Listening to the BBC Comentaries online in Switzerland

Hi Folks,

Is there any way I can listen to the World cup cricket commentry from the BBC online?

Apparently the feed is only available to UK users

It's England vs. The Kiwis and I really don't want to miss it

Thanks. Oh well, by the look of how things are going in the game I'm not sure that I really want to be listening anyway

Just passing some time at work, and came across this article on a website trying to bypass Sky's exclusive on the cricket. Maybe you should check it out.

Or people appearing to be in the UK. I would imagine that it would be possible to use a proxy for such a purpose, though of course I could never recommend it.

Re: Listening to the BBC Comentaries online in CH

ok so how theoretically would one do that? for us IT challenged folks but cricket fanatics......There is a lot of difference in skills for cricket compared to computer stuff..I was quite good at cricket - you know what that means

Re: Listening to the BBC Comentaries online in CH

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ano...xies+-download will give you some sites on the subject. Basic idea is that you go to a proxy site where you type in the link that you really want to look at, then when the web server at the target site gets the request for the page (or audio file or whatever) it sends it to the proxy site which sends it to you. What you need to do is find a proxy site in the UK.

I know it isn't the same, but don't the BBC do a live text report? The Guardian do, the one for England/NZ was at http://sport.guardian.co.uk/cricket/...035764,00.html

Re: Listening to the BBC Comentaries online in CH

Has anyone found a way of getting BBC 5Live Extra.
Not being able to listen to TMS for the Sri Lanka series is driving me nuts.
I have tried proxy servers but to no avail. Does anyone know of a working proxy?
If anyone has found a way please reveal your secret. Watching the score click round on cricinfo is too labour intensive when I need to be working.

Thanks New Forrester

One question though if I may.
Will this also work on a MAC?

TVAnts has a Mac version that you can download from their site. The others you'll have to search for or run the Windows programs under Bootstrap emulator on the Mac.
