Default Watching UK TV Abroad

Hi I used to work for Celebrity and P & O loved my time at sea. I recently went on Cruise with my Family and it was interesting to see, some things never change at sea, however the queue for the phone at each point was replaced with all the crew with their Laptops in the wifi zones. Well I live in France and recently set up a VPN business so expats could watch TV like the bbc iplayer abroad. I was just thinking when I was at sea I would have happilly paid £6.50 a month for Eastenders ( sad but true) and the football so I thought I would pass it on to you guys www.lamnia.co.uk We also have a referral program so if you recommend enough friends you can get it for free

You could just have someone download the torrents and send them to you on DVD to the ship. No?

Default live football in the post

granted if you just want to catch up on soaps torrent downloads will do the job. However with the itv player and hulu and zattoo you can watch all the main channels live on the internet.

But can you get enough bandwidth on the ship (plus I assume crew must pay, even if it is cheaper). And the limited time. But there is a place for both, I assume. (And incidentally, it's more than just soaps... Graham Norton, Ashes to Ashes, Spooks, Dr. Who, Torchwood, etc.
