You will need DNS or VPN service to get round the BBC iPlayers geo-locking.

I do not know of any such service you can run on the atv in parallel with the iPlayer, so any help out there from someone who has done that ?

I have stuck with using a macbook and a VPN to acccess and download (essential) iPlayer content and even then you have to be careful not to connect without the VPN or it will block content until you dump their cookies and restart a clean browser session.
