    Thanks, but wifi is needed. I presume ... I'm now sorted with Iampatman's suggestion of Surf Easy. It was the simplest of all the ones I tried and am now the happy recipient of several iPlayer programmes to see me through the dark nights here in Spain!

    Again, thanks to everyone for help and advice

    Rather than using a vpn try switching browser to duck duck go if available on win,it is on linux,it hides your ip.
    Oh forgot to say its good for watching them dirty mucky,opps i mean gardening programes.

    Mobdro is good but I think it only works on Android devices?

    Its basically a way of making it look like your computer is in a different country so if your in Spain when you connect to bbc iPlayer via your VPN (software) the BBC "should" see you as someone connecting from the UK, not Spain so it will allow you to watch stuff as if you were at home as bbci does not officially work abroad.

    Shame on the BBC. None of the above should be necessary.
    If you have a current TV licence you should be entitled to the service wherever you are in the world.
    I believe you now have to confirm you have a licence to use the iPlayer service.
    I don't know if that extends to actually entering your licence number, but if it does there is no excuse for blocking the service when you are outside the UK.
    If iPlayer does not ask for your licence number then adding that part would allow access for licence holders worldwide. Maybe they would even gain some new non-UK customers?

    Yes, it's ridiculous. If I'm in Spain I can't be watching the service I've paid for in England. Even there, if you want to watch iPlayer you have to say you have a licence. No licence number required. Yet ...
