The Local _ Telecoms _ How to receive BBC TV

Posted by: Tio 6.Nov.2016, 12:53 PM

I'm sure this subject has been aired before but I tried "search" but nothing came up. Who uses what to get BBC TV? We currently use a dongle which proves quite expensive. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thank you.

Using a VPN on a PC works fine, then you can access IPlayer.

Especially on the West coast, a very large satellite dish also does the trick.

Using a Ø120cm. dish and a Freesat box. Works fine except in snow and heavy cloud with rain - which can be over the UK or Sweden. With it over both then very little gets through - such as yesterday and last night. Under normal reception you can even get BBC & ITV in HD - such as today and tonight.

PC connect to TV via HDMI then download Film On app in Windows store.
Or http://www.ukipvpn.com/ which is free.

You reallyneed broadband, then you can use mobdro for all UK channels and then another for films and series is Exodus kodi

You can also use the Smart DNS from www.overplay.net. Within their admin, you can select which country your PC appears to be in for different channels (i.e. Amazon UK or USA). If you use this together with a free dynamic DNS such as NoIP, it's possible to configure this with some routers - so the router appears to be in different countries and you can access the TV on all of your wifi devices.

Or just go to http://www.expatvision.net and purchase their box and monthly subscription and watch every uk channel going if you want.

Been using this for years now and it works fine as long as you have good internet.

I would suggest the VPN alternative, make sure you choose a provider without too many users to avoid getting blacklisted.

The Filmon app is the simplest. It requires no VPN for standard definition. VPN works very well if you want to access BBC iPlayer for catchup TV.

As of May, Filmon seems to be no longer available free of charge.

The app on my phone still allows to me to access the channels without cost. There is a cost to see it on HD on a computer and for free with adverts. I recommend using Filmon from your smartphone and stream it to your TV. I have an Apple phone and stream via Apple TV.

I use StrongVPN to watch BBC iPlayer. There are many streaming sevrices that you can subscribe to get sports TV from Sky, BT and the main UK channels.

Awesome thread! Always had troubles getting UK TV from Sweden/Slovakia/Denmark/Germany or wherelse I have lived :-)

Expressvpn, and they use their own dns servers. Most other vpn companies require 3rd-party dns servers, which may not be encrypted at all defeating the whole point of having a vpn.

Works for Japan. They refuse to let Islam gain a toehold in their country as the Japanese government sees Islam as a destabilizing force. Can you blame them?


The simple truth is that the jihadists are practicing Islam exactly as Mohammad would have instructed (and has through his teachings). Killing infidels is an integral part of the religion.

I was in southern Wisconsin today and saw the Amish out working their fields and was struck by the thought of how similar the Amish are to Muslims. Both shun modern society because their religion tells them that it is evil. Both are clannish and shun those who leave their respective faiths. Both have rather puritanical beliefs when it comes to sex. Men of both faiths sport beards and the women of both faiths cover up from head to toe.

But the big difference is have you ever heard of an Amish terrorist? No, because the Amish believe in peace, and the Muslims (the so called religion of peace) do not.



As soob as I say that, they prompted me to pay after 5 mins on filmon. Oh well, but VPN is the way to go in my experience.

Go on the net and buy a kodi box with exodus. I have all the UK programmes and thousands of films and series for the cost of the box (about £40)

What you can do that since it been a long time Exodus was taken down a lot of times and then one way or another it managed to make a successful comeback. Now what you can do is you can find Exodus on repos like Kodil, XVBMC.

Why do you feel the need for UK TV though?
