Why can’t I watch BBC iPlayer from Ireland?

You are from Ireland, right? The good news is some new and interesting series has been launched by BBC iPlay, but the bad news is BBC iPlay is restricted in Ireland.

Yes, you read it right; you can’t watch it only if you are in the United Kingdom.

But do not worry either you are a fan of Doctor Who, the serpent or top gear; you still have alternatives to watch them sitting here at your home in Ireland.

How? Well, you can use a VPN or a BBC Proxy server. Don’t have an idea about it? Not a problem, let me explain and make it easy for you.

How to watch BBC iPlayer from Ireland?

Using the Right VPN

VPN is a private network to which you pay a monthly or annual subscription. It allows you to change the location of your device by providing a safe and private network.

The only problem that you can face with a VPN is selecting the right VPN because there are multiple VPNs, but the best suitable for the United Kingdom must be identified by you.

Using a Proxy Server

Proxy servers are free. Try to find the one that is suitable for BBC iPlayer. It functions more or less like a VPN, but since it’s free, it allows you a limited bandwidth, and so you can’t enjoy endless streaming of doctor who or top gear on BBC iPlayer.
