BBC Player only works in selected countries

Sorry, you seem to be trying to access BBC Player in a country where it is not available yet.

For more information about BBC Player in Asia, click here.


If you're in a country where the service is available, why are you seeing this message?

It's because BBC Player is recognising your IP address (the numerical address every device on the internet has) as being outside that country or you are using a public VPN.

Please try the following which should resolve the issue:
  • Close and reopen your web browser
  • Restart your Wi-Fi router
  • If you're using a public Wi-Fi network, this may route your connection overseas. Please try again later using a different network
  • Disable any web accelerator or a VPN you are using. If we detect you're using a VPN you will not be able to view programmes, as we cannot be confident of the location of the end user.
  • Confirm with your internet service provider that your IP address is registered in the correct country

If the issue is still not resolved please submit a request.
