Hi Mark

i am moving to Dubai in August will definitely be interested in what responses you get here as when I visited earlier I really struggled to find some decent TV!

Good luck!

I you use a VPN you can watch the channels online from back home (wherever home may be!)

You can access some torrent sites in the UK without the need for the veeeepeeeennnnn (not supposed to use them here, so best not to mention them) that JusAdy mentions. Just Google UK tv torrents and steer clear of the dodgy sites;)

If you're not sure about torrents etc just PM me and I'll try and help...

Torrents are really the way to go...hook a laptop up to your television with some A/V cables, and it's like being home.

But if there is a good way to get the US networks and cable channels, I'd be all ears. I find myself even missing the commercials.

I was hoping I'd be able to use websites such as [not sure if I'm allowed to post the links so just google 'Project Free TV' or 'LetMeWatchThis'], which stream all TV shows and films online, usually as soon as they've aired in the US.

Does anyone have experience of using these sites in the UAE - are they blocked?
