house. I then connect the box (Sky, Humax etc) via a wireless dongle (could be an ethernet cable or powerline sockets) to the UK router. As far as I know their is no provision to connect a VPN via the Sky box, but it will check whether the network is a UK one.
