Thanks for the information. This sounds interesting. Does it allow one to see the major US ntwks?

Certainly UK, US I don't know cannot be picked up when in UK.. All Internet options come with threat of viruses or other nasties on your pc iPad so be careful. Do US not have digital TV?

As people have said using the internet and a website (Vipbox or frontrowsports - look on Google) you can watch very good Flash streams. You will generally have to use a PC or Mac for this, however, there are some internet browsers now available for the iPad that enable you to watch Flash videos. There will be lots of pop-up adverts but once you close them and maximise the screen it's generally a good quality alternative.

As for live TV you can use a VPN (Google it if you're not sure of what it is) and you can subscribe to a service that will then help you mask your IP address and look like you're in (whatever country you want to see the TV from) a different location. I have watched RTE and BBC (live through this) and also catch up services, such as: 4OD, iPlayer, ITV player and 5 on demand.

For general series that you may want to watch (away from terrestrial UK TV) like the shows broadcast on Sky Atlantic or that have been bought in from HBO etc then watchseries is very good.

So many good solutions means my Italian is being hampered - but at least I don't have to watch Italian TV - which, let's face it...is awful!

VIPBOX is a website for live streaming. Another good online site is 'watchseries'

You can use filmon.tv to get all the BBC /itv/channels 4+5. Free, no adverts (other than the actual ones on the relevant channels), no signing up or registering. And best of all, no need for any proxy or vpns etc.

Smile UK TV for free!

Hi guys, new to the forum - must say it's packed full of useful info. Was having browse through and came across this post.
My husband and I have recently found a website which provides a tonne of UK channels for free; everything from BBC 1,2,3, all the ITV, C4, dave, really etc. You dont need to hide your ip address either. Give it a go, works great from here in Fuerteventura!
wwwdotwatchallchannelsdotcom/britishdotTVdothtml Anywhere - Live TV Online For Free
There's also a catchup website too, so if you miss your programme on catchup (if it has expired), then it might be here too. Hope this helps.
wwwdotukdotwatchallchannelsdotcom Catch up - British Dramas, Soap, Documentaries
I have put the word DOT instead of a full stop since it wouldnt let me post this unless i wrote 5 posts! Sure this is to stop spam, but this is a really useful website so i hope you dont mind. Just replace all the words with a full stop where you see DOT.
