Watching BBC iPlayer with Atlas VPN

  • Updated

Are you trying to access BBC iPlayer while you are outside the United Kingdom? Atlas VPN can help you bypass geo-restrictions and access that streaming service! To do so, you simply need to connect to one of the UK servers in the Atlas VPN application and stream as usual.

Note: You will need a premium Atlas VPN subscription in order to connect to the UK. To learn more about the premium subscription, check out this article.

If you are having trouble accessing the BBC iPlayer stream, try the following troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue:

  1. Make sure that Location Services are disabled on your device, then try to access the service once more. You can learn how to disable Location Services on your device here.

  2. If you are using a browser to stream, please try to clear the cache of your browser. Also, you may try enabling the Incognito mode.

  3. In case you are streaming via the BBC application, try reinstalling it on your device while connected to one of our VPN servers.

  4. Test a few different servers in the Atlas VPN application by disconnecting from a server and connecting again.

Note: Atlas VPN should not be used to bypass copyright regulations.
