BBC One is the most popular TV channel in the UK and one reason why is the TV shows. There are a large range of TV programmes shown on BBC One including those focusing on Drama, childrens TV, Comedy, sport, entertainment, news and much more.

The most popular BBC One TV shows are Eastenders, Doctor Who, Strictly Come Dancing, BBC News and Match of the Day.

How to watch BBC One online in the UK

If you do not want to miss any of the great programmes on BBC One and you cannot get to watch TV because your partner or children are hogging the remote you need to find a way to watch BBC One online. Fortunately there is a very easy way for people living in the UK to watch BBC live. All you need is a computer and internet connection.

You can watch BBC One online within the UK by visiting the BBC One website. To watch you need to click the watch live button at the top of the page. This will direct you to a video page accompanied with details of the TV programme that is currently airing, as well as what is on next. You will also have the option on this page to watch other BBC TV channels online.

This is the easiest way to watch BBC One live free online, but it only works if you are in the UK. If you go on holidays this website will track your ip and recognise that you are visiting from outside the UK and then you will not be able to watch BBC One online. The good news is that there is another way to watch BBC One online when you are abroad and that is covered below.

Watch BBC One online abroad

Many people that go on holidays or move away from the UK still want to keep in touch and up to date with their favorite TV shows while they are away. Unfortunately the BBC One website does not allow internet users outside the UK to watch BBC One online. However you can use an identity cloaker or VPN/proxy service.

There are free ways to watch BBC One online abroad but they are not very reliable so I would recommend the paid methods. Identity cloaker is reasonably priced at less than $7 a month. Not only does it allow you to watch BBC One online abroad, it also allows you to protect your computer from hackers.
