In this guide I’m going to show you how to watch Top Gear on BBC iPlayer in Canada.
Top Gear is a very popular British TV show that is mostly about cars. It started in 1977 and was re-launched in 2002 and has, yet again, become very popular with more than 350 million viewers each week.
If you’re in Canada and you want to Watch Top Gear on your own schedule (on demand) you will want to be able to access the BBC iPlayer abroad.
The unfortunate part about the BBC iPlayer for most Canadians is that, because you live outside of the United Kingdom you’re blocked from accessing the hulu-like BBC iPlayer.
Never fear! I’m here to show you that you can watch Top Gear on BBC iPlayer in Canada (and around the World!)
The great thing is that it’s very easy to do! Even better, by following this guide you’ll also be able to access other amazing geographically blocked sites like Hulu, US Netflix, Pandora and so much more.
Back to the task at hand… Top Gear here in the Great White North.
First Things First – “Suit Up & Prepare For Virtual Travel”
When I say “suit up & prepare for virtual travel ” I really mean “equip yourself with a powerful piece of software“. Once you have this ally in your corner you will be able to virtually gallivant around to 53 countries around the world; most notable for the purpose of this guide is the UK.
I have been using HMA (the amazing software) for nearly two years now and I think it’s so great that I recommended it to my own mother. Now that’s saying something.
Grab Your Passport & Pack You’re Bags… We’re (Virtually) Going To The United Kingdom
After you sign up for HMA you will want to download the program to your computer. (If you’re trying to figure out how to set up HMA on your iPhone, don’t worry there’s a guide for that too). But for this guide on Top Gear we’re going to focus on how to access the BBC iPlayer in Canada on your computer.
After you have downloaded HMA you’re going to want to use the “Quick VPN Country Change” setting on the dashboard. Go ahead and set HMA to randomly selected one of the 39 servers in the United Kingdom and click “Connect to VPN”.
Give HMA a few seconds to work it’s magic on the back end and then voila! your computer is now virtually residing in the United Kingdom.
Guess What You Can Do Now? You Can Watch Top Gear On BBC iPlayer In Canada
Just like that you were able to pack your virtual bags, get a virtual stamp in your virtual passport and virtually fly all the way over the “pond” to the UK.
Now that you’re virtually rubbing shoulders with the British Royal Family guess what else you can do? Yup, you got it! You can now stream Top Gear from iPlayer here in Canada!
