If you’re a British national living outside the UK, British on the inside but born elsewhere, or just a complete britophile (and who can blame you?), then you may have at some point considered, or in fact may have already got your mitts on, a subscription to BritBox. Whichever category you fall into, you’re here because you’ve noticed that BritBox isn’t all it’s shaped up to be.

Lucky for you, we have a popular alternative to BritBox, and it’s yours at the click of a button. In this article we’ll find out how you can not only gain access to some of the most cherished British television of all time; but also fresh new series, the latest news broadcasts, entertainment shows and children’s television.

BritBox first launched in 2017, with the intention of offering the best of British television to North American audiences. Since then the BritBox franchise has expanded its user membership to around 1,000,000 subscribers in 2020. While this figure may sound impressive, it by no means matches the 60,000,000 people living outside of the UK who have already discovered how to access BBC iPlayer via a VPN, or a purpose built browser extension like Beebs.

We’ll talk in more detail about VPNs and Beebs in just a mo, but first, let’s take a look at why BritBox isn’t the global sensation it ought to be.

The main reasons past and present subscribers advise others to avoid BritBox are broken down nicely by the number one ‘business reviews before buying’ website sitejabber. Out of a total of 152 reviews, BritBox has only managed to secure a rating of 1.64 stars out of 5. BritBox ranks highly for shipping, but severely low for service, value, returns and quality, a damning indictment for any business. It suffices to say that scrolling through the reviews is like standing before a wall of hate.

So why not find out how to join the 60,000,000 people who access BBC iPlayer, 4oD and the ITV Hub from anywhere in the world instead?

BBC iPlayer offers classic shows like Doctor Who, Life on Mars, Sherlock and many, many others, as well as, the latest in cutting edge dramas, news coverage and entertainment. All you need to do is download a VPN, or get a subscription to Beebs to get started.

Let’s assess these two options and figure out which one works best for you.

A VPN is a cloaking software that you can download onto your streaming device that enables you to appear as if you’re streaming media content from your country of choice (in this case the UK). There are many VPNs out there, and the biggest drawback here is that the best ones are more costly than BritBox, and often difficult to navigate.

Enter the Beebs
