Why can't I watch TV programmes on BBC iPlayer outside the UK?
iPlayer is a service for people in the UK. Because of rights agreements, you can only download or stream BBC iPlayer TV programmes while you’re inside the UK.
What you can do outside the UK
If you are already outside the UK and haven’t downloaded any of our TV programmes then, unfortunately, there is no content available to you. However, you can still enjoy the great output from BBC Radio. To find out more visit the BBC iPlayer Radio site.
