ITV HUB SPAIN

ACCESSING ITV HUB WHEN IN SPAIN

Since 2008 ITV Hub (formerly ITV Player) has been helping millions of people gain access to British TV shows, to watch either live on one of the now numerous ITV channels, or to stream on demand “catch-up” whenever they like. This service is very popular and only a close 2nd to the BBC’s BBC iPlayer.

British TV is some of the finest in the world and the TV players are now famously known throughout the world, sadly though not available around the world. Ordinarily if you try to watch ITV outside the UK, you will find that it is geographically blocked. ITV and BBC are both unavailable if you are in Spain, that is unless you have a VPN installed.

A VPN is a great piece of technology that allows you to appear online as though you are in a different part of the world, such as Spain. A UK VPN will give your devices a UK IP address, so that applications such as ITV Hub and BBC iPlayer will believe that you are in say England, when in actual fact, you could be in Andalusia.

Shows such as Love Island, I’m a Celebrity and Coronation Street are now internationally know and some overseas networks do feature these, however often months if not years behind the UK. BBC Prime has been around for some time on Spanish cable networks although this is not great for content. Years ago you could easily pick up ITV and BBC channels when in Spain via the Astra satellite, however this has now been changed so that in order to access these channels (particularly in southern Spain), you will be needing a dish the size of a bus.

Using a VPN for TV usage is very popular as it is far cheaper than satellite and IPTV and is useful not just for TV viewing abroad but for internet privacy and anonymity also. When you are on public WIFI networks you are at risk from hackers stealing your data. This is something that is particularly concerning if you are using banking apps or PayPal. Internet security is a big thing now and it is the driving force behind NordVPN spending millions on Television advertising across the board on all commercial broadcasters in the western world.

Many people of course use a VPN to make sure that their online tracks are covered. When you download and browse when connected to a VPN, you are both secure and anonymous. Anonymity is crucial in 2019 when downloading torrent files as most ISP’s now issue threat letters to those who they can see are getting regular torrent traffic.

RECOMMENDED: If you need a VPN that will unblock BBC iPlayer and other UK TV apps, then we recommend Privatrax. This is one of the few VPN providers that unblocks BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 and My5 (as most are now blocked) If you use coupon POMMYTV then you can pay £29.99 for a year instead of £49.99. That works out to just £2.49 / $2.99 per month. When you consider that Nord VPN and Express VPN work out at £9/£12 pr month, this works out a lot better.

WATCH MY5 ABROAD OUTSIDE UK

WATCH MY5 ABROAD OUTSIDE UK

Channel 5 (UK) has a great on demand application and website called My5. This is perfect if you are a fan of Can’t Pay We’’ Take it Away, The Hotel Inspector, or even classics from down under such as Neighbours and Home and Away.

This wonderful TV catch-up player is sadly only available if you are in the United Kingdom. You can however get around these regional restrictions when abroad if you have a VPN installed on your devices. A VPN is a great piece of technology that will switch your foreign IP address to that of one from the United Kingdom, so that all British TV apps and web services will work for you anywhere in world.

Most VPN’s only cost around a few pounds or dollars per month and allow access to not only My5, but also BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 and all other British TV apps anywhere. In addition to this, most VPN providers come with a USA server also, so that you may watch American Television apps outside of the USA, something that is great for watching American TV shows before they air anywhere else in the world.

When looking for a VPN, it is always best to look for one that has an uncapped data limit, so that you may watch TV via a VPN for as long as possible. This can be a problem if you are watching a lot of TV throughout the month, particularly if it is HD or even 4K, as this will really eat up data.

VPN technology has come a long way since 1995 and now are very easy to install on most laptops, tablets, smart phone and even smart TV sets. You can now also install VPN accounts on some routers. VPN enabled routers are a fraction of the price that they once were, now costing less than a $100.

Watching British Television is something that Brits living overseas miss and often crave. In countries such as Australia and New Zealand, there are British TV shows that are shown, but these are usually a year or so behind and bogged down with American style long advert breaks in between. Gaining access to the TV apps from back home will always be the best way to catch up as you will be seeing the programming at the same time as those back home.

Using British Apps Abroad When Overseas

BRITISH APPS ABROAD

You will soon find out when on holiday, that half of the apps installed on your devices when you were in the UK, no longer work when overseas. This is because British apps (mostly TV & gambling), do not work when you are overseas due to geo-targeting. Apps nowadays have the technology to be able to sniff out your location by seeing which IP address you are using to access the internet.
