I would like to watch the Summer Olympics on BBC online, but whenever I try there is a problem because the BBC website tells me that I can not watch the stream from outside the UK. Is there anything I can do to watch the Summer Olympics on BBC from outside the UK? I am located in Spain!
Thank you for the question! In Spain RTVE will broadcast from the Summer Olympics, but I guess you want to watch the Summer Olympics on BBC for a reason, after all it is one of the best TV channels and they have brilliant commentators for sports events like the Summer Olympics (and for the Euro 2016 that will be arranged earlier in 2016).
So how can we watch the Summer Olympics on BBC from outside the UK?
It is really easy to watch BBC from abroad. The problem is that you need an IP address in England to be able to watch BBC, because whenever you visit their website they do check your virtual address and if you are located outside England then you will receive a message telling you that you can not watch the Summer Olympics stream online. But, if you get yourself an IP address in England (which is very easy), then they will believe that you are in England even though you are located in Spain or elsewhere, and thus you can watch the Summer Olympics online on the BBC website at once.
The best way to get such an IP address in England is to use the services of HideMyAss. This is a British company that has thousands of IP addresses available in England available. They also have a 30-day full refund policy if you are not satisfied with their services.
Visit their website and sign up for their services. Then you download the HideMyAss program which you can use also on iPhones, iPads, Android tablets and Android phones, and of course on Windows computers. With the program you connect to a server in the UK and a few seconds after you press the connect button you will be connected to a server in England and thus you will have a UK IP address and then you can simply visit the BBC website again and you will be able to watch the Summer Olympics online on the BBC website from outside England.
Isn’t that easy? Have you tried it? If you have bumped into any problems or have any questions related to watch the Summer Olympics online on the BBC website or something else, just write a comment and I will do my very best to answer your questions within a few hours!
