First of all not sure where to post this so if it's in the wrong place, I do apologise.
There's some US and UK tv shows which are uploaded onto their networks websites which US/UK peeps can stream and watch however, once the player detects you're not in the US/UK they won't let you watch them
I'm dying to catch up on the Celeb Master Chef which I missed on BBC (ok, so we can't all have taste!) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00cghcp
I've tried Hotspot Shield to hide my IP however that's not working, are there any other tools/sites/software out there that would enable me to stream shows from other countries?
This has been bugging me for ages!
I have actually been looking into this also as of late. I have found a solution though might be a bit costly but turns out you can get ALL american tv channels, HBO, etc etc.
Basically if you buy a Slingbox SlingBox, you can send it to Slingbox hosting companies in the states and they will setup a hosted connection to the American TV network for you. You will have a dedicated 3mb connection to your slingbox and you can stream all the US channels.
By the looks of things it works out at around $1000 a year for hosting, not including the price of the slingbox, though not really a bad price when you take into consideration the amount of channels you will receive. Works out around the same as the Sky premium package!.
You can use iPlayer on UTV connections when using their NI proxy, works great
Cabbal how do you do that
Just use proxy ni-cache.utvinternet.com Port 80 in your browser.
In Firefox, go to Tools, Options, then Advanced tab, click Settings, and choose Manual Proxy Settings.
I've found that the proxy fails occasionally.
Thanks byte. Tried it in firefox 2 but it didnt work. . I have o2 and edge.
It'll only work with a UTV ADSL connection,
I've found the proxy fails sometimes as well, tried it lastnight and no luck but yet I tested it last week when I got my UTV connection and it worked fine
That ni proxy has been in the crapper for the last week or so.
I was talking to UTV support about it and the response was
You might want to clarify this with them but I have the feeling it won't be coming back.
ah crap, lets hope its not dead
Go here and pick a UK proxy, enter it in the same place byte mentioned. The BBC video should then work (although it will likely be a lot slower than usual).
HotSpot Shield works perfectly for me on Hulu... see here
what exactly is the problem with HotSpot?
EDIT: Ah i see, HSS gives you a U.S. IP which wont work for BBC...
if you mask your IP address does that affect the content you recieve from Irish websites?
The clips played but were stopping every few seconds. Any solution to that problem?
it should be pointed out that if you are using HotSpot Shield you shouldnt do anything else, as any information that you access with it enabled is viewable by HSS.....
what error were you getting when it stopped playing?
