Just in time for tomorrow’s UK release of the Fire TV, the British Broadcasting Corporation has released BBC iPlayer, BBC News, and BBC Sport apps for the Fire TV. As expected, the apps are geographically restricted, meaning they can only be downloaded if the country setting in your Amazon account is set to the United Kingdom. Even if you installed the apps on a non-UK Fire TV, the apps themselves are IP restricted, meaning you would only be able to view content if you were connected to the internet through a British internet service provider. I’ll be posting a guide on how to bypass these restrictions later today.
