How to unblock BBC iPlayer Abroad In 2016

Are you planning on traveling abroad for the summer, and you want to watch UK TV via the catchup services such as BBC iPlayer or perhaps 4oD and ITV Hub. The good news is that this is entirely possible.

BBC iPlayer lets you stream high-quality TV and radio shows, as well as movies. It is, however, limited to UK viewers, which means – in principle – you can only watch it from inside the UK. But there are ways to watch BBC iPlayer from outside of the UK, perhaps while on holiday or for those living abroad.

Through The Use of VPN:

The easiest way to watch BBC iPlayer abroad is to use a VPN such as Express VPN, or any of the available options.

VPNs (virtual private networks) are used for many purposes, as they allow you to surf the internet with anonymously and protect your privacy, which gives you total security and freedom.  VPN can also be used to virtually relocate your computer or mobile device by offering access to an IP address from the region you require. This is where they can come in handy for watching BBC iPlayer and other UK TV abroad.

You first have to choose a convenient VPN service. Once you’ve got your chosen VPN service up and running, you’ll need to set it to the UK and go to the BBC iPlayer webpage to start watching.

By Changing DNS Settings:

If you want to get UK TV via the browser on your Xbox or PlayStation then you will need to fiddle with some DNS settings. If you head to the network settings of the console/device and manually configure the settings then you can enter a primary and secondary DNS (Domain Name Servers) numbers.

You can search the internet for these numbers (they change atimes) and Express VPN has a good list which you can try. They are premium DNS Service which will serve you for a long time  and the fastest you can find anywhere, rather than free services which wll occasionally send you to someone’s own site rather than your desired TV source in an attempt to sell you a slow proxy list or something worse.
