I'm in the UK. Why am I getting advertisements on podcasts?

Since 2018, there are adverts on BBC podcasts delivered outside the UK.

When a podcast is downloaded or played, we detect whether or not you're in the UK, regardless of how you're accessing the podcast. If our systems think you're outside the UK when you download or play the podcast, you may hear advertisements.

If you're in the UK but you hear advertisements on the podcasts you download or listen to, have a look at our Why do you think I'm outside the UK? page for steps to try to resolve this. 

For more information about advertisements on podcasts, visit the BBC World Service Radio FAQ page.
