Watching UK TV in Dubai
 
Hi,

Does anyone know how to access UK television in Dubai? We're happy to pay a subscription.

There are various options hitting our social media feeds but it's hard to be sure if they're scams or not. If anyone can recommend something, we'd love to hear from you.

Many thanks,

Hi,
Amazon Fire tv works fine in UAE.
This can then have BBC Iplayer, ITV player, ch4, ch5 etc. downloaded onto it.
Cheers
Steve

Thanks. Do you need to set it up in the UK or can you download everything you need here without IP address problems? And avoiding the obvious fix for that?

Hi,
Checkout unlocator.com - this does not need to use the obvious fix.
All setup here.

Not true, this is a service that is not allowable under the TRA regulations - if you look at the Stickies on the Dubai forum index you'll find a thread specifically about that subject.

I see only a sticky about VPNs. Unotelly is NOT a VPN.

They may offer that services we can not mention but they also offer DNS services which are the same as unlocator.

OK, I stand 50% corrected, but my stance on the other 50% remains applicable to their other offering.
