    My niece is having to work abroad for several months.
    Her firm has put her in a hotel with a really fantastic WiFi system.. massive bandwidth and she has been told by reception that they prefer Brits to use the WiFi to receive telly as it is easier than them trying to pipe it around on the aerial system ( Yer I know, but we are talking Hungary here ! )

    She is a sky subscriber but due to her location and IP it is being blocked.

    I know there is a way to kid the system but am blowed if I can remember what it is..

    Anyone know ?

    Not great with this but my brother had the same problem with his house in Spain and asked on here how to get round it, was told you needed a proxy server by JJ and he recommended one at the time but can't remember so hopefully he will be along to help as I think he uses it to watch UTD games :Rofl1:

    If you stream TV from these sites, do you use a great about of data? If so I guess it would cost quite a bit. Wouldn't it? :Smile:

    No buffering?

    Surely this is very much dependant upon the internet speed and the power of the computer?
