As said, BBC iplayer TV is not available in Europe, but BBC iplayer radio is available. There are serial internet radio players that will work in Europe and one that is pretty good is "Radioline" these work on a laptop or smartphone. There are several smartphone apps for radio either android or Apple.I think you can still get Radio 4 on LW but you may need a good external aerial to pick up a signal.
Assuming you don't have a satellite system then the only alternative is the Internet, but you will need a good connection. BBC iplayer won't let you to access it from outside the UK but this site might be the solution : http://www.radioplayer.co.uk
I'm glad someone else has problems with the new radios ours is too clever by one and a half.Well I live in the South West and could get it almost down to Bordeaux on MW albeit with a few birds chattering in the background ( Only way I can describe the sound) That was in my old Nissan Primera.
I can't work the new fangled stereo in the camper well enough to be able to say on that.
I also bought a DAB radio in the Uk not realising they don't work in France,doh!!
Does anyone know if this works with iPad Air, sounds pretty good.To get it through the internet, get a VPN ( proxy server ), it will allow you to use the iplayer, skygo, and other catch up tv systems, it works by routing your connection through a UK server, so the systems think you are in the UK, can be used for American online TV services as well by selecting an American server. You can also connect multiple devices
We use Hotspot Shield Elite.
Correct. Anyone, anywhere can listed to BBC radio programmes via the internet.BBC TV and Radio are different I think, apart from the obvious that one has pictures and the other doesn't. I believe listening to internet BBC radio in Europe doesn't have the same problems as iPlayer, which detects if you are not an upstanding British Citizen.
The web address for Radio 4 is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_radio_four
If someone overseas at the moment wants to try this I would be interested to know if they can pick it up.
