How to Watch ABC iview in Ireland

How to Watch ABC iview in Ireland

"Want to watch ABC News 24 online when you're travelling in Ireland -- or just enjot some of your favourite TV shows using online 'catch-up' channels like the ABC's iView and programmes from the commercial channels?"

ABC iview is a video on demand and Catch up TV service run by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. The service became available on 24 July 2008.This was the next step after the podcasting of programmes since July 2006. Currently, this site is only viewable to users in Australia. The site streams video in 650kbit/s H.264 format. The iview website uses the RTMP protocol, and is thus officially accessible mainly on platforms supported by Adobe Flash, however the iPad and internet connected TVs such as Sony and Samsung provide access through the use of native applications.

The Australia VPN is an easy-to-use application that allows you to bypass this kind of limitation. It establishes a connection to VPN servers that provide new IPs, within their locations.
It's not as easy as you'd hope: the TV networks block their online video channels to Internet users from outside Australia.
Fortunately, there's an easy workaround for these restrictions. It's a clever bit of technology called a 'Virtual Private Network' or VPN, which disguises your location to make it appear that your notebook, tablet or even your smartphone is still in Australia.
Just follow the steps outlined in this article (we've covered how to do it for both Mac and Windows).
