Blocking BBC iPlayer

Go to solution

Hi All,

Does anyone know of a way I can block BBC iPlayer from being used within my Broadband connection?

Hi, you could try blocking the IP address in your routers firewall or in the hosts file of windows PCs.

IE: add the line 127.0.0.1 212.58.246.54

Or the line 127.0.0.1 www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer

You may end up blocking more of the BBC site than you intended though. Still worth a try you can always undo the changes if you don't like the result.

See http://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/check-if-you-need-one/topics/bbc-iplayer-and-the-tv-licence

 

From September, you need a TV licence to watch any programmes on iPlayer.
