    Not sure if someone has already done this, but anyways,

    damysteryman and I have made this fake ticket which will allow the BBC iPlayer to be installed on non-UK Wiis:
    http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?nioe4nndmay
    If you click on "Browse damysteryman's Shared Files", you may find something useful...

    Not quite sure if this ticket is allowed to be posted here. It should be, since it doesn't contain any copyright code.
    But if it's not could a mod please pm me before removing it? (Just so I know it's removed)

    Just unpack your BBC iPlayer wad and replace the 0001000148434A50.tik with the fake one, and repack, and the resulting wad will install fine.

    But, you'll need to get your Wii to connect via a UK proxy, else it will not be allowed to receive the video content.

    I'm not quite sure how to do this, as my Wii has no internet to actually connect to anything, but using this ticket allows the channel to install and run.

    Enjoy!

    My kids are playing wii.....not a chance for me to do anything right now. We still have to connect thru a UK proxy, that will be a chalange - to find one working.

    Which bit of the ticket being wrong stops nintendo's nandloader working right? I managed to get mine installing but it would only work with waninkokos nandloader.

    I edited my post...but you'd already posted again so i unedited it.

    Anyway, it will not run in NTSC. You'll need to force it to PAL somehow if you want anything out of it. Then, you'll need to import a PAL TV to see it...

    Can be done with RC for SM4.1 but I do not want to go back and forth, too bad I would really liked this channel. BTW PAL should work with a flat screen and component cable. Thanks anyway.

    My understanding of UK media is that the people get free access to the BBC content because their taxes / tv license [yes!] pay for it. Why would they ever include NTSC support?

    Pretty much, but I think it's more marketing reasons, like regions for games/dvds, or like why we can't watch anything on the Hulu, Fox, Viacom sites etc and you won't be able to watch shows on ITVPlayer or 4od. Not that your missing out on much really. There's maybe 2 programmes on the Beeb worth watching. Everything else is American content at least 3 months after everyone's told you what happens, or cheap nasty game shows. We can't even do a decent comedy any more.

    Really, if you're trying to get this working as a technical exercise, have fun. iPlayer itself is quite cool. But don't expect anything worth watching. This series of Top Gear's just finished, and Doctor Who just died..

    Im desperate to get this working on a Jap Wii - at the moment its installed but just goes to a black screen when I run it ... am i missing an IOS? can anybody suggest one? I had a similar problem with the NTSC-U Tetris Party when it came to running it on my Japanese Wii.

    I put iplayer on and well BBC is crap anyway as the other guy said its US stuff 3 months after its released in the states, as far as the tv in the UK every household has to pay for a tv license whether they watch bbc tv or not and if you dont buy one you get a nice £1000 fine, cant wait for bbc to go subscription only then UK will be free of paying this bullshit license

    4 channels, and a HD one.
    They also have different channel streams for the two in different regions of the UK, including Northern Ireland and Scotland.
    Also, your comment saying "I put iplayer on and well BBC is crap anyway as the other guy said its US stuff 3 months after its released in the states" is false, they make their own shows and invest a lot of money in them.

    You get a hell of a lot more than RTE gives us here.
