When you leave your Irish home for business travel or holiday you might miss the news and tv shows from home. As long as you have friends and family in Ireland and you have some basic computer knowledge, you might be able to get the Irish web content while travelling the world. Some content of the RTÉ player is blocked from sending out to foreign countries. So you will have
to "fetch" your favourite soaps and series.
Ther is a simple Windows Application around that could help you. Also you do need some support from your family. The software is intented to share your local internet connection with multiple computers. But with some effort it can also share that content over the internet. More about that can be found at the ReDirproxy site.
