Watch UK TV abroad for free

Because of our age we don't go clubbing anymore and, as my wife is disabled, sometimes prefer to watch TV in the evening when on holiday. Does anyone know of any way to receive UK TV abroad providing there is an available WiFi signal? Thank you.

Thank you Beta. Appreciate your time.

I am grateful for Beta's suggestion.Checked out VPNs but they appear to be subscription based. Does anyone have experience of Slingbox for accessing TV outside the UK? The advantage is a single payment purchase but do such devices work? I have read a couple of reviews, which mentioned the disadvantage of "tying up the TV". Any ideas what this means? Otherwise the reviews seemed favourable.

The main problem is that you have no control over the quality and speed of the wifi system in the holiday apartment. Best to record some programs and take them with you.
