Unblock BBC Sounds

BBC Sounds is one of the top online radio applications in the UK. Also known as iPlayer Sounds, the service provides its users with several options to ensure their best audio experience. From live podcasts, audio documentaries, and children’s programming to huge music libraries and talk shows, all in one app. However, the service is not available if you live outside the UK borders and you’ll directly be blocked if you try to access it. All you have to do in this situation is to make use of Unlocator’s VPN service or smart DNS, and your problem is solved.

Access BBC Sounds Outside the UK Using Unlocator Smart DNS

Whenever you try to stream any live podcast on BBC Sounds, you’ll hear a message advising that:

“This content is unavailable due to technical or rights reasons”

So, how to use BBC Sounds outside the UK? It’s quite simple when you come to think of it. What is required of you is to subscribe to Unlocator and then follow the setup guides based on the device you’re using. Smart DNS reroutes your data through one of Unlocator’s wide range of servers, and in this case, you only need one, and that’s a UK server. Once you’re connected, you’ll spoof your location and appear to be browsing directly from the United Kingdom. Eventually, BBC Sounds will determine that you’re based within its region and will unlock all its content for live streaming.

Once you connect to a UK server, you will instantly obtain a UK IP address. You’re now virtually located in the United Kingdom. Finally, you can enjoy BBC Sounds anywhere you are.

Unlocator VPN doesn’t only bypass geo-restrictions. It also grants you complete security and safety while surfing the web. With threats looming around when you’re connected to public Wi-Fi networks, an extra layer of protection is certainly needed. It provides high-level encryptions and ciphers so that anyone trying to get a hold of your personal data is totally blocked.
