      Can't View Channel4.com catch up tv

      Hi,

      I can't view Channel4.com catch up tv service as that site thinks I am trying to view from outside the UK. They say I need to contact my internet service provider. Before I do this (I have just spent the past 2 weeks on the phone to Sky for an intermittent broadband connection and slow speeds - they are driving me mad!) I just wanted to know if anyone else has had this and been able to rectify it? I just can't bear to spend more hours on the phone to them.

      Everything about Sky Broadband is driving me nuts at the moment.

      This is the info from Channel4 help................

      I live in the UK (or the Republic of Ireland), but when I try to use Catch-Up it tells me that I am outside that area. Why is this and what can I do about it?

      Catch-Up on channel4.com uses geo-blocking software to detect where your computer is located when it connects to the internet. Occasionally you may be accessing from the UK or Republic of Ireland but the software mistakenly thinks your location is outside this area, and so blocks your access to Catch-Up. This is most likely caused by the way your Internet Service Provider sets up and manages your account. We suggest you contact your Internet Service Provider and explain the problem, which they should be able to resolve

      Might be worth rebooting your router so you get a different IP address.

      It works for me, but only with IE, not with Firefox.
