A: First off, breathe Dave, breathe. Long deep breaths and count back from ten slowly. You would think you’d be able to use the force, young Padawan, but it is not true.
We understand you need your appointment with the good doctor and patience is not your virtue. Nor should it be. As you might know, this is what you get trying to watch Doctor Who from a US IP address from the BBC…
To get access to BBC iPlayer online, you have two options.
1) Uproot your family, pack your bags, take a flight or a transcontinental ship and move to the UK. Probably not an option. Although I’d love to be a fly on the wall for the discussion (breif I’d imagine) with your wife or significant other. Honey, we’re moving to England so I can watch the BBC.
2) The easier, more instantaneous option for watching streaming BBC from the US is to utilize a VPN service provider with high-speed server options in the UK. Popular VPN providers with multiple high-speed UK server location include Overplay, HideMyAss, IPVanish, and many more. Check out our monthly list of most requested VPN service providers.
And if you are looking to integrate VPN directly in a router that is our specialty. In order to provide VPN service to streaming media devices like a Roku or to use a VPN service on multiple devices simultaneously with a single account, add a DD-WRT VPN router with integrated OpenVPN, PPTP or L2TP capabilities to share one VPN service provider connection with all your devices.
