    Watching BBC Iplayer abroad 17th Apr 13 at 3:04 PM
    I will be spending a month or so abroad, while recovering from an operation, and was wondering how I could access BBC iplayer contents whilst abroad.

    I use tunnel bear VPN - it is a paid for service but very cheap and reliable. You can dial into the UK or the USA.

    The "review" you posted on another website couldn't be more like a paid for advert if it tried.

    You Think So?
    you think so shawn?.. i may sound like advertising but probably not. I'm just promoting what I am using because I'm sick of all VPN posts repeatedly pop up on lists o advertisements. why? because they have bunch of money to pay for advertisers? knowing the fact that they are not all good providers? so what's your problem with my post? I'm making my way to tell you that not all paid advertisement are good, they pay websites to promote what? their names with bad service? If your sick with my post, then ignore it. I'll tell the whole world what I wanna say. If ZoogTV then loves this, well thanks to you for taking a glance with my personal post.

    It is quite easy to watch BBC iPlayer abroad along with all of the other UK TV services like ITV & Channel 4 if you have a VPN running on your laptop, tablet or smart device. LAPTOPTELLY is pretty good for this as it actually is one of teh few I used when overseas that actually unblocked TV Catch-up.

    it is easy enough to access bbc when overseas if you have a reliable vpn connection on your devices connected to a uk server. i was using BBCIPLAYER.EU when i was over the channel last summer.

    You can easily watch with the help of a VPN. I am using ivacy vpn to bypass geo-restricted content. Like i watch ed Sherlock episode with vpn in Thailand.

    There's a much earlier thread to post on.

    You can get a complete guide from bestvpn .co on how to unblock and access BBC iPlayer form anywhere

    Always thought BBC iPlayer was UK based.
