So after incorporating all the fixes, will we be able to watch contents from free cable addon outside USA? and thanks for your hard work. Your work is always very helpful and brilliant.

Using a proxy or a vpn you should, I think most of the people working on this are outside of he US, so we have an interest in getting it working this way. I think we few channels work without a proxy or vpn but not many.

Because there's so many different ways of bypassing geolocks some might work with some channels where others won't.

Eye In the Sky has found a few which don't work with a proxy, although this can probably be fixed.

maybe i'm being really dense, but when i install the xbmcplus repository, i can't install the free cable plugin because it is marked as broken.

I am on the latest stable build of xbmc. Is there a requirement for a certain xbmc version?

Thanks!

It's working. Try to uninstall the old one and reinstall from the xbmcplus repository again.

Delete what? I don't have the free cable add on installed. When I try to install it from the xbmcplus repo it says broken, with no option to install.

that is my problem as well. I do not have the plugin installed at all, so there is nothing to delete.

I just tried on a fresh xbmc install with the latest nightly, and I get the same error.
