Hi
I have an ipad with location set to UK and can access the free BBC iplayer app on the app store.

i am trying to set it up for a family member but theirs is set To NZ so iplayer doesnt appear in the store.

if i try to change their location to UK It says i cannot do this without unsubscribing from itunes match, which is set to NZ and for which they have paid for a year upfront.

Can anyone advise on the most painless way to change locations to download the free iplayer app onto their ipad? Or can I get the iplayer app via another route? P.s. I will be using app via VPN.

Re legality, lets say i have relatives visiting from the UK Who are license payers and want to watch whilst over here.




My EPL football websites: Get the results but hide the score of your team at HidetheScore.net. Compare league positions with wage bills at RealPremierLeague.net.

This is what I would do:

try turning off iTunes Match from

Settings --> iTunes & App Store.

Then log out of your NZ account by tapping on your apple id and choose sign out. Then sign in with a UK iTunes account (this is a must). Then download the iPlayer app from the UK App Store.

Once it is installed, sign out from your UK account and then sign back in with your NZ account. Finally turn iTunes Match on again (don't worry about redownloading your music as any cached music should still be there)

Whenever you need to access iPlayer, log into your VPN first before launching

I frequently change the location of the App Store by doing this:

1. Open App Store
2. Log out of the currently logged in account.
3. Log in to your UK account.
4. The App Store will tell you your account is only valid for use in the UK store, press ok and it will redirect you to the UK store.

To get back to NZ, simply log back in to your NZ account.
