Watching Shows on BBC iPlayer Outside of UKAs you may already know, if you live outside of UK, you cannot watch shows on BBC iplayer. Why? BBC blocks the access to iplayer by blocking the IPs coming outside of UK.
What are your options? Well, you can use free proxies that gives you UK IP address. But these proxies keep disappearing. You will need to find new proxies every time you want to watch your favorite shows. Also, these proxies are slow and most of them are unusable.
If you have a computer in UK, you can try to create your own tunnel and access iplayer using your local computer in UK. You will need to keep that machine on all the time, and the quality of the video will not be good.
