Greetings on the morning after the night before. Im sure you all enjoyed episode 1 of Cabin Pressure Series 4 as much as I did. Certainly if the amount of activity on Twitter (#CabinPressure became a trending topic worldwide and in the UK) and the number of comments on the Timbuktu episode post is anything to go by, it was a hugely popular episode!
I’ve had some reports that ‘iPlayer doesn’t work outside the UK’ or ‘Its only available to UK users’, which simply isn’t true. Certain services from the BBC are UK-only, but access to listen again is not one of them. The iPlayer App is UK only, so you won’t be able to access the episodes through that on iPhone, Android, iPad or other tablets using that – more information here. Unfortunately “There are currently no plans to offer the app to international listeners.”.
You can, however, access it using a web browser on desktop PC, Mac, maybe iPads and tablets as well. I have had plenty of reports from all over the world saying that it works absolutely fine (Including USA/Canada, South America, all over Europe, Asia and Australasia) so keep trying! The links you can try are as follows:
- Cabin Pressure Programme Page – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01l02j9
- iPlayer – http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01l02j9/Cabin_Pressure_Series_4_Timbuktu/
I hope this helps – If you’ve successfully listened again outside the UK, please leave information in the comments as to how you did it in case it can help others. Leave as much information as you can such as what device you are using, which browser and which link. Thank you!
