How to watch UK television here in Spain


What is IPTV?

IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television, which is a digital television broadcasting protocol that delivers television programming over the internet instead of traditional terrestrial, cable or satellite formats.

IPTV delivers television content using IP-based networks, allowing viewers to stream shows, movies, and other content on their TVs, computers, tablets, and smartphones. Instead of receiving the broadcast signals via cable or satellite, IPTV users receive them via an internet connection.

IPTV technology is becoming increasingly popular as it offers many benefits over traditional TV delivery methods. It provides viewers with greater flexibility in terms of where, when, and how they watch their favorite programs. Additionally, IPTV providers can offer viewers a wider range of programming options, including international channels, pay-per-view events, and on-demand content.

To access IPTV content, viewers need a compatible device such as a smart TV, set-top box, or an IPTV-enabled app installed on their device. They also need a reliable internet connection with sufficient bandwidth to stream high-quality video content.

What if I just want to watch on-demand services?

Watching UK catch-up TV in Spain using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) can be a straightforward process. VPNs allow you to access geo-restricted content by masking your true location and making it appear as if you’re connecting from a different country. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you watch UK catch-up TV in Spain:

  1. Choose a VPN service: There are numerous VPN services available, both paid and free. For streaming purposes, it’s usually better to go with a paid service, as they typically offer better speeds, stability, and security. Some popular VPN providers include ExpressVPN, NordVPN, and CyberGhost.
  2. Sign up and download: Once you’ve chosen a VPN service, sign up for an account and download the VPN software for your device (PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet, etc.). Most VPN providers offer applications for various platforms, so make sure you download the appropriate one for your device.
  3. Install and configure the VPN: After downloading the software, follow the installation instructions provided by the VPN provider. Once installed, open the VPN application and sign in using your account credentials.
  4. Connect to a UK server: In the VPN application, select a server located in the United Kingdom. This will allow you to access UK-based content, as it will appear as if you’re connecting from within the UK.
  5. Check your connection: Once connected to a UK server, you can verify your IP address and location by visiting a site like https://www.whatismyip.com/. It should display a UK IP address and location.
  6. Access UK catch-up TV services: Now that you’re connected to a UK server, visit the website or app of the UK catch-up TV service you wish to watch, such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, or My5. You should be able to access the content without any geo-restrictions.
  7. Create an account or sign in: Some UK catch-up TV services require you to create an account or sign in before you can access the content. If prompted, create an account using a UK postcode (you can find one online), or sign in with your existing account details.
  8. Enjoy your favorite shows: You should now be able to watch your favorite UK catch-up TV shows in Spain. Remember to keep your VPN connected while streaming to avoid any disruptions due to geo-restrictions.

Keep in mind that the use of a VPN may be against the terms of service of some streaming platforms. Additionally, the legality of using a VPN to bypass geo-restrictions varies depending on local laws and regulations.
