Watch BBC iPlayer Outside of the UK With a VPN

BBC iPlayer is the largest TV streaming application in the United Kingdom and is the official online service for the state broadcaster the British Broadcasting Corporation.

If you want to download and stream content on the BBC iPlayer app then you will be needing to either be located in the UK or have a VPN installed on your device. This app is restricted to UK only viewers and so it detects what IP address you are using. You will need to be showing that you are using a UK IP address. You can show that you are within the United Kingdom when abroad by using a VPN.

Laptop Telly (@vpn01) is a VPN service aimed initially at British expats living overseas in places like Dubai and Australia who want to access BBC iPlayer and other UK only TV apps outside of the UK. Our VPN is one of the few that unblocks pretty much all British and American apps anywhere at the click of a button. It also unblocks Canadian and European TV apps too.

What is a VPN? Well a pretty smart bit of tech that gives you privacy and a wider range of viewing.

BBC iPlayer is certainly worth checking out if you like British TV as it has some of the best classic shows. When you have ordered the VPN be sure to switch off your GPS location settings on your device (if it has them) and then install the VPN and switch on any of the several UK VPN servers. Any of these will work fine and will make it look as though you are in the United Kingdom

You will need to switch your country location in your Apple or Android store to the United Kingdom and then download all the apps from the UK that you are wanting to use. We recommend that you download BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, TV Catchup, TV Player, All4, My5 and BritBox and also UKTVPlay to get pretty much all free-to-air UK TV content anywhere.
