    Have satellite broadband in my house so in turn my iPad, laptop etc think they are in Italy as that is where the dish pings to .. As a result of this I can't use iplayer and similar things as it says not available outside the UK Anyone know a way of me tricking my iPad into thinking its in the UK. Even tho it is ..?

    I'm in Austria, and can trick my iPad with a VPN to thinking its in gb, so I'm able to watch bbc iplayer, itv, channel 4...
    I do though have normal broadband, not sure but would think you could set up a VPN with sat broadband. Hope you have success.
    Just google: VPN iPad uk
