I have missed at least two episodes of Battlestar, and any online source says I can't view it in my location. Anybody have a secret stash somewhere, like online?

Have you tried it with those proxy sites like http://www.atunnel.com/

Or if you can wait, it's on Sky 1 Tuesday night.

I've just read a review of this weeks episode though.. and if I could download it and watch it at work I would...

Last episode was pretty good, but the one before that I totally loved. I ended up watching it four times. I won't spoil anything for you though... ;)

can you do that in reverse? I want to get access to the BBC iPlayer in the US. Tried the TOR router but it is a bit buggy... I listen to the BBC Radio on the iPlayer but I want to watch TV, er, I mean TELLY!

The series is still current in the UK which means one of the channels owns the rights to show it, hence it not being viewable from the website.

Anoying i know.

I tried atunnel.com on bbc iplayer, that doesn't work because it still needs to have a UK domain/location.

Try foxy proxy plugin for Firefox and trick the website into thinking your from the UK or any other location that the site checks for.

Here's a tubetube video on the plugin:

BSG is currently airing on Sky1 in the UK - which means I am only a few days behind the US. So it's quite possible.. but sadly not free!

Sadly, without going the dodgy route, it's quite hard to view native programmes in a foreign country, and that seems to be universal, as the BBC Iplayer also seems to be very popular outside of our shores :D

Because Sky 1 has paid for the rights to show it, and needs it to bring in viewers to pay for it. If it was freely availible online then they would lose money.
