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!

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.
