You got NordVPN to watch BBC iPlayer outside of the UK? It’s not that simple. It’s not as easy as connecting to a server and just watching. Here are a few things to know if you want to watch BBC iPlayer outside of the UK.
Ireland Is Not Part of the UK
A lot of people confuse this. Northern Ireland is part of the UK. Actual Ireland isn’t. Connecting to one Dublin server in Ireland will not work if you want to watch BBC iPlayer outside of the UK.
What If You Are Connected to a Server in the UK, but BBC iPlayer Still Isn’t Working?
If you want to watch BBC iPlayer outside of the UK, you need to connect to the UK – BBC server. The rest don’t work for BBC.
How to watch BBC iPlayer on the Amazon Fire TV Stick
On the Fire TV Stick, you will have to use the Amazon Appstore to download the BBC iPlayer.
- Firstly search for NordVPN and install it. You can also find it by going to Categories and Utility. There you need to scroll until you find it.
- Connect to either UK server.
- Then go to Manage Your Content and devices followed by pressing Settings.
- Click on Country Settings and press Change. Provide your new address or rather a random UK address with a random UK zip code. You can get both by simply searching for a “zip code generator” on Google.
- Select Update. You will get a notification on a screen that says learn more. Click on that and press Update your default Kindle Store. You’ll have to re-enter your Amazon account information then.
- While still connected to the NordVPN search for the BBC iPlayer app and install it.
- Turn it on and watch whatever you desire.

Where Do Virtual Private Networks Work?
Internet doesn’t come with freedom in every country. In China you will almost certainly not be able to use it. Iran, Syria, and Russia, Turkey, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Belarus might also cause you problems.
