How to Get BBC iPlayer in Germany
You can follow these steps to get BBC iPlayer from anywhere in Germany.
Sign up and download VPN on your device.
Launch the VPN app and log in with your credentials.
Select the ‘Stream’ mode and choose ‘United Kingdom’ from the server list.
Once connected, visit the BBC iPlayer website or launch the app
You can now stream all the content on BBC iPlayer.
If you prefer you can also use one of our VPN apps for Android, iOS, Mac or Windows to unblock BBC iPlayer. When you connect to a VPN server of your choice then all your data traffic becomes encrypted and it will leave trough the selected server. In the case of BBC iPlayer you should choose a UK server, which will make you appear to be located in the UK. This will give you access to BBC iPlayer and any other UK streaming service or website that has geo restrictions.
One added benefit to using VPN to unblock BBC iPlayer is the fact that your data becomes encrypted. See if you are connected to public WiFi at a hotel, conference center, airport, hostel or anything of that nature then you are putting your data at risk. These types or networks are prone to attacks by identity theft so using VPN to encrypt your data is vital.
Whichever method you choose to use is up to you. Both Smart DNS and VPN are included in the free Unlocator trial so you can give both a try and see which you prefer.
At the time of writing, the following services successfully allowed us to watch, but do bear in mind that it's not a guarantee it will work for you on a particular day.
