Agreed. We do not condone the use of get_iplayer to breach the licence
of the content that the BBC makes available. Please do not ask us how to
It's not necessary to have a TV license to access watch/listen again BBC programmes from iPlayer.
3.2.1 If you are outside the UK
You may not access, view and/or listen to certain parts of BBC Content (such as video or live television services) using BBC Online Services if you are outside the UK, although you may, in accordance with the Terms, access and view bbc.co.uk or other websites and listen to some (but not all) BBC radio content. The types of BBC Content that may be available outside the UK will usually depend on the BBC's agreements with the persons who own rights in such content.
