I do not know about tvcatchup itself, but Lamnia is working fine for watching BBC streaming live from the iplayer website, and using iplayer to catch up on previously shown programs; watching ITV live via the ITV website and watching previously shown probrams via the catchup website; watching previously shown Channel 4 programs via 4od and channel 4 live via Zattoo; watching previously shown channel 5 via Demand 5 and channel 5 live. I never use other than the main sites and use favourites to select which station i want to watch - what's the point in going through another provider when the channels provide their own feeds directly.

Hey johnners, you seem to be an expert in this could you help me out and tell me how to use a proxy please to view TVCatchup?

Thank you so much :)

Hi Paul,

The website name TV Catchup is a little misleading as the majority of what it offers is live streaming of UK TV channels and the plus 1 hour services. It isn't quite the same as 4OD, or the BBC iPlayers catchup service.

For those using tvcatchup they are promising HD streaming very soon. Whether our connection speeds here in Cyprus will be good enough we will have to wait and see, or not as the case may be!

losing catch up for me is not really any big deal, when i left the uk there were 5 channels and catch up is what me and the wife did monday and tuesday cos we were to razzed fri/sat/sun.

you can always watch it when its on.

I have the same problem with tv catchup using i-portal but they are working on it, bbc is no problem nor is itv player. film on is probably your best bet for live streaming

Just checked again at 2029, and BBC i-player, itv catch-up, 4OD and demand 5 are all working OK through my Lamnia VPN connection.

Other services may well be blocking VPN's and proxies, but the main channels are OK through either catch-up or stream directly from the websites (apart from C4). Proxies are very often blocked I found in the past before I discovered Lamnia at http://www.lamnia.co.uk?xyz=8

i guess we are back to filmon then! I have to say that I am impressed with the new version, although they seem to let you watch less now without the subscription!
