BBC iPlayer is currently restricted by IP, preventing any users based outside the UK from viewing the service. This is due to the way in which licencing is typically sold, which is on a country by country basis. Since the BBC only buy the rights to show content in the UK, they they must restrict anyone else from seeing it.

The easiest way to watch BBC iPlayer from abroad is to use a UK Proxy Server. Connecting to a proxy server, redirects your web traffic through a server in the UK. Your computer requests the content from the proxy server and the proxy server then fetches that content for you, and sends it onwards. Since the BBC website only sees the proxy server (which is based in the UK) they don’t restrict access.
