When ITV was a regional franchise-based television channel, Scotland had two stations covering the north and south of the country. Since ITV has amalgamated there is only one company covering most of England while Scottish Television (STV) covers north of the border. STV, which took over Grampian, broadcasts on Channel 3 and produces a lot of its own content. But most of ITV's most popular shows such as Coronation Street and Britain's Got Talent, for instance, are still broadcast for Scottish audiences. While the on-screen idents and look of STV has changed, its news operation - Scotland Tonight - still breaks the country down into two segments, much like the previous broadcasters did. Indeed, STV is said to offer the most comprehensive news service in the UK.
STV Most Watched online:
STV also broadcasts a lot of Scottish sport, particularly rugby, and produces some programmes in the Gaelic, though some of these are now only broadcast by BBC Alba. Like every other franchise, STV can produce programmes for the UK and perhaps its best known offering in recent years has been the detective drama series Taggart, which is set in Glasgow. Other shows produced by STV include Room at the Top, a lifestyle show, Wheel of Fortune and Catchphrase, and also programmes for other broadcasters such as eggheads and Antiques Road Trip for BBC2. However, there are some ITV-networked shows that STV doesn't run such as Doc Martin and Midsomer Murders, Lewis and Poirot, preferring instead to broadcast its own produced dramas, repeats and imported shows in those slots. STV says it drops those networked shows because they do not draw big audiences in Scotland, though viewers who want to see them can use other platforms to do so via a uk tv proxy. STV also broadcasts its programmes in HD and has also introduced a time shift channel - STV +1.The channel has a potential audience of 4 million viewers which are covered by two regions with each of those consisting of four sub-regions.
STV also runs STV Player on its website where viewers can catch-up with their favourite programmes though people can also stream it via PS3, computers, tablets, YouView, Android phones and the iPhone via a uk proxy tv service.

Channel 4 / 4OD
Viewers wanting to catch up with their favourite Channel 4 TV programmes can do so with the 4OD service on a uk tv proxy server. Called 4OD, viewers can watch a wide variety of old and new programmes from Channel 4. The channel has the highest viewing figures for any UK based broadcaster when it comes to providing video on-demand. The shows available are not just those found on Channel 4 but also on E4 and More4. Most programmes which have been broadcast are available for between seven and 13 days afterwards and 4OD will often upload programmes just hours after they have been broadcast on their terrestrial service. However, Channel 4 also provides some of its better known TV shows from years gone by on the streaming service with more than 3,000 hours of such programming available.
Channel 4 archives:
Among the most popular programmes from Channel 4's archives are Traffik, The Camomile Lawn and A Very British Coup. Some of these can be downloaded to a computer for later viewing for a small fee though they have a time limit in which they must be viewed. The programmes are streamed directly to the viewer's computer via the uk tv proxy which means they must have a reliable broadband connection which is capable of fast download speeds for smooth streaming. 4OD is well laid out with the programmes being sorted into specific categories such as drama, comedy and documentaries among them. Generally, at least one advertisement is shown before the requested programme begins. The channel is extremely popular with nearly 106 million views of the programmes recorded.

Sky TV and Sky Go
Like many broadcasters, Sky also provides its programming to watch on a streaming player though it puts far more material online than anyone else and you can access it all easily via a proxy server. However, because Sky is a subscription channel most of the content is restricted to Sky subscribers only and to geographical areas. Some output, such as Sky News is available to non-subscribers after they sign up for free. The service is called Sky Go and can be accessed via any computer, Xbox360 as well as smartphones and tablets.
Sky Catch Up
All Sky subscribers can simply log in and catch up with a programme they may have missed or watch the channel live if they have a strong wi-fi connection for their device. This means that viewers can take their laptop or tablet, for instance, connect to their uk tv proxy server and watch Sky programmes live while in a cafe or pub. They could even watch a football match while in a football ground! One of the attractions to the Sky Go service is that you can download a programme to a device for viewing later without having to rely on a wi-fi signal for wherever you may be going. However, the Sky Go service is not just for Sky subscribers since non-subscribers can also sign up to get access and the sign up process is a quick and easy.
To gain full access a non-subscriber will need to buy a Sky Go monthly ticket, for the channel's basic package.
The Sky Go service restricts access to the channels for which the subscriber has signed up to which means that they will need to have a movie package to access Sky Movies for instance, and if they have the sports pack they can watch all six of the Sky Sports channels.
Many programmes are available on a catch-up service for up to 30 days after first broadcast.Now available to both non Sky TV customers as well as existing subscribers.

Watch video on demand via the web
Video on-demand services are growing quickly in popularity and one of the biggest is Netflix. The service has now grown to 36 million members in 40 countries and has become the world's leading internet television network. Those who sign up can look forward to enjoying more than a billion hours of entertainment in the shape of films and TV programmes via their uk TV proxy server connection. Netflix has also begun streaming exclusive productions, such as Arrested Development and the US version of The Killing. The firm has also famously started its own quality production arm and spent a fortune producing a political thriller called House of Cards. The range of categories for programmes and films is broad – there is even a section for British films and another for foreign films. This is a subscription service and once signed up there is no limit to how much of their programming subscribers can watch in any given month. Most of the TV programmes are generally well known productions though some subscribers will probably enjoy those that have only been on satellite platforms such as Sky in the UK such as Modern Family.
Stream video anywhere in the UK:
Members can also watch Netflix anywhere that has a fast and reliable wifi or broadband connection – which means they could head to a cafe and watch programmes on their TV, computer, tablet or iPad. One of the attractions for using Netflix is the ability to pause, play and resume programmes and they also do not have commercials for members. Netflix likes to interact with its community of members and allows people to rate and comment on the shows and films they have watched. This is a great idea if the viewer is coming to a programme or film without much prior knowledge and is looking for recommendations as to why they should spend their time watching it. The service is also used by Netflix to help steer viewers towards films and programmes they may also like after they have finished watching their original selection.

A growing army of fans for the National Football League or American Football as it is known elsewhere. Most British fans call it 'gridiron', which refers to the pitch though Americans call the football pitch 'the field'. The sport has been shown on Channel 4 since the 1980s at various times, with some live games being featured in that time, but a highlights programme which reviews the action and controversies has been very popular. NFL games are now shown live on Sky Sports and there is a regular fixture at Wembley Stadium for fans of the sport in the UK and Europe.
Watch NFL matches online in the UK
Now, with two NFL games at Wembley and the Jacksonville Jaguars taking up a roving residence, the game may be set to take off in Europe in a big way. Essentially, NFL consists of 32 teams divided equally between the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). The season runs for 17 weeks, usually beginning after Labour Day – the first Monday in September - and ending just after Christmas. The leagues work with each team playing 16 games and having one bye week.
Of the 32 participants, six of them – four division winners plus two 'wild card' teams – then compete in the NFL play-offs which is a knock-out competition culminating in the famous Super Bowl final – which usually racks up some of the highest ever TV ratings in the US. The final essentially pits the champions from both leagues against each other to determine the NFL champions. Most of the NFL games are played on a Sunday with other games being held on Mondays and Thursdays.
Get the regular NFL matches and the Superbowl!
Sky Sports broadcast two games on a Sunday (at 6 pm and 9.15 pm) plus some coverage of the midweek games and the Super Bowl. Channel 4 also broadcasts some NFL games though these tend to be in the early hours of Monday morning because of the time difference. However, NFL fans can use the video on-demand service 4oD to watch any game broadcast by Channel 4 via a uk proxy tv service up to seven days after it was aired.
BBC Sport began broadcasting the NFL s Monday night games during the 2012/13 season on its 'red button' service and streams some games on its website. The BBC takes more interest in the play-offs for the Super Bowl with highlights programmes and also broadcasts the Super Bowl itself.Product Compatibility: UK TV Proxy UK TV VPN

Being an American broadcaster, most sports are from North America, mainly baseball, American football and basketball, though it will show more localised sports for other markets. After starting life as ESPN360 in 2005 as a mainly on-demand video website, a year later they began the move to live broadcasts and introducing studio-based discussion shows around certain sports.
