Can I download podcasts and programmes outside of the UK?

You can download most podcasts on the BBC Sounds app or from the BBC Sounds website from outside of the UK. This includes using the website on your phone or tablet browser. Some podcasts can only be downloaded within the UK due to rights agreements which prevent us from making the content available internationally. Music and sports programmes are most likely to be restricted.

You can't download radio programmes on the BBC Sounds app from outside the UK. Again, this is due to rights restrictions.

Download before you go

If you're travelling outside of the UK, consider downloading programmes and podcasts before you go.
