BBC iPlayer Help

I’m outside the UK – Can I use BBC iPlayer?

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


You can listen to and download most radio programmes outside the UK via a computer. You can also download and listen to BBC podcasts outside the UK. However, some things like sports programmes may be unavailable due to rights agreements.

Highlights from many BBC News programmes are also available outside the UK, as are BBC Sport videos.

Here's some advice if you’re in the UK but see a message saying you’re not.
