TV programming from the UK

During the Coronavirus lockdown, I started to watch some Japanese TV channels.

Discovered AXN channel which has the Britsh TV program VERA. ( DCI Vera Stanhope) and I am totally hooked. I really like this program and would like to start from the beginning.

I have a VPN with a UK IP address. I was hoping to find a site where I can binge-watch. I have tried to go to BritBox but it doesn't quite accept my VPN IP address (I think)

Are there any UK ex-pats here that watches UK TV from Japan? How do you do it?

Does your VPN also have a US or CA IP? I've seen it on Acorn streaming https://acorn.tv/vera/ (usually paid) and Hoopla Digital via public library (perhaps just US, specific residency requirements) https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/11896145

Do you have a Vancouver library card? They are offering Acorn until the end of 2020 https://www.vpl.ca/digital-library/acorn-tv

Great idea!!!

However, my VPL card needs to be reactivated again. No activity for 10 plus years.

I do have a US IP address via my VPN. I will check Acorn out.

Thank you for these ideas.
