For as long as the internet has been around, folks have traveled internationally for this reason or for that reason. But they could not watch the iPlayer outside the UK.
Then finally many years later came along the Residential VPN that totally and completely changed the game. Suddenly those connected abroad to a vpn server inside the UK could get the precious BBC iPlayer.
Now folks traveling abroad have no fear of missing any of their favorite tv shows or live channels. Its all right at your fingertips and available for viewing 24 hours a day.
How is it done? Its quite simple really: your locally connected internet device connects to a United Kingdom based residential vpn service and to the rest of the internet you are physically inside the UK and thus qualify to watch all of the BBC iPlayer.
