Watching UK TV Online

Some of the best broadcasting in the world can be found on UK TV – BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and many other stations. It is often one of the first things Expats or people who move from  the UK miss first.   All of these channels are available over the internet, however they are restricted to people based in the UK fortunately now anyone can watch UK TV Online, no matter where you live.

So how come we can’t all watch UK TV over the internet already ?

Well the answer is that many TV Media companies including all the UK ones have blocked access to their programmes from outside the UK.  They use a technology called geolocation which blocks access to any computer not within the UK.   This works by comparing your IP address with a central list of where that IP address is located.  If you’re registered in the wrong place (i.e. outside the UK) then you get blocked.

But fear not, of course this is the internet where these things are always sidestepped neatly and without fuss.  You still can watch UK TV outside the UK or in fact anywhere in the world merely by disguising your IP address –

  • Cost – although Identity Cloaker is much faster and more sophisticated than the Watch UK TV services – it actually is one of the lowest in cost.
