Just moved to Singapore from London ...it's really hard to catch up on corrie using you tube or torrent files...does anyone know how to connect to online British channels like itv player, bbc iplayer, 4od ? When you go to the website it say's available in UK only. I heard there is a way around this but couldn't figure it out myself…

Hello, one way you could probably go about doing it is to change your IP address (temporarily) in order to make the player/website think you are in another country. There are a few easy ways to go about this. Doing a quick google here is a site showing how. Good luck! http://www.websitecodetutorials.com/code/all-things-www-&-msc-help/how-to-change-your-ip-address.php

Hi, I know that you can't get BBC unless you mask your I.P. address. There are several of them for free online but beware you may get lots of ads and some download unwanted files into your computer.

It's using a system called VPN. Basically you connect to the internet then connect to a private network based in the UK. So the BBC etc see you with a British IP address because they are seeing the private network's internet connection which is based in the UK.

I have been using "uktvaccess" for half a year. Fully satisfied, 4 quid and good speed for UK sites.

Yes, the 4 quid is a bit off putting, but all the free 'IP hiders' I've tried seem to fail, so perhaps one needs to pay something.

I can confirm this! When using a IP address based in the UK iplayer works just fine. :)
