British TV is a small freeware utility which, when combined with the most excellent VLC media player freeware, lets anyone in the world watch 44 British television channels via the Net. It’s wonderfully geeky and simplistic, but also works, which is pretty amazing. Be patient as it can take a little while for things to fire up, and unfortunately lesser channels can disappear from time to time, but the main ones seem fairly reliable. Works on Windows, Mac and Linux. I personally love CBeebies, but don’t tell anyone.
Q. Channels won’t buffer or start. A. The sever that host the channels is probably undergoing maintenance, is down, or the URLs have changed. This has nothing to do with the British TV program, VLC, or someperson. Please email someperson with a list of non-working channels so that he may provide an update if necessary.
