In this article we’re going to look at the easiest method to watch UK TV in Portugal. It’s so easy in fact you’ll be able to achieve it in just 6 simple steps.
If you’re a novice computer, tablet or phone user then you need not worry either as it’s extremely beginner friendly.
If you’re an expat in Portugal, on holiday in Portugal or for whatever other reason you’re in Portugal then you’ll probably already know that UK TV services are blocked.
The easiest way to access UK TV in Portugal is to use online streaming services such as BBC iPlayer and all you’re going to need to do that is a simple app called a VPN. Below we explain all.

All that is left to do now is visit your favourite UK TV streaming service and rather than be blocked like before you’ll now be able to watch anything.
