How You Can Watch BBC Panorama FIFA’s Dirty Secrets Outside The UK

bbc panorama How You Can Watch BBC Panorama FIFA’s Dirty Secrets Outside The UK

On Monday, BBC Panorama will air “FIFA’s Dirty Secrets,” a 30 minute exposé that “investigates corruption allegations against some of the FIFA officials who will vote on England’s World Cup bid. Reporter Andrew Jennings exposes new evidence of bribery, and accuses some executives of taking kickbacks. He also uncovers the secret agreements that could guarantee FIFA a financial bonanza if England hosts the World Cup.”

While the most explosive soccer documentary will premiere on BBC 1 television in the United Kingdom on Monday night, you unfortunately won’t be able to see it anywhere on U.S. television. BBC America has no plans on showing it. The program will be available on BBC’s iPlayer but only for residents in the United Kingdom.

So here are your best options to watch the program either live or on delay:

  1. Sign up for My Private Network to watch the episode on the BBC iPlayer,
  2. Try Expat Shield which is free, but only runs on Windows (read review)
  3. Last but not least, we don’t endorse or advocate this, but there’s always BitTorrent.

I wish we didn’t have to sneak around to find a solution for this. But the outcome of what happens after the episode airs may have dire consequences on the entire World Cup 2018 bid, so it’s one of those programs that will be a must-see for soccer fans. But the frustrating aspect is that most people outside the United Kingdom may never get an opportunity to watch it.

If you have suggestions of how to watch the episode, please post them in the comments section below. The program is scheduled to premiere on BBC 1 at 3:30pm ET Monday.

In the meantime, please enjoy these two videos below which feature reporter Andrew Jennings trying to interview FIFA President Sepp Blatter and FIFA Vice-President Jack Warner.
