Live Streaming Options for BBC in the United States
Long gone are the days when television viewers in the US had to wait for weeks or months in order to watch BBC programs. With the internet, it is now very easy to catch up with your favorite BBC TV shows, though not as easy as watching American TV series. Here are a few of the options available to you if you wanted to watch BBC shows in the United States:
One thing you will love about BBC live stream is that they have their own streaming service. This is through the BBC iPlayer. The sad news however, is that you cannot access the services if you live outside the United States. But with the advancement in technology, this cannot hinder you if you wanted to watch BBC shows from the United States. All you need is a legal workaround which will enable you to bypass the geoblocking of the app and make it appear as if you are accessing the app from within the UK. Simply search for an appropriate DNS service and you will be able to access all the BBC shows right from the United States.
Watch the video below for a demonstration of the BBC Iplayer:
If you are patient and you won’t mind waiting for a couple of weeks or months, you can always catch up with the latest BBC TV shows and programs on Netflix. But if you like staying current, then this wouldn’t be an advisable route since BBC Shows usually take some time before they are submitted to Netflix.
With Hulu Plus, you will also get a variety of BBC Shows and television series, only that they will not be current or not as up to date as those you find at Netflix. Nonetheless, it is another option you could use if you wanted to get old BBC Shows online for free.
Streaming BBC shows via Amazon Prime isn’t as comprehensive as Hulu Plus or Netflix. It has a scanty selection of the shows and we are afraid that you might be disappointed by what you will get here.
Best Shows & Programs on BBC
BBC is well known for producing top shows, covering a variety of topics. Here are some of the top ones considered as the best shows by the broadcaster:
The IT Crowd – this show ran for four seasons and it premiered in 2006. It is a show about three tech support staffers working for a large corporation. If you have watched The Office, then The IT Crowd will appear as a less refined and much broader option of The Office.
Fleming: The Man Who Would be Bond – this is the story of a spoiled playboy who sulks in the shadow of his older brother when he is not exchanging beds with hot senoritas or jumping from one bar to another drowning martinis.
For an impression of this show, watch the video below:
Peaky Blinders – This show premiered in 2013 and it became very popular on Netflix. It aired for only two seasons, and it featured Sam Neill and Cillian Murphy, starring as rock “n” roll gangsters. Murphy is a soldier, but has undying ambitions to be the kingpin of the dreaded Shelby crime family. Neill, on the other hand, is a vicious inspector who has vowed to bring down Murphy’s dreams at all costs. Watch out for this series as you enjoy the eye gorging extent and the extreme addiction that characterizes Peaky Blinders show.
The other top BBC shows that could potentially make it to this list include Call the Midwife, Doctor Who, Wallander, Broadchurch, Sherlock, Luther, and the Fall.
