BBC Live Stream Wimbledon Abroad – BBC iPlayer VPN

For tennis fans,  especially UK ones then this is a special time of the year – it’s Wimbledon.  The oldest and most famous tennis tournament in the world and in 2017 it’s even managed to arrive after a (fairly brief) British heatwave which is unusual.

BBC Wimbledon on iPlayer Abroad

Unless you’re lucky enough to have tickets,  the BBC Wimbledon coverage is by far the best option, all of the tournament is covered over two or three of the main BBC channels.  Of course, this is also streamed online and you can watch it either directly from the web site on your PC, laptop or tablet or use the BBC iPlayer application to access the coverage.

How to Watch BBC Wimbledon Abroad using iPlayer

Unfortunately if you happen to be outside the UK, this isn’t going to work – if you try and access the BBC website you’ll get redirected to the international version which doesn’t support the Wimbledon live streaming or any of the BBC iPlayer functionality.  The website checks your location when you connect and determines if you can watch or not.

Anyway there is a solution so if you want to watch Wimbledon live streaming and you’re not currently in the UK then watch this video which shows you how to watch the BBC News Live, it works in exactly the same way –

Basically all you need to do is use Identity Cloaker to hide your real location and you can watch all the BBC streaming services including BBC iPLayer. It’s fast, safe and works perfectly every single time – if you’re just wanting Wimbledon the . will cover the majority of the tournament.

The software also allows you access to whole network of servers across the world, so you can even keep up to date with other sporting events across the world. There’s some great tennis coverage on the US channels as well, so simply switch to a US server if you prefer American coverage to the BBC. Although the video demonstration takes place on a PC/Laptop you can also stream directly from other devices like tablets, Macs and smart phones just download the guides that are available in the members area after you’ve signed up – although this page explains how it works.

You can find the short trial on this link to see how well it works for you – . .

Although remember the trial is 10 days so you’ll need to be on day 4 to watch the BBC Wimbledon finals on the last weekend or extend the subscription.

      Yes Louise, use BBC iPlayer for already broadcast things and use the TV link for watching any of the channels live. If you just want Wimbledon just get the trial as it only costs a few Euros and lasts for ten days – it will then just expire there’s no contract or anything.
