We're going to France for a while, where we'll have access to the internet, but no TV. I shall take my Windows 7 laptop, which has the beta version of the new BBC iPlayer installed, together with the iPlayer Desktop.
I've heard that the BBC have applied IP filtering to the iPlayer, to prevent access to it by dastardly foreigners. Will that mean that I can't use it in France to watch UK TV, or will I be OK as I already have it installed?
Also, does anyone have any other tips on getting UK TV programmes on the internet, please?
My aunt lives in Las Arenas just outside Bilbao Spain, she gets all the BBC programmes via internet, and some via satellite, but web is more reliable. She is on the coastal side of the mountains, near the French border.
Whereabouts in France are you going?
There are some illegal? programs which get around the restrictions, I will try to remember where I found them.
