Living outside the UK? Missing classic British TV shows? You might be in the process of researching the best possible streaming platform through which to access His Dark Materials, Noughts and Crosses or Match of the Day. You may already be signed up to a platform but want to know if what you’re paying for is indeed the best service you could have. Either way, you’ve probably come across the streaming services of BritBox and Acorn TV, both strong forerunners in the provision of British TV to overseas audiences. Which one however, provides the best options for the best price? The answer, I will tell you for free, as we’ll show you in this article is… neither of them!

For those of you searching for, or reevaluating your online streaming provider for watching British TV overseas, we’ll be showing you the best platform the web has to offer for accessing BBC iPlayer and more whilst out of the UK.

There are many articles out there that tackle the rivalry between Britbox and Acorn TV, which platform has been around for longer (Acorn TV), which platform has more subscribers (Acorn TV), which platform offers a wider scope of shows (BritBox), which platform offers a more contemporary portfolio (BritBox) and so on and so on - you get the picture. What you can watch on either of these platforms however, is determined by where precisely you are in the world. For example, if you’re in the US, you can stream Coronation Street via. Britbox, if you’re in Canada though, think again. Due to licensing, Britibox can’t offer it to those across the border. Likewise, Acorn TV is only available in a select number of countries, with accessible content changing in each location. Why not just make it easier on yourself and sign up for a singular streaming platform that you can access and watch BBC iPlayer, ITV hub and All 4 wherever you want, whenever you want?!

Say hello to Beebs

Beebs is a premium VPN (that’s a premium Virtual Private Network) that allows you to access and stream unlimited content from various platforms from anywhere in the world. As a VPN, Beebs scrambles your true location, making it appear as though you’re in the UK, so you can watch Coronation Street, as well as a multitude of other shows whether you’re in the US or in Canada. We call Beebs a premium VPN because unlike your typical VPN, which often requires high technical skills for set-up and can threaten the privacy of your device and slow it down, Beebs is a Google Chrome add-on. This means it downloads only to your internet browser, and not your device. The freedom offered by Beebs means you can access the individual webpages of BBC iPlayer, ITV hub and All 4 at your discretion and have the freedom to screen anything and everything these platforms have to offer.
