Full 30-day money-back guarantee
Enjoy a speedy, secure and private connection so you can stream your favourite BBC shows. Any location. Any device.
Get a fully-dedicated VPN for BBC iPlayer and bypass frustrating location restrictions and speed throttling. There’s no risk to your account, and you can enjoy the full UK catalogue in crystal-clear HD as if you were home.
Many other VPN providers don’t offer fully-secured UK IP addresses. Meaning BBC iPlayer CAN see where you’re streaming from. Not with PrivateVPN’s 2048-bit military-grade servers in London and Manchester. You’re fully privatised! Also, other VPN services don’t tell you to clear your browser cookies, or to stream in Incognito mode in Chrome/Firefox—so we’ll tell you. You should always do this, no matter which VPN you use. .
Here’s a small list of iPlayer shows blocked outside the UK:
Geoblocking is causing you to miss out on over all of your favourite entertainment.
BBC iPlayer only has the right content licensing agreements for streaming within the UK. That’s a shame, since paying for a valid TV licence is essentially paying to access BBC content at home. What if you move abroad or go on holiday? You’d have to do without all your favourite TV shows until you get back.
Not with PrivateVPN. With our specialised VPN locations in London and Manchester, you can access your favourite shows, live sports matches, news channels and more with our UK-based IP addresses. When you connect to our dedicated BBC iPlayer VPN locations it’s like you never left home. Meaning you can stream quickly and privately from anywhere using your laptop, phone or tablet.
With PrivateVPN’s custom-built VPN for iPlayer you can easily bypass content geoblocking with just one click, stream the latest shows in buffer-free HD and never worry about blocked or flagged accounts when you travel.
and much, much more...
After successfully encrypting over 15,000 Terabytes of data, maintaining a record 99.98% uptime and unlocking thousands of iPlayer accounts, it’s no wonder our users stick with PrivateVPN for years, even after trying other providers!
See what our users have to say about PrivateVPN:
At first, I could not access either All4 or BBC iPlayer. I found it very easy to contact Private VPN and they gave me a comprehensive reply within a couple of hours. The man who replied (Richard) was most helpful and put things right immediately. By using the Advanced options and the Incognito Window I now have full access to both and am delighted with all things VPN.
"PrivateVPN has worked well every time for me. It allowed me to bypass a blocked site. Other VPN’s failed ! My experience using PrivateVPN has been 100%.
Other VPNs failed to unblock sites or failed to keep their servers online and failed without a warning or user screen display. If the VPN server goes Offline for any reason, a user needs to know about it !"
"I was recommended Privatevpn, by a friend, my expectations where low. I tried it for a few days and was amazed at the quality of service, that I signed up for a 3 year plan. I thanked my friend for his knowledge about excellent vpn companies.
Having used it for a few weeks I am extremely happy.

As they stated, yes. But this was merely a statement made to please their content providers who felt their shows were being viewed without the right licence agreements (it’s a money thing). In reality, iPlayer has no way to keep track of 1000s of VPNs that are connecting from around the world.
PrivateVPN has 4 ultra-secure UK servers for you to choose from, ensuring you’ll get to make the most of your iPlayer whilst abroad.
We’ve had a record-breaking 99.98% uptime since we launched in 2008, that’s why our customers love PrivateVPN for iPlayer!
Unlike many VPN services, we purchase our internet capacity directly from IP transit providers. This coupled with our High-quality-network (HQN) servers mean you won’t experience major speed cuts.
In fact, many ISPs use Speed Throttling to slow your connection depending on your activities. Using a VPN bypasses this throttling since ISPs can’t see your activities, so some users actually experience increased internet speeds and better streaming.
Yes, we support most popular devices:
Technically, the BBC’s systems will be tricked into thinking you’re still in the UK so they’ll have no reason for suspicion. Our military-grade encryption has NEVER been compromised since we launched in 2008. In short, yes, your account is safe.
