    Can't watch the Olympics or closing ceremony live on NBC? Watch on the BBC iPlayer but you need a uk connection. BHW has you covered.
    As a sport nut and with massive interest in the Olympics we found jumping on the BBC iPlayer (the fantastic live video stream solution from the BBC, the main UK Olympics broadcaster) gives you live streams of nearly every major Olympic event. This means you stay up-to-date with all the gold medals before most people in the US even have the opportunity to watch the events—an absurd scenario in a connected world.
    The catch: the BBC's live video streams are region locked, meaning you're supposed to be connected to the internet in the UK to access it. Thankfully, a little know-how will get you around that lock and watching live, silky smooth HD feeds direct from the BBC.

    The solution: Click here to connect with Hide My Ass and save up to 24% offer expires in less than 4 days! OK so they are all about getting access to your US TV whilst aboard but simply change the server location from USA to UK and you’re good to go. After the Olympics switch back to the US or just close your account. No harm no foul.

    [h=2]The HMA difference:[/h]· Extensive geographic coverage with servers in 50 countries to ensure fast connection speeds.
    · One price gets you access to all 265 servers, no complex plans or usage limits.
    · Hide behind 30'000+ usable IP addresses, the largest amount of any VPN service.
    · Each time you connect you get a new IP for increased anonymity.
    · Multiple protocols to use including OpenVPN, L2TP, and PPTP.
    · Access to custom-built HMA! Pro VPN software.
    · No bandwidth limitations.
    · Servers added regularly.
    · Fast and responsive support team.
    · 30 day money back guarantee.

    The BBC's coverage is a lot more widespread than NBC's and the streams seem to work a lot better. Hide My Ass was certainly the fastest and most reliable for us, but there are other solutions available, you just need a UK IP and decent bandwidth. Many of us have VPN’s accounts or even some proxy accounts, if they are more than 6 months old check your terms. 1 hour of streaming is about 500mb, this could kill some monthly accounts dead and in some cases take you into overage.
    Edit: HMA – don’t have any limits on your bandwidth.

    Hmmm....

    I thought HMA was a bit too slow for streaming live things....

    You can also watch the games on www.tvcatchup.com just make an account and you can see over 100 channels from UK for free. You do need a UK IP though.

    I've gotta say, the BBC's coverage of the Olympics has been outstanding. I'm a huge fan of the BBC and happily pay them my TV license every month. The choices on the TV have been great, with numerous live channels and then the option to watch any of the sports interactively through a menu on the red button, with or without commentary. I've been finding it hard to do anything else this past 10 days.

    That's a fair point. I used mine from the US and it worked fine. It always depends on the speed of your line though.

    Isn't there some ways you can modify the headers in Chrome and Firefox. I did this a while back and can view sites in the US which are usually blocked in the UK. There's then no bandwidth issues or proxy problems. I'll do some searching and pop back if I find any results.

    Edit: Nah, it seem the BBC are on the ball with this too. Some more info on it here if anyone wants to try: http://tunlr.net/forums/topic/how-to-bbc-live-streams-using-tunlr/

    Living in the UK, iPlayer is definitely a gemstone.

    Definitely a good option for the people in other countries.

    Agreed, iPlayer is badass, and BBC have done an epic job showing all of the sports.

    Enjoy The Games, courtesy of our tax money ;)

    I'm only kidding, I use US proxies to watch US TV too!
