Hi - do you know if there is anyway to watch ITV programmes on ITV player if you are not living in the UK? I tried to watch something and is said the video was not available to watch in my region ( Hong Kong) Downton Abbey starts tonight and I am desperate to watch it!

Thanks.

We use my-expat-network and have never had any problems, it works v well. £5 a month, as a pp mentioned. It only took a few minutes to install. We didn't find the free ones very reliable.

I am on this thread under another name....I never got expatshield to work.

Lots of full length programmes are uploaded to youtube these days.

I have been using Laptop Telly in the Med on my expat this Summer, works great for BBC & ITV content when I was away on the ipad

We use AD Telly. Also £5 a month from paypal. Did Downton start already?! I thought it was starting tomorrow on the 22nd?

I tried expat shield (or whatever it's called now) again this week, and again, nada.

Have now d/l expat network and it's working beautifully.

Another recommendation for adtelly here! Downtown starts this weekend I think!

You can also watch Corrie for free on YouTube smile

We have StrongVPN and it works brilliantly. One account and my iMac, all our iPads/phones and the PS3 are linked to it.

I use HideMyAss.com Pro VPN... Costs us the equivalent of 4GBP per month, paying for 12 months at a time. Works great! smile

I would recommend a service called SmartDNS, provided by a company called OverPlay. I've been using them for several years: www.overplay.net/#a_aid=OVRPLY

SmartDNS is a new way of accessing tv and video streaming websites that are usually geographically blocked to anyone trying to watch from outside the country. SmartDNS replicates many of the traditional VPN features, but without ANY loss

of speed. It permits access to restricted websites in different Countries. The best part is that with SmartDNS, you don't even need to dial into a VPN connection. The initial setup is super easy, and then you just browse as normal... but

without the limits.

SmartDNS enables virtually every streaming service you can imagine, and the servers are as fast as your internet connection.

It's $4.95 per month, or if you pay annually, it's $49.95, and you can cancel anytime.

I'd recommend Unblock Us: www.unblock-us.com/35771.html

It's faster than a VPN, and there's no software to install. Just follow the instructions on their website to make a small change to the DNS settings on your computer or whatever device you will be watching on, and that's it.

They offer a 7-day free trial with the simplest of sign-ups, just put in your email address. Once your free trial expires, then you can decide to pay $4.99 a month.

I've tried/paid several providers, and I can say that Unblock Us offers the fastest streaming connection of them all.

I use Hotspot Shield, means I can watch itv player, bbd inlayer, 4od etc as well as actually use my Netflix subscription. Can also change the settings to USA, australia etc so can access US netflix too grin

fairly reasonably priced as well IIRC
