(Other threads on this general topic seem to be locked). 

I started a free trial with unblock-us and then manually set their DNS server addresses in the network setup of my Philips 3D Bluray player and I'm now able to watch everything available in the BBC iPlayer. 

Looks like I'll be signing up for the $4.99 / month. 

This is awesome. I'm about to try it with the ITV player, too. 

Might try Netflix as well.....but so far I generally prefer UK TV content for the little TV I actually watch. 

Besides...I have "Jetflix" (via Android)..and that seems to cover all the US content I want to watch.

Don't forget that with Unblock-US you can change the region on the website to the UK to give you more British programming in Netflix

Thanks. I'll have a look at that. 

I can't see anything with the ITV Player on the Philips 3D Bluray player as the version of flash on Linux in   the bluray player is too old (according to ITV)....and I can't upgrade it. 

But it works well on the PC provided I avoid peak times in the UK......
