This video shows how to set up a UK VPN on an Ipad so you can watch BBC Iplayer. You can also use it on a PC, Mac, phone or laptop - the subscription covers all devices.
It's a simple method of changing your IP address when you're using your iPad online. This means that you can switch it when you find you are being blocked because of your location,
So for sites like BBC iPlayer and ITV player use a UK VPN. For American based media sites like Hulu and Pandora switch to a US IP address on your iPad. It even allows you to switch versions of things like Netflix and Amazon's film service - where there's usually much more stuff on the US version.
Setting up a VPN sounds much more difficult that it really is, hopefully if you watch the video you can get yours set up in a few minutes.
