How do I watch BBC on Roku? This is a question that seems to come up every so often. These Roku channels will help you find and watch the shows you crave from the BBC on your Roku.


There really isn't a BBC America or BBC International Channel on Roku to watch inside the US. To watch the true BBC channel inside the U.S.A you would need to do some complicated Roku trickery and fool your Roku into believing it was actually located inside the UK. This can be done although it requires you to change your Router settings and subscribe to a 3rd party service that gives you a UK IP address. You can read more on how to do this here.
