Ideally i wanted to set up my router as the main external interface so i could watch from different locations etc but i have tried a few and they dont work even on the macbook due to this restriction. Thanks in advance
Sorry, I somehow missed this question.
I'm using Overplay, which has a SmartDNS option now. This means it can be set up on a device like the iPad, ATV, Laptop, or Smart TV (anywhere you can add a manual DNS server) and you can then access a pile of TV services from around the word. I use it to access UK, IE, AU, NZ and US services from everything between BBC's iPlayer, ITV, ABC (both AU and US), Hulu etc and because it's not a VPN, it should work a lot faster, especially if you are in NZ (From Germany, I can access TVNZ's highest quality stream without issues, so maybe you can access the BBC's HD streams.
I show an example of this, watching the BBC in Germany here: http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?feature=mhee
The other beauty about this service, is that you don't have to change VPN's to another country if you want to watch a different service, say switching from BBC to Hulu.
There is a link to Overplay's service in the video link above.
