    If I understand this right I can't view anything on iPlayer outside of the UK. I am currently in Australia and would love to be able to watch BBC shows (instead of the rubbish that is on here) but it seems it is not possible.

    Are there any plans to make this more widely available for those outside the UK - OR, is it currently available nad I am missing something??

    Sorry guys, it's just not going to happen. There are too many issues with copyrights etc (like with music featured in programmes) and the price of sorting out an international service would probably be too high for the BBC (though it would be more likely that BBC Worldwide would sort out such a service.

    You can change your IP address (or something like that) to a British one but I wouldn't be able to tell you how to do it and it's probably illegal! In the mean time I'd suggest watching BBC Prime/Entertainment etc in the mean time!
