WARNING - using a Proxy Server to bypass BBC restrictions!

Because the Free to Air Television channels previously available in southern France and Spain are no longer available, many people are considering accessing these channels via the Internet.

Some television programs are meant to be available via the Internet only to people resident in the UK - this is monitored by a simple check on the IP address of the user's computer - and access is denied if the computer has a non-UK IP address.

Therefore many people are tempted to use a Proxy Server to hide their real IP address, but there are dangers in this approach - see viewtopic.php?f=13&t=640&p=1582#p1582
