That looks reasonably interesting.
But I'm not entirely clear how it works,
or if it would be likely to work well.
Does this give you an account on a server in the UK
to which one can link with VPN?
Is the idea that one would then run iPlayer on this remote machine?
What sort of download/upload speeds would one need
to watch TV with reasonable quality?
My experience running Firefox over OpenVPN in a foreign country
is extremely painful, and certainly would not support TV.
