BBC website streaming

It says it's for UK only but maybe someone can tell non-UK people how to access it by hiding their location.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tenn...io/default.stm

Anyhow, I was watching the Hantuchova vs. Camerin match but it's stopped by rain and they're showing highlights of the 2004 final.

I'm using Windows Media Player and there's a problem with the sound but only for the commentators. Their voices are slowed down! They sound like whales. I'm giggling a lot because of that.

It's the same, I think. A lot of pauses and buffering.

Is anyone else having the same slowed down sound problem with Windows Media Player?

"Beeeeeeeep!" "Faaaauuuullttt!"

It's the 2004 final right now and Maria's and Serena's grunts and shrieks sound particularly amusing and the commentators are hilarious.

I doubt you can ŽhideŽ your location as every computer has its very own IP-adress which tells the country your accessing from.

You can hide your location for sure. I know for a fact that people use it to watch the US-only ABC stream of the TV series Lost from outside the USA.
