    you cannot access all of the iPlayer content from outside of the UK. I assume that also applies to the Wii channel version.

    Can I use BBC iPlayer outside the UK?

    Rights agreements mean that BBC iPlayer television programmes are only available to users to download or stream (Click to Play) in the UK. However, we are aware of demand for an international version.

    Most radio programmes are available outside the UK in addition to podcasts, although sporting and other programmes may be subject to rights agreements.

    In addition, highlights from many of BBC News' programmes are available for viewers outside the UK, as is BBC Sport video content.

    Do make sure you check for the latest updates on BBC iPlayer or contact your own country's broadcasters to find out if they offer a similar service to BBC iPlayer.

    Heh, there was a reason that I asked the question on this forum as opposed to anywhere else. Just in the off chance that anyone had forced it or found a work around for the pesky region thing.

    The only way is to find a proxy server in the UK and configure your wii's network settings.

    Then you have the little problem of finding one with enough bandwidth to watch the streaming video, but that's another issue for another day
