Yes VPN connections do really seem to be the way forward providing that you net speed is up to scratch. changeipvpn com seems to play all the channels well enough.

No.
C5HD is a "free to view" channel, and requires a sky viewing card (either "freesatfromsky" or subscription card) to watch it......at the moment

So a "free to air" box will not be able to get C5HD while it is still "free to view"

yes, with " a sky hd box and a no subscription card , the ones that cost 20 pound " you will get C5HD...

at least until if / when it too moves to a UK beam on the new satellites, when you may lose it again due to your location and required dish size.

if your not paying the subscription, your not going to get hd channels, therefore the channel 5 hd which people still have at the moment, will obviously not be available un paid.

C5HD is available without subscription.

But it does require a Sky card, like a "freesatfromsky / free to view" card

BBC1HD, BBCHD (soon to become BBC2HD) , ITV1HD C4HD and NHKWorld HD are all available for free with no sky card.

All other HD channels require a Sky HD subscription.

You need an identity cloaker which will mask you Spanish IP address and make it look like you are using the Internet from the UK, take a look at www.identycloaker.com I have it at the moment bought a months subscription for £13 and can watch bbc iplayer itv player 4od I think it's cheaper the longer you sign up for, or search google for identity cloaker
