...that uses a UK-based server.

Use a VPN or download a load of stuff before you go. :)

The BBC are clamping down on VPNs, so as above, take along some media files to watch; plus data allowances rarely work abroad, so you could get yourself a bill in the thousands.

I use windscribe. Download for ios or windows. Link to uk server, really easy. You get 10GB a month free. I dont know what happens after that as i havent used it up yet. I havent had any problems

I've used mine in many European country's but had to be on my laptop
#7
Also i have used filmon.com whilst abroad to watch live uk television

But he wants to watch BBC? Netflix won't help him out there

I realise that. But I was just throwing it out there, so if he can't get BBC working, he knows what his options are.

Only trying to be helpful, unlike yourself.

It depends on the program, some do work abroad - particularly radio programs.

1+ This is what I would use, Or other proxy servers not a VPN.

Try getting something like airvpn, then put it on your phone. You can choose which location servers you want to connect to, and when I use it, i notice very little speed loss.
