Proxies for watching BBC iplayer when abroad?

Discussion in 'Gaming and Software' started by Tartan_Terrier, Nov 7, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have heard that if I use a proxy site I can make the BBC website think I am in the UK so that I don't get blocked.

    Does anyone here have any recommendations as to which site would be best?

    I've tried one or two, but still couldn't get access. So rather than just giving me a list of Google results, I'd like to hear from people who've actually tried using them.

    Cheers in advance for any help.

  2. I too am interested in getting this to work.......Africa Magic has its pitfalls!
  3. been looking for a working proxy for ages, many do not support the flash player.
    Any help would be great.
    You are right Africa magic just doesnt provide the same entertainment level
  4. Hup............

    Come on chaps, someone must have the answer!
  5. Check PMs chaps
  6. :D Don't keep it to yourselves gents
  7. Thanks for the tip, but I'm a tight git. Are there any options that won't cost me money?
  8. Dont be so tight you are going to get BBC progs without spending money on a licence so get yer hand in yer pocket
  9. I pay my licence but they will not allow me to watch when i am overseas.
    Yet anyone in the uk (licence payer or not) can watch a service i fund.

    A fairer way to do it would be to issue a username and password to all licence payers. This could be used no matter where in the world you are.
  10. I pay 220 quid a year for my Danish TV license, and nearly 300 for cable here, so I'm buggered if I'm paying more to watch TV.
