Are you stuck outside the UK and want to watch the live streams from the Winter Olympics in Sochi? That is easy and can be fixed. BBC will broadcast day and night from Sochi and first of all at BBC2. To be able to watch BBC2 live stream in iPlayer or just simply the live stream from outside the UK, get yourself a VPN provider with IP addresses in the UK, and you are ready to go within seconds.
The best provider with IPs in the UK is probably HideMyAss or PureVPN. Visit both providers websites and decide for the VPN provider that seems easiest to use and with the best policies to you. Personally, I would go for HideMyAss, since they have a much nicer refund policy (30-day refund guarantee if you use less than 10GB of bandwidth).
If you want to know more about HideMyAss or PureVPN, read my reviews as you click their names. If you want to know more about watching the Winter Olympics online, read my longer and more thorough article in my IP Guide.
If you have a subscription with either PureVPN or HideMyAss, do the following steps.
Watching Winter Olympics on BBC live from abroad
- Download the VPN client of either PureVPN or HideMyAss.
- Connect to one of their servers in the UK.
- Wait some minutes or restart your browser.
- Visit the BBC2 or your requested live stream and get going.
- Enjoy the Winter Olympics online!
You just, therefore, enjoy the Winter Olympics online and hopefully, there will be some medals given out to inhabitants from the United Kingdom as well!
