Just back from Palma. it doesn’t work. until you get a VPN oh, and you now need a licence to watch BBC iPlayer in any form. law was changed last year.
Yep...but this discussion could open the floodgates. Just a thanks to the Op. I have family living abroad and visit often...didn't know about this app but is another to try, especially as Prime and Netflix restrict my non broadcast viewing.
Well according to HUKD, TVPlayer isnt a reputable company, because when i posted a deal for them a while back i was told TVPlayer dont meet HUKD critera, it was removed, and my HUKD account permanently flagged as untrustworthy so anything i post must be approved by the mods first. But passive aggressive mods aside I found TVPlayer much better than TVCatchup and it has been a life saver in hospital (QE in UK) where they charge £5/day just to watch TV yet the Wifi is free. That said, TVPlayer isn't perfect, you still occasionally get to see in-app banner adverts despite paying to remove them, and there's no live BBC anymore - it dumps you into the iPlayer app. So occasionally trying the alternatives like TVCatchup is a good idea.
TVPlayer is much better site and more channels. Why is this even a deal, surely everyone is aware of this, no?
I agree that the name TVCatchup is a misnomer, leads to some confusion as it only broadcasts (or rebroadcasts) “live” UK TV ... sometimes a couple of seconds after “live” TV. So, people in the UK who use this to watch UK TV channels, and are not exempt from the licence fees, should be paying them. Yes, HUKD is aimed at the UK population, but it would be interesting to learn how much of the audience is from overseas .... (y)
