    I don’t want to bang on about this (I have posted twice on the issue) but if you’re wanting to watch the BBC and need a backup/alternaive to satellite reception this is the way to go. All that is required is a Chromecast dongle which costs just 35 euros and plugs into the HDMI socket, and a subscription to Unblock.US (3 euros per month) or similar DNS redirecting service. The only complicated bit is having to circumvent the fact that the Chromecast is hardcoded to use Google DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. However, there is a simple workaround which is described here: http://support.unblock-us.com/customer/portal/questions/1385727-chromecast and here: http://support.unblock-us.com/customer/portal/questions/1385727-chromecast. It consists of configuring your rooter to use the BlockUS DNS servers and then using IP rooting to direct the 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 addresses to a false IP. When the Chromecast fails to reach the Google DNS servers it falls back on the rooter configered DNS (i.e. unblockus) and its internal iPlayer will work. Perfect HD playback remotely controlled from your PC, tablet or phone. If you have decent broadband, I can’t recommend this highly enough.
