 UK TV from abroad Minimize

Following many problems using the free software distribution that you'll still find available at the bottom of this page, we have been testing an alternative system, that works much better. Though not free, it is cheap and in our minds well worth it. The system not only allows you to watch English TV live, but also BBC iplayer, catchup, demand5 etc. Also it works as a VPN, so in effect it encrypts the data going from your computer to the exit point in the UK. So if for example you are using an open or free wifi connection, you can rest assured that while the program is active and connected, all your data is invisible to the people that maybe snooping on the wifi network.

The system costs less than 25euros a year and can be signed up for here: VPN software

The system also allows you to connect to the USA and Australia so you can watch TV from abroad anywhere.

BBC iPlayer from France for Free

Links : BBC iPlayer   - ITV Player

Many people asked me for a free program to enable them to watch the BBC iPlayer and ITV catch-up online from France. Eventually I found the time to put something together that allows them to do just that. Sadly it doesn't work for C4 and C5 catch-up due to technical issues with Flash player.

The free program download to allow you to watch English / UK television online for free can be found by clicking the download link : DOWNLOAD English Internet Tv abroad.

Download the compressed .ZIP file - decompress it to a folder somewhere handy, like on your desktop or on a USB memory stick - it doesn't need to be installed just decompressed and then run the program you find inside. The application is a mashup of TOR and portable Firefox.

Hope you enjoy watching English TV online via our mashup of applications - it is provided for free, as is with no warranties or guarantees. It can be a little slow to start up, if you have a lot of lagging then try watching at a later time when Internet traffic is less.

There are some alternative systems like VPN (Virtual Private Network) that work very well, though they tend to be a paid service due to the bandwidth that they consume. Alternatively here are a few freebie websites that allow some online access to either live or catch-up type services:
BBC World News -Al Jazeera - France24 -Euronews - Russia Today - etc.

UK and USA series catch-up (bit like seesaw was - seesaw was great!) can be a bit fiddly to choose a free viewer without catching some loathsome download, but otherwise is good.

We advise you to stay away from because in our opinion for the unwary there are too many risky downloads forced upon you with potentially dangerous outcomes.
