    I'm not sure whether it's a problem with my computer or just a problem with the iplayer in general, but when i try to watch the Scottish variations of both BBC One and BBC Two, it always seems to default me to the BBC London channels.

    This wouldn't be as much of a problem if i had easy access to the main tv in my household, plus the analog tv signal is awful in my area and the freeview signal is at least 6 months away from being turned on at my local transmitter

    I don't understand what you mean about the Freeview signal not being switched on in your local area. It may be the case that the analogue has not been switched off yet, but that doesn't mean that freeview and other digital options won't work.

    For example, I live in north west England and we are fully switched over, meaning we can only get digital signals, whether on Freeview, Freesat, Cable or Satellite options.

    My family live north east England and haven't yet had the switchover. However, they can receive analogue and digital channels - not just analogue.

    To answer your original question though - have you tried using the regional drop down box to find the region you need?

    Live streaming is only available for the London area version for each BBC channel, wherever you live in the UK and whatever region you've picked in iPlayer.

    There was a *Live Nations Streaming* proposal some time ago, but it doesn't seem to have arrived in reality yet!

    And I assume that the major cut in the BBC on-line budgets mean that this will make live regional streaming less likely in the future.
