Be Nice to Visit British and NZ Sites and Watch Their Shows
« on: December 07, 2013, 08:38:43 AM »
I've yet to find a proxy program (free or otherwise) that lets me watch TV shows directly on BBC Channel websites (I'm always detected as not being in their region). The proxies always seem to have everything but the UK and New Zealand (they both have great TV shows freely available to the public in their respective regions). Plus, I feel a case of dementia coming on whenever I try to configure those  proxy programs. Wondering if you could could come up with something targeting those regions with a noob-friendly interface? Thanks, Shane. If it's too much trouble don't worry about it.

Thank you! I'll test it out. Never heard of this addon. People in review complain about it slowing down media but everything seems fine for me. Of course, I have 1000MB down and 40+ upload speed. :) So far works flawlessly for BBC just not for NZ TV One. Oh, well.
