Huge list: where to find Australian TV shows online

By danwarne     Filed under: personal entertainment, ABC, ABC TV, video, TV, ABC iView, Channel 9 catchup TV, NineMSN Fixplay, Channel 7 catchup TV, Yahoo!Plus 7, SBS catchup TV, Channel 10 catchup TV, Australian TV, catchup TV, hotel entertainment

All the major TV networks in Australia now let you watch full episodes of your favourite shows online, which would be great when travelling -- except that they block people trying to watch from outside Australia.

However, we've explained how to get around geoblocking when you're travelling; once you've followed those instructions, you can find your favourite TV shows in this list, along with a link to the relevant catchup TV website.

For extra convenience, consider bringing an HDMI cable with you to connect your laptop to hotel room flat-screen TVs for big-screen watching. If your laptop doesn't have an HDMI port, you still might be able to connect it to the TV using an adaptor (for example, recent model Apple MacBooks can use the Kanex Mini-Displayport to HDMI adaptor.)

Note: we compiled this list on 27th January 2011, but TV networks change the availability of shows online constantly, so some shows on the list might not be available at the time you read this.
