How to get the new BFBS TV Player

New features and more channels are planned for the new BFBS TV Player, giving you the best legal way to watch British TV wherever you are serving overseas.

The BFBS TV Player is only available to British Armed Forces and MoD personnel and their dependants serving or posted overseas. While you are in the UK you may use the BFBS TV Player but only limited TV channels will be available due to Rights restrictions required by our broadcast partners. Please be aware that you may be committing a civil and/or military offence if you try to circumvent these limitations or allow the BFBS TV Player to be used by non-authorised personnel.


Other ways to receive BFBS whilst overseas, on Ops or at sea

Whilst the new BFBS TV Player is great for our overseas audiences in locations with good internet access, we know there are many places without fast internet connections or with no internet connection at all!
