Hi,

There are a number of ways to achieve this depending on what you have:

1. If you have a laptop, or your PC is near your TV, you could connect its RGB or HDMI port to the corresponding port on your TV, if it has one of those, and effectively use your TV as a PC monitor or display.

2. A Smart TV or Smart Set top box (PVR) or Blu-Ray/DVD player with an internet connection. But do check that BBC Iplayer is supported.

Hope that helps,

Best Regards,

Richard
