Christmas Party For The Colorado British Ex Pats

Based on recommendation and my own experience the Colorado British Ex Pat Christmas Party will be held at the Yak at Yeti in Old Town Arvada.

I've opted for a Friday night for this one to give the people who can't make week days a chance to attend. There is also another method to my madness! :-)

I have reserved the room upstairs which holds up to 30 people so it will a case of who ever replies the quickest to reserve their seat.

Spouses and other family members are welcome as I know a few of you have family in town during this time.

I am trying to negotiate a discount for our party so I will post details of that at a later date.

For anyone coming from Arvada I'm happy to car pool.....will probably have 2-3 places available in my car.

Hope to see you there!

Lisa

    You can go to expatshield.com and download a virtual private network that allows you to watch bbc iplayer and itv iplayer. I have friends that use vpnuk.info and pay about six pounds a month for the service, and again you can watch all the UK TV.

      How do I get U.K. television? ITV and TV Catchup are only for U.K. users? What do we use here to get U.K.? Also what about HBO, Showtime, etc?

      XBMC will give you premium US shows, movies, and UK TV for free with no ads.

      TheBox will give you UK TV/radio only with no ads.

      Proxies will allow access to geographically blocked web sites like bbc.co.uk, itv.com, channel4.com etc. These are either ad supported or you pay a monthly fee.

      Hi; how do you get ITV, BBC british to work? Cable HBO, Showtime, other movies and free cable to work? Errors when finding individual programs?

      December 16, 2012

    • Mark

      TheBox, and most of the sources on XBMC organise the programming around each TV show rather than the channel they were broadcast on. Look them up by name rather than the channel.

      Since this is based on a compilation of 3rd party sites, some links are old and do not work, but most should.

      What programmes are you looking for? and where are you looking?
