Don't get your hopes up too high. I bet the BBC will find some loophole
so that they don't have to make iplayer available across Europe.

The BBC broadcasts programmes that have been paid for by licence fee
payers. They have been paid for to be broadcast to licence fee payers in
the UK. If they are to be made available outside the UK it should surely
involve some form of payment by those external viewers?

What about the online on demand services from other UK broadcasters,
should they be available free outside the UK?

Why should a UK licence payer not be able to watch UK anywhere in Europe?

Indeed, but sadly we are leaving the EU so $ky, BT etc. will be able to continue gouging or resume doing so.
