At last – access to BBC iPlayer and more

Posted: July 22, 2009 in internet, media, Technology

If you’re a BBC fan but not resident in the UK, you’ll no doubt have been long frustrated at not being able to use the BBC’s brilliant iPlayer, which allows you to watch any BBC content from the last seven days as often as you want. Sure, there are complicated geeky ways of setting up proxy this and that but now My Private Network makes it really easy. It sets up a virtual private network tunnel that allows you not only unlimited access to iPlayer but also on-demand video and live TV content from other UK channels such as ITV, Channel Four, and Five. It costs about $8 a month but well worth it if you want to see good quality UK TV. It’s available for Windows, Mac and Linux and literally takes about 10 seconds to set up. You’ll never have to sit through those out of date BBC America re-runs again.

    I’ve been using a vpn service from for ages now for this. The nice thing about this one is that it also gives u a vpn for the US aswell…Connect to the US vpn and watch as much hulu as you want….and it’s 100 bucks a year..

    Sounds good – My Private Network also offers a US service that includes Hulu, ABC, CBS and Fox for about $8 or you can do a global plan for about $15.
