    Day 3 of the my Model S adventure. Whilst waiting for the battery to charge I tried to select the BBC iplayer. It said that the car did not have a UK IP address and was therefore unable to connect. Is it possible to watch any of TV type 'player' services in the Model S in the UK?

    I have read in previous posts that the BBC radio content is available through a service called 'Tunein', but with DAB radio available in the UK all the BBC radio services are present on that. I particularly liked the comment from one Californian resident saying how much he enjoyed driving round California listening to the 'Archers'. :smile:



    As a second question related to the net connection, on my PC's I use Mozilla Thunderbird as my email client. Can it be used in the Tesla? I don't particularly want to use GMail.

    Thanks again.

    Congratulations on your new MS.

    Video is not enabled in the native web browser.

    There is no native Email/MMS/SMS function within MS like many other brands provide. There is no way for you to use a different web browser within MS.

    Thunderbird? Seriously? No one commented on that?
