Every now and then I like to watch the odd transmission on UK TV and in Spain but I don't have Sky (I have Digital +).
The past couple of Sundays I have been trying to watch the BBC coverage of Formula 1 in preference to the Spanish coverage.
I have been accessing BBC iplayer via expatshield which is free but it suffers a lot of streaming and stop/starting which makes it hard to watch - a bit bloody annoying really!
I'm not an IT expert but I don't think the problem is with me becuase I have a fairly good 6MB service so I was wondering if the problem is that too many people overseas are logging onto expatshield such that proxy server is overloaded or is it a BBC problem. When I have watched the odd (not so popular) program then reception is fine?
When I was in Spain during the last worldcup I watched some of the English games on UKTVGlobal and if I recall that was much better but I think you need to pay GBP5 per month etc.
Anyway anyone any ideas for watching the odd UK transmission in Spain with acceptable quality etc.or should I go back and try UKTVGlobal again?
