All the major UK TV stations now broadcast online – BBC, ITV, Channels 4 and 5. However if you live, work or travel abroad a lot, you’ll have discovered that it’s quite difficult to watch UK Television online when you’re actually outside Britain.
There is a solution here – a sophisticated security program that is simple to use and allows you to click and change your location to the UK with a single click. It can of course protect your internet connection, but at the same time it also gives you unlimited freedom to watch UK Television or any online channels you wish.
This is how easy it is…..
(BTW – you can also use Identity Cloaker on your iPhone or iPad abroad – sorry no video yet – but here’s the instructions - BBC iPlayer on iPad)
So how come we can’t all watch UK Television 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 Television outside the UK or in fact anywhere in the world merely by disguising your IP address -
