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.
