Being away from Britain can be hard and without my beloved iPlayer it's even harder. Thanks to god I found the VPN solution named ibVPN.
I use the Premium UK package to access the iPlayer, 4oD, ITV player and so on here in Germany. The setup via openVPN is very easy due to the detailed installation guides. Speed is great and more than enough even for the HD programmes.
Can't find any reason not to recommend ibVPN.
