Quote: there are many free options to watch UK TV, so recommending paying for a service seems like you may have some invested interest with the company.
I'm not sure how you get to that opinion Simon but most people on this discussion so far have been talking about Hola which is free and allows your computer to hide your IP address and access Tv etc worldwide . I can keep up with a favourite US series as it airs in the USA from France thanks to Hola. I can't understand why people pay for a VPN service when Hola is there for free. Filmon is a great service
My main question to this discussion is how the android box works as come November the TV in our house will be too far from the Free box to connect despite having a 5 m HDMI cable and a one off payment for an android box sounds like the answer for us.
