Thanks Littleheaven,

We mostly download from BBC iPlayer but access Australian sites and occassionaly a Polish site. For ITV we can use PC or pad till they release an App. Easier than I thought it would be.

Scotdownunder: Thanks Littleheaven,

I don't think you'll have any conflicts, then. Not sure about the Polish site but if you request it, Unotelly may be able to add it for you. Otherwise there's always AirPlay.

 

Another good app is TVPlayer. It's a bit buggy but it's free and offers live streaming of several UK channels, including ITV. Quality isn't great, but it's useful in a pinch. I watched Homes Under The Hammer on it the other day. SD but watchable.

 

I have to say I've been delighted with the AppleTV 4, and as more apps get released for it, it's just going to get more and more useful. It's addressed a lot of the usability requirements I was hoping it would have. The Siri function is pretty cool, too. I like the "what did he just say?" query which rewinds the stream 30 seconds and puts subtitles up for the bit it repeats (if available). Invaluable when you have a 9-year old who keeps bursting in during shows and shouting all over the dialogue :o)

Thanks all.
I went through unblock us, and think I have the hang of things. What is odd, is I get blocked by US Netflix... But only sometimes...? ANyone else have that?
