How to Watch Free British TV From Abroad on a VLC Media Player


When you're on vacation abroad and you're dying to catch up with your favorite British comedies, VLC media player has a network stream option built into its player. Enter the network address of the streaming British programming and VLC will buffer a live stream of the selected channel. A utility (see Resources) that uses Windows Command Prompt to automatically enter each stream in VLC makes setting channels faster than manually entering them.

  • Download "btv.exe" (see Resources) and right-click the ZIP folder, then select the "Extract" option from the drop-down menu.

  • Double-click the "btv" folder and then double-click the "btv" executable file to launch the Command Prompt window.

  • Type the number of the British channel stream you wish to input in VLC and then press the "Enter" key. VLC Media Player auto-launches with the stream you selected.
