How to use the BBC iPlayer in the US

1. Get Hola (it’s completely free!)

  • Using Google Chrome (or Firefox) go here
  • Accept the prompt (the “Add” button)
  • A little flame logo will appear on the far right end of your address bar

2. Get the iPlayer script for Hola

  • Now, go to this link
  • You’ll get a pop-up window asking you if you’re sure you want to import BBC iPlayer — click yes
  • the page it will bring you to (lots of boxes with channels in them) is not important. disregard it.

3. Actually get to the iPlayer

  • Click on the little flame logo to the right of the address bar (the url bar)
  • go to “Settings” (when you click on the flame, a little pop-up will appear — “Settings” is in the upper-right corner)
  • Scroll to the bottom. There you will see a link to the BBC iPlayer labeled “Watch blocked BBC iPlayer videos”. Click on it.
  • You’ll be brought to another screen with a big blue button labeled “ Go”. Click that too. 
  • You’re on the BBC homepage. Add “/iplayer/tv/bbc_one_london/watchlive” to the end of the url (after “”)

The iPlayer should now work for you! You may now watch the BBC to your heart’s content. Remember: always go through the settings menu in Hola to get to the iPlayer. It won’t work otherwise. 

Good luck, happy new year, and many happy returns!

Listen up, Sherlockians!!

You can watch The Empty Hearse live on the BBC iPlayer site from any country if you download this beautiful piece of extension magic, go to the BBC One Live page and set the extension to a uk proxy. This’ll be a lot more reliable than most livestreams! (✿◠‿◠)
