I've not tried any of this but as a guess, part of what is happening is that the software (Channel 4, iPlayer, and/or Flash) is checking your IP address to see if it's in the declared code area. You might be able to get around this by using something like TOR or see this article on VPNs and how to fool destinations as to where you came from: https://medium.freecodecamp.org/how-to-set-up-a-vpn-in-5-minutes-for-free-and-why-you-urgently-need-one-d5cdba361907.

But the effort might be more than the results warrant, as as the old advert says, "your mileage may vary".
