Have you noticed that many of the world’s best media sites are restricted based on your physical location? For instance ever tried to watch the BBC iPlayer, Canadian TV or ITV in the USA? Or perhaps some US stations like Hulu or Australian TV channels from Europe? Well you’ll get blocked, wherever you are determines what you can view online.
BBC iPlayer USA – I’m Afraid Not
I noticed this after moving to North Carolina for a few months with work, it was great I could watch Hulu and Pandora online in the USA. However my favorite UK TV channels were not available and there was no BBC iPlayer USA apart from some cut down global version which was quite expensive .
Anyway I spent a few weeks testing various solutions, and came up with what I think is the fastest, safest and most economical way of how to watch BBC iPlayer in USA and indeed any online media anywhere in the world. My priority was to watch the BBC live but it works for pretty much any location restricted channel anywhere in the world.
Here’s a video called BBC iPlayer USA – of it in action.
On the computer it’s just a matter of selecting the right country, so to get BBC iPlayer in USA then just select a UK server. In fact where you are is irrelevant, so you can also use it to watch US media sites by selecting a US server too. For other devices, you just need to create a VPN for each country you need – takes a couple of minutes and there are guides in the user area to follow.
The technology that companies like the BBC iPlayer and Hulu use, works by looking up your IP address when you connect. If you’re in the right country, then no problem other wise you’ll be blocked. So for example, here’s some of what you can access…….
- Hulu – Only US Address
- BBC iPlayer – Only UK Address
- Pandora – Only US Address
- RTE – Irish Address
- M6 Replay – French Address
- ABC – US Address (or Australian for their ABC)
- CTV – Canada Address
Crazy isn’t it, huge national broadcasters upload all their broadcasts to a global medium like the internet then block everyone who can’t already watch it on their TV sets! It’s a shame as there’s some amazing shows available when you can watch both on BBC live stream and via the iPlayer archive.
The software demonstrated gives you complete control of your IP address. It allows you to switch it at will, from US to UK then Canadian, French or German at the click of a button. Meanwhile it completely encrypts your connection and gives you total privacy and security which is a must if you travel a lot and use insecure Wifi connections.
You’ll never be blocked based on your location ever again, watch what you like online and even use it on your mobile devices like iPads, Tablets and smartphones. Select a British identity for watching BBC iPlayer USA, ITV Player live or Channel 4 then for example switch to a Canadian one to access CTV. You will never be restricted and what’s more your identity is completely hidden when you watch BBC iplayer live or from the archive.
*** The BBC has introduced a User Account system in 2017 – don’t worry just create your account when connected to the UK server, you’ll just need to select a valid UK postcode for the account ****
Identity Cloaker does all this and more, giving you peace of mind and security for your internet connection and access to all the world’s online broadcasting applications. So if you want to watch BBC iPlayer in America, this is what you need.
