The subject of BBC iPlayer being available to UK Roku users appears to be all over the techy blogs this morning.
I have a USA Roku box (Netgear XD) from eBay and I am in the UK - I only use it with Roksbox as a media streamer, I have no interest in any US channels, but now BBC iPlayer is available I would like to add it.
How do I make my US Roku box think it is a UK box? Clearly there are no IP issues accessing iPlayer, as I am in the UK.
My Roku account, that I originally set up, thinks I am in the US - no surprise as I set it up 6 months ago. BUT oddly enough if I go to http://www.roku.com/uk - click Sign In, then Register Account - it STILL gives me a new US account even though I am in the UK and BEFORE I tell it what box I have - is that part of the Roku site broken? What are people with genuine UK boxes doing if the website doesn't let you create a UK account?
