Get BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and Other UK TV Android Apps Outside The UK
If you’ve been unable to download the BBC iPlayer apk, ITV Hub apk or other UK TV Android apps from Google Play because you’re located outside the UK, then you can do so freely here.
And if you are located outside the UK you will also need to use a country IP changing app together with these BBC and ITV media apps. And for this we recommend the Windscribe VPN app which you can try out for FREE. This excellent VPN app will change your country IP address allowing you to watch your favorite TV networks from around the world such as the BBC and ITV from the UK and Fox, The CW and NBC from the US on your Android phones or tablets.
Why BBC or ITV Player apps are needed to watch content on Android
After Adobe Flash was no longer supported on Android TV streaming sites had to develop apps that did not use the Flash protocol.
However, due to rights restrictions and licensing these Android TV media apps had to be ‘Geo Restricted,’ which meant they could only be downloaded by residents within the appropriate countries. For example, the UK TV Apps such as the BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub on Google Play are only downloadable to people located within the UK
How Google Play prevents you from downloading country restricted apps
When you created your account on Google Play, you gave permission to Google Play to access the full details of your Android phone or Android Tablet. This allowed Google Play to see your telephone number, your network details (such as your Internet service provider) as well as other details on your Android phone or tablet.
And since Google Play now has this full access to your Android phone or tablet’s network details, you cannot fool it by changing your country IP address to a UK IP address. And when it sees from your network details that your Internet provider is located outside the UK, you will be denied access to the UK only downloadable apps, such as the BBC Media Player and BBC iPlayer.
So to get around this problem, my UK IT partner has uploaded onto this site the latest BBC Media Player and other UK TV Player apps from Google Play for you to freely download outside the UK.
