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:
"PrivateVPN is quite simply an all-around excellent VPN. If you are like me, you are in the market for a good VPN, but finding it hard to choose from the many options – so many VPNs, all with great reviews and features, good prices . . . but really they all seem the same – so how do you pick one? Easy – look for a service that is competitively priced, moving up in the market and focused on strict quality, has excellent features, simple installation, and prompt, friendly and intelligent customer service.
For my money, that service is PrivateVPN. Here’s why: I wanted to switch from my present VPN, Cyberghost, which was slow and buggy, and like the other big name VPNs was just too big, expanding too fast, which I find untrustworthy. Sure, these big VPNs might cost a few pennies less and advertise that they have a zillion servers, but is that really a good thing? How can they control and monitor all those nodes? How can they provide personal attention to customers? When a company grows too fast it outstrips its ability to maintain quality control.
I was bewildered by the huge array of VPN services out there and was attracted to PrivateVPN by its low-key emphasis on streamlined quality. I have been using this VPN for a month, and am impressed. It is clean, simple, no bloat graphics. The servers are always available and speedy.
It is AMAZING for torrent P2P, blasted past my miserly ISP throttle with ease, speed up the downloads. These cats have thought of everything. Using Wi-Fi someplace where they block VPNs? No problem, just go to settings and punch “Stealth VPN” ! Presto, you are through the firewall. Worried about IPv6 leaking? There is a toggle for that too, although I ran IPv6 leak tests and haven’t needed that feature yet since the IPv6 hasn’t leaked. No codes, no geek acrobatics, it just works.
My search is over, I am sticking with PrivateVPN. It is a cut above, and stands out from the herd."
Everything was simple and easy to set up. Basically, install and go. I have had to change a few settings now and then but that was most likely because my IP changed theirs. PrivateVPN was quick to respond to my call for help and resolved the issue with one email. The kill switch, which is vital for me, works perfectly. I highly recommend 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.
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.
