    So start a thread, let us know how that works out for you.

    There is no "completely legit" way us US types saw it.

    ok, so what is it?

    Unless you mean the very few people that live on the northern border and pick it up out of canada (assuming it aired there)

    Please, if I'm incorrect and missing some legit way that a person in the US saw the showing, then please correct me, this cat and mouse crap is boring.

    also, it's not a "rule" as JohnB coyly put , it is flat out listed in the sticky.

    No one hijacked a thread, except perhaps you who are not talking about anything related to British TV Shows in that post.

    (I also notice that your post had one line of comment, and 3 lines advertising another site and your status of "Forum Admin" on that site (I am so impressed!) )

    Those in the US that from the UK with a tv license could have used their VPN back home to stream from the BBC iplayer

    I don't see the attraction but my wife loved the two Mrs Brown specials that were on over the holidays.

    Fail.


    Sorry, but that is NOT 'completely legit'. It's borderline at best as you cannot legally view BBC programming outside the UK (unless it's licensed to BBCA, PBS or another broadcaster, or you buy it on DVD).

    I don't think "legally" is quite the correct term and there are ways to "legally" watch without the iPlayer (such as recording one and watching it on a plane for example).

    Anyway rather than people deciding on whether the rules should be applied I thought a PM to a mod was the best option so we'll see what they say. With all the eps airing in the UK before any here and potential spoilers creeping around other threads it really makes sense to me to have threads. But it's not our call.

    We can, in the UK section, the "eps in the UK airing before any here" is why the rule was created.
