Creating a new thread from a post in the disappearance of Michael Gregson thread. Here is a way to legally watch Downton Abbey from outside the UK. It may be frowned upon, but it is not illegal.
- Using either the Chrome or Firefox browsers (Chrome used as an example here), install the Hola plug-in from here.
- Pick a proxy in the UK.
- Go to the ITV website , ITV Player, and select Downton Abbey.
- It will prompt to login or register. If you do not already have an account, register for one.
- A valid UK postal code is required. If you do not know one, you can pick one from here.
- Resume playing Downton Abbey. ITV posts the most recent episode within an hour or two of the end of the live broadcast, and leaves it available for 30 days.
