TV channels use a so called geographical hindrance to block people from watching their streams from outside the nation. This is a result of international copyright rules. That is why BBC iPlayer will check your IP address as you visit their site and if you are located outside the UK, they will tell you that you can not watch. What PureVPN and other VPN services will do for you is that they will provide you with a UK IP address, which means that as the background check is done on you by BBC (as you visit their website), they will find out that your located is in the UK, which again means that you will be able to watch the different live streams available!
