Have you been to London and England and now you miss BBC? Would you like to stream BBC iPlayer in your home country as well? It can be done!
There is little doubt about the fact that BBC is one of the best TV networks in the world. On our list of favorite BBC shows you can find Sherlock, Cuckoo and lots of other programs. But, if you try to stream these shows and lots of other BBC content in the BBC iPlayer when outside England you will simply get an error message. That can be really annoying, but luckily there are ways in which you can still get access to BBC when abroad. The following instructions are based on the guide in the IP Address Guide.
How to stream BBC abroad
In order to stream BBC when outside London and England, you will need to make BBC believe that you are in the UK. This can be achieved through using a working VPN provider and connect to one of their VPN servers in the UK. Unfortunately not all VPN services work for this purpose, but at the time writing there is one working. If you read this article in a long time from now, we suggest that you visit the IP Address Guide to read their article, which is updated frequently (something this article most likely will not be). At the moment, this is how it can be done.
- Visit the BBC iPlayer.
- Sign up and create a new user. Register it with a UK ZIP code, for example NW2 1LP or E14 9SJ.
- Confirm your email address with BBC iPlayer.
- Sign up for the VPN services of ExpressVPN.
- Download their VPN client and connect to a server in the United Kingdom.
- Visit the BBC iPlayer again and you are ready to stream.
If you follow these instructions you should be able to stream BBC iPlayer in a few minutes from now. It is really easy, and you will get access to lots of program from the iPlayer library, and also to live streams of all the BBC channels, including the children’s channels.
