If you want, you can download add-ons for Kodi on your computer which eases you to watch movies and shows flawlessly. However, no all add-ons are available at all locations. Some of them are location based. If you are fond of watching movies from BBC iplayer, then you can watch only in the UK, not in another country.
You can make use of VPN software to stream BBC outside the UK. This is a type of software which hides your current IP and changes it to the desired location.

You can go with this service. It is secured and well-defined VPN service accessible from any part of the world.
