Proxy Servers to allow iPlayer from overseas

Recently there has been a lot of talk around using proxy servers to watch services like iPlayer when you are outside of the UK.  If you are unsure of what a proxy server is then I suggest you head over to this article on wikipedia so you can understand them a bit more.

I myself have had to use these services before, whilst I am at the 9-5 job, where one day you can access content on the BBC site, to the next day it is telling us that we are outside the UK because of the IP address we are coming from.

Listed below there are three services that you can use to mask your IP Address and replace with an IP Address that will be from the UK so you can access these services.


As always I am interested in your thoughts so if you have any comments or feedback then please feel free to add any comments to the post, or you can mail me  here.
