Expat Shield Mac

Is there a software similar to Expat Shield for a Mac. I want to play the BBC iPlayer outside the UK, thanks.

EDIT: Found solution, Firefox add-on Stealthy (set location to GB(UK))

A quick search for "VPN OS X" should yield multiple results.

Are you using Stealthy successfully to watch TV from outside the UK?

Are there any security issues with this add on - I'm only looking to use it to watch TV, not to access online banking etc.. (ie. when it's switched 'off', is it truly off ?)

Thanks..

Looked at the source of the extension. Looks like its clean on the client side.
