How to watch UK TV abroad - Find out how to watch BBC iPlayer, ITV and Channel 4
It’s a common frustration. Fire up your laptop to watch a little UK TV abroad and you are met with the messages of doom.
So what are the best way to watch UK TV while abroad?
Both ITV and Channel 4 have paid options available before Brexit but neither allow you to watch programmes live.
Another option to catch up with TV from outside the UK is by downloading VPN software. Previously only used by spies, journalists and for keeping corporate secrets, VPNs are popular with holidaymakers and travellers wanting to watch UK TV from abroad. The main problem with them is that you need a certain amount of technical knowledge to get one up and running and keeping it maintained - if you know your TCP 80s over your UDP 53s then a VPN is a robust option.
Need something simple?
