How to stream Strictly Come Dancing 2018 live online in UK, Australia, NZ, USA, or Canada? All SCD 2018 contestants have been revealed and while an official premiere date for the new season has not been confirmed yet, we can sense that the beginning is near. All new Strictly Come Dancing episodes will be aired on BBC1 in the United Kingdom. The issue here for British expats living abroad is that the BBC iPlayer is geoblocked outside the UK. Luckily, there is a workaround you can use to unblock BBC iPlayer from anywhere in the world. Read the guide below for more info on how to watch Strictly Come Dancing on your PC, Mac, Android, PS4, Xbox, FireStick, Apple TV, iOS, or Roku regardless of where you currently live.
How to Watch Strictly Come Dancing 2018 Live Stream Online
How to Watch Strictly Come Dancing 2018 Free Live with VPN
If you try to watch live or catchup SCD 2018 episodes on BBC outside the UK, you get one of the following geo-errors instead.
“BBC iPlayer only works in the UK. Sorry, it’s due to rights issues.”
“BBC iPlayer programmes are available to play in the UK only.”
“This content is not available in your location. Please try again later.”
Follow these steps to watch Strictly 2018 anywhere in the world.
- Sign up with a reliable VPN service provider.
- Download and install the VPN application to your PC, Mac, Android, iOS device.
- Launch the VPN application and sign in using your VPN account.
- Now, connect to a UK VPN server.
- Finally, go to the BBC iPlayer website or launch the iPlayer application.
- Watch Strictly Come Dancing 2018 in USA, Canada, Australia, or anywhere else outside the UK.
Due to the fact BBC started blacklisting VPN IP address in 2015, you might still receive that error message when you’re connected to a UK VPN server. This is why it’s crucial to sign up with a VPN service that actually still works with iPlayer. After trying various VPNs, I found out that ExpressVPN is the best VPN service you can use to bypass regional restrictions. This includes being able to stream BBC iPlayer outside the UK.
