@Polishboy Step by step instructions are provided. But in essence, you download a client that sits in your systray, a zip is sent to you by proxyplayer with some settings files in it. You put those files in a folder, boot up the client, and hit connect.
When you’ve done that, you’re connected to another machine in the UK, and you are effectively surfing the net from the UK.
The above is called a VPN, or Virtual Private Network.
This is not to be confused with a Proxy Server, which in my experience, doesn’t allow you to watch live events on the Beeb, but you can watch iPlayer on demand programs and a number of others. VPN allows you to do more or less anything you want, using a UK internet connection, which is why I keep my account active.
