www.tvproxy.com is also a site that will give you an ip address.

I use it and have never had any problems

Thank you so much for the information, and the web link, I now know why I can't access it.

You can only access BBC iPlayer if you are in the UK, as it checks first that your IP Address is in the UK.Outside of the UK, you need to have VPN access to make iPlayer think you are in the UK.There are a few different web sites that offer this - http://www.uktvabroad.com/ is one of these

hi to access iplayer in cyprus you need to use a uk vpn which costs around £6.50 per month and route your internet through the vpn so it looks like your internet connection is in the uk or buy onspeed which is about €24 for the year and then you can access iplayerbut it dosent work with itv or channel 4
