How to unblock and watch BBC iPlayer outside UK with free UK VPN?

BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation, is a world-famous public service broadcaster widely appreciated by people from English speaking countries. BBC now offer an online broadcasting service named as BBC iPlayer, on which web surfers can watch live BBC TV channels, catch up on TV programmes they missed and view exclusive content on BBC iPlayer.

However, watching BBC iPlayer outside UK is not always easy. BBC uses geo-blocking to make sure BBC iPlayer only available to local British residents. In other word, BBC iPlayer is only accessible to IP addresses based inside UK. But accessing BBC iPlayer outside UK is still possible: Just use a UK VPN to get a British IP and thus to unblock BBC iPlayer outside UK.
