UKTVAccess is good. i have been using it for around 2 years now…It will connect you to a server in UK and there is a very small fee like 3.99 quid monthly but at least you don't get the pop ups and adds that you get with the free proxies.

not necessarily what you want... but Dr. Who is on Netflix streaming. ;)

Only other way that I've read about somewhere at some point in time is using bbc iplayer (not even sure they use that any more since I haven't looked at that site in eons)... I don't know if it still works or not, but some people that had to get there UK TV fix used proxies to watch the Iplayer all over the world, in much the same way that some of the threads around here in the forums are talking about how people are watching ustvnow in the US by proxying their way out of the US when they sign up, etc.

The BBC iPlayer was just added to the WD Live player, but it's only available to UK residents :(

BBC News streams live 24/7 on Roku, it's a private channel. The code to add the channel is BBCN.
