There's another company out there called TellyPortVPN.com that seems to be offering a similar service for streaming TV and it is up and running. The two don't seem to be related in any way - other than the obvious name similarity.
well when it was online it was superb to get acess to the Great BBC
But when it went down with information on the websit undergoing maintenence i was a bit Confused are there any legal things involved here ?
I would apreciate a better ecxplanation.
I have been using Tellyport in Switzerland and my BBC player went a few weeks ago, however, up until late last week I was still able to get ITV. Since yesterday I haven't been able to get anything. All is not lost though. I have been watching live ITV1 and BBC1 on zattoo.com I tried to use it in Germany on the weekend but without luck, but here in Switzerland it works fine.
I have to agree with previous comments, Tellyport was brill for Brits living abroad. We only had an internet connection last Nov and found Tellyport staight away, what a difference it made to our lives!!!!!
Well, Tellyport if you manage to reinvent yourselves in any way please let us know.
Also, with regards to refunding subscriptions we have had ours, so can't be fairer than that.
Tellyport .....RIP :-)

One of the best things on the internet, and a great source of Brit TV for those of who`s jobs take us outside Blighty.
- We were gutted when the service stopped, and all credit to the owner who quickly refunded our modest subscriptions.
Tellyport RIP ? - I hope not.
- let us know when you have sorted out your difficulties Daniel, because television ( distributed like this ) is the future.
Worked flawless until now.Broadcasting companies have licensed stuff for local,not worldwide broadcast, so when signing up I was aware that lending of an UK IP address could be in the "grey zone".
Hope the service soon will be back.
I must admit I was surprised when everything ground to a 'site maintenance' halt, but realised after a few days that it was not entirely their fault and probably out of their hands as this is one area of the internet which is still increasingly hard to grab. They let me know pretty quickly that my direct debit payments had been cancelled, and I think this is a sign of a genuine service. Hopefully they'll resume at some point and I will go back to them if they do. Sarah in France
This has been a great service at tremendous value. I don't know what the problem is but, based on my experience with their help line, I do have faith in them to find a solution. I am happy, for now, that they devote their immediate time to getting it up and running. Good luck, Patrick NL
I have today received notification that the tellyport service has refunded my money So whoever accused them of stealing their money check your inbox.
If the site has gone forever then I'm not surprised. The service was illegal and had a very high profile. That high profile of course may have been it's downfall. My itv player is still working but I will miss the bbc iplayer. But I'll just have to go back to watching the other methods i know of getting UK TV here in Spain.
For the last week Tellyport has shut down shop with the only explanation being that they're "undergoing maintenance". I've tried to contact this elusive Daniel Evans Jones (the guy who is happily deducting our money to pay for a service that none of us is getting) but of course no reply. Come clean and tell us what's going on Tellyport!
I have been having exactly the same problems with Tellyport as everybody else here, surely they must have some rivals, does anybody know one ? They used to be advertised on the ITV website, so they must have been legal anyway, and from my experience they were a reputable company and never did anything untoward with my payments etc.
Up till now, I have enjoyed tellyport and had no problems. Sent Email to site admin=no response. If they are truly under construction, I'd hope theyd have surely finished by now. Perhaps they have closed up shop? Very unfortuneate. I guess its time to begin looking for an alternative carrier of this type of service. If anyone knows whats up, please let us know.
I have only joined tellyport 3 weeks ago and so far nothing has worked and my payment has been deducted! Does anyone know if this service has been discontinued or is the web site really under maintenance? I have been seeking help with establishing viewing ability since the end of last week and have had no contact at all. I am very concerned and wonder if I should cancel the periodical payment? Any thoughts?
