BBC Olympic Coverage? No.

Postby tempo10 » Fri Jul 27, 2012 9:38 am

Woke up this morning to the sound of "Due to rights restrictions, this program is unavailable" on BBC Radio 2

Worst alarm sound ever.

Tried to listen on the laptop with iPlayer and got the same thing. Turns out that the Olympic committee has decided to ban broadcasting of the games outside of the UK through the Beeb:

So is this going to mean zero BBC for then next 17 days? And no, I don't want to listen to BBC Cymru!

Has anybody got any suggestions to get around this?

You would need to subscribe to a VPN service (e.g. Overplay VPN) to emulate a UK IP address on your laptop.
