What if I want to watch the Summer Olympics on my iPhone/iPad or Android device?

These instructions are extremely easy to follow if you want to watch the Summer Olympics on a computer. If you want to watch on your tablet or cell phone, many TV networks require you to download their TV application to access their respective live streams. For example, you cannot watch content on the BBC website in your browser window, as you need the BBC iPlayer application. Unfortunately, that is easier said than done, because this is only available to people with an Apple account or Google account located in the United Kingdom. It is possible to solve the problem, and you can find detailed instructions on how to watch BBC abroad on your iOS and Android devices in this article.

Luckily, there are many options that are much easier.

  • You can watch the Hungarian channel M4 in the browser on your mobile device, no additional application needed.
  • You can download the NRK (Norway), ZDF (Germany), NOS (Netherlands) application through Google Play Store and Apple Store, even though your account is registered in a different country. Install the application of the channel you want to watch, connect to a VPN server in that country, and access the live streams from the Summer Olympics immediately.

You are now ready to watch the Summer Olympics on your computer, cell phone, tablet, and/or TV. You can use your VPN subscription to PureVPN/NordVPN on all those devices, and they allow you to use one subscription on multiple devices simultaneously. And as both come with full-refund policies valid for 30/31 days, there is no need to worry at all!

      HideMyAss might have some servers that are blocked from BBC, but they have loads of servers still working, so try connecting to another server. You can of course ask for a refund, but try some more servers first 🙂

    • Thomas Stein says:

      I just checked it even more, and lots of their servers are in fact blocked in the UK, but quite some are still working. But, due to the fact that quite a lot of their servers actually are blocked, I rather recommend IPVanish for this purpose as you want to watch the Summer Olympics on BBC from abroad!
