    Yeap, you need a VPN service, but that is relatively inexpensive. Loads of data is also a prerequisite. All the quality from the Bbe is then available. I have streamed from Inmarsat Fleetbroad Band in the same way but it is eyewateringly expensive.

    Mobdro is a free alternative that works quite well but quality is not always there.
    My latest is to pay for a vpn - fairly inexpensive if you do it for a year, and then watch bbc iplayer, itv go, etc etc. Doing it this way gives you decent quality and catch-up tv downloading etc.
    Following a recommendation on a ybw forum I paid for Cyberghost vpn, luckily monthly, initially worked well for getting bbc iplayer, but after a few months iplayer was no longer accessible, so subscription cancelled. I’d have been pretty hacked off if I’d paid for a years contract. And the same has happened again, so I avoid long term contracts.

    Which vpn are you using currently?

    €48 for a full year. We've had it for a couple of years now and it's very good, they're responsive to problems and suggestions too.
    Mostly harmless....

    PrivateVPN (please don't tell anyone else, i don't want it to get oversubscribed)haha
    Nordvpn also works well as a friend uses it.

    Tether to my laptop on the boat using 4G or wifi if handy. The problem with VPNs is that the BBC etc., soon get wise to the new ones and block them. I imagine that they'll get wise to me using my phone data too so it's good that I don't watch much TV!

    Thanks, I’ll give private a shot. Nord is about 3x the cost of private!

    If you have fast enough wifi are an all you can eat dongle, then a firestick with Mobdra is the way forward, endless channels, including sport, etc.
    We have done it........... we are now full time liveboards !!!

    I gave up trying to watch BBC, as I have a sky subscription I watch that instead, no VPN required. I believe that all subscription services are available now in the EU. It is odd that theBBC is not considered a subscription service despite paying for a license to watch here in the U.K.
