Found 9th Aug 2008
I'm currently living in Virginia USA and have been trying to catch up with a few new series on the iplayer however a message pops up saying iplayer is for UK users only is there any way round this?

Thanks in advance

Can YOU access the ABC website - i'd love to know how or has it changed?

go via a proxy

Some tips on the following website my mate in NYC uses successfully

strix.org.uk/pos…yer

VPN is definitely the way to go!
vpngates.com/?ai…nic

Otherwise for the more computer literate of you out there, there is a way to view the BBC iPlayer from a non UK IP address, it requires some fiddling but appears to work. The set up process can be found here:
darkedges.com/bbc/

i think if you use a proxy server or something??, not sure how to go about this but seen ppl tell others to do this

Does this mean we (in the UK) can view TV shows in the US (like ABC)?

[QUOTE=dcx_badass;2713852]You could use a proxy to get round it.[/QUOTE
I tried using the one quoted by choc above but it didnt work

have also now tried going though [url]www.proxify.com[/url] -n get to the full player screen but nothing else happening

try this free proxy browser
youhide.biz

could just go illegal and download them
