Most stuff on the Channel 4 player can be watched here. The BBC cant due to copyright and licencing, same for the ITV player.

You can pretend you're in the UK by surfing via a UK proxy. Google it

There are several threads on this forum about this, and several solutions. I use ToR. Try googling with 'site:boards.ie' as an additional search term.

I know this is an old thread but thought someone might be able to give me advice.

I've downloaded ToR and it's working fine but anytime I try watch anything through the ToR browser such as BBC iPlayer or ITV iPlayer it tells me I need to update my Adobe flash.
I'm on Mac here and have updated several times now to I think it's version 12.. but still not working.
I also have silverlight as netflix wouldn't work without it.

Any advice appreciated
tks
