BBC iPlayer Outside of the UK

BBC iPlayer is by far the biggest online TV player in the UK and since 2007 has been serving up all BBC content to watch when you want and as many times as you want.

If you want to watch BBC iPlayer outside of the though, you will run into trouble. BBC iPlayer, like ITV Hub is geographically locked and so if you do not show as having a UK IP address, it will not work for you.

When you have a VPN installed on your device, you will be able to access all British TV and gaming services anywhere in the world as it will switch your foreign IP address to that of one form the united kingdom. This is a great bit of tech that not only works for BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub, but also for other geo locked services such as bet365 and PaddyPower.

When you have a VPN running on your device, you will also gain internet security and anonymity, so that you can be on public WIFI without your data being intercepted by hackers. It will also allow you to browse and download anything that you like from the internet without either your ISP or government from seeing what you are doing. This is perfect if you do value your internet privacy.


Privatrax is one of the few VPN services that unblocks not only BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub abroad, but it is also one of the few that has uncapped data limits. This means that you can stream as much content as you wish in high definition without this maxing out your data quota.
