Best VPN to Watch Peaky Blinders Season 06 on BBC iPlayer in US or Outside UK

We have tested and tried a number of paid VPN services but Express and Nord tops our list. We have judged a VPN on speed, number of servers, security, app interface and many other features.

NordVPN – Biggest Collection of US Servers to Unblock iPlayer outside the US

It’s hard to pick a number between ExpressVPN and NordVPN because both are amazingly fast and work with almost all known streaming services. But for iPlayer, we’ll pick NordVPN here because of its sheer number of servers in the UK.

NordVPN offers a staggering count of 440+ servers in the UK which means a sureshot connection to iPlayer anytime you want to watch Peaky Blinders on iPlayer.

Another reason why we would recommend NordVPN is the speed. Based on a test we did, we found out NordVPN offered a downloading speed of 78.2 Mbps while the same offered 58.2 Mbps in uploading on a 100 Mbps connection.

While NordVPN and ExpressVPN both seem to be on the more expensive end of the VPN price curve, NordVPN’s two-year deals offer hope to VPN users who wish to enjoy top-quality service at an affordable rate as their 2-year plan can be purchased for just USD 3.71 a month.  

ExpressVPN – Best VPN to stream iPlayer in the US

No VPN talk is ever complete without discussing ExpressVPN, the industry leader and one of the very few VPN apps that pretty much unblock every channel known to man. And we’re not exaggerating. ExpressVPN has a collection of more than 160+ servers solely in the UK.

One server doesn’t unblock iPlayer? No worries! You have 159 more servers. You will be an old man before you try out all their channels. And Based on their servers, ExpressVPN has been able to unblock iPlayer and Peaky Blinders on the first try.

Another top feature ExpressVPN has is its speed. Truth be told, no VPN has been able to show a candle to ExpressVPN’s speedy servers and apps. Based on a 100 Mbps connection, we got 90.6 Mbps in download speed and more than 60.2 Mbps in upload.

Compared to NordVPN, ExpressVPN is a bit more expensive but to tell you the truth, no one buying ExpressVPN has ever regretted investing money in this app as it’s so easy to connect and so fast, you almost forget you are connected to a VPN. 

ExpressVPN’s plan can be acquired for a one time payment of USD 99.95 which gives you 15 months  (12+3) worth of hassle-free streaming experience, costing you around USD 6.67 a month while also getting you a 35% discount.

Short answer? Because iPlayer is blocked outside the UK. Long answer? Most streaming channels restrict their content to a specific region due to copyright issues, or rather to avoid them. This issue is the same with Netflix and Disney+, except these channels cover more ground compared to iPlayer which is restricted to the UK only.

Connecting to a VPN’s UK server will get you an IP from the UK and you will basically be able to trick iPlayer into believing you’re from the UK and you will be able to stream Peaky Blinders on iPlayer from outside the UK.

The immense anxiety and stress led Tommy to put a revolver on himself. However, Tommy fails to finish his life as Arthur unloads the gun. Tommy tries to kill the leader of the public army, Oswald Moseley, which makes Captain Swing, an officer of this army, take revenge by cruelly killing Polly.

After burying Polly, the actress Helen McCory, who played the role of Polly, was tributed by observing 3 minutes silence as she passed away last year at the age of 52. Her son Micheal Grey decided to take vengeance on Tommy for his mother’s blood.

The episode shows that Tommy went to meet Micheal after four years to discuss the whiskey business at New Foundation French Territory while in England; Arthur was out of his mind remembering the murder of his Aunt Polly and wife Linda, which led him to be high on whiskey and opium.

Moreover, Tommy trapped Micheal by informing the police about Micheal’s opium trade business. He offers business deals to Gina’s uncle, Jack Nelson, Boston’s most powerful businessman.

Tommy returns to England when Tommy’s new wife, Lizzie, informs him that his daughter(Ruby Shelby) is severely sick. The next day, Tommy meets Micheal to bring back his Powder business when Micheal returns from the prison
