Watch Iplayer Overseas  -  Which Service Should I Use?

Though iPlayer is now available in 11 European countries, iPlayer overseas, as in 'across oceans' still means that you're going to have to sign up for a service outside of iPlayer to get access. There may be a US app in the next year or so, and there's always the possibilities that other countries will be added to this list, but there will most like be many restrictions on how, and how much of the video streaming service will be accessible.

UK TV Streaming Services

There are many sites that actually sell products that are specifically targeted to streaming UK TV from anywhere in the world. Any Google search will bring up pages of them. They have many satisfied customers, and though I think that many of them have pretty poorly designed sites, they've been operating successfully for many years.

But some services will limit you to the amount of time you can stream TV each day, or to the specific sites that you can access. This is not true for all services, but you'll have to sort through them to find out which ones allow unlimited access and unlimited bandwidth to UK TV channels online.

Prices will vary from service to service, but they'll range from £3 to £50 per month. Some of the cheaper services I've never tried, and these are the ones with the sketchy sites. The more expensive ones are all inclusive packages for satellite TV access to your internet TV and other devices.

A Better Solution

I prefer to use VPN access for a number of reasons. For one ,it gives me full control. I can install a VPN on my computer and phone, and even hook up my laptop to my internet TV to stream on a large screen while overseas for extended periods of time. I can access any UK site I want, and am not limited to what any service says I'm limited to. The VPN is not ONLY for UK TV access. I can unblock UK websites, and because my VPN service has servers in several countries around the world, I can also access sites from other countries. This means with my UK VPN service I can get Spotify, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, Channel 4, LoveFilm - not just iPlayer.

Also, to watch iPlayer overseas for unlimited hours on all of my devices, I only pay one fee. My service is £5 per month because I signed up for 1 year, but there are some out there that have monthly access to UK servers for this price without the 1 year commitment necessary. Others will be in the £10 range for 1 month of service, and offer discounts for longer term subscriptions. Anyway, it's cheap.

All in all, cheap, easy, and fast when compared to the types of services I mentioned earlier - I'll take a VPN any day.
