That's because they're geo-blocked against use outside the UK. You'd have to use a VPN to make them think you're in the UK.

I use a paid-for VPN called "Hide My Ass" which works very well.

There are free VPN's available, but in my experience in general they don't work as well as the paid ones.

This is because you are unable to get a VPN for Apple TV.  Which ever device you download the VPN, thats the device it will only work on. There are a few methods of setting a VPN up through your WiFi but i dont know how that works.

 There is a few alternative ways you can have it working. For Example:

-Add VPN to iPad or iPhone, Open iPlayer, Play to Apple TV (or if needed,turn on mirroring)

-Use VPN on Laptop, Open iPlayer, connect HDMI cable from TV to Apple TV and connect to Laptop

If you need any other help just ask :)
