SAVE 49%: ExpressVPN is the best service for accessing BBC iPlayer from anywhere in the world. A one-year subscription to ExpressVPN is on sale for £90.85 and includes an extra three months for free — 49% off for a limited time.
This World Cup feels weird, but we’ll still be watching. It’s not the same as a summer competition that has a tight grip on the whole country, but we’ll back the team no matter what.
England start their campaign at 1pm GMT on Nov. 21 against Iran, and you can watch every second of the action on BBC One. That lunchtime kick-off time might mean you can’t get set up in front of a big screen, but do not fear, because you can still stream the game from BBC iPlayer whilst checking over your shoulder for your boss.
If you’re outside the UK, you will need to use a VPN to stream BBC iPlayer. When you try to connect to the popular streaming platform from abroad, you’ll be blocked by BBC iPlayer’s tight geo-restrictions. This feels slightly unfair, especially as it seems like your TV licence should provide access from anywhere.
The only way to get around these frustrating geo-restrictions is to use a streaming-friendly service like ExpressVPN. This high-speed VPN can hide your real IP address and connect you to a secure server in the UK. This process is quick and easy, and tricks BBC iPlayer into thinking you are back home. All you need to do is sign up to ExpressVPN, download the app, connect to a UK-based server, and then head to BBC iPlayer. It takes just a few clicks.
A one-year subscription to ExpressVPN is on sale for £90.85 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 pretty generous 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can recover your investment if you’re not totally satisfied with the service. You could even use ExpressVPN to watch all of England’s World Cup games and then get your money back.
ExpressVPN is the best service for unblocking BBC iPlayer from anywhere in the world, with strong connection speeds, powerful levels of encryption, a built-in password manager, and fast servers in 94 countries. Subscribers also get apps for every platform and can connect up to five devices simultaneously.
