I live in Crete. Is it possible to see BBC TV programmes on my PC? I look forward to rugby matches and F1 next season. Not interested in films nor in downloading music. I don't know anyone in UK who has a DVD recorder who could record programmes live.
If you have a solution, please know that my internet "skills" go no further than double-clicking on Explorer and reading online newspapers. buying from Amazon and sending simple emails.

There is a way click here, but it is a touch complicated. Otherwise, I believe iplayer is unavailable outside the UK.

You could try the BBC iPlayer this shows programmes for seven days normally, from its first viewing. click here

As I said, iplayer is not available outside the UK (or so I'm told by my children who are abroad).

I bow to your knowledge re IPlayer but wonder how the IPlayer detects that someone is "abroad". Does anyone know ?
