Basically, get their phone and internet service, and then you can access their own private streaming service for the UK TV channels….probably like their own “VPN / proxy” service…..ie rebroadcasting but by internet and not land based transmitters…...
Dont forget you can get ITV1 (with a sky card) and the BBC Sports streams on a small 60-80cm dish! And most of the other channels they list also (tiny, Chart Show, Five, Sky News) and with a sky card and small dish Fiver, Five USA, and with a sky card and HD box ITV HD….yup some World Cup matches in HD on a small dish!!!
....you only need a “big dish” for the “free to air” (ie no sky card) BBC1,2,3,4, ITV2,3,4, C4, E4, M4 and Five.
Makes you wonder why they say they can do it legally here in Spain (and make a profit and by not paying for the right to use the channels), and yet the UK broadcasters cannot…so third party “streamers” make a profit off someone else back….(one of the main uk based TVcatchup is also not yet available outside the UK!!)
It could be the fact that Spain “rebroadcast laws” are a bit more relaxed and the server is based in Spain and not the UK….?
But then I am sure I read that EU law prevents changing the platform of a broadcast (ie TV to internet) without permission from the channels.
And maybe by saying you get it “free” or as an “extra” to their service they are not really profiting from it…....
Maybe Jurdy can shed some more light onto this….wherever you are!!!
