I have used www.iportal.me for the last 4 years, it costs €50 (less than a € a week) and the service has been great. (Need a PayPal account)

I changed my computer to a 64bit system which did not recognise iportal, I sent an email to customer services and within ten minutes I was watching TV on my new computer.

I use a 5mtr HDMI lead to send the picture from my laptop to my TV, the quality is great and I have full use of all UK channels and most on catchup are there for 30days or more so I can watch what I want when I want without having a recording box under my TV

Works great for me.

PS, I also take my laptop on holiday with me and as long as you find internet connection you can watch live UK TV, see their faces in Bangkok when your watching UK TV, its great.

My Lamnia VPN connection still works fine and am often able to stream to two different TVs at the same time .... we've a 4MB connection from CYTA and this is OK for 95% of the time via Lamnia.- and watching BBc and ITV. I admit that getting Channel 4 and 5 takes a bit more working at though. As for the radio, I now use a Roberts wifi radio and delight in listening to radio4 again all the time - though of course all computers can get the radio channels without the need for VPN etc.. If anyone is having problems or doubts then give Lamnia a try for a month and see how it works for you......http://www.lamnia.co.uk?xyz=8

Apologies if this is a bit out of date ...

FilmOn is no longer a free option and neither will anything be of any decent quality as bandwidth costs money... You get what you pay for!

as an alternative, try the new virtual cable sytem of eltel.tv. This gives a seven day free trial of 26 odd UK channels plus 17 radio stations and direct connectivity to the big four catch up services - bbc iplayer etc.
