Oh I see sorry I am not good with computers. Thanks for the info.

That is why you need a UK based proxy server like MPN (My Private Network). I am currently connected to it (as well as my regular Cyprus ISP) and can access all of the movies and documentaries on Blinkbox.

MPN only acts as a platform/portal allowing you to access sites that are designed for UK residents only. For TV & films, you need to visit one of the sites that shows films. Just Google "watch free films/documentaries/drama online UK" and you will see a number of sites.
Eg this site has over 250 free films to watch: http://www.blinkbox.com/Movies/Free
51 documentaries: http://www.blinkbox.com/Movies/Free/Documentary
This is also a good site: http://www.tvchannelsfree.com/
I have put all my sites into favourites folders, ie Movies, documentaries, drama etc.
It just needs a bit of time and patience and soon you will have access to more channels (and viewing) than you ever imagined:-)

Dear pdobbo

I am subscribed to My Private Network, but nowhere on their home page does it tell you how to access the films???? Can you please advise.

Many thanks.
