How to Watch Euro 2020 on BBC iPlayer Outside the UK

13 Jun 2021 | Blog \ VPN

The wait is over and the Euro 2020 Cup has kicked off on the 11th of June 2021. We have all been eager to finally be able to enjoy some great football moments again. If you want to watch the games on BBC iPlayer and want to watch the games from outside the UK then Unlocator is here for the rescue.

3 Steps to Watch Euro 2020 on BBC iPlayer

It’s actually super simple to remove the geographic blocks from BBC iPlayer.

  1. Create an Unlocator account.
  2. Install the VPN app or Configure Smart DNS on the device
  3. Reconnect to BBC iPlayer and start streaming

How Does the Unblocking of BBC iPlayer Work?

When you attempt to start a stream from BBC iPlayer, then the website will detect your location via the IP address of your Internet connection. An IP address is a unique number, which is needed for your device to send and receive data online. However, this number will also give away what country you are connecting from. So unless you are connected via a UK IP address then you will not be allowed to stream.

Watch Euro 2020 on BBC iPlayer With a VPN

Unlocator allows you to hide behind a UK IP by either connecting to any of our VPN servers. It does not have to be a UK server. This is because we have an advanced feature called Hybrid Mode, which allows us to unblock all the major streaming services from any VPN server. So simply pick the server closest to your location. You get access to Unlocator VPN by creating an Unlocator account. No credit card needed.

Use Smart DNS to Watch Euro 2020 on BBC iPlayers

Another popular option to unblock BBC iPlayer is Smart DNS. Unlike VPN there is no need to install an app. Simply configure your device to use our Smart DNS and we will take care of the rest.

You configure your device by changing two numbers in your network setup. It’s pretty easy to do and we have guides for all the major platforms. You can also do the change on your router, which will then make sure that all devices in your household become unblocked.

Either way it works pretty much the same as with the VPN solution. We make sure that BBC iPlayer will see you connecting via a UK IP address regardless of where in the world you are located.
