How Google Play prevents you from downloading country restricted apps

When you created your account on Google Play, you gave permission to Google Play to access the full details of your Android phone or Android Tablet. This allowed Google Play to see your telephone number, your network details (such as your Internet service provider) as well as other details on your Android phone or tablet.

And since Google Play now has this full access to your Android phone or tablet’s network details, you cannot fool it by changing your country IP address to a UK IP address. And when it sees from your network details that your Internet provider is located outside of the UK, you will be denied access to the UK only downloadable apps, such as the BBC Media Player and BBC iPlayer.

So to get around this problem, my UK IT partner has uploaded onto this site the latest BBC Media Player and other UK TV Player apps from Google Play for you to freely download outside of the UK.
