Watching BBC iPlayer in the UK is straightforward. Visit the site and you’ll get immediate access to a wide range of top shows and movies without delay. Outside the UK? It’s not so easy.
Whenever you try to access BBC iPlayer outside the UK, you’ll be quickly blocked. This is frustrating, but you can get around this geo-restriction with a VPN. You might expect the process to be complicated, but it’s really quite easy.
The first step is to invest in a streaming-friendly VPN. Once you’ve picked something, you simply need to download the app and connect to a secure server in the UK. This quick process hides your real IP address, so BBC iPlayer thinks you’re in the UK when you attempt to sign in. That means you can watch all those popular shows and movies from anywhere in the world. You can also watch the World Cup for free.
There are plenty of VPNs out there that can do this job, but ExpressVPN is probably the most reliable. It’s not exactly cheap, but users get an intuitive app and interface, strong connection speeds and up to five simultaneous connections. All subscribers also get access to a large and diverse network of servers, which really helps when you’re streaming content from around the world.
A one-year subscription to ExpressVPN is on sale for £85.45 and includes an extra three months for free — 49% off for a limited time. This discounted plan also includes a year of free unlimited cloud backup and a 30-day money-back guarantee.
