Dani, my sister, being in Ireland like yourself, can't use the iplayer either. It drives her mad.
Someone more technie than me might know more about it than I do, but isn't there something you can download that kids the iplayer etc into thinking your ip is from the UK? That's what Dani's issue is, the iplayer is picking up that her ip isn't British and it's blocking her.
I watched the documentary again this morning while having my breakfast. It was just as good the second time around.
I have heard of those Teejay,but the problem is it all seems very complicated!One time I downloaded one program that someone recommended to me,and it turned out it didn't work for mac computers (and of course,that's what I own!
) Another time I tried something else another girl recommended to me and,while I think it did do the job with the ip,it slowed down my connection so much that the video wouldn't play anyway!
I'm sure people can get these things working,but not being very technologically good,I haven't had much luck so far!
Brilliant - enjoy!
