Afraid Alba isnt available on Freeview. :boo hoo:

But if your friend has an internet connection, get him to download a program called "Zattoo"... a very good program that gets you those type of channels.... decent quality as well. :thumbsup:

Or you can get Alba on your computer via the BBC iPlayer which shouldn't need any downloads.

Start from the Alba website and go from there.

Good luck!

Do they not block certain programmes that come on due to "legal reasons"?

Not sure if they block the football games or not.

It says that the programme which is currently on is not being shown due to legal reasons. :confused:

So i'm not sure if they will show the game or not online.

Would love to think he would tell them to poke it, however if he delivered the Scottish Cup and/or a couple of SPL titles, then he could go on to replace Ferguson and ManYoo with my blessings.
