    watching free-to-air on ipad

    So I've downloaded the Puffin app that allows me to view flash while browsing, however I want to watch TV shows on the channel 7 website (PLUS7 - Catch up TV - Watch full episodes - Yahoo!7 TV). Low and below, the opening advertisement plays fine but the content won't because "I am trying to watch the content from overseas".

    Obviously the Puffin servers are not based in Australia. Does anyone have an idea on how to get around this problem, or can suggest another app that allows me to set my server country?


    EDIT - I see from multiple posts that remote accessing from my ipad to a PC/laptop is the other option people suggest. I would have tried that if I had a PC/laptop at home (which I don't). I'm guessing then from the lack other suggestions from this and various other forums that there is no solution to my problem....

    EDIT #2 – Yes I know about the ABC app (fantastic app) but that doesn’t help me here...

    Is there a "yahoo!7" app in the app store, that may help. Since I live in the u.s. I am unable to have access to check.

    The 7news app only allows access to news broadcasts (as the name would suggest)... not regular TV shows. I'm in NSW, but I don't know how that info could help answer the question.
