BBC 1 via VPN

I'm trying to watch the (live streaming) BBC channels via VPN. Does anyone know if this actually works?

I have other channels working, which seem to not care about VPN so I'm guessing I'm either doing something wrong or it just doesn't work.

(I can watch the channels on my PC, just not on my Samsung D5000)

Thanks

Strangely, BBC1, BBC2 & ITV popped up on my list of channels on the TV without me changing anything.

I can watch ITV without using VPN, but the other channels require me to go through a UK VPN.

Depends on how you are accessing them. RSS folder streams do not require VPN.
