Hi everyone. Going out to Dubai shortly and am trying to get a few things sorted.

I have searched the board for old posts about this and understand that NetFlix doesn't work in Dubai, but some have said that Amazon Prime's downloads do. Amazon own LoveFilm so I was wondering if anyone knows if that works in Dubai? They have a 30 day free trial on so I'm inclined to give it a go but want to get it set up before I leave so I can have tech help at home:)

I would like to be able to watch films and BBC iPlayer, and use Skype. If I've understood correctly, I'm going to need a VPN to do this, and this can't be discussed on the forums for various reasons ;) But if any of you are able to PM me with recommendations for a VPN service, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you for your time.

NetFlix does work as long as you are using the same "technique mentioned" for Skype.
Oh, I didn't realise - thank you, will look into it. There is a Group deal on today to get 3 months of lovefilm for about £6, so I might do that anyway.
Thanks for your help:)

If you find a "solution" like many have, you might find a good friend who has a Sky Package in the UK and ask to use their online "Sky Go" sign in.
