thanks. by no means do i wish to infringe upon the restrictions of the license or copyrights, but thanks for your reply.If you're not still living in the UK (and paying your TV license fee) then you are not entitled to it. As someone who pays, I'm not particularly overwhelmed with inspiration to help with a workaround, but you can try your luck with proxies or perhaps bittorrent.
it's not even so much the iplayer service - i can understand the copyright issues with that, but even BBC's Doc Who site is location restricted. lol just wanted to have a look see for when series 5 was coming on airwould a vpn tunnel to the uk work for watching bbc iplayer, etc abroad?
i live in the UK and pay the uk license fee, but when visiting the parents in germany i'd like to watch some bbc tv and not german tv.
Even better they should find some way of letting license payers use iPlayer from outside the country...I really wish there were a fee-for-service type set up for BBC programmes in the US. The amount of time it takes to get shows onto BBC America (only for them to be edited to hell and commercials added) is such a shame. If they had it so someone could download or stream from iPlayer for a set fee, I bet it would do well.
Not the simplest thing to set up but:Hotspot Shield is only working for US content as it uses US servers.
I have not found any indication it works for other countries, but also no clear statement, that it only works for US content.
No, a non-UK resident can't buy a license to get access, but if you live near the UK (like I do) there's nothing stopping you picking up BBC satellite transmissions and iPlayers geo ip checks are readily circumvented if you have the will to do so.Is it possible to pay the fee even if you aren't a UK citizen?
I love watching BBC contents in iPlayer but as I don't live in UK I'm not allowed to enjoy them.
Don't know how much is the fee, but probably I wouldn't mind to pay it to be allowed to use iPlayer without any hassle
You DO NOT need a TV licence to watch BBC iPlayer (the on-demand portions) - even in the UK.If you're not still living in the UK (and paying your TV license fee) then you are not entitled to it. As someone who pays, I'm not particularly overwhelmed with inspiration to help with a workaround, but you can try your luck with proxies or perhaps bittorrent.
That is simply impossible as the BBC buys the rights for people IN the country to use the service. If you were out of the country, the BBC would not have the relevant rights.Even better they should find some way of letting license payers use iPlayer from outside the country...
Uh... might want to double-check your facts a bit.You DO NOT need a TV licence to watch BBC iPlayer (the on-demand portions) - even in the UK.
The law (the Wireless Telegraphy Act) does not cover on-demand content, so a licence is simply not needed.
Nope.Also if you buy something like EYETV to watch tv on a computer the license is included.
