For British TV fans around the world, it may not be as easy as turning on the tube to tune into your favorite British programming. Though popular British TV shows like EastEnders, Top Gear, or Big Brother might be available in limited distribution in some foreign countries, it's difficult to find the most recent and most popular shows available in The UK. Very often what you can access OUTSIDE The UK, is old news back IN The UK. Not only that, times are strange. If you have satellite TV, that means your tied to a UK schedule, and might be watching TV at 2:30 in the morning. If you're using local TV channels to watch UK TV overseas, time might be convenient, but quality isn't always great.

So you're fighting several battles at once, but there is a solution. Streaming television online is a popular way to watch not just new shows broadcasting in The UK, but also classic British Television like Money Python, Black Adder, and Dr. Who. Some countries allow for streaming British television online for free. Quality and availability will differ, and you might run into the problem of shows being dubbed in the local language. So the solution to this problem would be to stream television from local British sites like BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, Sky Player, Demand 5, or Channel 4. This would be the best way to watch UK TV overseas, right?

This presents the problem of IP address. Most sites that provide streaming television in The UK limit access to users that are in The UK. From the IP address of your phone or computer, a website is able to see your location. With their firewall, they can block IP addresses based on location. However, there are ways to get around this. Most of the time you'll be able to use a virtual private network to get a British IP address on your phone or computer. With a British IP address provided by a VPN, you'll be able to bypass firewall restrictions.

VPNs are a kind of anonymous surfing software. This means that they hide your real IP address and replace it with another one. When you replace your actual IP with a British IP, you'll be able to access these TV streaming sites from The UK, and watch UK TV overseas. It's as simple as that. In most cases, for a VPN with decent streaming speed you'll pay about ten USD per month, and contract lengths will vary from a couple days, to a year. This will depend on which VPN service you choose.
