Actually, it's not.

Google have openly stated that the main reason was due to them wanting to keep the Chromecast as simple as absolutely possible. They didn't want to include any complicated...

Short answer. No.

Longer answer.
The American and UK Chromecast sticks are basically identical. It is, as you suggest, IP addresses which determine if the streaming service will work.

4oD ads are definitely poor quality. The video quality of the actual programme is a different story however.

The best I have tested was on the Samsung Smart TV, which streamed at around 2400kbps....

At 4.99, why not just give it a go? There is no contract, so if after a month you don't like it, you can stop.

If you don't have a box to watch it, you can buy one for 9,99. There probably isn't a...

Don't knock the rubber mallet either (excuse the pun). If all else fails, bringing out the rubber mallet usually solves things too.

This is why I always plug Samsung TVs and BluRay players for people who are interested in the app side.

It is so easy to change regions, especially on the F or H series.

No, not a VPN. Australia is a long way from the UK, and a VPN will be very unlikely to cut it for high quality video.

A DNS service is much better, and usually cheaper. The advantages here are the...

Interesting, it doesn't include the BBC Sport app, but I thought this was now available on the Now TV box (mine hasn't been updated yet)

Well, to be honest, my favourite way is to just use the BBC iPlayer and 4oD's offline downloads.

It's free, and video quality is very good.

It also has the advantage that you don't need any...

Amazon Prime (US) is supported by OverPlay, but you need to subscribe to that separately to the UK one.

So, unlike Netflix, you can't just subscribe once, and switch libraries.
