“Not worth the money ”

Written on: 21/07/2018 by DisappointedM (1 review written)

We wanted to watch TV when on holiday and this seemed like a good option. Far from being easy the sign up process for iPad was difficult and long winded and when I contacted customer services I got no reply. We managed to log in abroad but the screen kept freezing and we could not watch the programmes we wanted. I cancelled the subscription. Although I passed on my comments they were not acknowledged until a second email when I was very helpfully informed that most customers did not experience… Read Full Review

“Ease peasy”

Written on: 24/05/2018 by Peterinblue (1 review written)

Worried that this won’t work abroad, just used a months worth in the USA and it worked perfectly from the off. Got all the sport and other programming. Good support from customer service team and cancelling the continuous direct debit is easy and you get a paypal confirmation. No hesitation in subscribing again in second half of year when I am away again. Brilliant… Read Full Review

“A great value for money service”

Written on: 16/05/2018 by Gaviscon (2 reviews written)

In the past I have used other similar sites which work out more expensive and can be difficult to cancel. Whilst in Germany I decided to give TV When Away a try. The set up was a little difficult, but that is not the fault of the service, it was just getting into the holiday apartment server, but otherwise it was fairly quick to do. We enjoyed all our favourite programmes whilst away for three weeks and all for a reasonable monthly subscription fee. Once we returned to the UK I went through… Read Full Review

Easy access to Uk television from abroad, I used it for two months while in Cyprus and was able to access many of the channels available in the Uk.

“Excellent service and easy to setup”

Written on: 11/04/2018 by Thompster (1 review written)

After lots of checking around/reviewing and asking my tech friends, I started this service whilst on holiday in Jamaica so I could watch my BT Sport subscription/service. I found the sign up process so easy and the setup on my iphone a walk in the park and was watching my favorite MotoGP live abroad ion minutes. When I got home I was able to cancel the subscription until I next go on holiday very easily by contacting their support. They responded in a matter of hours confirming no more payments… Read Full Review

“Not really very good”

Written on: 10/03/2018 by Spica (1 review written)

We are iPad users and the VPN seems to fail completely about once a month. They are slow to respond but they eventually issue a new VPN which you have to install all over again, and it's a bit of a faff. They supply an VPN,, a Proxy and a smart DNS so you can use up to three devices, I am still trying to use the suplplied web proxy on the other iPad.Their guide doesn't work and they seem clueless as to how to get it working. They just keep telling me to use the VPN, but that is on the other… Read Full Review

“EXCELLENT SERVICE”

Written on: 31/08/2017 by lisat78 (2 reviews written)

Brilliant service in the US. I forgot I had signed up a couple of years ago when travelling and stupidly tried another provider which failed miserably. Went back to TV When Away and with a couple of clicks I was back online to view my favourite UK TV. Its way cheaper than the alternatives too. Highly recommended. Even when I didn't know how to cancel a subscription, they did it for me, via paypal. Top marks guys. Thank you, top service… Read Full Review

“Good Value Very Effective.”

I have used this product on three oversea trips. It does what it says on the publicity. I did struggle on the first outing to set it up, but put that down to my grey hair and senior years, subsequently it was easier. I would recommend this product wholeheartedly… Read Full Review

“Works pretty well”

Written on: 29/06/2017 by Cruzz163 (1 review written)

Signed up for the monthly scheme to cover a holiday and unlike lots of online services, it was quick and simple to unsubscribe afterwards. The service itself was generally reliable throughout the holiday and gave me access to my TV services which complemented the internet sevice in the apartment. There were only a few interruptions and time outs from TVWhenAway although it was obvious that high demand at weekends had a negative impact on the broadband service I was using, so buffering became a… Read Full Review

“Simple and reliable”

Written on: 18/02/2017 by Beebedz186 (1 review written)

We decided not to bother arranging TV access for our week in Majorca before we went, and I wasn't sure we'd still be able to set it up when we changed our mind once away, However it was easy to do and once set up was reliable. We really only wanted it for a couple of programmes but at 2.99 we still felt we were getting good value. Our holiday home had good wi-fi and we did find that the internet once the VPN was set up was sometimes slower, but not disastrously so. I had read reviews that… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Service, Excellent Price!”

Written on: 14/01/2017 by SueKennard (1 review written)

We went to Tenerife over Christmas for three weeks and wanted to be able to access some of the lovely programmes scheduled on TV. TV Away was the perfect solution! It was easy to order and pay for. Once abroad I had initial difficulties connecting but support via e-mail was almost instant. They also followed up with me to check I was receiving everything OK....which it was! I was most impressed. I really think being able to watch British TV whilst aboard added to the enjoyment of our holiday… Read Full Review
