            Yes December 19th, 2009 is the date set for all European broadcasters having to offer cross border services.

            The BBC has a history of performing rights and residual payment restrictions for its domestic broadcasts around Europe.

            Details of the EU Directive is found here:
            http://ec.europa.eu/avpolicy/reg/avms/index_en.htm

            For what it is worth, right now you can get BBCNews and Sky News via high quality broadband at these web sites:

            http://www.myp2pforum.eu/live-tv/41045-british-tv.html
            http://www.veetle.com/

            (Yes, I know these are Internet, not satellite broadcasts, but most discussion of watching TV in Crete has been in this section of the forum.)

            We will have to wait and see if there are changes to British domestic broadcasters use of satellite transponders serving southern Europe …

                Hi,
                Yep, a VPN is a Virtual Private Network and provides your computers with a UK IP address (Your computer’s equivalent of a UK telephone number)

                Once you connect your PCs to the Internet via a UK based VPN you will be able to access UK Catch Up and Live Streaming TV Channels such as BBC Iplayer, ITV Player etc. You also have the option to subscribe to a U.S. IP address that will allow you to watch similar channels based in the U.S.A.

                We use VPNUK (http://www.vpnuk.net). It costs us £9 per month for 2 x concurrent connections. For example this allows me to watch the footie on my laptop connected to the television whilst the wife watches Strictly Come Dancing on another machine. Bliss!

                Hope this makes sense. PM me if you need any help

                All the best

                Tim
