You will see the geo-error message "BBC iPlayer TV programmes are available to play in the UK only" when attempting to access BBC iPlayer from Mexico. There is a way to get around this message, and that is by using a VPN, so don't give up just yet.

Using a VPN is the best way to unblock content from any region, including those outside the UK. With just a single tap, you can quickly connect to this tool's extensive network of safe servers. Once you've done that, your VPN will redirect all of your traffic through the server you've chosen, giving you an IP address from the area of that server.

Simply put, if you connect to a server in the UK, you will receive an IP address from the UK. Because of this, BBC iPlayer will assume that you are in its service area and grant you full access to all of its content. Not only that, but you'll also be able to access ITV, Channel 4, Sky Sports, and any other UK-restricted websites that are blocked.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll be able to watch BBC iPlayer in Mexico in no time:

1.Register to a secure, fast, and well-known VPN service like ExpressVPN.

2.After you create your account, you have to download and install the application on your device.

To do that, head over to your app store or the provider’s website.

3.Once the installation process is complete, open the app and sign in to your new account.

4.Next, connect to any server from the UK. Wait a few seconds till the connection is established.

5.Now revisit BBC iPlayer and click on the video you want to watch. Notice how the location error message has disappeared.

6.Stream your favorite shows from Mexico.


I used ExpressVPN, a well-known VPN provider, during my second visit to Mexico. It was highly recommended to me by a friend, and boy was he right.

With over 3,000 quick and secure servers spread across 94 countries, this company has one of the largest server networks in the market. Your privacy is also completely respected by the company, which never logs or shares any of your data. In order to prevent monitoring, it also encrypts your online activity using a military-grade protocol. A kill switch, DNS leak protection, and a 30-day refund policy are additional advantages.

Watch BBC iPlayer in Mexico using a smart DNS Proxy

Smart DNS proxies don't change your IP address or encrypt your traffic, so privacy isn't their strongest suit. Additionally, they won't function properly if your internet service provider employs DNS hijacking or transparent proxies.

But if you prefer this approach, follow these instructions:

Join a top-notch Smart DNS service with lots of channels that are supported. Unlocator was employed.

Unlike VPNs, proxies don't offer downloadable apps. They need to be manually configured on your device. But the procedure is really straightforward, and you can get more assistance by referring to these manuals, guides, and videos.

Go to BBC iPlayer after it's finished.

Your preferred BBC iPlayer programs are now accessible from Mexico and other countries around the globe.

Is BBC iPlayer free?

Yes, BBC iPlayer is free. However, if you want to watch BBC iPlayer from the USA, you need to purchase a VPN subscription. While there are free VPNs out there, chances are they won’t work or come with a data cap.
