Good news for Uk TV viewers, I see that Zattoo have now added BBC1 to their collection.

BBC1. Wish I'd known last night to watch MOTD. This site looks great. Cant get the BBC news channel to work though. BBC2 tonight would be good I agree.

Re: UK TV online for free

Have tried this link, but nothing appears on the PC except "something here soon". Did I go in at the wrong time, 5am?

Re: UK TV online for free

With TV Links, Zattoo, etc, is it just live TV, or can you select shows to watch separately, like on the BBC I-Player (that we can't get here, bah)?

We already have satellite, but no recording facility at present, so I keep missing things - would these services help with that?

Many thanks.

Re: UK TV online for free

You can always opt for torrents.
"the box" and "UKnova" have next day downloads from almost any interesting and non-interesting tv program you might have missed.
The watch it on your PC, stream it to your TV, or burn it to DVD and watch it.

Or get a Media Player:

http://www.popcornhour.com

http://www.dvico.com/

I have the TViX M-6500A with a 1Tb hard drive and it's a great. Could have got away with a smaller harddrive (or none at all) as it can stream directly from my NAS.

I'll have a Popcorn too (on order/waiting list) for antoher room so will be able to give a comparison. Heard the popcorns interface is not as nice.

tv-links new web address

tv-Links.co.uk was shutdown by the authorities and the owner arrested.

The new link is www.tv-links.cc

If, like me, you are a lover of American TV you can use www.hulu.com to get some episodes of Simpsons etc. You need to download and install Hotspot shield from www.hotspotshield.com to convince them (by the magic of computers) that you are in the US.

Re: UK TV online for free

I like UK tv but would really miss my Seinfeld (like I haven't seen each episode 100 times) and King of Queens if I didn't find www.freetvonline.com It has all episodes from virtually all tv from 1960 to now. It also has live tv as well for all the North Americans out there. I was pretty happy to watch all the old Bionic woman episodes form the 70's (Wonderwoman was pretty embarrassing to watch though , we certainly we corney in the 70's!!!!!!!!!)

Re: UK TV online for free

The original tv-links site was shut down a few months ago if i recall correctly. Was in the Brit newspapers that the hoster was arrested for infringing the law.

I have been using the following sites since.

http://www.surfthechannel.com/, http://tvshack.net/

Same set-up as the tv-links site... enjoy.

Thank you thank you thank you! I lost bbc prime on my cable 2 months ago and can't afford a satellite system at the moment so I am overjoyed to be able to watch Eastenders and Doc Martin etc on my PC. You are my star of the month!!

Re: UK TV online for free

I've tried to register with Zattoo but, the screen comes up for about 10 seconds then goes white with the hour saying downloading but nothing happens. Is the site still up and runing or have the cyberpolice got them.

Has anyone found a work round for getting BBCi player?

Re: UK TV online for free

Hi Ab Fab,
I googled zattoo , and went to Zattoo.com, clicked on download. The program install, but when I get to the registration a flash of text, then a white screen. I've tried it on this laptop runnng Vista and a pc with xp, but it's the same story. I'm on cablecom and have Nortons 360 could that have anything to do with it

I run MacAfee and it asks me when I start Zatoo - so you may want to check if Norton is blocking it...
