So if you register & use a UK address can you then get it on your tablet or laptop in Spain ?

You do need a UK VPN or smart DNS server as well. The address is so that the Iplayer knows which region you are in to provide local news and the like.

In my opinion SmartDNS is far better than VPN especially if you are on a connection under 4mbps
