Hooray!!! The long wait is over. Formula 1 is back in Europe. And that means that you should connect to our UK VPN servers, go to bbc.co.uk and check when you can watch all the action LIVE. If you are not member of HideIPVPN community, don’t worry. We will tell you what is it all about. First reminder and some good/bad news. Last year BBC signed new deal with F1 and Sky for broadcasts of F1 GP’s in TV. You can find all details here, but to sum up – BBC can show live only Formula 1 Grand Prix races on European tracks. So, this is bad news for all F1 fans around the world as BBC broadcast was one of the best you can get and what is more important was available for free if one could get hands on VPN technology or SmartDNS UK unlock.
For our customers this is nothing new, they simply connect to selected VPN server in UK and watch BBC Live or on demand via BBC iPlayer. For those of you who are first time on our blog, few words of explanation.
VPN server acts as an intermediary between you and the target site/service. It hides your IP address and replaces it with it own IP. Site like BBC (geo-restricted for UK users only) simply sees our UK based VPN (thinking it is you) but not real you in any other country in the world.
Hopefully, next Grand Prix in Monaco you all will be able to watch att BBC vie our upcoming SmartDNS service. It is scheduled for start in May and we are doing our best to keep up with our promise. Smart DNS will be even easier to use than VPN and will allow you (but not anonymously or with improved safety as does VPN) to access geo restricted sites even on devices without VPN support like Windows Phone devices!
Now, the most important part – Gran Premio de ESPAÑA 2013 in Catalunya – how to watch. So, as we said – connect to any UK VPN server and follow those links:
11.05.2013 at 12:10 (UK time) – F1 2013, The Spanish Grand Prix – Qualifying
12.05.2013 at 12:10 (UK time) – F1 2013, The Spanish Grand Prix – Race
How do you bet, who will win?
