This is primarily directed for British Ex Pats like me living abroad but this site im going to recommend also has French, German, Italian, Spanish/Latin and even Arabic content too.
This site is 100% free to try (you'll be able to watch any channel you want for about 10 mins) and works on Mac/PC, Android and iPhone/iPad platforms.
Watch live TV. If you like Hulu, TVCatchup and Zattoo for streaming movies you'll love Live TV on FilmOn.com
So far, im very impressed and have been trying it out on my marina WIFI
connection in Spain
with no problems. For the UK audience, you get ALL the main channels, BBC, ITV, CH4, etc and even 'Dave' which has some great shows like Top Gear
, QI, etc.
No, of course, it's not free but at 149 GBP for the year, it's not expensive either.
Up untill now, where i've not had a TV hook up, i've been paying 60 GBP per year for a UK 'proxy server' that gives me a UK IP add' to allow me to watch online content like BBC iPlayer but Filmon gives you much more choice and also nice features like being able to set your computer to actualy record
content as well to watch later.
Like I said, it's FREE to try so give it a look.
(no, I have no connection with this company by the way)
