What is UKTV Play, and how can I watch it?

UKTV Play is a free on-demand streaming TV service. Its content is provided by some of the popular UK channels, providing some classic programming direct to your Smart TV or streaming device.

UKTV Play provides content from the Dave, Drama and Yesterday channels, and is free to view. You can watch Dave, Drama and Yesterday live via the website or any of their apps. There are also shows from W, Alibi, Gold and Eden, but you will have to pay a subscription to access these from their partner platforms.

There’s comedy, drama, and entertainment, with plenty of documentaries thrown in for the most curious minds. Navigation is straightforward, choosing between a selection of categories or the complete A–Z listing. With thousands of episodes on offer, you’ll never be short of something to watch.

For fun lovers, you can now watch Comedians Giving Lectures, online, or Taskmaster, Red Dwarf, Not Going Out and even shows like Auf Weidersehen Pet from deep in the archives. Drama lovers can pick through a mighty 332 episodes of The Bill, or from a selection of Eastenders episodes, New Tricks or London’s Burning.

If you’re worried about missing out on your favourite shows, don’t be. Once registered, you can add any shows or movies to your list and watch them later. You can also set a 4-digit PIN code to protect the kids from adult and content rated shows.

UKTV Play is easy to watch. You’ll find their apps on all of the popular streaming devices, Smart TVs, and your smartphones and tablets.

If you’re looking for some classic British TV, well, you’re in the right place.

How can I watch UKTV Play with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator creates a virtual location in the UK to make UKTV Play think that’s where you are. Once the unique hub supplies the UKTV Play servers with the appropriate location, there’s nothing to stop you from streaming episode after episode of your favourite British box sets.

No complicated settings or software installation required

What makes StreamLocator so much better than its alternatives is how little you have to do to access international content. There are no apps or software to install. You don’t have to load in new DNS profiles. It’s a unique plug and play system that keeps running in the background, waiting for an opportunity to grant you the access you need.

Because our hub works with your router, it works with any of your internet-enabled devices automatically. It makes life so much easier when viewing via Smart TVs and streaming sticks. Whatever you choose: Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV devices, Chromecast or anything else, StreamLocator takes care of the business end of the operation so you don’t even have to think about it. Connect via your smartphone and tablet, and it takes care of those too.

Our ingenious hub is shipped to you when you take out a StreamLocator subscription, and plugs into any WiFi router. Your network speeds are completely unaffected, and your existing online activities will continue to behave just as they always have.

And how about this? You can connect as many devices as you want; each of which can connect to a different service in a different country. StreamLocator handles it all without a problem. We told you there was nothing quite like it, didn’t we?

How to watch UKTV Play from outside the UK

Unfortunately, UKTV Play uses geolocation technology to demand its viewers are located in the UK. This annoying issue is due to programming rights. We don’t think this should stop you from watching their shows though, wherever you are.

VPN and Smart DNS can help viewers get around the geo-blocks, providing virtual locations just as StreamLocator does, but our system offers so much more.

How to register for UKTV Play from outside the UK

Is UKTV Play free? Yes, but the service requires viewers to register before they can access its shows. You will need an active email address, yet with StreamLocator covering the location blocks, it’s no different to registering as though you were in the UK.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch UKTV Play from outside the UK?

How do I get UKTV Play on my TV? Well, VPN and Smart DNS are the most popular ways to get around streaming channels’ location blockades. They are both intelligent systems that have given viewers access to blocked content for years.

However, providers are getting savvier to these systems and finding new ways to spot them and block them. That’s where StreamLocator is a step ahead. Our hub finds out precisely what each server needs before choosing how to get around the blocks. It supplies the information required to acquire access without you even knowing it’s doing it.
