BBC iPlayer

    Recommended Posts

    Could anybody please tell me how we can watch UK programmes on BBC iPlayer? Really desperate to catch up with few programmes but it says that can only be viewed in the UK. Is there a way around this?

     

    Thanks

    There are a number of sites which allow you to watch UK TV over here with varying degrees of legality. I use one called Adtelly but if you type into google "watch" then the name of the TV program you want to see you will usually find a source to see most programs.

    Just watch ABC or UKTV - all their programmes are UK ones! ABC iViewer - which unlike BBC iPlayer is perfectly legal to watch here (there IS a reason for the TV license in the UK) even has stuff like the latest Doctor Who episode just hours after its been on UK TV, and a week before they show it on the normal channel.

     

    You would need to find software that disguised your IP address so make the BBC think you were a license payer in the UK to watch BBC iPlayer legally here....

    If you download Expat Shield, you will be able to view iPlayer, as it assigns a UK IP address to you. The only downside is adverts and pop-ups which are quite annoying.

    Surely you wouldn't have this problem if you used a downloader ?

    Expat shield does work but the ads are annoying - Iwatch eurosport player using it, then turn it off as soon as I get it up and running. The eurosport player seems to work fine once you're in.BC iplayer may be the same.
