How to watch British TV in Greece in 5 steps

British TV Greece

If you’re looking for the quickest and easiest method to watch British TV in Greece then this is the guide for you.

In this guide I’m going to teach you how you can watch British TV in Greece or anywhere else in the world for that matter and you won’t need satellite TV.

Don’t worry if you’re not good with technology either because these solutions are really simple and take just 5 steps to set-up.

British TV is excellent, this goes without saying. However, when you’re in Greece it can be difficult to get your fix of favourite British TV programmes.

So if you’re missing your favourite free to air channels like BBC or any subscription channels like Sky or BT Sport, read on to find out how you can watch them in Greece.

Watching British TV your choices

When it comes to watching British TV in Greece you’ve got three choices.

  • Option 1: Watch on a computer, laptop, tablet or phone
  • Option 2: Watch on a TV using an Amazon Firestick or Fire TV
  • Option 3: Watch on any other device such as a Smart TV

Depending on what solution is most suitable for you depends on how you can achieve it. The easiest way without question is to watch on either your computer, laptop, tablet or phone. Or if you want to watch on an actual TV then using an Amazon Firestick or Fire TV.

For this you’ll need to get an app called a VPN which I’ll explain below. More specifically you’ll need a UK VPN, but more on that later.

If you want to watch on a regular TV, Smart TV or any other kind of device not mentioned then you’ll need to get a VPN Router. This is a physical hardware device.

They’re also pretty easy to use but will cost a little more and takes a little bit more set-up.

Choose what type of device you want to watch on and then follow the steps below allowing you to access UK TV in Greece or any other country.

Option 1: Watch on computer, laptop, tablet or phone

If you want to watch British TV including BBC, ITV and others in Greece on your computer, laptop, tablet or phone then you’ve chosen one of the easiest and quickest options.

For this you’ll need to get yourself a VPN service. A VPN allows you to disguise your location allowing you to watch British TV in Greece. There are hundreds of different companies who sell VPN services.

I recommend ExpressVPN because they work with more channels than most including BBC iPlayer and they’ve got a 30-day money back guarantee if you can’t get it working. However, the following three will all be suitable.

  1. ExpressVPN
  2. NordVPN
  3. CyberGhost VPN

Once you’ve selected one of the providers above, follow the steps below. I’m using ExpressVPN in my example but the process is much the same with the other providers.

How to watch British TV in Greece:

  1. Visit the ExpressVPN website and sign up for their service.
  2. Download their app for your device from the Products section of their website.
  3. Open the app and login or activate the app when required. (You can get the activation code from the My Account section of the ExpressVPN website)
  4. Press Selected Location and then press United Kingdom.
  5. Wait for the app to connect.

Once the app has connected any websites you visit or other apps you use will think you’re in the UK. This means you can now either visit the websites of BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Channel 4, Channel 5, TV Player or use their apps and more.

You’ll now be able to watch British TV in Greece without being blocked.

Option 2: Watch on an Amazon Firestick / Fire TV

If using a computer, tablet or phone is too small and fiddly for you and you want to watch British TV in Greece on an actual TV then using the Amazon Firestick or Fire TV is the best method.

You’ll need to get an Amazon Firestick or Fire TV from the UK. You’ll also need a VPN service like above.

I recommend you use ExpressVPN because they’re one of few that actually work with the Firestick / Fire TV. However, there are a couple of other choices too. Just select one of these:

  1. ExpressVPN
  2. NordVPN
  3. CyberGhost VPN

I’m using ExpressVPN in my example below because I like the fact they’ve got a risk-free 30-day money back guarantee. You can also get 3-months free if you sign up for a year but you can choose any of the above, they all work fine.

How to watch British TV in Greece:

  1. Visit the ExpressVPN website, sign up and choose a subscription length.
  2. On your Amazon Firestick / Fire TV press the Search button and type ‘ExpressVPN’.
  3. Select to download or install the app.ExpressVPN Amazon app
  4. Press the Home button and open the newly installed ExpressVPN app.
  5. Login when required and then press the Choose Location button.
  6. Select United Kingdom and click on it. Press the Connect button if it doesn’t automatically connect.

Once the ExpressVPN app has connected press the Home button on your Amazon remote control. You can now open any of the British TV streaming apps like BBC iPlayer, TV Player, ITV Hub and more.

It’s also possible to use a web browser like Firefox or Silk Browser to access other British TV services that don’t have Amazon apps.

Option 3: Watch on any other type of device

If you’ve got another type of device such as a Smart TV or something not listed in one of the sections above then the solution is different.

Rather than using a VPN app, you’ll need to buy a hardware VPN router. Basically this does the same as a VPN app but is suitable for devices like Smart TVs that don’t support VPN apps.

I recommend you look at buying the InvizBox 2. It’s not only cheaper than most alternatives but it’s also more powerful. This is important because it gives you better speeds meaning you’ll be able to watch British TV in Greece without buffering.

You can buy an Invizbox 2 by using this link. Once it arrives follow the included instructions and create a new hotspot for a UK connection.

You can then connect your Smart TV or other device to the newly created hotspot. You can also connect via wire if your device is near enough and you want maximum speeds.

You’ll now be able to watch any British TV apps on your TV or device.

Conclusion: How to watch British TV in Greece

Watching UK TV in Greece doesn’t need to be difficult and if you’re a tech novice then it doesn’t need to be complicated either.

For most devices like computers, laptops, tablets, phones and even the Amazon Firestick and Fire TV you can get a simple app called a VPN that does all the hard work for you.

If you want to watch British TV in Greece using this method just press the large orange button below to get my recommended provider ExpressVPN.

Once you’ve signed up, download their app and connect to the UK. You’ll then be able to start watching live UK TV or catch-up on programmes you missed.

If you’ve got any other kind of device like a Smart TV then you’ll need to get a hardware VPN router. You can read about that (the InvizBox 2) in the section above.

Don’t forget ExpressVPN has a 30-day money back guarantee. If you can’t get it working then simply get your money back. You can also get 3-months free on their annual package which saves up to 49%.
