BBC iPlayer, commonly shortened to iPlayer, is an internet television and radio service and software application, developed by the BBC to extend its former RealPlayer-based and other streamed video clip content to include whole TV shows. BBC Redux was developed as a proof of concept for a cross-platform, Flash video-based streaming system. BBC iPlayer left beta and went live on 25 December 2007.

For lovers of BBC’s iPlayer, when travelling or living outside the UK, you are going to miss your favorite shows because the service is geo-restricted. Unless you get a good VPN for iPlayer, and you can easily pretend that you’re in the UK and unblock iPlayer. Secret tip: because you’re unblocking BBC, you need a reliable VPN with a strong privacy policy and encryption.
