I was curious about iPlayer, I was going to try it to see what it was because I've heard quite a bit about it. Is it true though, that it only works in the UK ? because I don't live in that part of the world.
When it loads it’s brilliant, ahowcasing the whole gamut of BBC output in all its channels, but is very very sensitive and if one electron of the connection you use has left our green and pleasant land it won’t work. VPNs seem to confuse it even when they’re not in use, this random geoblocking is annoying and often prevents the app showing content at all. The on-site guidance explains why but not really how to remedy this issue.
Frustrating when my smart telly works fine on the same connection that my Mac won’t.
The App works on any Mac, matching the required hardware. I think, it´s posted here because they are fishing for people, not interested to read the fine print. Be careful, the judge can't help you after you register!!!
I'm assuming that BBC iPlayer *only* works within the UK and *only* for UK residents who can prove they have paid their television license. It would be worth saying if that's the case (or any other notable constraints) in the product description if so. I came to this page thinking this software allowed me to watch BBC shows for free (which admittedly was wishful thinking).
