BBC iPlayer outside the UK

BBC iPlayer outside the UK is easy.  How many people have tried to access BBC iPlayer only to get the “Not available in your area”?  Here’s the solution …

Getting BBC iPlayer anywhere – in 2 steps!

To access BBC iPlayer, just do the following:

Step 1.  Subscribe to a trustworthy UK-based VPN.

Step 2.  Connect to the UK server and that’s it! Welcome to BBC iPlayer in the US! You can now enjoy streaming TV and Radio from our favourite BBC.

BBC iPlayer allows you to watch many of the BBC shows on the web. Unfortunately for us, BBC does not allow users outside the UK to watch these shows for some unusual reason. Luckily there’s a way around this no matter WHERE you are in the world (including the US, Germany, Denmark, Australia, Canada, China, Italy, etc.).

"Not available in your area"

There are many sites recommending different software to use, but I have found a solution with no required software: (Note – you can also use instructions below to watch other content blocked from viewing within the US, or even to watch content only allowed in the US when you are abroad)

Not available in your area

Now, I can get my fill of BBC iplayer to watch my favorite UK programming.  This also means you can access BBC one, BBC two, BBC Three, BBC four and of course my favorite BBC HD.  Happy BBC iplayer -ing!

There you go – have your VPN running (I just keep it up in the background), whenever you go to the BBC iPlayer site, you’ll be able to watch any UK-based websites and videos.

Another benefit of a VPN is that it makes it ‘Almost impossible for someone to tap or interfer with data in the VPN tunnel.’ according to Utah State University.  You can even get BBC iPlayer in Canada.
