VR will be made available closer to the time on iOS and Android devices, as well as the Gear VR, Oculus Go and PlayStation VR headsets.

Looks like it's not a case of waiting for the store to refresh but you're waiting on the BBCs end.

Will this be region locked ? There are some rumours that it will work only in the UK. Im not living in the UK and I really want to watch the World Cup in VR... I do have a UK acount too but will that work if it's region locked ?

If you mean if it's working on my notebook's browser then no...

"BBC iPlayer only works in the UK. Sorry, it’s due to rights issues."

Well I meant your PS4 more so than your notebook tbh but 

 

If you're already clued up on the rights issues then I'm guessing you already know that the same BBC feed isn't likely to work?

On the PS4 the bbc iplayer app starts normally, it doesnt say anything about region or rights issues but it's asking me for an subscription so I haven't been able to get past that to see if it actually works.

Well then you might be in slightly more luck?

Does it actually say subscription or just a sign-up/sign-in?

Where even are you, does the BBC have a normal broadcast or demand service available?

No. I live in Europe and there is no BBC services in my country at all. Would using a VPN be against psn TOS ? But even if so there aren't any free unlimited bandwith VPNs :(. I want to watch the World Cup matches in VR so bad...

Looks like the only way is to pack a bag, catch a train to Dover, get a hotel in Folkestone with decent broadband, and maybe do some tourist sightseeing while you're there.

Haha with that money I'd fly straight to Russia and watch the World Cup live. I'll see tomorrow when the app is released if it will work or not. Have a good day !
