This post explains how to unblock SeeSaw from the outside UK.

What is SeeSaw?

British Internet users now have access to a new online TV service, called SeeSaw. The service is an ad-supported platform containing limited content that is available for free. It offers 3,000 hours of content from BBC, Channel 4 and Five — independent broadcasters also will offer TV episodes and other content for SeeSaw.

All content is free but includes 60-second advertisements that are shown before and after each TV episode a viewer watches.  “SeeSaw has been designed for both viewers and advertisers,” said Pierre-Jean Sebert, SeeSaw CEO, during a press conference.  “It’s the best TV, collected together in one place on a site that’s easy to use.”

How to unblock SeeSaw from the outside UK

SeeSaw is available only for UK viewers, with users outside the UK presented with an error screen before a video loads.

In order to be able to watch SeeSaw from anywhere in the world, you need a VPN service that provides access to a UK server. This way, when you connect to the VPN you will be seen as leaving in the UK and you will be granted full access to all shows available. This is the easiest way to unblock SeeSaw!

Unfortunately, at this time, there is no good free UK VPN service, but here are some commercial services that I recommend you try in order to unblock SeeSaw:

After you subscribe to one of these services, you need to setup a VPN connection and you are ready to unblock SeeSaw. Plus, you will be able to access all other UK restricted sites like BBC iPlayer and ITV.


To sum up, you need to get access to a VPN that offers servers located in the UK in order to unblock SeeSaw from the outside UK and watch all the programs for free.

    For $55 a year I can access US & UK TV with VPN Television (Strong VPN)

    For sure this is is the BEST deal on the interent…

    I had BananaVPN before and got tired of the downtime and bad customer service.

    Hope this helps!

    I have tried many free VPN sites, and the easiest and fastest so far for UK sites was Astrill. It also has an easy switch function to two US proxies. I managed to obtain a free beta version by following their Twitter offers, and it is so easy to use and gets all the UK iPlayers and On Demand TV channels at a good streaming speed. Well worth a test if you can get a free trial, and I am going to subscribe as the introductory paid offer is very reasonable at under §30 for a year

    Excellent info, great solutions. It can be frustrating for people not to be able to access things they want to so that they can watch shows or what-have-you because there’s so much great stuff out there. Let freedom ring!

    It’s a great article. Finally I could watch first episodes of The Apprentice on however the author is wrong about the VPNs as THERE IS at least one good free UK VPN service. I’m using SecurityKISS VPN and collecting info about others to make a review website. It may be a good topic for another article.

    I tried StrongVPN and HideMyAss but it was just unstable, disconnecting once and again. The only viable option was to use Exclusive Tunneling. You’ll google out more details.
