TIP: Watch Live BBC TV using WiFi [UK Only]

Simply visit http://www.bbc.co.uk/mobile/live/tv/ in your mobile browser.  It works quite well. It is recommended that you connect via WiFi rather than 3G.

 

Unfortunately the site is restricted to UK users only.

Re: TIP: Watch Live BBC TV using WiFi [UK Only]

I get "Sorry, Progammes cannot be watched outside the UK".  My wifi basestation is on Virgin Media Broadband (in the UK).

 

Anyone else with a similar setup?

Re: TIP: Watch Live BBC TV using WiFi [UK Only]

I can't watch bbc in the uk because they think I'm overseas. The bbc say this is because blackberry uses a French IP address in UK. I love my BB Bold but this can be seriously restricting. Surely there are enough BB users in the UK to give us a local IP address.

Are you on BES?  If so, your internet connection will be via your company gateway - even via WiFi I believe.  I have the same issue (but a different country).  I wish the BBC had a better solution for us.

I use a Sky home WiFi. Not only can I not get bbc live tv, my home internet won't work with the phone's WiFi on. My network is 3 and this seems to happen on most networks and most wifis. The problem must be the foreign IP address.
