Re: uk tv on the laptop

Download FilmON and you should be able to watch UK TV live programmes but not catch up as you will need a VPN for that.

Not tried it myself but have just seen this

TVCatchup Abroad - BritTV

It is supposed to give you catchup free without a vpn.

Re: uk tv on the laptop

Not sure why people suggest 'downloading' FilmOn. Just go to the website (filmon.com) and watch. Also UKTVaccess is good.

Re: uk tv on the laptop

if you've got a decent broadband connection of better than 2mbps, you could subscribe to viewtvabroad.com for 6.50 / month, you can watch loads of english channels on live streaming at the same time they are being broadcast in the uk, you can also play skygo through it as well if you are a sky customer. i tried it in july at our villa, unfortunately are broadband speed is rubbish and it was buffering all time but only because our download speed which is less than 1mbps (if anybody knows whether you can pay extra to turkcell for faster connection i would be interested)....hope this helps Morgan

UKTVaccess is only 3.99 per month and is very good. All UK TV and some movies.

If you download and compare you will see why.

I think you have to sign up to UKTV Access for a minimum amount of time, so as the OP is only visited for a couple of weeks it may not be worthwhile to sign up.
