Hey guys,

Really really really want to watch the rugby league cup final on saturday and its on bbc live. But i know i cannot get due to being outside the uk. Any ways around it? Or places in 3 city that may show it?

I always say that the pictures are better on the radio.

Hi mate, I was thinking about this last night so I did some research and what you need to do is to get a UK virtual private network (VPN) account, which masks your Polish I.P. and turns it into a UK one. Then when you have this download Zattoo as it has free-to-air UK TV, which broadcasts over the internet.


It takes some time to do but you can get there eventually and you will have to install Microsoft .NET Framework Version 3.0 Redistributable Package, which is a f***ing pain in the ass to do, but I managed to do it last night in one hour here in Romania.

I managed to get a free German VPN account and had Zattoo set up and the quality was fantastic.
I found this free UK VPN account this morning so they are out there, it is only until the 1st September and then you will need to pay for it after that, but it will allow you to watch the match this weekend.

Yipppyyy, I've got UK TV through the address that I showed you above, one thing though, you cannot open Zattoo through the shortcut on the desktop, what you have to do is to go to program files/ open zattoo, and use the 'zattoo2' shortcut to open it, otherwise it will not work. But I am watching UK TV and the quality is great :)

You can find this on the net anywhere but it doesn't give you live free-to-air TV just news programs from the BBC and is very limited in it's scope, but thanks anyway :)

Hi mate, major problem with that program as the trial has finished with the VPN account; however, I found it and it will be broadcast live here.

I have noticed that this account is working again and myp2p links are not, so if you see this then I should install this quickly.

P.S. You don't need to install the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 3.0 Redistributable Package, just go to the VPN account download the software, choose UK provider in properties, enter Username: cienen

Password: test
Then download zattoo and you will have the match live,
Here are some user names for zattoo:
(username) brendanrodgers2006 (Password) dawset19

(username) nadnerb-sregdor2008 (Password) zattoouser
I made these and don't use them so feel free to use them :)
