View Full Version : The joys of SlimServer and AlienBBC

2007-06-10, 08:47
Well I'm on holiday in France, and managing to listen to the Roland Garros tennis final (French Open) BBC commentary. Since the BBC check the location of the recipient (they can't 'for contractual reasons' distribute their content outside the UK when it's certain sporting events), the 'Listen Live' on the BBC website cuts me off.

Cue SlimServer - I log into my machine, and use SoftSqueeze to stream the feed via my home SlimServer. The BBC think I'm in the UK, and I get the tennis. I love it when technology actually *works* :)
