  If your aim is to be able to watch iView, openvpn is going to be your 
best bet. iView only uses HTTP (and therefore the proxy) for indexing 
the content. The actual stream occurs on a different port.

Forcing all your traffic (or even just the traffic for your ISP's local 
iView CDN) via openvpn should work reasonably well, provided you have 
enough bandwidth. Don't forget, iView is aimed at "broadband" 
connections of greater than 1.1Mbps.
