Being informed of news and current affairs is a must–and there's no better source for this than the BBC. Whether it's the BBC Weekend News or BBC News at Ten, it's always worth your time tuning in.

Sadly, for those living abroad, the premium BBC News programmes remain unaccessible via BBC iPlayer website. Those who attempts to watch the on-demand service from abroad will be denied access. This is true for everyone. Even British citizens away on a holiday or living overseas are blocked from the content!

Those who attempt to access the BBC iPlayer website will see this all too familiar message:

"BBC iPlayer only works in the UK. Sorry, it's due to rights issues"

So, how do you combat this? The answer is Beebs!


Don't miss out on any breaking news or current affairs. This how you can stream any of the BBC News programmes on BBC iPlayer.

1. Start using Chrome Browse (Skip this step if you use it already)

2. Install Beebs

3. Register to BBC iPlayer (Takes less than 30 seconds)

It really is that easy to watch BBC TV live online from anywhere abroad.
