These programs can be downloaded and kept on your device for up to 30 days, and then the license no longer works. If you are in the UK you can watch shows like Doctor Who, the Archers or Comedy Zone, but if not, there are regulations that prevent iPlayer from letting the programs be shown and so it is not possible at this time to view BBC iplayer outside the UK.

Virtual Private Networks Encrypt Data, Cloak IP Addresses

A virtual private network or VPN is a series of servers located in various countries so that subscribers to the network can login to their accounts and route their Internet use through the desired country’s servers. This process encrypts their data and their IP address changes to the specific country of the servers. So, if you want to view BBC iplayer outside the UK, you must subscribe to a VPN service

provider that has servers in the UK.

A VPN subscription is not very costly, usually only an average of around $10 for most basic services. Check out the various VPN providers by Googling the words “UK VPN provider” if you need to use one to view BBC iplayer outside the UK. Once you have chosen and subscribed to the VPN provider of your choice, you will get a login and password to access their servers and then your IP address will appear as if it is in the UK. This process will allow you to view BBC iplayer outside the UK.
