I believe iView is actually https now.

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.

You can openvpn/SSH to your home connection if your uplink is fast enough.
Otherwise finding a local server you can vpn to is the best option.
