Where is UKTV Play Available?
UKTV Play is obviously available in the UK only. But if you can’t get it and want to stream content from the UKTV Play app then you may be able to use a VPN to bypass any location blocks.
NordVPN is my recommendation because it has strong unblocking capabilities. If you presently use IP Vanish as your VPN and want to unblock streaming services, I would consider switching to my recommended VPN. Despite IP Vanish being a safe and secure VPN, it does not have very good unblocking capabilities. Furthermore, you will struggle to use streaming services that are based outside of your location.
Do I Need to Sign Up?
Yes, you do need to sign up and create a account but it is completely free to do so. When signing up, you will need to enter a few details, as well as a valid UK postcode (hint – use Google!).
How Can I Get UKTV Play?
UKTV Play is available to stream on most of your devices as an app as well as on any web browser. Simply search your app store for UKTV Play then install it. But if you can’t get the app from your app store then you may be able to sideload it. In order to do so, your device must be capable of installing apps from unknown sources. Once your device is enabled for sideloading, you can then install the app from my Downloads page.
A VPN is required if you want to bypass geographical restrictions on streaming services. By using a VPN you can choose your location then connect to the correct server to overcome blocks on your streaming. NordVPN especially has excellent unblocking capabilities and can unlock most streaming services, no matter where you are!
